    Every time I plug my Nexus S into my iMac, it is recognized by the iMac and iPhoto 11 but iPhoto 11 doesn't show any images or videos awaiting download / import from the Nexus S. I can go to File --> Import in iPhoto and navigate to the Camera folder on the Nexus S, see the files, and import them. Photos import fine but I get the following sample error message when I try to import videos -- "Unreadable file. The following file could not be imported. The file is an unrecognized format. /Volumes/NO NAME/DCIM/Camera/VID_20110516_112428.3gp"

    I imported video from my Nexus S to iPhoto 10 fine, but since I upgraded to a new iMac a week or so ago, I cannot import videos into iPhoto. The videos can be copied manually to my iMac hard drive and play fine but can't be imported into iPhoto.

    Any ways to fix this or work around it?

    Did you find a way to do this ?
    Mine used to work when I used a sense based ROM (on an incredible) but AOSP ROM's don;t do it...
