I don't know if this has to do with Leopard or not, but I just upgraded (to OS X 10.5), and now when I ingest RAW files from my CF cards, via Image Ingester, I get 2 or 3 weird extra files. A common is "uid." The filenames look like this: "Newberry_080103_uuid." (that's my name and the date, added via II, and I have no idea where the "uuid." comes from. Another one had my name and date, and then "0bb1." I can open these files in a text app, and they are blank. There icons are generic.

Anyone know what this could be? I format my cards before shooting. I just did a test where I formatted the card, took a shot, and put the card in the reader. Without running II, I see the RAW file alone. After running II, I get the added mystery file(s).

Jim--

Unless you tell it otherwise (possible with ImageIngesterPro), II ingests everything it sees. Mount the card as a drive as see if those files are there.

These files are probably not below the DCIM folder on the card. If that's the case, you can easily skip them by starting there rather than from a higher-level folder.

I don't see the mystery files when I mount the card and look in the folders. The files only appear after running II.

Jim--

What are you using to examine the files on the card? Some utilities (Mac Finder, Windows Explorer) may not show all the files.

Mac Finder--which does show the files after they're ingested, but not when I double-click on the CF drive icon.

Jim--

Here are some simple instructions to get a complete list of what's on the card:

Let me know (email or here) what you see.

Thanks for your replies Marc. I couldn't get Terminal to work--I was able to drag my card on it and it's name showed up, but when I typed ls -R for some reason my hard drive got listed instead of the CF card. However, I realized I could use my FTP client (Transmit) to view invisible files. I am seeing a few directories there--I think OS X is putting them on the card. The folders:

.fseventsd this dir. includes: "000000000b64978d" and "fseventsd-uuid"  "uuid" is part of the filename of the mystery files.
.trashes
DCIM (here's the Canon stuff)

Jim,
TinkerTool can let you examine invisible files.
