Image Browser downloads to wrong folder

I couldn't find a better category for this question than iPhoto. Sorry if there is one.
I just got a Canon powershot A630 camera. it's great. I was using iPhoto to download images and that was fine. But I thought the Image Browser software that came with the camera would offer more functionality. And i guess it does but I'm having a lot of difficulties with it.
I called Canon and spoke with tech support but they just tell me it works for them so it must be my problem. They are using mac 10.4 and I have 10.3.9 so that might be part of it. The Image Browser version is 5.7.
Here's what happens:
I have specified under "Preferences" in the "Camera Window" (that comes up when I connect the camera to the computer) for the images to be downloaded to a folder I created called "Powershot A630" which resides in the Pictures folder. The default location for download is that same Pictures folder. And that's where the images go, NOT to the folder I specified.
I've tried also setting that in the EOS window (which can only be started when the camera is NOT connected to the computer). Still doesn't help.
The Canon guy ran me through a scenario where I "select" pictures for downloading. In this scenario I get a chance to specify the destination, and in fact, it shows the destination I chose in preferences. And it does download to the correct place. But then, where the Image Browser main window lists "favorite" folders, my destination folder is now listed twice. Not desireable I think.
At this point, I think I'll just go back to iPhoto, but if anyone has a solution, or other reasons why I should use Image Browser I'd love to hear.
One more thing. The second Canon guy I talked with took me into "Image capture" utility and had me set the destination folder there. Don't see where that has any bearing on the activity at hand, though.
Thanks a lot,

See my responses (marked "B-") interleaved with your great note...
I love my Canon Powershot A620. The 630 looks
awesome. My Image Browser is version 5.5, and I don't
know what changed with the next versions.
B- Yeah, the a630 is really nice. I previously had an A40 and this is a major step up.
Anyway, the second Canon guy sounds a bit more
knowlegdeable about Macs. The preferences in Image
Capture are where you set which application (or none)
opens automatically when the Mac detects a camera or
card. So if setting it in Image Capture doesn't work,
then I'm not sure what will. I'm afraid I can't
answer your core question here about how to download
to your preferred folder.
B- Thanks for explaining that. It's very clear. I did not understand that from my conversation with the Canon rep.
As for your choice of which app to use, consider
this: Image Browser is just that - an application for
browsing your hard drive and displaying the image
files in various ways. iPhoto is NOT an image
browser. It is a photo organizer with lightweight
editing capabilities and limited version control.
B- That's good to know, too. I was assuming that Imagebrowser was a substitute for iPhoto and I was hoping for increased funcionality. And it does have lots of stuff in it, which was more confusing than anything else.
iPhoto is a database application, so when you use it
you should NOT manipulate items in its library folder
structure from within the Finder.
B- yeah, I had discovered that
With an image
browser you always manipulate the files yourself from
Finder. You alone are responsible for the
organization of your images. With a database you
manipulate your files from inside the application,
and let it take care of the file management
automatically. The two apps are incompatible. If you
import your photos to iPhoto you should not access
them using Image Browser, because you could damage
the library. I know you weren't suggesting combining
the two, I am just trying to highlight the
differences between them.
So ask yourself if you like iPhoto's capabilities. If
you were happy with it before, then there's really no
need to switch to Image Browser. It's like apples and
... cows (oranges are too similar) and the choice is
up to you.
B- the one thing I like so far about imagebrowser is the easy way to view the image full screen. Have not figured out how to do that in iPhoto.
BUT, there is a task inside my Image Browser that I
absolutely LOVE because it does something I can't do
with iMovie. Its called "MovieEdit Task" in
Applications>Image Browser>DVCUtility. It's a great
little thing that lets you take separate video clips
and combine them into one movie. It's much simpler
than iMovie, and optimized to work with your Canon's
video clips. (Whereas iMovie prefers miniDV tape.) It
will allow you to rotate a video clip 90 degrees, so
if you turned the camera on its side to record a
movie clip you can rotate it to portrait view. I have
done this and used the clip in iMovie, and it was
perfect. Without it I would have needed an iMovie
plug-in or had to buy QuickTime Pro.
B- I'll have to look into that. I also have a digital camcorder and have used iMovie. And I'll definitely look into the rotation. My novice friend used my camcorder and shot a bunch of shots of our band with the camcorder rotated 90 degrees.
So, I sometimes use Image Browser due to the way it
handles video clips. Here, it is superior to iPhoto.
But for every day use and for the storage,
organization, and manipulation of my photos, I use
iPhoto (in conjunction with PhotoShop Elements for
real editing).
Just my 4¢.
B- Thanks for the great letter!

I am having some performance issues with displaying reports where it can take upto 30 seconds per user for each new session for the report to display. If we run this directly from the client (through Crystal 2008) it takes about 2 seconds.
The product only has 4 different rpt files but are constantly viewed by the clients (although with diffferent parameters). The users tend to come onto the system browse a couple of reports and log-off. They will do this about 3 - 5 x a day.
1) Can you cache the reports at an application level (rather than the session) (and is it recommended)
2) Create a separate web-service just hosting the Crystal Reports
3) Other mechanisms of calling the report (currently using addDiscreteParameterValue, replaceConnection, Logon [this replaceConnection and Logon is done for the master and every subreport], then using processHttpRequest
Anyone got any advice , recommendations or pearls of wisdom?
Probably have max 15 concurrent users which process these 4 reports.
Kind regards

I've checked couple of topics related to this issue seems many people suffer from this problem, i7 8gb ram with 512gb ssd Macbook air has some issues with its battery life it reduced very quickly. I've applied some techniques -like smc reset,deleting launch daemons and agents- and have an improvement in battery performance. Now the point is, when i do the EtreCheck there are many kernel extensions displayed in the report. Is there any way to delete them and slightly improve the battery life?

It's about insert statement syntax, in insert statement, unlike in update statement column names and corresponding values are separated in two different sets. With this separation debugging/writing of insert statement is going to be time taking activity. To identify what value is getting stored in any column, first column position needs to be identified and after that by counting commas in the values list value is located. If functions are included in insert statement then counting of commas doesn't help to locate the value.
In any non trivial application column count in insert statement is going to be very big number and it is unmanageable.
If column name and value are written next to each other as it is done in cause of UPDATE statement, it is going to drastically reduce the debugging efforts and there by improves the productivity of the developers.
So I request SQL community please consider having a variant of insert statement in similar lines of update statement. This will simplify the life of millions of developers.

I struggled to remove the fuzziness from the picture displayed on my Samsung Syncmaster XL2270HD Monitor from my 2010 MacBook Pro. They are connected using an iWires DVI to HDMI cable. Then I found a contribution from ROLNAS2 from 2 years ago and a variant of the suggested solution works well for me:
On the Samsung monitor control hit MENU and then select:
Input > Edit Name > HDMI and set the detail to HDMI and DVI PC.
Thanks ROLNAS2.

I am currently using a query which has IN (1.2.3....N) clause in where condition.
The table has more than 100000 records in it. I have a set of 20 values which I pass inside this IN clause.
The column which is used for IN clause is indexed.
Can I use anything other than IN clause for this purpose?
What is better way?

I'm looking for (simple) ways to improve the loading times in a Linux LabVIEW executable. We're using a low performance, low cost CPU board, and loading times are terrible. The CPU is capable of doing everything after the application is loaded, but takes forever to get there.
One of the problems is the size of the executable, that grows everytime you just look at it. Are there ways to create smaller executables? It runs from a Compact Flash card, which is ofcourse much slower than hard disk.
Another problem is a dynamic vi, that is started for every TCP connection that connects to the application. It takes a long time to load, and connecting too fast can even effectively hang up the system. Starting a handler task takes about half a second, up to a few seconds for the first task.
We're using the LabVIEW 7.1 runtime, system is a 300 MHz cyrix SBC, running from a Compact Flash.

I have tried hooking my ibook G4 with my TV (32" CRT) as an external display using the video adapter and a composite video cable.
Its really only good for viewing pics and video. Web pages and print are unreadable. Is there any way of improving the quality? Is it because of the lack of digital connection or the non-LCD/plasma TV I am using?

Does anyone else find the interface for Mac OS updates annoying?  Here are the problems I have.
1. When an update is available I get a notification that I must do something about - even when I do not want to pay attention to updates.
2. The notifications gives me two options that I don't want:  install or later.  I don't know what the updates are so I don't know if I want to "install" now or not.
Later just kicks this annoying question into the near future. 
3. In order to make a decision about the updates I need to open the App store and navigate to "updates".  This is a slow operation and always an interruption to my work flow. 
I would like to be able to see what the update is directly from the notification and then make a decision as to when to install it.  I would like an easy way to kick it into the future - a distance of my choosing. 
I just semi-solved my problem by turning off automatic updates.  I don't think this is what Apple wants, but automatic updates are just too intrusive. 
I hope Apple takes this feedback.
