I think I missed this – unless it’s a new feature to Snow Leopard – I just never noticed this little icon before:
I circled it… that little plug next to the Canon S9000. I NEVER saw that before! I’m sure it’s something that’s been in OS X for years, I just never had a situation where one of my printers was UNPLUGGED! I guess now I know if I see that little icon, someone kicked the plug .
Now I remember, it must have been when I was playing with Tethering my camera to my iMac. I wanted to see if it worked and I must have inadvertently pulled the wrong USB plug out of the hub! Phew, I feel better now.
The tethering DID work. Aperture has this ability built in – Lightroom, on the other hand, wasn’t so easy. After a bit of digging I did find a plug-in and I’ll talk about that a bit more in-depth in another post.
