How are you trying to read the card? With a card reader or inserted into your Nikon?

I bet if you disconnect the Nikon from the Mac and still have the Canon camera in there that the Nikon can't read the files either - try that out. That's why the Mac can't see the card.

So don't use a camera to transfer your files - it's slow and from what I understand it doesn't transfer all the related files (like the .thm files) if you do it that. Card readers are cheap and a much better solution.

It's not surprising to me that a Nikon can't read a card formatted in a Canon camera but with a card reader it's easy breezy! :-)
