      It sounds like you have some Kineme plugins installed. Apple renamed the stock Image Downloader to Image Importer on SL and Lion…
      Hope that helps!

    Thank you very much. I wrote the patch with notes of what you said, and published the directory scanner, so it could be downloaded ready, do you want to put it to download?
