OK, I hate the mini SD cards. I have a difficult time grabbing the card from the camera, so I thought I'd use the USB cord, and transfer to the computer with that. I followed the directions, saying to connect the cord to the camera and computer, then turn the camera on. My Macbook Pro (10.9.4) doesn't see the camera. Have any of you tried this with a Mac? If so, is there some setting I'm missing?

Disregard. I used google, and found that I had to launch a photo editing program on my computer to download from the camera. In Bridge, I simply hit "download from camera" and it did it. I expected to see the camera appear on my desktop like it does when I use a card reader, and did not realize I had to use camera editing software to get the photos.
