My installation disk is being identified as a blank disk by my laptop. Is there somewhere I can download an installer for Mac OSX for the 75790?

There's actually not really an OS X installer on the disc, just documentation that is already available via the SmartHome website, and a little stand-alone program that finds the camera and tells you what its IP address is. All of the real configuration is done by navigating to the camera's IP address in your browser.

So, if you can figure out the IP address on your own, you don't really need the disc for anything. For example, there's an iOS app called iNet that scans your network and provides a list of all of the devices on the network by local IP address. My 75790 shows up as a device made by "B-Link Electronic Limited". I'm sure there are other ways to find the IP address (your router may even be able to provide a list of connected devices), that's just the one that I had most immediately at hand.
