Trouble connecting EOS R6 to an M1 Macbook

Hey everyone. I just got an M1 Macbook Air, and it runs photoshop and lightroom perfectly. The one glaring flaw is that it doesn't recognize my R6 at all when it's connected. I tried two different USB C cables with the same result. It looks like the camera knows it's connected to something because the little green light comes on. And it connects to my Windows desktop with no problem. So it's definitely an issue with the MacBook. Has anyone successfully paired their R camera to their M1 Mac yet? Thanks!

Have you tried running ImageCapture before you plug the camera in?
