Install the software that came with your camera on your PC.
Connect the USB cable to your camera and plug that into a USA connector on your PC. Use the software to transfer the pictures to your PC or view them. If you have a Windows PC and the camera shows up under My Computer, you can also access the pictures by looking at it as a storage device and opening the picture files.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

How are you trying it now? If you're getting an error message, what does it say?
