Re: trying to download pictures onto computer
no, nothing special
your p.c. should read your camera as seperate hard drive and therefor if you open my computer there should be a extra hard drive icon
just click on it and find the folder with your pikkys in it and copy and paste them wherever you want.

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 or FireWire). 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 cataloging program, such as the free Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).
try uploading your pictures using your friend's similar datacable.. if you are able to do it then the problem lies with your cable.replace it. if the computer still doesnt recognize your camera try using a memory card reader and you can easily upload your pictures through it.. hope your problem is tackled. thanks for using fixya!. please dont forget to rate my solution.
Highly recommend that you consider using a card reader to download you pictures. You insert the camera's memory card into the reader, and then insert the reader into a USB port on your computer. The card then shows up as a hard drive so that you can simply copy/paste or drag your picture files onto your computer. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples from Amazon:
Wat are you plugging the camera into?
Is it the computer direct or a Hub?
Remove all USB devises and plug the camera direct to the PC
Make sure the camera is switched on and is set to the 'upload' position.
