The easiest way to transfer the images is to remove the memory card and put that into your computer (assuming you have the appropriate reader built in). Otherwise you should be able to copy the pictures by plugging the camera into your computer by USB.
Most models will be recognized like an external storage device and you should be able to transfer from that. Very rarely some cameras need to be set into a PC / transfer mode in the settings before transferring by USB.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks!
Had same problem...although manual states you can transfer via USB, it doesn't work and won't no matter how many drivers you find. What does work is a Firewire cables. You have three options but I only have tried and proven one. Options:
1. 4-Pin to 4-Pin Firewire transfer cable. The camera has a Firewire port directly below the AC Power adaptor port. This worked fine pulling the video to my PC using Windows Media Transfer. No drivers necessary...at least for Vista. As soon as I plugged in the camera, a window opened asking what actions I wanted to take. Only my HP Laptop equipped with 4-Pin Firewire.
2. 4-Pin (Camera) to 6-Pin Firewire (PC). My Laptop or Desktop not equipped.
3. 4-Pin Firewire (Camera) to USB (PC). Might work but since I couldn't pull data through Camera USB, didn't want to invest in this cable configuration.
Solution in future is buy a bunch of SD Media cards (Not SD-HC) and stop using tape. Transfer direct to PC from SD Card.
I don't know in which country you live (this is helpful to know!), but in most stores offering cameras and many offering electronic items, you should be able to procure a kit of adaptors that will include a cable to use with them.
In the US at least, Wal-Mart, Best buy, Circuit City and Radio Shack are likely sources.
Elsewhere (?) you are on your own.
you can buy a memory card that suites your camera ( xD, sD, MMC) you should see your camera manual to find what type of those memory cards works with it, then transfer the images to the card. after that, you can buy a memory card reader for cheep from best buy or whatever store and transfer images to PC easily.
The camera has two interfaces, the firewire or ieee-1394 for transferring video to the computer and serial interface (RS232) to transfer picture from the memory card to the computer.
If you do not want to use either interfaces, you can buy cheap memory card reader (less than $10) to transfer the image from the MMC card to the PC via USB.
If you want to transfer the video to PC and does not want to use the fire wile link, then you have to buy a video capture device (cheapest is less than $30)and connect to the video-audio output.
I would recommend to use the firewire if you are intending to transfer the video.
