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.
One thing to consider when dragging photos to a memory card for viewing on digital camera, is which folder you are putting them in.
On my sony cyber shot, when I hook it up to remove pictures, I open the memory drive in MY COMPUTER, and are faced with two folders. I ended up having to click into each one to find where the actual photos were, and there were multiple folders within the original folders.
I guess it is just the way the camera organizes the memory card. Anyway, if your experience is similar to mine, and you haven't already done so, I would click down to the exact same folder in the memory card where you find pictures you take with the camera. Drag your computer photos there, and see if they appear.
I had thesame problem when I bought my s1065, until I opened the battery compartment & found I had no memory card in, I went to Argus & bought one for £19 50p & now I can take as many photos as I like.
I had this same problem because I didn't have drivers for the camera, so I put the memory card in an older camera to upload photos to the computer, and it worked perfect! Just connect camera (or SD card reader) to your USB, click on the My Computer icon and you should see an extra drive shows up, if not refresh the page and it should be there, click on it and select open or explore, move the folder to your desktop, if you want to save pics. To edit photos cut and paste or drag to whatever program you normally use. May seem tricky but really it's simple. Hope this helps! c-ya, Lisa
