You neglected to specify the make and model of your camera so I'm going to assume it uses a memory card of some type. If I'm wrong, please reply to this post and specify the make and model of your camera.

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 Picasa.

If you use a separate card reader and download to a folder you create on your desktop, you don't need a cd.

If my computer doesnt have for the cd how do i download pictures to my computer from my camera?

shouldent need a cd. just plug your camera into your computer and wait for the window asking what you want to do with your camera to pop up. Then click on the " open folder to view files". Then usually there will be 1-3 folders in there. just open each one up until you find your pictures. Then you drag the pictures you want from your camera onto your desktop or my documents or any folder you prefer. Hope this helped.

Cut the cd by accident. have an apple, can I download pictures from Hannah MT camera?

Does the camera use a memory card? If so,use a card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop. If not, connect the camera to the computer with the supplied usb cable and double-click the icon that appears. From there, you can download the pictures to a folder you create on your desktop and then on to iphoto.
