Re: picture folder won't open
If the DCIM folder is where the camera keeps its images, then you have no images on the card.
Otherwise, have a browse through the memory card for another folder. The folders are named differently depending on your camera. My Pentax keeps them in "DCIM", but Kodak (for example) might keep them in a different folder.

Connect you camera to the computer using the USB cable. It will be shown as a removable drive(If the autorun is enabled windows should list the option to transfer pictures.Choose this option if it does so). Open the drive and and transfer the pictures to your computer.
The DCIM file is the folder is the folder which images or pictures taken are saved. Inside the DCIM folder should be should be one or more folders. The picture files are stored in one of these two folders.
Look for the filenames that end in .jpg or something like DSC0001.JPG or DSC0002.JPG.
When you plugged in your camera to your computer's usb device, right click on your Start button, and choose Explore. The windows explorer window will open. Click on the (-) beside My Computer and the (-) beside Local Drive C: to minimize the list of folders. Now, you should be looking at the drive letter that defines your Camera. It could be drive E or F. Click on that drive and it will show your the contents on your right panel. Look for those folders and copy them to your local drive.

You need to double click "My Computer" then click on the removeable drive icon. You should then see a folder "DCIM" Double click on that, and you should either see your pictures or folders. If folders, double click on them until you see pictures. Once you see pics click the "ctrl" key and the "a" key this should highlight all the files. Next push the "ctrl key and the "c" key together. This copies the files. Now open a folder on your c drive or in your "My Documents" folder My Pictures. Once you have a folder to copy them to, either right click your mouse in the files area, or ctrl and the "v" key. This will paste all the copied files.
