I lost my USB cable to connect to my computer, and while I'm contemplating of buying another cable, is there a way for me to transfer pix from the camera's internal memory onto a removable memory itself, and take that memory card to upload it onto my computer?
It's cumbersome; however, I wouldn't be asking if I had the USB cable....
Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated!

No sorry, you cannot transfer the pictures from internal memory to the memory card. You can buy a USB cable online on that big auction site (they don't pay me, I don't write their name) for about $5 including shipping. Don't pay $35 at a retail store for one whatever you do!
You will need to use a computer, there is no option for direct transfer from internal memory to SD card.
Remove the SD card from inside the camera and connect the camera to the computer using an USB cable. With no SD card the computer will show the pictures stored in camera's internal memory. Copy the pictures in the internal memory in computer hard disk, then eventually move them onto the SD card.
I'm glad to provide the steps to transfer images from Internal Memory of the Camera. When the camera does not have a memory card in it, the images are
saved by default to the camera's internal memory, which holds different
amounts of images based on how many megapixels are built into the
internal memory and what image quality and compression are selected in
the camera's menu. Once a memory\picture card is inserted in the camera,
the camera then saves the photos to the memory\picture card and ignores
the internal memory.
There are two ways to transfer the images from the internal memory.
To transfer photos to a computer from the internal memory using the
USB cable, first remove the memory card from the camera. Then, when the
camera is connected, the computer and software will only see what is in
the internal memory and transfer those photos or videos. During the
transfer process, the computer makes copies of the photos and videos-the
original images remain in the internal memory. After the transfer is
complete and the camera is safely disconnected from the computer, the
contents of the internal memory can be deleted by using the MEMORY
FORMAT function in the SETUP menu in the camera's menus.
The other way to transfer photos from the internal memory is to
transfer them to the memory\picture card using the BACKUP function in
the SETUP menu. If there is no memory\picture card in the camera, the
BACKUP function is grayed-out. During BACKUP, copies of the images are
transferred to the memory\picture card-the original images remain in the
internal memory. After the BACKUP is complete, the internal memory can
be cleared by removing the memory\picture card and formatting the
internal memory using the MEMORY FORMAT function in the SETUP menu in
the camera's menus.
Note: When the camera is connected to a computer using the USB cable with a
memory\picture card in the memory\picture card slot, the computer will
only see the contents of the memory\picture card.
Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any additional help.
1) Remove the memory card if one is installed. Connect the camera to the computer using the USB cable. Transfer pictures normally.
2) Copy the pictures from the internal memory to the card, then take the card out of the camera and plug it into a card reader. Transfer pictures normally. To copy pictures from the internal memory to a card, press the playback button (right-pointing triangle) to enter playback mode, press MENU, then select "Copy".
You can use the USB connection or the card reader, whichever you're more comfortable with, whichever you normally use.
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.
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.
