I tried to download software, but so far have not been able to successfully transfer pictures from camera to computer. I am traveling overseas and this is very frustrating. I am sure there is a simple solution. I have a Compaq laptop which does not have a memory card slot, but i do have the proper USB cords. Please help!

Re: Need help downloading pictures to laptop.
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, as in your case, 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.
a 6ya Expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Most brands of cameras deliver a CD with the camera, containing software, needed to backup, transfer and work with the pictures shot, on a computer.
Most of the time there is software is for both, Windows and MAC.
Before you connect the camera with any computer, you should install the software. The disk also has the drivers for the old operating systems.
If you lost the CD, or just don't know where it is right now, you can go to the site of your camera brand and try to download the software you need. For that look under support.
If your camera is old, and the brand does not exist anymore, try a freeware picture transfer / editing software pack. Like Gimp or Adobe Photoshop elements.

Try doing this direct transfer in your computer
1. Connect the camera to your computer using the supplied USB cable of your camera.
2. Set the mode dial to (playback) and turn on the power. The camera and computer will be able to communicate.
3. If there is no pop up window that has Canon CameraWindow, Click the [Start] menu and select [all Programs] or [Programs]. followed by [Canon Utilities], [Camera Window], [PowerShot-IXY-IXUS-DV 6] and [CameraWindow]
4. Download the images. * Download the images using the camera or the computer. * By default, the downloaded images are saved into the [My Pictures] folder.
** If the above process does not work you can just use the memory card of your camera and connect that on your laptop. (some laptop has built in card reader) The memory card works like a flash drive and you can just transfer files like transferring from one folder to another.** Issue on the operating system compatibility.

Close the Kodak EasyShare software from your system tray (down by the clock).
Go to www.apple.com and download apple quicktime.
After you have installed quicktime successfully, add the videos to the software.
Since the pictures were downloaded successfully, videos are also transferred.
They are usually saved in your My Documents\My Pictures\Kodak Pictures.
Are you connecting to the camera with a USB cable? Many camcorders will not allow you to transfer video over the USB interface. Video transfer often requires a Firewire connection and software. You'll need a Firewire cable (sometimes called a DV cable).
If you computer is reasonably new it most likely will have a Firewire port. If not, you'll need to install a Firewire PCI card.
The software I use is called Scenalyzer. There are other options, but Scenalyzer has a free demo you can try. You can download the software here:
