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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Actually, you don't need software for an USB cable too. If you have Windows XP, it sees your camera right away and would ask you what to do with that device.

Pull the battery and see if it stops. If it starts again after you put the battery back in, the motor relay is jammed. If the mosquito stops buzzing you are in business...the sequencing was not completing.

There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones:
