Vista SHOULD, but Vista does not. If you can get Vista to read the CD that came with the camers - do NOT download the driver.

Canon Rebel XTi not recognized when plugged into usb

Vista is your problem. an inexpensive card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can send the pics to your photo editing software.

I installed S3000 software for Windows XP on my Windows Vista. Now it won't run. I downloaded the driver fix for Vista but something is blocking the program from running - it says: Windows 4.1 has stopped...

Sounds like a compatibility problem related to Vista.
If your pics are stored on a camera card then i recommend that you purchase a card reader/writer and pop the camera card in that to transfer the pics to the computer.
They are very cheap at around $2( £1) and you can get them anywhere from places like PC World, radio shack etc.

Panasonic lumix camera fz20eb unable to upload pics to toshiba laptop with windows vista

You should be upload pictures using a USB cable even if you do not have the additional sofware. Once you plugged in your camera, it may take a few minutes for the computer to register a new device and you should be able to view pictures using the Vista popup or in my computer from the "new device"

Help please

1. plug usb into PC
2. plug usb into camera
3. turn camera on

Windows should report that it is detecting a device. If it doesn't then it may be because the camera's hard drive IS the device it would supposed to be detecting, nes pas?
