You didn't give the make and model of your camera, so I assume it uses a memory card of some type.
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 any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

SOURCE: problems downloading pics
skip the whole process and buy a sd memory card reader-it's plug and play- no software and will save your batterys when you download-they work great and bypass the issues your having-plug into usb port and will download to xp or vista

Well, my solution was to buy a new flashdisk...problem solved.
I bought a USB flashdisk reader and I could save my pictures.
Why did the original flashdisk did not work in the camera? I don't know.
I hope this helps

After you connect your camera to your computer, you have to turn on the camera manually. It will not come on automatically. Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
