Depending on the model of your camcorder, you should have or can get a cable to connect the camcorder to a computer. The procedure will depend on the model of your particular camcorder.
The computer may have to install drivers to recognize the camcorder and then will see it as an additional drive or mass storage unit. This assumes the camcorder isn't an older device with a removable disk of some sort.
You can then upload the data from the camcorder by navigating to the folder from the camcorder.
Some newer camcorders use "SD" cards that can be removed and inserted directly into a computer equipped with an SD slot or equipped with a universal card reader (usually a separate device)
A docking station is an extension or addition of ports for a laptop computer. Once the portable computer is docked, you can access the docking station's ports, such as PS/2 or USB 2.0 ports, through your computer. Some docking stations have monitors that you can connect your computer to, placing your video on an external screen so you can turn off your computer's monitor and conserve some of your computer's energy. All Dell docking stations will have the same general troubleshooting steps.
Plug your laptop's power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If there is no power going to your laptop from the docking station but it works when the power adapter is plugged into the wall, the docking station is bad and needs to be replaced. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power goes on but your computer doesn't recognizes accessories such as a USB mouse--plugged into the docking station, try a different port on the station. If it works in a different port, the previous USB port is burned out. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized, you might have a corrupted docking profile. Undock the computer and dock it again once it has fully started up to reset the docking profile. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If you have an external monitor and it is not working, completely close the lid on the laptop so the image will move to the external monitor. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized and resetting the docking profile fails, update all drivers through Dell's support website and then re-dock the computer. Some of the software that runs the hardware may have become corrupted. Hope this helps
maybe the pictures are corrupt files, if so what will transferring them to your desktop accomplish. If the files are good and you have the appropriate software to view them you should be able to on the laptop.
However if you want to try...
1) put in mem stick , when laptop recognizes it go into my computer
2) click on the icon for mem stick and minimize it
3) open my computer a 2nd time and click on drive pics are on
4) click on the first file / first pic and the while holding down shift key go to end of list of files that are the pics
5) rt click and press cut
6) then go into the other my computer open which should be the mem stick then rt click and hit paste
7) remove mem stick from laptop and place it in desktop
8) when desktop recognizes it , gather up all pic files with the shift key procedure done on laptop
rt click cut/copy
9) then go into c drive or applicable hard drive then rt click paste
Turn off your laptop, take the dvd-rw drive out of the laptop and then reseat it back into the slot so it snaps into place. Turn the laptop back on and make sure its recognized in My computer.
If it is reocognized then try to burn again and see what happens. If it still gives you the same message, see if your drive will read regular dvd movies. If it doesn't then that means the laser is going bad and the drive will need to be replaced.
Browsing over the md120 specs, included should be a software disc for the usb connector, so it shouldn't matter whether you use an adapter or the 4 to 4 cable. This disc will have the drivers and software for using the camera in conjunction with your laptop. Have you tried this download for the camera. http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010449.asp
Also check out this link. Towards the bottom under additional features it lists software, drivers and utilities, and at the bottom under supplied accessories it lists application software/usb driver. Go to the store you purchased this at or contact Cannon support and get the disc that was supposed to be included.
