Hi there

The A530 is equiped with a socket that allows you to connect to a USB connection on your computer. You will need the lead that came with your camera. Look for any spare USB socket on your computer. It looks like a small plain rectangular shape, mostly with a flat white strip inside it that will match the plug on your camera's lead. Make sure your camera is switched off, then connect your lead. Switch the camera on when it is connected and your computer should atutomatically detect it. It should say "Found new hardware." If you get to this stage, you're on the right track.

Next, launch the program you installed from the software cdrom that came with your camera. This should guide you through the next stage and allow you to send your photos to your computer.

If they are important, be sure to back them up so that if your computer breaks down or is stolen, you still have your photos.

I can no longer upload photos onto facebookfrom my pictures

First of all, if you can supply more info on what exactly happens I can help better.

I would start with installing Java from here-
This is because the photos application in Facebook uses Java to upload photos.
