Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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 cataloging program.

X 42 - can I retreive delete pics ?


Yes, you can still retrieve deleted pictures by using a software. But first you will need a card reader, Insert the memory card in the card reader and connect the usb of the card reader in your computer's usb port. But before inserting on your computer's usb port download a software for recovering deleted pictures. You can try downloading these software:
1. Pandora Recovery
2. SoftPerfect File Recovery
3. PC Inspector Smart Recovery
You just have to choose on what software you are going to use.

How do I download my camera's memory card onto my acer extensa


The "odd shaped port" you are referring to is most likely:

The Express Card slot (replacing the slot known as “PC-Card” replacing the slot formerly known as “PCMCIA”) are the biggest standard slot on a laptop designed to handle stuff like wireless cellular modems with antenna and micro hard drives. Most people won’t ever use this slot, but it’s a lot faster than it’s old relatives now that it connects directly to PCI-Express. From: www.geek.com

Do NOT put your memory card from your computer into that slot. Since you have indicated that the USB cable connector option will not work, you will have to go out and buy a memory card reader that is compatible with you memory card. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to find at most electronics stores. Plug in the card reader (USB) and seat in your memory card and the OS of your laptop should detect the card and allow you to download the pictures.

Hope this helps!
