You might want to consider NOT connecting the camera to the 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

How do i edit footage from dcr-dvd105e on my laptop


If you are running Windows "XP" or "Vista" on your lap top you have Windows Movie Maker on your machine. If you run that program with your camcorder connected via Firewire it should be detected automatically. WMM allows you to edit your video and output to EMail, CD and DVD. Use the WMM "Help" facility to get you started. Good Luck.

I was given a think pad 2647 and I can't get on the internet.


It may not detect it automatically. You will need to configure your dial up modem if you are trying to connect to the internet that way. Go into the network connections and go through the wizard there. It should ask you for the telephone number to dial for internet access so have that handy. If you don't get that box, you went to the wrong area.

The software for the S1030 camera.


Dear FixYa,
Sorted the problem out myself. My cd/dvd player is still duff though!
I just connected up the camera to the my laptop and turned the camera power on. Up came the new hardware detected box and the rest is history. In no time at all the camera was talking to my lap top and I was able to download pictures from the camera to the lap top, very good pictures they are too.
Thank you very much for the prompt reply!
Pete.
