You can usually do this a couple of ways. If you connect the usb cord from the computer to the camera with the cord that came with the camera, the computer will usually recognize the camera as a hard drive, and then the camera will show up as a hard drive in the "my computer" or "computer" folder on the desktop. You can then make up a folder on your desktop, and select all the pictures, right click and hold them, and drag and drop (move, not copy) them to the folder on your desktop. If you copy them, they will remain on the card in the camera, but if you move them they will be erased from the card, and it will be ready to go for another round of picture taking.
Some cameras require the CD to be installed for the computer to recognize the camera. In this case, you can download drivers from the net specifically for your camera to maybe solve this.
The other way you can move the pictures, is to take the memory card out of the camera, and use a card reader connected to the usb port on the computer. This also will allow the card to show up as another driver in the "computer" section of the computer, and you can move the pictures as described above.
When you see the folder in my computer, it will be named "DCIM", and you just open it up, and keep opening until you see the pictures.
If you're still having problems, you can take the camera in to a computer shop or Best Buy, and a tech will usually be more than happy to show or explain the process.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Its is best to have the picture software for the camera already installed on your computer. If you don't have the disc, go to the manufactureres website and download it. Then install it. That being said -

There are two ways to transfer video from a camera to a pc.

You can connect the cord while the pc is turned on and this will prompt for a command to copy and/or transfer all images to the pc. Just follow the prompts and hit "ok" when requested.

The other method is to transfer by memory card if your pc has a slot to directly insert it. Some printers have a slot to insert the memory card too. When a card is inserted, the pc will recognize it and ask what you want to do? Just follow the prompts to save all images to your computer.

Why will my laptop recognize the ZR85 camcorder in the card position and not in the tape position?

Because if you only connect with USB that's normal.
USB tranfers still photos.
For Video you will require a firewire cable connected to camera and computer.

you cannot edit in your cam; you need to transfer to your pc, then use a photo editing or video editing programme and then type in your titles before you burn to a disc.
