Yes; by inserting a digital card into the appropriate slot on the card reader, it will show as a disc in my computer and you can copy your items to it like any other disc.

How to download pictures from my digital camera to my computer with Targus universal memory card reader/writer TGR-CRD25?

Connect the card reader to your computer. Take the memory card out of the camera and put it into the card reader. The card should now appear to your computer as another removable hard disk. 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.

Using a memory card reader/writer saves time!

Here is a tip which has indeed saved me time and effort.

Use a card reader for your copying of files to your hard drive on your computer. These little wonders are really a great help.

One thing which I found early in my repairing of digital camera is that there was no way that I could put many camera drivers and software on my computer's hard drive.
If you do not have a memory card reader/writer, simply go to most any electronics store and buy one. The prices vary and some may be cheaper on a site like Ebay, just remember that you will usually pay more for a better grade. I suggest that you do not buy the very cheapest one, they are not made to last very long, in my experience.
The installation is very simple. Simply plug in the card reader in any USB port on the computer, not in a port expander. No software or drivers are needed in most all of the new operating systems including IBM/MS Windows, and the various Linux OS's.
Some of the software such as "Nikon View" (Windows) will work with any kind of digital camera picture files, especially .jpg. I have used this free software on my computer for every kind of digital camera I have repaired or have used.
The only ones which may not be supported would be those which are the very early digital cameras with picture files which are not supported.

I have a new samsung laptop with windows 7. How do I download photos taken on my digital camera. used finepix on my old laptop. Tried and got them onto media player but want them in my photographs...

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 the software supplied with the camera, or any other program you might download from the net.

some readers have multi-sized slots. If there is no configuration that fits properly you have the wrong reader for your card. Take your card with you to the store and get a usb reader that will read your card.

How to transfer pictures, computer to ultra card reader/writer

Open up Windows Explorer. Not Internet Explorer. So you can see all your drives and subdrives.

Find your pictures. Let's say you had them on C:\My Pictures. Go there and copy them all. Then find out which drive your card reader/Writer is showing up as. Usually like G.

Once you've copied the pictures, switch to that drive and paste them. Remove the card reader and they should be on there.

Camera trouble

Highly recommend skipping the cable route from the camera, and instead consider using a USB card reader to download your photos. Card readers are very reliable in downloading files, and are much quicker too. Simply insert the camera card into the reader, and then the reader into the USB port. The card essentially becomes a hard drive that you can copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. Card readers are very inexpensive too. here's an example from Amazon:

Highly recommend that you consider using a card reader to download you pictures. You insert the camera's memory card into the reader, and then insert the reader into a USB port on your computer. The card then shows up as a hard drive so that you can simply copy/paste or drag your picture files onto your computer. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors).

I am the owner of a Pentax Optio and have just purchased a computer with Vista package. I can't transfer my 'photos onto the computer. Can you help?

The Best thing you could do is buy an SD Card reader, the SD card plugs into the card and the card (via USB) plugs directly into the computer.

The photos then come up as a USB drive.

Here is a link on Ebay to an SD Card reader

Pics appear on camera screen but not on card

If you can review the photos on the card while it is still in the camera (and by review, I mean go back and forth between multiple photos on the card), then there are two possibilities: 1. The photos really are on the card, and your computer can't read the card. 2. The photos really AREN'T on the card, and are perhaps in internal memory on the camera instead. Some thoughts for things to try: 1. Put the card in the camera, take a few photos, make sure you can review them all on the camera. Take the card out. NOW try reviewing photos on the camera with NO card in. What happens? 2. Try putting the card in your card reader in your computer. Copy a file (any file, a word document, anything) from your hard drive onto the card. Is it there? Can you copy the file back off the card to somewhere else? It sounds like the camera is fine, and the problem is with the card or the media reader.
