From what? A cell phone? A camera?
The reason I ask is that there are several answers.
Let's go through a general synopsis of how this is accomplished.
1: Cell Phone file transfer
This can be tricky, because your phone company might have this set up so you have to pay a fee to get your pictures off.
Assuming this isn't the case, the next question is whether your phone has bluetooth or not.
Only about 60% of the cell phones in america do, so this is basically a coin toss.
You can find out either by checking the owner's manual that came with your phone or by thumbing though the menu's that are available.
The bluetooth access is usually found on the tools or setup menu areas.
If you have bluetooth then usually you can download your pictures using a blue tooth dongle.
It will look like this:
i want to download my - dennygoot_0.jpg You can get one at most electronics stores, Walmart caries them, Best Buy, or your local computer retailer should carry this. (You can usually get these a little cheaper if you buy them online.)
If you have a new computer or a new laptop you may already have a bluetooth system installed directly into the machine, in which case you will not need this device. Check with your manufacturer to find out.
2: Cell Phone and Camera details (if you don't have bluetooth system in the device.)
If you cell phone or camera does not have a bluetooth system in it, then you will need a usb cable designed for your phone or camera, a driver for the phone and camera, and software (sometimes) to gain access to the files.
The easiest way to do this if this is the route your stuck with is to buy a kit, which will come with everything you need, but that can be a little pricey depending on the model.
If you don't want to buy the kit...
If your usb port looks like this:
dennygoot_1.jpg

Then you need to buy the corresponding cable.
If ti doesn't look like one of these then you might want to take it to RadioShack. They have a large selection, and a system for hunting down the right cable.
Once you have the right cable, then you will need the driver for your cell phone (or camera). If it was provided for you (via a cd) then you are set. Otherwise getting the driver can be difficult.
The best thing to do in this situation is to 'google' the make and model of cell phone or camera. (I.E. Motorola Razor V3, or Canon Pixma i960)
Once you have the driver installed, then you will need software if windows doesn't prompt you with an action for the camera or offer an explorer windows for it in Computer or My Computer, found in the start menu.
There are several free programs available that can do the work for you, if you where not able to get software from the manufacturer.
This is a small list of available programs:
BitPim: http://www.bitpim.org/
P2K Commander: http://handheld.softpedia.com/get/Developer-Tools/File-Manager/P2kCommander-38120.shtml
I hope this helps, but as i stated in the beginning, without more information my answer is going to be rather vague.

I have lost my cd to download pictures to my computer how do i get them downloaded on my computer


You don't need any drivers.


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 such as Picasa.

Sony DSC H-7 resetting picture counter when downloading


That's what the camera is supposed to do. If it always started back at 1, you wouldn't be able to download new pictures because your computer would keep telling you that those pictures already exist.
