Question about Cameras
Yes, in this answer I'm going to assume a few things first that you have a mini USB cable to go from the camera to the PC. Also that you have Windows XP home edition or newer. Makes sure the camera has sufficient battery power. you then would shut the camera off, connect the cable first to a USB port on the computer, then to the camera. Create a folder in your computer "My Documents" I generally use day date year as a file name. Then turn the camera on XP (or newer) will see this asn an external device or hard drive. Depending on how you have your PC configured an icon my show up on your desk top or you may have to go look for it in system preferences. Once you find this icon you can open it and see the files select all (different methods) copy and then past them into the new file folder you just created. Then open that file and you should see your pictures as thumbnails. Click on some random files and a viewer should appear. Once you are sure the files are on your computer hard drive you can "eject or safely remove device" but the in short you need to shut off the device. Then turn off the camera, remove the USB cable, turn the camera back on and go through the memory card formatting sequence to clean and format the memory card for a clean medium to again put more pictures on. Always format the memory card in the camera before using it.
Now all that said if you don't have the USB cable a Memory card reader can be bought fairly expensively, the memory card is then removed from the camera and placed in this memory card which is hood up to the computer USB port completely stepping around the camera. These card readers are a lot easier to use operates like an external hard drive and the camera/computer operating systems don't have to be compatible BUT you still need to eject or stop the card before removing the card from the reader and you still need to reformat the memory card in the camera. Cheers hope this helps happy New Year
