Well it definitely depends on what type of camera you have. Hopefully a digital camera.
Next you need to figure out if there is a cord that came with your camera that will allow you to connect to the PC. Most newer digital cameras come with a USB cable (a larger flat rectangular end that goes into the USB port on the computer, and a small flat almost rectuanglar end that goes into the camera). Some cameras come with a firewire cord so therefore you have to have a firewire port on your computer.
Finally, there may have been a CD that came with your camera that had the software on it so the camera and the PC can talk to each other. However, you might try just hooking the camera up to the PC, turning on the camera and seeing if it finds it.

Once it is hooked up, you should be able to open the My computer icon and your camera should be listed there. Double click on the camera icon and you should see folders that store your pictures. Double click the folders until you find your pictures. Now you can either click and drag them to your computer, copy and paste them to your computer...

Hopefully this will help some. Tell me a bit more about your camera and what came with it and I might be able to help a little more.

    It sounds like it does need a driver. Put your CD in and open it and try to find the driver folder and install it.

    If you can't find or don't have your CD, try Googling your camera model or go to your camera's maker website and you should be able to download the driver from there.

I want to copy pictures from my PC back to my camera but it won't let me do it. How can I do this?

No it is not possible to transfer pictures from PC to your CANON as the image quality changes. Yes you can transfer pictures from CANON to your PC (because it will auto adjust the image quality by windows). The best solution is to remove the SD card from the camera and put it on your PC. If the camera had a built in memory card...use the software that comes when you by the camera. Install it then transfer between PC-CANON and CANON-PC is possible.

Cannot transfer tape contents to PC

To transfer video from your camera you will need a firewire cable and a firewire port on your PC. If you don't have such a port you can buy a PCI firewire port.
After you connected your camera with firewire cable you can then use windows movie maker to transfer your video.

Question after I download my pictures to my pc. can I redownload the pictures back to the canon power shot a520?

As a part of the download process, most cameras and transfer applications ask you if you want to delete the images off of your camera once they've successfully transferred to your PC. Check the preference setting of the application you're using to transfer the images to your PC. Best way to check is to transfer images to your PC, disconnect the transfer cable and see if the images are still on your camera.

Olympus camera fe 240

You can transfer the photos directly from the camera to the PC using the USB cable that came with the camera. You don't need to transfer the pics to memory card first.

Connect the cable to the camera and the PC. Turn on the camera and your PC will recognise it as an external storage device. Use the PC's software to transfer the photos from camera to PC.

Once you have the pics on the PC you can use the Olympus Master software included with the camera to edit and archive the photos on the PC.
