You need the software that came with your camera. It is on a CD or DVD. If you can't find the software, the only thing I can think of is some free software like from Ulead, Pixir, BeFunkey, Gimp, Photoshop express. Or if your camera does have a memory card, buy a external card reader and use that to transfer the pictures and videos to your computer.

DMC-FX01 does not support sdhc cards
FX-01 was good camera in it's day but it has been out for 12 years and times have changed. That said, you can still get 1GB and 2 GB SD old-style cards on ebay and other sites. By the way, why hunt for a way to shoot on a 4GB+ card anyway? Low resolution (this one is 6mp) digital cameras with high capacity cards is a recipe for disastrous data loss. As long as your original cards for this camera are not corrupt just keep re-using those.
