It doesn't matter to the camera what operating system you have on your computer.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 Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

Gently press down on the card as if to push it further into the camera. It will then pop up slightly so you can grasp it between your fingertips and pull it out.

The 3915 is designed primarily as a still camera, with some video capabilities grafted on. As such it captures images not sounds. You can add a soundtrack using video editing software on a computer, but you cannot record one on this camera.

You can use alkalines or lithiums. Lithiums cost more but will last longer. In either case I STRONGLY suggest having a spare set handy.

Take the camera out of macro mode. There's a slide switch on the end of the camera, near the USB socket. Slide it from the flower to the mountain.
