I can't get my pictures to transfer from the camera to the PC. After I connect my camera to the computer I get the red access signal for a few seconds, and it says there are no pictures to acquire. I know there are pictures on the card, because I can view them on the camera.
Windows: Try going to MY COMPUTER, and see if the camera is listed there. If it is, then double-click it, and open the sub-folder containing pictures. Then drag and drop them to another folder. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Linux: The camera should appear on the desktop as: ***media. Double-click it, now the sub-folders containing pictures should open.

The best way to transfer 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). 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 management program such as Picasa. Organize edit and share your photos
Use the connecting cord provided along and connect. The hardware -camera- will be detected on your PC, install and open to see the files/photos and copy or transfer.
