although if you're running windows 7, you should be able to goto the Computer icon, and it should display removable device drive (which should be your camera) And you should be able to copy the pictures from there to the hard drive
If your computer has a memory card reader, the easiest thing to do is take the memory card out of the camera and copy the files directly from the card. If your computer does not have a card reader, you might consider buying an external card reader that plugs in to one of the USB connections.
If you were given the USB cable that originally came with the camera, you can plug the camera in to the computer that way and copy the pictures from the camera.
Here is the address of Samsung's download page for this camera where you can get the manual and software if you want them.
I can't imagine why in the world you would want to pay an inflated price for another proprietary USB cable.
I haven't plugged a camera directly into my computer for years. The last time I did, it was balanced precariously while downloading pictures and got knocked off the table. The USB cable stopped its fall, but the jack in the body of the camera was twisted in the process and completely ruined.
A much better option would be to head to your local Comp USA, Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc. and purchase a 9 in 1 card reader. It's a small block of plastic with several slots that will accept a wide variety of memory card formats that have been created over the years.
With this single USB device you can read/transfer data from many different devices that you may own. The reader can stay attached to your computer all the time. You simply take the media card out of your camera and plug it into the reader whenever you want to download your pictures.
As an added benefit, you can now make use of that pathetic 128 meg card that came with your camera. Write all your internet accounts, passwords, and other important info to it. Then hide it in a safe place (deposit box) in case of disaster.
