Re: unable to get pics from camera to computer?
Tell us more about the everything! You habe connected to USB cable from camera to Computer - Yes? Switched on the Camera and set to 'Upload - Yes? If you have installed the software disk- uninstall it and let the Computer sort it- which it can. Are you using an external card reader- which is preferable to uploading from camera by the way. Just tell me more.

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 Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).
Your memory card may think it's full if you've been deleting pics from it when it's in your PC and not in the camera.
If you've offloaded all the pics you want to from your memory card, put
it back in your camera and "reformat" the card - there should be
instructions how to do this in your camera manual. (If you've misplaced
your manual you can likely find an online version on the website of your
camera manufacturer). Hopefully this will fix your problem.
From now on, (even if you have to buy a new memory card), don't do any
editing or deleting of pics directly on the memory media while it is in
your PC (or Mac). Offload your pics to a file of their own on the PC
(you can edit pics from that file). Then put the memory card back into
the camera, verify that you did indeed successfully offload the pics to
the PC (with the media card out of the PC), then delete the pics from
the card while it's in the camera.
Reformat the memory card periodically (in the camera) after you've
offloaded your pics (reformatting will erase all pics so you've gotta be
sure you captured them elsewhere) to maintain the 'health' & full
functionality of your memory card.
