Answers :

Generally you need to turn the camera on and conncet it to the pc or laptop, than wait for a sound that there is a connection , some camera need drivers wich are usually on a cd-rom , others just are instant working with windows xp (par example)
\015\012
\015\012in case you do not have the driver or the operating system is to new (like vista) you can buy a multifuntional cartreader , withtaht you can read almost ervery card, the cheap ones go for 7$ the more expensive up to 25-40 $ .
Use Windows Explorer - START > right click > Select explore.

Once\015\012you have connected your camera to the PC, and after it has been\015\012detected, open Windows Explorer as explained above. Now scroll down on\015\012the left panel until you see the entry for your camera. Click the (+)\015\012next to the entry to expand. Scroll down to the appropriate folder and\015\012copy all the pics you want to transfer. (right click, copy. For\015\012multiple selections, hold down the CTRL key and click on the pics you\015\012want one by one)
Now select the folder where you want to copy the pics to, and right click -paste them there.

Of course, will have to have installed the camera driver first in your PC, or sometimes the camera may not be recognized.
