Answers :

Hi,
There is another effective alternate is to take out memory card from camera and plug it in memory card reader that will be connected with computer in USB port, go to My Computer and look for newly added icon that is memory card storage, click it and copy picture folder somewhere in computer.
Memory Card Readers are widely available in Stores under $15, $20, click Amazon.com to view few memory card reader to have better idea.
No camera software or any other driver is required for memory card reader setup as Windows has inbuilt drivers to recognize it to work properly.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.
