Answers :

The camera probably has a removable memory card. often it is located in the same place as the batteries. Remove the memory card and use an external card reader. (they can be obtained from any camera store or from Walmart. The reader should have a slot that fits your card. Plug the card into the reader and then the USB cable from the reader into the USB port on your computer.

\015\012After a few seconds, the computer should recognize the card and open up a screen that asks you what you want to do. The best solution is to choose open and show files. Explorer will open and you can copy the files to your computer. After you have successfully copied the files to your computer and verified that they are there, you can reinsert the card into the camera and using the camera's menu, format the card.

\015\012Many digital cameras prefer to format the card in the camera rather than you delete them from your computer.
\015\012
\015\012If the computer does not recognize the card, tjhe computer my be trying to assign a drive letter to the input that has been already taken. that can be corrected by going to control panel, administrative tools, computer management, disk management. You should see your card there and you can assign a drive letter to it.

\015\012If you do not see it there, the card may be corrupted or bad. To get your pictures, go to the internet and look for software that will help you.
