I can't transfer my pics from lumix lx3 to pc. When I first connect camera to pc via usb cable, a new drive pops up and I can initially see my pics. Then things lock up and my pc tells me that it can't read from the drive and my camera won't turn off (unless I remove battery). Is this a common problem? The camera and sandisk sdhc 4gb are brand new. I'd rather not need depend on a card reader. Any help?

USB connection The computer cannot access the Memory Stick® media in the camera when connected with the USB cable. I connect the camera to my computer using the USB, then after 10 seconds its says there is no device connected to the computer, and then it gives me option to cancel, retry, or continue but it usually connects automatically itself again. The only problem is that I can't do anything with pictures can't copy, delete, or view them. I'ce already tried to delete and reinstall the driver.
