Hi all.

Cheapest and easiest way to get this working with your computer is to buy a SD drive ( only a couple of $$$ ). All you will need to do is take out the SD card from the camera, put it in the SD drive and then download your pictures from the SD.

Easy as!

I got it figured out kind of by accident. I decided to by a SD card, figuring that may work. when I plugged it in, a box came up say that it was working properly, but I still didn't get the pictures. I clicked something else in that box (I think it was advanced setting and they asked me if I would like to reconfigure the ports, so of course I said "yes". What do you know it made the SD card work and my camera worked also. I just had to follow a few easy directions that came up. That's it, Thanks, Gary

After I was done taking the pictures I took the card out of the camera and put it into my SD slot on my laptop, now they are not there. There aren't there when I put it back into the camera either.
