Transfering pictures to your Computer
The simplest way is to buy a card reader.
Then it is not necessary to ever connect your camera to the computer. Just plug your memory card into the card reader.
The computer will see the card reader as being a hard disk. You can use Windows Explorer to copy the photo files from the card and store them wherever you want on the computer.
Some cameras use that method also.
I don't know if your camera does or not.
Here is a way to find out:
Connect your camera to the computer as usual.
Do not start up PictureProject software.
Use Windows Explorer and look to see if you have a new hard drive showing.
If you do, it will be your camera files.
Use Windows Explorer to copy the photos to your computer.
A word about card readers:
They are available at WalMart, Staples, and any camera store.
They sell for $20 to $30.
Be sure to get one that can read SD memory cards.
Some card readers can read 6, 7, 8, 9 different cards.
If you have Windows XP, you will not even have to install any special drivers. Windows XP will recognize the card reader and will install the drivers for you.
If you have Windows 98SE, you will need to install drivers that come with the card reader. Some card readers do not have drivers in the package, they direct you to a website to download them.
