Look for MyComputer Icon on the desk top, or click start and look for MyComputer in the start menu. In Vista or Win 7 it's called just Computer, anyway when you find it double click it when it opens look for DVD ROM and double click that. Tell us what happens then...

RE: Need help downloading

hey goldy I just wanted to tell you that just because they gave you some software with that camera you do not have to install it, that would be one more program on your pc.
Windows can handle the job with out that additional stuff from the camera.

The way I like to transfer my pictures from my camera is to take the Memory card out of the camera and put it into a memory card reader (many computers have them built in) and just move them from that card to the pc. Easy to do.
I use a memory card reader that plugs into the usb port of my pc and cost me $6.

Goldy, another octogenarian here. I also transfer my pictures by removing the card from the camera and putting it into the built-in card reader on my computer (HP). Then it's so easy to transfer any one or all of them to the computer. Be sure to use the "Safely Remove Hardware" thingy before removing the card from the computer. Then just put it back into your camera and continue taking pictures as before. Amazing how many pictures one of these little cards will hold. I have several years' worth of pictures on the card that is in my camera, but I don't snap pictures all day long every day, either!

Goldy,

Yes, most of the accompanying software is redundant to other applications. However, not knowing what photo software you normally use I ask you take a minute to see what is included in the camera software. Some packages offer utilities which may be of interest to you, i.e. photo stitching, panoramas, collages and the such.

Even if you do install the software and find it not to your liking historically they remove rather easily.

DA
