Chapter 9. Cameras and Scanners > Transferring Photos to Your Computer

Transferring Photos to Your Computer

After connecting your camera to your PC, you can use the Scanner and Camera Wizard to download and save pictures in your My Pictures folder or any folder that you choose.

Most cameras come with a cable that plugs into your PC’s USB port. Windows includes and installs drivers for many camera models, sparing you the chore of manual setup. If your camera is too old (pre-2000) to understand XP’s automated download features, your best bet is to buy an external memory card reader that plugs into a USB port. Insert a memory card into the reader, and Windows treats it like a floppy disk (Figure 9.1). Multislot readers can handle Secure Digital (SD), SmartMedia, CompactFlash, MultiMedia, Memory Stick, xD, and other formats.
