Chapter thirteen. Working with Digital C... > Copying Pictures from a Memory Card

Copying Pictures from a Memory Card

If your PC includes a memory card reader, you don't have to bother with connecting your camera to your PC. It's much faster and easier to insert your camera's memory card into your PC's memory card reader than it is to go through the typical cable connections. When you insert a memory card, your PC recognizes the card as if it were another disk on your system. You can then copy files from the memory card to your computer's hard disk.

All you have to do is insert the memory card, open My Computer, and click the drive icon for the memory card. This displays the card's contents, typically in a subfolder labeled DCIM. You can then move, copy, and delete the photos stored on the card, as you would with any other type of file in Windows.
