    Default a question for computer buffs

    need some advice as my digital camera has stopped being able to transfer pictures to my laptop (dodgy lead i think) so i was wondering would a memory card reader solve this and do they come with a software cd rom as my disc drive is also f00ked, or do you jnust plug them in and transfer pics straight away? my thickness with computers is annoying at times lol and any advice would help

    if you get yourself a usb card reader you should be fine pogo.

    if its just the lead being dodgy tho - is it just a standard usb cable from the camera to pc? could try replacing that also?

    TBH i bought the camera in one of those dodgy electrical shops in lanzarote, and they claim it is a jvc , but jvc dont appear to make digital cameras so im not sure what lead will fit it, might have to go into jessops and ask them if they can find me a matching lead

    If your PC is running XP then it should pick up the card reader without loading any drivers, you'll just get some more drive letters in "my computer" under devices with removable media
