If you can see the camera snd the "drive" it shows as, and the pictures on it - I can't see any reason why using Explorer you shouldn't be able to drag and drop them onto your hard drive.

There's nothing odd about such a procedure, or different just because it's from a camera.

PS - you won't be able to Cut and Paste directly from the camera (as Cut involves a delete in the camera) - but Copy and Paste should work OK.

Probably a silly question, but have you put the gateway software onto the PC?

Dave some old motherboards won't handle usb properly whatever add-on cards or software tweaks you try. The main culprit here is the VIA MVP3 chipset. I recently rebuilt a friend's computer with a Syntax SV266A motherboard and 1.3G Duron (about £50 total cost) for just this reason.
