Press the Windows Key Plus E should bring up Explorer look at the bottom of tree for Removable drive or Camera Icon click on + until you see the Photo files right click and drag file to your folder then double click on a file to open it

I echo Belatucadrus
Also have you looked in' My computer' and spotted the new drive icon the should have come up on connecting the camera?[possibly drive 'E' if you have only C&D or another letter if other drives exist]
If so open it and the folder it contains and then the folder you wish your images to be saved to

Now go back the the camera folder
right click
click on copy
go to the saved to window right click and click on paste.
Job done.
You could also instead of clicking on copy click on cut then paste this will empty the camera memory ready for the next batch of images

If I use memory card in external mode and open Easyshare there is no problem.
