hi ivabig1
you should not need any special hardware,
however what is important is having the
correct 'driver' so that the photos can
be up-loaded.
Also sometimes using a 'usb hub' can be
a problem.

like vinnie said No hardware needed, the software proggie that came with camera should work it ok, try reloading it exactly how instructions say.

ivabig1 probably a silly question, but have you made sure your gateway software is running?

The best way to load photos into your PC is with a card reader.
