my son is running xp, he has just purchased a new camera with 1Gb memory card but when he tries to put pictures on his computer xp will not accept his memory card. is there any patch for this?

XP should have built-in capability to do this - no patch is required. The camera drivers may need to be installed.

Tell us the make+model of the camera, the type of memory it uses, the make+model of the memory card & how is he trying to access the memory card - via a cable connected to the PC, or with a card reader? If it's the latter, also let us know its make+model. G

I find the easiest way to access a memory card is to use a card reader, either one built in to your computer or a standalone model, they are relatively inexpensive to buy and save a lot of hassle messing around connecting your camera to the PC everytime.

"...but when he tries to put pictures on his computer xp will not accept his memory card."

It may simply be that the card reader will not read cards of that capacity. In which case either connect the camera directly (probably with a USB cable) - or look into getting a new card reader.
