If the icon says "uninstall multicard", doesn't that mean that it is already installed correctly? Have you put a card into it to see if it works?

yes the cards in it and it downloaded the disc that come with it and it says its working ok but i cant find on computer where it is !when i plug it all in up comes that icon but that just says "safely remove hardware " sorry feeling really stupid but i thought it would just come on the screen like when i plug the camera in .

If you are using a multicard reader and XP you won't need to install any drivers.

By going to My Computer>Explore>Local Disk (C) you should see additional drive letters depending on how many types of cards can be read.

Exploring each letter until you find the one containing your card's file will then allow you to drag and drop the pix files to a specific folder.

However, only delete the picture files afterwards from the camera itself, not whilst connected to your system. If you do inadvertently, you will have to reformat the memory card.

Just using the camera there will normally only be one extra drive letter, generally R (Removeable).
