Thanks for the replies, I have installed a USB Network cable but I can't seem to make a connection. Do I need to put the software on both computers? I have USB Network Bridge showing in C:Program file on the desktop , but I can't seem to do anything with it.
If you have a card reader/writer and a memory card (the one from your digital camera will do if necessary) you can transfer them this way.
XP and, IIRC, ME and 2000 don't require drivers for the card reader/writer - you should find the card reader's Drive(s) letters from My Computer>Explore and be able to drag and drop the files onto the card.
Reformat the card afterwards in the camera for picture taking purposes.
The principle is basically the same with either a pen drive or a card reader - however the card reader is a little more versatile in that you can also use it to transfer your camera card's shots to your system, saving the camera's batteries being used unnecessarily.
Thank you for the information, I will take a look. It may be worth while getting a card reader as well for myself.The pen drive is for my friend really although I have ordered one as well. He has a laptop that is playing up and wants to format and do a clean install. He has about 200 family photos on there that we are trying to get to his desktop before we can make a start.
