I then upload my pics to photobucket.com so I can show them on this site.
My computer has the card slots so I don't use my usb cable.
And if you don't have card slots on your computer, card readers are dirt cheap -- $20 I paid for the CF reader for my first digital, $20 for the SD reader for my current one. Had I known when I bought the first one that I'd need a different format later, I would have bought the one that reads five or six formats for $30. Plug it into a USB slot, and you have a removable drive. Just move the files around like you move files from one folder or drive to another.
I haven't used the camera software for unloading from the camera for eons, though I do for its editing and printing functions.
