To make it simple:

1. Use a compatible USB cord to connect the camera to your computer.

2. If this is your first time to connect the device : it will automatically search and obtain compatible drivers from the camera, so this would take a little longer than usual.

3. After the device drivers are installed, or the connection process is finished.

You can now view your photos/videos/files from your camera by opening it on your computer's explorer (Windows + E, if you're on PC)

4. Usually on windows, you can see the camera's name on the explorer together with C:, D:, E:, CD-ROM, etc.

Open it by right-click > Explore/Open or double-click.

5. After opening the camera's root folder, you will see sub-folders. now, it depends on what camera are you using, some cameras uses 2 drives that contains fixed and storage. for this instance, choose 'storage' and browse through the sub-folders on this drive for where the images are stored.

Tip : when browsing, use thumbnails as your view. (right-click > view > thumbnails)

Connect the camera to a computer with a USB cable or take the memory card out of the camera and load it into a car reader of a computer.

All digital cameras and video cameras come with a cord; this cord, when plugged in to the camera on one side and to the computer on the other side, enables you to upload the pictures from camera to computer. (If this seems confusing or you want more information, look at you camera owners' manual.)
