At this point ..
You should be able to read the files in the camera and delete the files in the camera ... As if it were just another disc drive.
Are you saying you can't do that ?

If it shows up in "My Computer" .... You can access it there.
Then you can Cut, Copy, Paste and Delete the Images just like any drive.
Drag n Drop should also work well.

Are you running Windows XP ?? ... You shouldn't have to "install" any USB drivers.
What's the Make n Model of the Camera ?
When you plug in the USB Camera ... does it (something) show up in "My Computer" ?

Where does it read that it is a dual mode camera when you plug it in?

If it installed by itself on your mate’s computer then it doesn’t likely have XP drivers available. It is probably already installed on your computer if you plugged it in and turned it on running XP. As Noyb suggests you will find it in My Computer with a drive letter labeled either “Removable drive” or “Camera”, but only when it is connected and maybe only when it is switched on.

If you don’t have XP you will have to find out what kind of camera you have as the driver will be specific to the camera or brand. This is your best bet – make sure the camera is plugged in and turned on when you run it: http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html If your computer says there is a dual mode camera connected Belarc will likely find it.

If that doesn’t work, there is usually a plaque of some sort with model and serial number. Plug whatever information other than the serial number into Google and see if it can’t locate a site where you can find a driver.

Aftyer you plugged it in... Did you turn it on?

If you ignore the windows update and look in My Computer, as has been suggested, do you see a new removeable drive?

Do you have the manual for it?

There are several dual mode camera drivers you can download here: http://www.soft32.com/s/Windows/Driv...-375-12-0.html

It is curious that your friend was able to just plug the camera in and Windows set it up without requiring drivers. Have you updated your Windows with Microsoft? Many devices will not install without SP2.

Unfortunately...

If the generic drivers in XP do not work and you do not know the manufacturer.... It will be nothing more than a Google crapshoot trying every dual mode driver you can find...

Here's a link to get you started... http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...camera+drivers
