    Hi,

    I recently purchased a digital camera for ordinary use with my pc. Everything seemed great until it was time to connect the camera to the pc - directions: "connect the USB end to any USB port on your pc" I have a reason to believe I don't have a USB port.

    I know I must clarify that my computer is extremely outdated by today's standards. It has Windows 95 and is about 5 years old.

    My main problem:
    I have a digital camera with no way of transmitting my pictures to my pc for viewing and sharing.

    I did some research. Along with my camera I have a 32 MB memory card. I went to the site prescribed by my digital camera manual and I found this:

    http://www.dcprodirect.com/new/inde...hotosmart+318&searching=&searchfor=&AccId=525

    By chance, would I be able to put the memory card with my pictures on it into this card reader and would it work? It says it is compatible with Windows 95.

    The type of dig. camera I have is an HP Photosmart 318.

    I am extremely grateful for any tips or help anyone has to offer. Thanks a million!

    It doesn't say that the card reader is compatible with Win 95...I'm sorry. But it does say it plugs into the pc's parallel port and I do have one of those.

    Ideas, anyone?

    This is the one that I use by sandisk, works with win95b but your system may not meet the basic requirements. You will have to be the judge.

    i use the hp318 along with the usb version of the card reader - works great
    - the parallel port version naturally is a tad slower but does the job
    - as davey said - you need to look at your system to see if it'll work (course you can always return it)

    good luck

    According to this link about that reader (http://www.microtechint.com/qs-cmate.html), your computer should meet the minimum requirements (unless it's older than a 486). Transferring pictures will be painfully slow, and if you don't have much memory installed in your computer, working with those pictures will be pretty frustrating as well.
