    I am running Windows XP in a Compaq Presario, with CD reader and CD/DVD burner.
    My question: How do I get a DVD(with photos and sound) onto a Flash Memory stick or an SD card??

    Simplest method:

    Insert the Disc with photos and sound (close any autorun)
    Go to My Computer
    Right Click on the CD/DVD drive (with your photos and sound in) and select open
    Click on Edit (in Toolbar) then Select all
    Click on Edit (in Toolbar again) and select copy

    Close the folder

    Insert your Flash Memory stick and select Open folder to view the files
    Click on Edit (in Toolbar again) and select paste

    All done Copy and paste (some say I'm good at this !)

    Copy and paste can be problematic with large files . . but with the flash drive attached, on ghe DVD you can select all . . Right click and click Send To . . select the flash drive and it will copy to the drive
