I've emailed the place where I bought it at and asked, but the service contract period is over, so I don't know if they will answer or not.
And how do these things actually work? Is this correct: take the picures, it saves them on the card, take the card out of the camera, stick it in the card reader, click the desktop icon (or something like that to access it), then does it open up in a window the contents like on a floppy or cd? And can I just move them over to the hard drive of the computer then?
Or is it more complicated than that?
As for managing your files... You can do lots of great things with the little memory cards including transporting regular files. For example... you can sift through all of your digital pictures, pick your favorites and put them on the card. Now take your card to a photo processor and they will print the pictures you have on your card. It's actually pretty nice. You can also move regular old files (like word docs) between machines using the cards. Image management software is usually included when you buy a camera and MOST of the time it's pretty easy to use.
Good luck! Be sure to check out camera reviews online before you buy to make sure you are getting a good deal and a nice camera.
