    Hi,

    I'm trying to find out how to transfer photos from a digital camera to the
    computer.
    I've got active IrDA "dongle" (?), but can get only one photo transferred so
    far. All further efforts just give a big "!" on the screen.

    I also get a message that another computer is nearby and an icon which shows
    a wireless laptop, but I don't know what it's about.

    Camera's user manual doesn't even mention how to get photos to computer.
    Their site has download software but descriptions are all in French, too
    many to translate one by one. No response to e-mail questions yet.

    Please help, running out of storage.
