Is there an option on the camera you need to choose to tell it to connect via USB? I know that's the case when I'm transferring pictures from my wife's phone.

If all else fails, go get a 99p USB card reader from your local 99p store and put the memory card from the camera in that. Not elegant, but cheap - and very, very straightforward.

When you connect the camera it will normally appear as a drive/folder under the Computer/My computer icon.

can the photos be tranfered from the reader to the PC

The same applies it should show up as a drive/folder if it doesn't appear directly on the desktop.

As above in Last Post, but when you connect the Camera, check the Camera LCD screen as it may ask how you want to use the camera i.e; As a Web cam or for Data etc

As BT has said: just plug the USB card reader into an available USB port (having first put the memory card into the reader). It should open a dialog box on your desk top, asking you what you wnat to do with the files. If it doesn't, or alternatively, it will show up as a disk drive in My Computer/Windows Explorer. You can then treat the files like any other files: I'd suggest you want to copy them off the memory card and into an appropriately named folder on your PC. Tip: make sure they've copied properly (i.e. view them) before deleting the original images off the memory card.
