    Do they show up as files or does the sd card appear blank? What does This PC show? It should show the F: drive with what is used size wise verses total size if it is reading it correctly. Is she reading it with a built-in reader or external reader? May need updated drivers.

    Sorry so many questions.

    DCIM is a standard name for a folder on a camera SD card. If she can see that then the pictures are (hopefully) inside that folder and can be copied.

    OK, that sounds like she's plugging the camera into the USB not just trying to read the card outside the camera. That is a bit different. Will wait to she what she says.

    And what adamf just said.
