    I've got a Sony MVC-FD75. It uses a standard 3.5 floppy disc instead of a memory stick. Very easy to use. You can get them at Walmart fairly resonable.

    I usely get 30 pic's per disc, but after I put the disc in the computer and copy them to the hard drive, I usely format (or is it called reformat) the disc and reuse it over and over. So it's pretty econamical.

    interesting, did not know any cameras were made with such storage system, wild. you feel it takes quality enough pics to use to list odds and ends for auction on eBay ? thats what im looking for one for,

    do you have the cord(s) required to connect to tower ? does windows XP have the drivers, or do you know ?
    and how much for it or ?

    and does anyone have or know of any other camera(s) currently ?

    thanks

    I think the cam Z3PR is speaking of doesn't have a USB port. For me, I want that, you might too. Plus I hate those 3.5 discs. You can get stuff for like $150 that works well. Find something you like, then shop around. The net is a wonderful place to find great deals. Sometimes far less then stores around you....

    And the problem with the disks is they are getting rid of them.. The new computers you are going to be buying won't even have a floppy drive in them..

    I have seen digi cams with CD burners in them already... USB and a CD burner would make for a good combo I think. Now the question is can I put a USB port on my P100 /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    i havent yet seen a tower that wasnt with a couple of USB ports on it except maybe the old HP200 i have stashed away not using cuz has the dinosaur stacked style not upgradeable motherboards, it also has an old tape drive i never knew they existed, all these puters in here have 3.5", this one im on right now is a four year old gateway atx pentium 450, mine was a gateway 650 select amd athlon slot A, ive got an old atx style compaq 400 slot 1 over across the way runs good but doggy on page changes though but only 64mb ram is why, the compaq has even less ram than that and is not common pci style ram cards /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif basically a museum piece nowadays

    thanks

    No cables required. Yes, the pics are a very good quality in my opinion. You take the pic, if you don't like it, just delete it and snap another one. Walmart This is one step up from what I have. But pretty close. Mine doesn't have the memory stick. This one at Walmart has both floppy disc, and memory stick. I think it it has the USB hook up. Mine is the older modle and is floppy disc only. I have this one
