Using the memory card reader
Insert the media into the correct card slot on
the reader until it stops. The activity light (A)
on the memory card reader lights, and the PC
automatically detects the media.
An Autoplay window opens. Select a program
to access your files. The PC opens a program
so you can access the media contents. You
can copy files from or to the media.
If the Autoplay window does not open, you
can click Start, click My Computer, and
then double-click the memory card icon to
display the files on the memory card.
