You should be able to plug the camera into the computer's USB post and download the pictures from the camera onto the computer. You can check the camera's online product page for available software downloads.http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-locale=en_US&pq-path=7895
I wouldn't count on it badge, it's a Kodak, they don't seem to like working without their software, I solved the problem with my friends by taking out the memory card and sticking it in my card reader.
Having said that he may be able to get Vista compatible software from Kodak.
I love Canon, the software works great but if you don't have it, Windows picks it up as another usb drive.
