Yes, but what works even better is to get yourself a usb card reader.
They are inexpensive (I just bought a 5-in-one Lexar for around $30usd)
and then you don't need to have your camera on and using up its battery
when you want to work with the pictures.

These card readers are a totally unnecessary expense. US$30 for something
you don't need sounds very expensive to me.

YMMV. I need one. I don't like to leave my camera on, using up its
battery while getting the pictures. I don't like to install unnecessary
camera drivers and software which are sometimes iffy. I also do data
retrieval of camera memory cards for clients. So actually I *do* need a
card reader and the $30 was well worth it. If you don't want to buy a
card reader, that's your choice.

Sorry for the double post, but there's another good reason to use card
readers: sharing pictures with others. When I visited my family back
East, we all had different digital cameras and of course were busy
taking pictures. We hooked up a multi-type card reader to one of our
laptops and were able to look at everybody's pictures without needing
to install anything on the laptop.

But of course, YMMV. I don't sell card readers or have stock in any
companies that make them, so the suggestion to the OP was just that; a
suggestion for something that works well for me.

Can't imagine `not having a card reader. Never ever have I done a camera
to pc transfer. Only thing I've hooked a cord to camera's for is upgrading
firmware. Usually so they would take bigger mem cards.

so the answer is yes. see,i have a camera,and my kids have another.they
upload their photos for all their friends,and I prefer not to have to look at
their silly stuff.
reason i asked we installed software for 2 different brand cameras on a 98
box and it crashed.

I suppose so...

I have two webcams (two x logitech express) - for whatever reason - and
they don't conflict at all.
if the logitech camera software, you just choose which one you want to take
pictures from.
