A word of warning from ones that know....if you are ever going to play with the digital camera and see why it won't hold the flash setting you want or anything like that, then please, please download all pictures currently stored on the camera.
This way you do not run the risk of loosing the pictures and video of your son's 4th Birthday, or the cute pictures of your 2 year old son, or the picture of the vegetables that have successfully grown in the garden.
Steve is still feeling really P*#%^! about that one, as it seems he may have accidentally, and I do believe him, wiped all the above from the camera.
Oh well such is life.
