Marc, I believe it uses Compact Flash cards for storage - I would recommend you 
buy a card reader for a few dollars, use that to get your pictures onto your 
PC, and forget all about the software.

Subject: [rollei_list] VERY OT: For PC Computer Gurus Only


I have an antiquated, in the grand scheme of 
things, Rollei (on-topic!) d41 digital 
camera.  The software for this only afforded a 
really dodgey connection to my computer when I 
was using Windows 98SE:  I would have to do 
repetitive reboots with the camera turned on to 
get a response.    I recently upgraded to Windows 
XP Professional, and cannot make a connection of 
any sort.  When I access the d41 program, I am 
told that the camera cannot be found.  When I 
reboot, I am told that I need to install a mystic 
driver for some "USB host to host 
bridge".  Checking out the Internet reveals that 
this is a COMMON problem but one which divides 
into two universes:  computer gurus do not find 
this a problem and laugh at the rest of us who 
are lost in the outer darkness, so that we have a 
REAL split here.  One guys suggests running 
REGEDIT and eliminating the entire ENUM tree 
which apparently does away with all drivers, and 
then rebooting, but this both seems a bit drastic 
to me and also leaves me more than a bit queasy, 
as I really do NOT like to play about with the 
registry.  Another guy suggested using USB 2.0 
drivers but did not seem able to explain why this would help the problem.

I have updated my XP completely.  I have checked 
out the Microsoft and Genesis and Intel sites to no avail.

I am operating a four-year-old Pentium 4 with 512 
of high memory, and an 850 family Intel CHIPSET, if that helps at all.

Any thoughts, happy campers, as we draw into 
close conversation over the fire and eat those 
last wienies of the summer as Autumn draws near.

Mayhaps I ought to just toss the camera into the 
nearest public reservoir and buy me a new camera, 
maybe one of those Panasonics with the "Leica" 
Vario-Elmarit lenses or perhaps a Sony with a true Carl Zeiss lens.  Hmm.
