Mines a Labtec mouse too, probably the same one, i'm trying it again 
see how I get on, it's a shame not to use it really as the cursor 
control is so much better than a ball mouse.

I don't think the camera was the problem thinking about it now, the 
problem was with some adapter thing which was plugs into the USB port 
of the computer one and you plug the camera card in the other end, 
nothing happened, it was a bit of an old piece of equipment, maybe a 
different card reader would have worked ?

I was expecting it to behave like a hard disc really, plug in, and a 
directory will appear with all the files on the camera card displayed 
- is that right ?

The camera used was an Olympus D-490 Zoom 2.1 Megapixel. I don't think 
the camera can connect directly to the Iyonix can't see any USB 
sockets anywhere.
