Janos, If you only want to retrieve the images there is a simple alternative. Go to DSE/Tandy or a similar electronics store and buy a USB multi format card reader. Simply take the compact flash card out of the cam and read it in the reader. It will be heaps quicker to transfer your images as well, especially if it's a USB2 reader. I have seen readers for under $30 and if you get a multi type it will serve you well into the future no matter what cam you get.. There's one at DSE for $39.95 that reads 7 different types of card. I have a 12 in 1 USB2 model that came from Jaycar for around $50 They can also be found on Ebay.
