      Hey John,

      I use the Olympus SmartMedia card (64 mb) and the cable that came with the
      camera for transferring files between my desktop and laptop for files over
      1.4 mb. The problem comes when I don't erase the file and my husband
      catches me when he's transferring pix from the card to his computer. He
      wants to know how the camera managed to shoot a .zip or .exe file <G>.

      Works well until we breakdown and network all these computers...
