PC/Macintosh Compatibility - The NV15 communicated well with both Windows and Macintosh PCs without needing any software installed. Connect the supplied USB cable to your computer and turn the camera on. A message will appear on the LCD asking if you're connecting to a computer or a printer.
On a PC running Windows Vista - the computer opened an "Auto Play" menu which allowed the pictures to be viewed or imported into the Windows Pictures folder. You are prompted to enter a name for the folder and asked if you want to delete the images from the camera. You can then use the Windows Photo Gallery or your software of choice to edit, print, email or copy the photos.
On a Macintosh running OS X 10.5 Leopard - the computer automatically opened the iPhoto application and offered to transfer the images to iPhoto. I was prompted to enter a name for the folder and asked if I wanted to delete the images from the camera. After transfer I used the iPhoto application to edit photos, print , order a photo book, etc.
