Re disk is full.

40 MB ? If so, the hogs must be laughing ! More likely 40 GB ? If so, what is free ? What is the full error message ? Are you sure it is not MEMORY you are talking about ? What format are your photos in ? Were you downloading straight from the camera- try reinstalling the software for doing that, and also reinstall the camera.

You can try clearing up your TEMP and Temp Internet files folders. The problem may even be viruses and parasites related ! Instead of ''downloading'' try opening the ''camera folder'' and copy/paste the photos to your computer.
