Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

I will need to ask a few questions about the devices involved, please:

- What DVR do you have, by maker and model # ?

- And is your laptop a Windows PC -type? or an Apple laptop?

Please let me know, in Reply To Expert, and I will advise you further.

That is not a DVR model, that I know of, I'm sorry to say.

Here's a general method to try:

1. get a USB flash drive of fairly large capacity (4 GB at least).

2. connect it to the USB port of your DVR.

3. back up your DVR to the USB flash drive.

(Or, copy pictures to the USB flash drive.)

4. remove the flash drive from the DVR, plug it in to the laptop.

5. copy pictures off the flash drive onto the laptop.

That should work. Let me know if there are any problems, or if there is any information you need to know about any step listed above.

IM totally in dark with this microsoft upgrade.Disney mailed me 2 DVR with pictures. I dont have a clue about mfg?

Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.

Oh. I see. OK: you were mailed DVD discs, in a cardboard envelope, no doubt.

Not a 'DVR', which is a box that records video information.

To transfer off of those DVD discs, you'd need a DVD drive on your computer.

Not just a CD drive, but one with DVD disc capability. If it says 'DVD' in embossing on the

cover or front of the drive on your computer, then it is a DVD drive, and can read your DVD discs.

Locate pictures on one of those DVD discs, once it is inserted in your DVD drive, and reading OK.

Select a picture off that drive, then copy it to ... anywhere you want it on the computer, such as a special folder, or esp. a special folder in the

+ Pictures

area, where it would be easy to find again.

Does that make sense of the process?
