Depending on which type of device you're using, how you upload photos to your PC can vary. Most devices, including digital cameras, use some form of memory card such as SD or MMC (MultiMediaCard). Some devices, including cell phones, come with internal hard drives, which allow you to transfer content via USB directly from the device to your PC.
