Get a card reader that can deal with Sony's memory stick.

The V1 is older, so if you had the USB cable, you'd have to load some fairly old drivers which may not be a good idea for newer operating systems. I think my preferred method of transferring images would be to use a card reader like BillDrew says.

Also, the V1 doesn't come with a charger, but it does come with an AC adapter which is used to charge the battery while it's in the camera. If, you don't have the AC Adapter, Adorama has them. [http://www.adorama.com/ISOACLS5.html] They also have the batteries for the V1. [http://www.adorama.com/ISONPFC11.html] And, just in case, they also have a charger for the V1's batteries as well. [http://www.adorama.com/ISOBCVC10.html}

You can also get the V1 Manual at http://www.docs.sony.com/release/dscv1.pdf if you need it.
