When I had this problem I connected my camera to my PC USB socket. That worked.

Yes, this is the safest way to connect the camera's memory card to the PC.

It would also be the slowest way, if it weren't for WiFi. Also it requires a USB cable and there seem to be at least three different sizes of undersized USB connectors, so I never know which cable to use.

I always treat removing the and inserting the camera's memory card into another device and mainipulating (ovewrite operations) the files there as a dicey practice.I always stick religiously to this rule of never overwriting the files on another device.

The $14 for a PC Card with SD reader in my laptop was the best $14 I ever spent.

If you are worried about overwriting, you can toggle the read-only switch on your SD card.
