Well I've got camera which connects to PC with USB cable.
Then I can see another drive in a system. In that drive there is a folder in which the images reside. It is only copy file task needed.

Most digital cameras are simply USB mass storage devices.
They show up as a removable hard disk. Copy the files as you would any other file.

The question is if the camera provides a TWAIN driver.
It can but it does not need to.
Usually the camera is either a still image device which needs a TWAIN driver
or a mass storage device which makes it a removable harddisk.
Mass storage is more common.
For TWAIN there are several components available. Have a look at Torry's.
