Specs: Windows XP
Why is it that one can immediately start transferring data from a Camera or Mobile onto a P.C. whereas ,as for a Printer , Scanner or Web Cam,one would have to first install the Program from the the CD or DVD (that came along with the product) onto the P.C. before one can transfer data from the Product onto the P.C. (or vice-versa) ?

Because when you plug in a camera or phone the system only recognises it as a storage device - it's looking directly at the filesystem in the camera/phone. With printers etc. you need to install the drivers before plugging them in so the system knows what is being attached and so that the appropriate software starts up.
