Try looking at the response given here. The same solution will work in reverse. In Windows Explorer, highlight the pictures you want to transfer then drag them to your camera's drive. You can even place them in a new subdirectory.

When camera is plugged in the computer and is one, the charge lamp/flash lamp flashes and won't let you do anything like upload pictures etc. You have to disconnect from the USB port to have any function....


When the camera is connected to a computer, you can control the transfer from the computer. The camera is just a dumb slave when connected, leaving control to the computer.

You might want to consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer when download pictures. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

How do i copy pics from my computer to my nikon d90-it says the device is disconnected or has stopped working


It is never advisable to send pics from the computer to the camera...most of the time, the card and even the camera can be corrupted.

Instead of using the cord to upload pictures from camera to computer, is there a device similar to a flash drive that I can use to upload pictures to the computer from my Fuji FinePix J10 Digital Camera?


Hi,

You can download pictures from your camera to your computer by using a memory card reader (You can use your computer's built-in memory card reader, if it has one, or you can purchase an external memory card reader as shown in the attached image).

To do this, kindly remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into a card reader. Connect the card reader to the USB port of your PC (if you are using an external card reader).
Now, the memory card will be shown as a "Removable disk" in "My Computer". You can browse the images and copy the images to your computer.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

Help, I can't upload my pic's to my computer, I am using a port that worked


If you have a SD card, or any other in fact, you can get a card reader/writer at most electronics stores. This will enable you to use a card reader instead of using the camera to upload pictures.

I use a card reader all the time, and never (almost never) use a usb connecting cable to the camera to upload the pictures.
One problem which can arise is that the camera may have internal pictures taken with no card. If this is the case, you can in most cameras, copy from the internal memory to the memory card. I realize that there are digital cameras which have no way to record to internal memory, only on the memory card whether that is a SD or some other kind.

As to your direct problem. Try to reset ALL in the internal menu.

Busy message keeps flashing...wont upload photos


I posted with the same problem. I was reading the software guide that came with my camera. I ended up going to the menu on the camera and setting the camera's communication. It worked! I can now upload my pictures to my computer again.
