I wish I could tell you what I did. ALl I did was unplug the cable several times from the computer and the camera. I used a duster to blow out any dust particles in the connection areas. I turned the computer and the camera on and off several times. It finally worked.

Memory Error


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

What's your problem?My husband got a Vivitar ViviCam 7028 as a rewards gift from his company and we've been busy taking lots of photos and video on it, but when I try to download the photos to my...


The first problem is explained by the error message. Your camera is consuming too much power to go through a USB hub. Try connecting it directly to a USB port on your computer, without going through a hub.

The second problem is most likely related to the card reader. You didn't specify the exact model of Belkin reader so I can't give you a definite answer, but it appears the reader is designed for SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it will not work with devices not specifically designed to work with SDHC cards.

To sum up: If you want to use a USB port, connect directly to it without going through a hub. If you want to use a card reader, make sure the reader is SDHC-compatible.
If you have additional questions, or some part of the above isn't clear, please feel free to respond to this post.

When i attach the coolpix L12 to the computer nothing happens.


Consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer.

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. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.
