Consider NOT connecting your camera to your 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

It may be time to buy a card reader for your computer. You can get one at a department or electronics store for not much more than a cup of coffee.

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 any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I connected the cable and managed to transfer one picture from my Nikon S8100 to the computer. The computer tells me that there are no more pictures to transfer, but I cannot find them!!! Where should I...


When you connect your Nikon camera to your computer some program is automatically loading up and then transferring your pictures over. If you haven't deleted the picture from your camera then reconnect your camera back to your computer. Follow the same steps you did the first time but watch the screen carefully. When the program tells you it is copying the picture over it should have a window open to the directory that it is using for the transfer. You should be able to get to that directory in your computer to work with your picture.

If the program deleted the picture from your camera then just shoot another picture so that you have something to work with. Most programs use some kind of a naming convention when it is saving your pictures, Usually it is a name made up of the date you are transferring the picture on as well as a number. The program should open a window before the transfer is completed to allow you to use your own naming convention.

Computer will no longer recognize camera


That doesn't work. I plug in an older camera and nothing happens at all. Autoplay doesn't start up. If you go to My Computer, the device does not show up. Therefore I can't get my pictures off my camera.
