You probably don't have the drivers installed. Did you first do a "set up" from the CD that came with the camera? It would be necessary to install the software onto your computer - not just insert the CD into the computer.

My Lumix DMC-TZ 10 stored pictures on its hard drive ( I don't know why, my card wasn't full!!). How do I download the photos to my computer?


How do you normally download your photos? If you do it by connecting the camera to the computer's USB port, simply remove the memory card before making the connection.

If you do it by taking the card out of the camera and putting it into a card reader, transfer the pictures from the camera to the card by using the Copy command in the Playback menu. See page 137 of the Advanced Manual: http://www.fixya.com/support/p1363715-panasonic_lumix_dmczs7_dmctz10_digital_c/usermanual-17D5735-PDF

Unable to transfer from camera to computer de to PTP blocking transfer


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.
If you really want to do it the hard way, select "USB Mode" from the Setup menu and change it "PC".

I am trying to transfer pics from my camera to my pc ??? i plugged it in and card is in camera but nothing?? help?


Here are some steps to run through to make sure the camera works as you'd expect it:

  1. Ensure that all cables are properly secured from the computer to the camera.
  2. Ensure that the memory card has not been dislodged from the camera.
  3. Check the camera's memory socket and the memory card for debris. A can of 'compressed air' can work wonders (typically available at any computer store).
  4. Make certain that the port connecting the camera to the computer is not damaged. Look for any bent pins in the camera's memory slot. Try replacing the camera cable. If the camera uses a USB port, try another USB port. If you don't have another USB port available, try plugging in another USB device to verify that the USB port is working.
  5. Check the power source on the camera. If you're using batteries while attempting to transfer the pictures to the PC, try changing your batteries, recharge the batteries, or use an A/C adapter.
  6. Try reinstalling the digital camera software on your computer. In most cases, reinstalling over top of the existing software will resolve this issue.
  7. Take the media out of the digital camera and attempt to download it to another computer. If all else fails, try formatting the camera media. Most newer-generation digital cameras equipped with an LCD screen have a menu option that can format your media.
Hope this helps.

I am trying to download pictures from my Nikon S8000 by either plugging the camera to my PC via USB or plugging the SD card into my PC, and I cannot! I can view the pictures in the camera, so I know they...


Must install the camera's driver on to your computer before plugging the usb cord into the PC.

I would as a rule install the camera's software from Nikon.com's support site if it did not install automatically.

http://www.nikonusa.com/Find-Your-Nikon/Product/Digital-Camera/26191/COOLPIX-S8000.html

It can sometimes be difficult to setup a digital camera on a new computer. Usually the process is simple: plug the camera in, allow the system to install the driver and begin using the system, however, sometimes things can go wrong. Following these steps can solve more than 90% of problems relating to USB connection issues. You must be thorough and follow it step-by-step.
  1. What CF Card is installed in the camera?
    A large number of problems are caused by incompatible CF Cards. In many cases these cards will work while shooting but can fail to properly download to the computer. You must be extra careful that the card is approved. Actually look up the card you are using in the manual to see if it on the list. Many retailers include "Unapproved" cards in their bundles, so just because a card came with the camera doesn't mean that it is "Approved".

    If in doubt, use the "Nikon Starter Card" for testing.

  2. Is the Camera in Mass Storage Mode?
    While PTP mode can be used if your camera and operating system (Mac OS X and Windows XP) supports it, for troubleshooting it may be useful to switch to MSC USB mode using the camera's setup menus.

  3. Are there images on the card that can be viewed on the camera in playback mode?
    Nikon View will not auto launch or give a transfer window with no images on the flash card. If you have covered the first three items you should now connect the camera to the rear USB port (not through a hub or front port) on the computer. On all Windows systems excluding Windows 98 Second Edition (SE) ("Plain" Windows 98 is not supported.) make sure the Nikon View CDROM has been removed from the system prior to connecting the camera.

  4. Does the LCD Display Screen go dark after being connected for 2 seconds?
    If you are not getting the "Found New Hardware" wizard then check the LCD display. If the display stays "on" and the camera seems to be in Shooting mode or Playback mode then you may have a bad cable, camera USB port or computer USB port. If this is the case, contact Nikon Support for more information or Click Here for more troubleshooting.

  5. Does "New Hardware Wizard" Start?
    If you connect the Camera and a "Found New Hardware" wizard comes up you should allow the system to auto search for the driver by simply clicking the "Next" button until it is finished. (Windows 98SE requires the Nikon View CD-ROM to be in the CD-drive at this point.) On Windows systems newer than Windows 98SE the camera should pick up and use the Microsoft Mass Storage driver.

  6. "Hardware Handshaking"
    You need to understand how hardware handshaking works. The hardware Handshake occurs when a USB device is connected to the USB port. The computer detects the USB device on the USB bus and asks: "What are you?" The Coolpix line of cameras should answer: "I am a Nikon Coolpix 5700 currently set to Mass storage mode."

    If the computer does not understand this message the most likely cause is an incompatibility with the USB chipset on the particular USB controller that the USB port is connected to. You can check your controller chipset on the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility list. First find your "USB Controller" (i.e. Intel 82801AA USB Host Controller) in your computer's "Device Manager" and then look it up on the above link. You can tell if the handshake failed if the camera is listed in Device Manager under “Unknown Devices” or “Other Devices”.

  7. Drivers
    The Mass Storage Driver set consists of two drivers. The first driver is the “Mass Storage Driver” ("Nikon Mass Storage" driver on Windows 98SE systems) and the second is the driver for the CF card in the camera. The CF Card driver should be listed under “Disk Drives” in Device Manager. Be sure both drivers are installed and showing up cleanly in Device Manager.

  8. Auto Launch
    If both drivers are installed "cleanly" in Device Manager (no question mark or exclamation point) then you do not have a camera or driver issue. If Nikon View does not “Auto Launch” or the Nikon View “Transfer Window” comes up but fails to transfer images then the you can usually resolve these problems with the following steps. Nikon View is not required to transfer images from Nikon Coolpix camera’s capable of running in Mass Storage Mode.

  9. If the drivers are clean but you are unable to transfer images
    Double click on “My Computer" and verify that a “Removable Disk” icon with a drive letter is listed. If the "Removable Disk" is not listed then there may be Network Drives mapped with drive letters that follow the last actual local drive listed. If this is the case Click Hereto learn how to change the drive letters to accommodate the Removable disk

  10. If the Removable disk does mount
    There are two simple ways of transferring images:
    a) You can click through the directories on the removable disk: i.e. "g:\DCIM\100Nikon" and copy the entire contents of this directory then paste into a local drive location such as "c:\My Documents\My Pictures."
    b) The second option would be to launch Nikon View and select the removable disk from the folder list on the left. With the removable disk expanded down to the "100Nikon" directory you can "select all" and drag the images to a local drive location listed on the left.

  11. Transfer starts but fails to transfer all pictures.
    If Nikon Transfer starts but fails at any point during the transfer then there may be some bad picture files or corrupted data on the flash card. This will sometimes occur if the card has been used in a card reader to move non-picture files between various computers.

    Note at which file number the transfer is failing and go through the mounted removable disk to delete that picture file. You can also copy all the picture files except the damaged files from the card. Always format the flash card in the camera after you have recovered the undamaged picture files to the computer.

How do I get the pictures from the camera to my computer?


There should be a CD and USB cable that come with your camera. Install the CD and install the program. Connect cable from camera to computer. Turn camera to view setting and turn on. On screen prompts should ask if you want to download pictures from camera.

DSC-S730 copy my picture to my computer?


The procedure to transfer pictures to a Computer depends on whether or not the Camera has the capability of using Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP). If the Camera is capable of PTP (in this case; DSC-S730 - YES), set the USB mode in the Camera menu to PTP and then use the PTP procedure to copy the pictures to the computer. Otherwise, use one of the standard USB transfer procedures.

This procedure must be performed while logged in as Administrator or to an account with Administrator rights:

  1. Turn on the Computer.
  2. Turn on the Camera.
  3. Insert the recording media containing the pictures into the Camera.
  4. Set the USB connection or Transfer mode setting in the Camera menu to PTP .
  5. Use the USB cable supplied with the Camera to connect the Camera to the Computer. NOTE: Connection through a USB hub or other USB device --such as a printer or keyboard-- is not supported and cannot be guaranteed. The Camera should be connected directly to a USB port on the Computer.
    NOTE: The Scanner and Camera Wizard should automatically start.
  6. In the Scanner and Camera Wizard window, click the Next button.
  7. Under Choose Pictures to Copy , do one of the following:
    • Click to select each picture you want to copy.
    • Click Select All to select all the pictures for copying.
    NOTE: Selected images will be marked with a green check mark.
  8. Click the Next button.
  9. Under Picture Name and Destination , in the Type a name for this group of pictures field, enter a name for the folder where the pictures will be saved.
  10. Next to the Choose a place to save this group of pictures field, click the Browse button.
  11. In the Browse for Folder window, click to select the location on the computer where you want to save the pictures.
  12. Click the OK button.
  13. In the Scanner and Camera Wizard window, click the Next button. NOTE: The pictures are copied to the Computer.
  14. After the transfer process it finished, under Other Options , click to select Nothing, I'm finished working with these pictures .
  15. Click the Next button.
  16. Click the Finish button.
If you are still unable to transfer pictures, please switch the USB mode of the Camera to Normal or Mass Storage and try again.
After following the steps above, the pictures from the camera should successfully be copied to the computer. If for some reason the pictures did not copy, try using the method for standard USB picture transfer.

I'm assuming you are using the Windows XP Operating System in the Computer. If not then follow this link:
