Do you really want to do it through the USB connection?
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 Nikon Transfer and Picasa.

What is the disadvantage of nikond3100


That depends on what you compare it with.

It's larger and heavier than a point-and-shoot camera, but it's smaller and lighter than an high-end DSLR.

It has a smaller sensor than a high-end DSLR, giving poorer results, especially in low-light situations. It has a larger sensor than a point-and-shoot camera, giving better results, especially in low-light situations.

It's more complex than a point-and-shoot camera, requiring more time to learn how to use it well. It's simpler than a high-end DSLR, requiring less time to learn how to use it well.


It doesn't give you as much control over picture-taking settings as a high-end DSLR will, and many of the settings require going through menus instead of simple buttons and dials. This can make the D3100 slower in operation. It gives you more control over picture-taking settings than a point-and-shoot camera, and provides access to some of those controls through buttons and dials, instead of going through menus. This can make the D3100 quicker in operation.

The D3100 won't focus with lenses without an autofocus motor. Higher-end DSLRs will autofocus with any autofocus lens.

No two camera models are identical. Only YOU can decide which features are most important to YOU. How important is the weight of the camera? Do you want a camera that's easy to learn, or one that's easy to control?

Trying to decide between purchasing a Nikon D80 or 3100....any advice?


The D3100 is newer, for what it's worth. It has LiveView and video capabilities.

The D3100 is intended for beginners, the D80 for more experienced users. The D3100 is easier to learn, the D80 is easier to use once you learn it. The D3100 is lighter, the D80 is more rugged.

The other major difference is that the D3100 does not have an autofocus motor, depending on the lens to have one. This means that some lenses (those not designated AF-S by Nikon) will not autofocus on the D3100 while they will on the D80.

The ultimate decision is up to you. Only you can decide which features are most important to you. Also, if you can, try to get your hands on the actual cameras. See which one feels more comfortable to you.

I have a new D3100. I took pictures, then stuck the memory care in my hpC3150 card reader and the orange exclamation point lit up on the hp. I put the memory card back in the Nikon and it said, Memory...


I believe that the memory card was not formatted to the camera before using so, the pictures were corrupted and unable to read in either the computer or back in the camera. What you need to do is make sure the memory card is unlocked here is a diagram

Make sure the card is unlocked then you need to format the card.

To import pictures and videos from a digital camera
  1. Connect the camera to your computer by using the camera's USB cable.

  5. Click Import.

    A new window opens and shows the imported pictures and videos.
