The error message explains your problem in a somewhat obscure manner.  The cameras USB function is designed to work only one way which is to download images.  Trying to copy to the camera from a PC is "beyond device limits"
You need to place your cameras SD card into a card reader so it will have both read/write functionality.

How to transfer photos from my coolpix L20 camera to my computer? Thanks..


There are two easy ways to transfer photos.
1) Connect via a USB cable. The cable came with your camera. If you lost it, you can buy a new one on line or from Nikon. The cable has a small plug that goes to the camera and a large end that plugs into a USB port on your computer. Once the cable is connected, turn on your camera and your computer will recognize your camera's memory card just like it recognizes an external hard drive or other device. If you go to Explorer on a PC or Finder if you have a Mac, you will see it as a device. Open the device and the folder(s) it contains then copy and paste or cut and paste the jpg files from that location to a folder on your hard drive.
2) Transfer your photos directly from your SD memory card to your computer using either your computer's SD card reader or a USB external SD card reader that you can purchase on line for $20 or less. Open the battery compartment door and you will see the end of the SD card. Remove the card from the camera by pushing it in (it is spring loaded) and releasing. It will pop out. Insert the card in your card reader and your computer will recognize the card as if it were a hard drive or similar. Follow the instructions that I gave you for transferring the files above. Both methods can be simplified if you use software such as Nikon's Transfer NX.

Ib not recognisizing pics on sd card


Most digital cameras have a small internal memory and an expandable one (SD card). Are the pictures actually stored on the card or in camera memory? If on the card then I suggest a card reader device, if on the camera you need to connect the camera to your computer via its USB cable to access them, unless there is a way to transfer them to the memory card (not all cameras can do this).

Unable to transfer images


Try 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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Windows XP won't recognize the device when it's connected via USB


Im not sure what you are refering for device driver ...but ..if you plug the camera with the card in ...using a usb cable ...the xp will see the SD card into the my computer folder like a removable storage device ...and you will be able to get picture from it ...by copy ..paste ...this is the easiest way ..
also if you plug the card directly into a card reader will be the same ..
if you are refering in this thread that your computer do not see the camera at all ..try to change the usb port ..with one in the back ...cause it may require a 2.0 usb and this is the reason that is not seeing it ...also ...may try ..(for to be sure the camera is communicating with the computer ) to plug the camera ...and start the add new hardware from the control panel ( if it do not start itself ..)
than let it find it and install it automatically ...insert the driver disk if it asks..but if you ran it before it will be not needed..

SD card


Once connected to your PC you can copy virtually any file to the SD card and transport it home. However, in doing so you do risk the possibility that the camera may not be able to properly display the existing images on its LCD screen. The files won't be damaged, so they can be manually copied to the PC afterwards. In a similar situation, .JPG images you obtain from other sources can be coped to the SD card for temporary storage, but the camera may not display them properly. In any of the above cases when a problem is experienced, manually copy the files to te PC anf reformat the SD card IN THE CAMERA.
