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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.


If you REALLY want the USB cord, you can order one from here. You could probably pick up a card reader for less at a local department, electronics, or office-supply store.

SOURCE: Nikon Coolpix 2100/3100/3200 battery compartment door latch broken (again)

I just purchased a new battery door for $15 with shipping from nikon. They sent a simple assembly diagram and I was able to replace the door in 30 minutes. I used a dremel to cut the old door off, but you dont have to do that. I got a little impatient.

Just buy the plastic piece and u can reuse the metal parts for your old battery door.

Use a cardreader to download your pictures. Download them to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can do anything you want with them.

SOURCE: Coolpix L20 usb cable will not work

The cable itself might be to blame. You should hope so, since the alternative is not good news. These cables are pretty much standard and available in any Radio Shack or Best Buy.

If that doesn't work (and you can return the cable if that's the case), I would recommend getting a cheap card reader rather than using the camera and cable to import your photos. Your camera takes SD and SD-HC cards. To be safe, you should be sure to get a card reader that can accept SD-HC cards (not all of them can).

With a card reader, it's even easier and faster to import photos. You insert your memory card into the reader, which attaches via USB on your computer, and it shows up just like a disk drive. then drag and drop your photos where you want them.

SOURCE: Nikon coolpix 4600: How to transfer pictures from camera to card?

ok I figured out how to do it! put the memory card into the camera, then go to view the pictures. Then press the menu button and scroll until you see the copy button. Then you will see the option to copy from camera to card, or card to camera. Press the option to copy from camera to card and press select all....(or whichever pictures you want copied...I wanted all pictures copied). Then voila! it takes a few seconds to copy from the camera to the card, and there you have it! :)

SOURCE: coolpix s220 won't transfer pics via usb cable

If you can get the pics using a card reader, why are you insisting on using the camera and USB cord? Pros always use a card reader.

Nikon Coolpix 3200 won't turn on even when connected to computer via the usb cable


Disconnect the camera from the computer and put in a new set of batteries. Connecting the camera to a computer simply drains the batteries faster.

Camera will not recognize a SanDisk SDHC Card, 4 GB


The Coolpix 3200 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I have a Nikon L19 Coolpix camera which I bought at Carrefour in Cartaya, Spain. When I came to download my photo's from the camera to the computer I found the cable supplied in the box with the camera,...


The USB cables supplied with digital cameras are almost all miniUSB to standard USB. The small connector on the cable fits into the camera, but it must be oriented a certain way. If you flip the small end the wrong direction, it won't fit. And sometimes the connection is tight. You can see on the small USB plug that it isn't perfectly symmetrical.

USB not recognized, no safe removal icon, wont switch off


I had the same problem. Nothing seemed to help, I even re-installed Nikon View. This helped, though. After you've connected the USB cable to both computer and camera, twist the camera end of the cable towards front of the camera. It seems like either the cable or the socket in the camera is damaged.
