    Thank you for your help. I am pretty sure you are correct on needing the software to get the camera to upload. I have used the ports with sucess previously, and I have never had a problem uploading pics with any other cameras. I will try the memory card suggestion, that seems the easiest route.

    Okay, downloaded the driver...nothing. It does not even recognize the camera at all still. I am buying a memory card and seeing if it works. If not my next solution will be to throw it against a wall.

First, I need to ask the dumb questions:
1. Are both computers running XP?
2. When you connect the camera, do you turn the camera on?
3. Do other USB devices work when connected to the same
USB PORTS you are using to connect the camera?

Ok, since the camera is not recognized at all on both computers, we can pretty much disregard USB PORT failure, but just in case, try different USB PORTS on both, please.

Most if not all cameras should be recognized as mass storage devices just by connecting them to USB PORT on computer, and should be visible as a new drive in MY COMPUTER icon.

Maybe your bundled USB CABLE is not working, or this is one camera that insists on using the bunbled software package that came with the camera.

Last thing to try is to buy a multi-card reader/writer and put the memory card in there. That has to work!

Hope that helps.

How do I get pics of off camera when it has no sim card in it


The camera came with a CD. On it is the software you need to retrieve the pictures. But I don't think there are any on the camera, if you did not insert a memory card.
Perhaps one or two, but certainly not tons.
Before you use the USB cable (came with the camera too) to connect the camera to the computer, you have to install the software from the disk on your computer. After installing the software you can connect the camera and the computer will recognise the camera. First time give it a minute or so, because the computer needs to install and start a program.

Connection error


In order of likelihood:

1. Make sure your camera is charged (battery indicator good). Some cams can't transfer pics if battery is low.

2. Try a different USB port. Some cameras need a powered port. USB ports on the REAR of a PC usually provide more power than ones on the front, due to the way they are wired to the motherboard inside.

3. You may need to UNinstall the camera software and reboot your computer. Try plugging in your camera then; I rarely install the crappy software that comes with a camera (Windows should recognize most cameras right away). However, if all above fails, visit the camera manufacturer website for the latest software updates or assistance. I think it is:

4. Your USB cable may be defective; borrow one from a friend (make sure the ends are exactly the same), or try BigLots or BestBuy.

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.

I cant upload my pics because my laptop read the device software.


You must have been supplied the necessary software along with the camera. You need to install the soft ware before your pc can recognize that u have connected this camera.
Did u install the software?

Please install required software from the CD which you must have got with the camera package.

Getting Pictures Off My Camera and Onto My Computer


It sound like you have a problem with your memory card.
But I would try buying a card reader as well. Whether it turns out to be the card or not.
there are alot things that can go wrong when trying to use your camera to transfer the images instead of a card reader. a card reader shouldn't cost you more than 20 dollars.
It will also make transferring your images faster.
in the camera when you hit the review button do the images show up on the lcd screen of the camera?


Hope that works,
Caleb
