Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera
I downloaded nikon view 5.1.4 from nikon site. The first time I was able to transfer pictures to the computer. I have a HP pavilion a305w with Windows XP home edition. When I tried to transfer pictures the next time, they would not transfer. When I called up the nikon view 5, and clicked on transfer, I got a message that there was no CF card in the attached camera. I have tried to transfer the pictures several times, but have had no success. I'm I doing something wrong, or do I need to unstall the Nikon View and reinstall. Thanks for your help.
Consider 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.

Connect the cam to a pc and turn it on. Discard the box that pops up. Open windows explorer. You'll see Removable Disk listed in the folders pane. Drop all image files you want to transfer to a folder named Nikon under the Removable Disk folder. But the files must be named DSCNxxxx for the camera to understand them.

Can't be done. Digital SLR cameras only view through the eyepiece, unless they have a "live view" function, which the D40 does not. The LCD is therefore for viewing an image after it is shot, and setting your menu options.

SOURCE: NIKON D2H ERR FAULT
I had a D2H with a similar error. The camera started giving an 'ERR' message almost from new but from reading various posts from other users I assumed it was a 'known' idiosyncrasy of the D2H, the camera would create an underexposed first shot after turning on. A colleague has the same problem on his D2H, and there are numerous references to the same problem on the web. Your post points to a similar shutter issue. My shutter failed completely at around 65,000 actuations, well short of the advertised '150,000'. In addition, the horizontal Main Command Dial had also failed a short time before, and it had cost me £135GBP to have that repaired.
The problem is down to the shutter and unfortunately replacing the shutter costs £349GBP in the UK, quoted to me by the Nikon UK Service Department, in Kingston, in March 09.
As for Nikon repairing it under a 'goodwill' policy, you may have better luck than me if you live somewhere other than the UK. I told them to keep mine, as attempting to charge me for the repair was the last straw, it wasn’t worth me spending another £350 on a camera that hadn’t been reliable in the first place. I had been planning on getting a D3 in October/November but will now probably sell my Nikon gear and go over to Canon, as Nikon don’t seem too bothered about their professional user base, and I certainly won’t be paying £5,000 for a D3X.
