Question about Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Cannot transfer pictures from camera to computer

The first time we connected our USB to our laptop it automatically copied our pictures. Sometime after that, I placed a memory stick from our other Sony camera into the Nikon S210 memory slot. Since that time, I have been unable to transfer pictures to my computer. I have loaded the Nikon Transfer software and still nothing. I have tried copying pictures from two different operating systems (i.e. XP, Vista,) and still nothing.
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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Try formatting the memory card before inserting it into the slot. also try using the memory card that you were using before you got all these problems

Transfer pictures from camera to computer


I have two digital cameras and transferring pictures couldn't be easier.

I simply plug the usb lead into the camera and switch it on and then plug the lead into the computer. Both the camera and the computer recognise they have been connected and the Windows photo wizard starts automatically. From there photos can be downloaded from the camera or deleted.

DSC-S730 copy my picture to my computer?


The procedure to transfer pictures to a Computer depends on whether or not the Camera has the capability of using Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP). If the Camera is capable of PTP (in this case; DSC-S730 - YES), set the USB mode in the Camera menu to PTP and then use the PTP procedure to copy the pictures to the computer. Otherwise, use one of the standard USB transfer procedures.

This procedure must be performed while logged in as Administrator or to an account with Administrator rights:

  1. Turn on the Computer.
  2. Turn on the Camera.
  3. Insert the recording media containing the pictures into the Camera.
  4. Set the USB connection or Transfer mode setting in the Camera menu to PTP .
  5. Use the USB cable supplied with the Camera to connect the Camera to the Computer. NOTE: Connection through a USB hub or other USB device --such as a printer or keyboard-- is not supported and cannot be guaranteed. The Camera should be connected directly to a USB port on the Computer.
    NOTE: The Scanner and Camera Wizard should automatically start.
  6. In the Scanner and Camera Wizard window, click the Next button.
  7. Under Choose Pictures to Copy , do one of the following:
    • Click to select each picture you want to copy.
    • Click Select All to select all the pictures for copying.
    NOTE: Selected images will be marked with a green check mark.
  8. Click the Next button.
  9. Under Picture Name and Destination , in the Type a name for this group of pictures field, enter a name for the folder where the pictures will be saved.
  10. Next to the Choose a place to save this group of pictures field, click the Browse button.
  11. In the Browse for Folder window, click to select the location on the computer where you want to save the pictures.
  12. Click the OK button.
  13. In the Scanner and Camera Wizard window, click the Next button. NOTE: The pictures are copied to the Computer.
  14. After the transfer process it finished, under Other Options , click to select Nothing, I'm finished working with these pictures .
  15. Click the Next button.
  16. Click the Finish button.
If you are still unable to transfer pictures, please switch the USB mode of the Camera to Normal or Mass Storage and try again.
After following the steps above, the pictures from the camera should successfully be copied to the computer. If for some reason the pictures did not copy, try using the method for standard USB picture transfer.

I'm assuming you are using the Windows XP Operating System in the Computer. If not then follow this link:

Need to know how to transfer my photos from my camera to my computer


1.  In the absence of the type of your digital camera, I will assume that you are using a USB connection to link your camera and computer.

1.  Connect your camera to the computer with USB cord when the camera is off.

2.  Switch on your camera

3.  If the Camera window doesnot appear automatically go and click the Start button then select the Control Panel

4.  In the Control Panel Select the Scanners and Camera icon then you will see your camera displayed on the opened window of Scanners and Cameras

5. Double click the camera icon on the screen and you will immediately see the pictures in your camera being read.

6.  A box with the Scanners and Camera Wizard will eppear with "Back", "Next" and "Cancel" click Next and then the pictures in your camera will be displayed with ticks markings

7.  If you want to copy all into "My Pictures/..." just select Next and the computer will start copying them.

8.  If you do not want to copy all of them then you can unmark those you dont want to copy and click next.

9.  Once the copying is through you can rest assured your pictures have been transferred to your computer.

I wish all the best with your new photos on your laptop!  Please remember when you are through to switch off the camera to preserve the battery for the next pictures to be taken.
