    I have a Nikon 990 but do not have the original software. I have tried installing newer versions but to no avail. I plug the camera in via the USB plug and it does nothing.

I have the original CD and removed all the extra software, leaving just the USB driver and the transfer program.

Send me an e-mail to jeff.92677 at yahoo.com if you are still trying to find the driver. The ISO image I have with just the USB support is about 3 1/2 meg. Easy to e-mail. I'm using it now to move images from CP990 to computer.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then removethe memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader.Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of yourworking computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device oran external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card andcopy the photos to your computer.Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. Youcan copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off yourmemory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing anyprograms.

Nikon coolpix 990: i can not transfer picture from coolpix 990 to PC


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.

Download a driver for the Coolpix 990


You dont need the disc to download to computer.Take the card from the camera and put it into the card reader on your computer if one is fitted, if not you need one that goes into a USB slot When the card is inserted into the reader a box will open on the screen with several options as to view images or download them.

I would also download Picasa 3 which puts your photos in date order and also has photo editing. This is a free download and is part of google.

Coolpix 4300 needs driver & update for vista


this solution was originally written by a fellow expert dauphine



You can download PictureProject software from this address: http://chsv-soft.nikon-image.com/jpn/software/win/S-P2____-175WU-JPNJP.exe

That is the only Nikon software that supports Vista since your camera is "outdated".

Here is a quote from Nikon site:


  • We had released a Windows Vista-compatible version of PictureProject, v1.7.5, for use with the models listed below, and all models that followed. PTP (models supporting the PTP protocol) and Mass storage USB transfer options can be used for camera connection. However, the camera's transfer button can not be used to transfer pictures over a PTP connection. Set the USB transfer option to Mass storage to enable the camera's transfer button.
    Currently, the new Nikon Transfer and View NX will replace Picture Project as our new Image Transfer and Browser applications. These applications support the same Nikon products as Picture Project.
COOLPIX P4, COOLPIX P3, COOLPIX P2, COOLPIX P1,COOLPIX S10, COOLPIX S9, COOLPIX S8, COOLPIX S7c, COOLPIX S7, COOLPIX S6, COOLPIX S5, COOLPIX S4, COOLPIX S3, COOLPIX S2, COOLPIX S1,COOLPIX L6, COOLPIX L5, COOLPIX L4, COOLPIX L3, COOLPIX L2, COOLPIX L1/L101,COOLPIX SQ, COOLPIX 8800, COOLPIX 8700, COOLPIX 8400, COOLPIX 7900, COOLPIX 7600,COOLPIX 5900, COOLPIX 5700, COOLPIX 5600, COOLPIX 5400, COOLPIX 5200, (COOLPIX 5100), COOLPIX 5000, COOLPIX 4800, (COOLPIX 4600), COOLPIX 4500, COOLPIX 4300, COOLPIX 4200, COOLPIX 4100, COOLPIX 3700, COOLPIX 3500, COOLPIX 3200, COOLPIX 3100, COOLPIX 2500, COOLPIX 2200, COOLPIX 2100, COOLPIX 2000,COOLPIX 995, COOLPIX 885, COOLPIX 775.We do not plan to offer compatibility for COOLPIX 990 OR COOLPIX 880 connection to a computer with Windows Vista preinstalled. Use a card reader or card slot to transfer images.

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.
