Windows 98 driver needed

I recently bought a Nikon camera and was told to buy a card reader as it isn't supported in windows 98. I bought your nexxtech usb sd/mmc travel card reader which says it is windows 98 compatible, but no driver exists on the windows 98 cd to make it work. Can you tell me which to use or what to download and where, please
Thank you
June

You'll need the model number of your card reader, then visit the nexxtech site to download your driver:

Nikon Coolpix s210 drivers


if the support guy toldy to by a reader i'm sure it's because that was the only solution. more than like ly the driver is obsolete and no longer available. i'm sure that this is not what you wanted to hear but unfortunately when it comes to new electronics versus older computer. there is always 1 or 2 problems that can't be overcome the conventional way. in general terms windows is always updating security patchs or registry fixes and they don't always include alot of the drivers from prior hardware. card readers are not that expensive anymore and probably will save you money and frustration in the long run. hope this helps. please rate this solution and good luck.

Drivers for nikon coolpix L20 cam


Hi

I'm sorry there are no drivers for this camera, no one is making them for windows 98, windows xp and newer come with the software build in.

I'll save you some time and fustration, take the camera - memory card to a local camera shop or a photo place where they can print them out or burn them to a CD, then you can view them on your computer from the CD.

I lost the cord, got one from a flea market...and nothing


you can plug out your memory XD, and buy memory card reader for supporting XD picture card. Memory card reader can bought in computer shop, and plug it on USB slot.

Nikon coolpix P50 driver


Use a memory card and a generic USB card reader. That is the easiest route.

Need driver for this camera for windows 98


debra_s,

You'll have to explain what you want to do? If you want to download your images, you don't need a driver, just attach a Windows 98 compatible card reader to your USB port and download your pictures to your favorite photo manager. You should be able to attach your camera via USB, and if the USB drivers detect the camera's disk, then a new drive will appear your My Computer.

If you have Windows 98 Second Edition, you should be set to go, if you have Windows 98 First Edition (where it doesn't say Second Edition in the My Computer properties), you'll have a tougher time with the USB connections. It would be best to upgrade your machine, or find the Windows 98 SE upgrade from a friend.

The CD that came with the camera will have the necessary software for Windows 98 SE.

What have you tried to do? What isn't working? Let me know some details and I'll help you out.

Hope these ideas help. Clarify some things and I can give you a more narrow answer.

To correct this: Connect the camera to the computer, and turn the camera on. Right click on My Computer (on the desktop) and select "Properties" Click the "Hardware" tab (Windows 2000 and Windows XP, Windows 98 click "Device Manager" tab) Click the Device Manager Look for the following: Unknown Device Other Devices Digital Camera USB Device Double click on one of the above items (which really is the camera, just not properly being recognized). Click the "Driver" tab Click the button marked "Reinstall Driver" or "Update Driver" The "Update Driver Wizard" will appear Choose the "Display a list" (or similar) option Choose the last option "Do not search, I will choose the driver to install." Update the driver that the camera is using by choosing from the list displayed or clicking "Have Disk" and browse to either a disk or a downloaded directory. The latest version of the drivers as well as the entire Nikon View program can be downloaded from the Nikon Technical Support web site. http://www.nikontechusa.com/ Click on your camera model and then "Software Downloads". These downloadable drivers are only needed for Windows 98 users, or Coolpix 880/990, all other OS's use the operating systems built-in camera drivers.
