USB Cable is shutting off my computer

I have had my camera for 2 years without problems. This morning when I plugged the USB cable in to my computer to upload photo, the computer immediately turned off, and though there was a power outage. When I tried again, the same problem occurred.

Is it the camera or the cable?

Almost positive it would be the camera. you might want to look around in local news and reportrs and stuff about power lines in the area to see if anyone else has the same problem. if not, take it in a shop

Why my Nikon Coolpix L26 isnt uploading to computer via usb to PC


When you connect the USB cable from the camera to the PC, the camera should shut down. If it doesn't perhaps your cable is defect. Or one of the connectors, from the camera or from the PC.
When the cable works on another PC (or Laptop) you can assume the cable is good. But then the USB connector in the PC could be not connected, or the USB controller in the PC is not working correct.
Sure you did install the Nikon software on the PC to?

Canon G12 does not connect to USB cable, gives error E41


Try 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.

I have a nikon coolpix S 3000 which i have beeb able to download the pictures to my computer. Tried it this morning but when i plug the usb cable into the camera the screen goes black and nothing happens....


I think it is one of these: 1. the cable is kaput or 2. the socket where the cable goes into the camera is damaged (most probable) or 3. the socket where the cable goes into the computer is damaged (easy to check)
You could try cleaning all connections with a cotton earbud.
I've had this problem before - I damaged the camera socket - I've learnt to be more gentle! To get around it I bought a card reader. This is a better option anyway, as the delicate electronics of your camera are not subject to powers surges that may occur while it's connected to your computer.
Hope this helps! H

Downloading digital pictures to the computer


Try next to locate the problem:
1. Connect other equipment to the same USB port on your PC to see if it works, if it is OK
2. Replace the cable
If that don't help, the problem is probably in the camera.
