My Dad gave me his Nikon Coolpix 995 and I cannot get the pictures off the camera and onto my computer. My computer is a windows machine running Microsoft 2007. Is there something I can download from the internet to help me get my pictures?

Easiest thing to do is to pull out the memory card and stick it into the computer direct if you've got the slot.

If not try to dig up the cd that came with the camera and run the setup from there.

Or you could download it direct from Nikon's site.

It's not complicated but Nikon didn't do that great of a job with their support site I must admit.

Plug the camera into the computer. Open up my computer, and double click on the removable disk icon that pops up when you plug your camera into the computer. Look in the various folders (usually DCIM) for your pictures and copy them over.

Hey,

Plug in the camera to the computer, you should hear a ding sound. now open my computer and look for removeable storage device, you could disconnect or turn off the camera at this point and then press f5 on the my computer window to refresh, then plug it back again, the drive that appears and dissapears contains the picture, double click to open the drive and navigate the folders to find the pictures from the drive.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

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, such as Nikon Transfer or Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Unable to transfer pictures


Just get a card reader and insert the smart card from the camera into it. It will show up as a drive on you computer. Go into the DCIM file and your pictures will be in there.

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.
