Question about Nikon D3100 Digital Camera

Can't import photos from Nikon D3100

I have a Nikon D3100. When I connect it to Picasa using a USB cord, Picasa will acquire the files, but then I can't import them. I have tried importing from other devices (a flashdrive, my IPhone) and that works fine. So the problem seems to be the camera, although it has worked perfectly fine for months. Any suggestions as to how to fix this problem?

Ensure you are shooting in JPEG mode. If you are shooting RAW format or anything else Picasa may not handle that file type. Hope this helps!

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 Picasa or any other photo cataloging program.

SOURCE: Coolpix L20 usb cable will not work

The cable itself might be to blame. You should hope so, since the alternative is not good news. These cables are pretty much standard and available in any Radio Shack or Best Buy.

If that doesn't work (and you can return the cable if that's the case), I would recommend getting a cheap card reader rather than using the camera and cable to import your photos. Your camera takes SD and SD-HC cards. To be safe, you should be sure to get a card reader that can accept SD-HC cards (not all of them can).

With a card reader, it's even easier and faster to import photos. You insert your memory card into the reader, which attaches via USB on your computer, and it shows up just like a disk drive. then drag and drop your photos where you want them.

SOURCE: How do I import videos

When you inserted the memory card your computer added an icon on the desktop, near the upper right corner, for the memory card.
Double-click the memory card and look for a folder labeled MISC.
You'll find the videos in this location.

I have a D3100 and all of my photos i need are in RAW+F what is the best program so i can add them to my computer?


You don't need any special program. If you've shot in RAW+F then you have two copies of every photograph on your memory card. One is RAW, the other is JPEG. Any photo cataloging/viewing program can handle JPEG photos.

If you want to deal with the RAW version, you can use Nikon ViewNX2 (see the Nikon Transfer link above).
