USB device not detected

I can't transfer pictures from the camera to the laptop, it says the USB device can not be recognized. I did install all the software correctly,plugged in the cable and turned the camera on, It only says 'connecting computer' and nothing happens. Now when I do it again,the computer does not react and the camera just turns on as if I wanted to take a picture. I tried this on 2 laptops and 1 computer, same thing, the USB device is not recognized. Can anybody help?

Nikon Coolpix S52C camera transfer pictures problem.

If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the 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 your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

Please follow the steps below for connecting the Camera to the Computer for transferring the images.

Turn the Camera ON.

Turn the Computer ON.

Make sure to Insert the Memory Stick in the Camera.

Set the USB CONNECT option in the Setup 2 Menu of the Camera to PTP. [Set the Mode dial of the Camera to Camera, press the Menu button, select SETUP-->SETUP2-->USB CONNECT-->PTP-->OK.]

Connect the Camera to the Computer using the supplied USB cable.

The Computer will automatically install the USB Driver for the Camera.

When the installation completes, an AutoPlay window will appear.

In the AutoPlay window, click the Import Pictures option.

In the Importing Pictures and Videos window, click the Import button.

If the USB connection from the camera is not recognized by the computer, disconnect the USB cable and repeat changing the USB CONNECT option to PictBridge, Mass Storage or Auto.

If the issue persists, try connecting to a different USB port on the Computer.

Try re-installing the USB Driver from the Device Manager.

Good Luck!

  1. Turn on the camera.
  2. Insert the recording media containing the pictures into the camera.
  3. Depending on your camera, set the USB Connection or Transfer mode setting in the menu to the Mass Storage , Normal , or PTP .
  4. Use the USB cable supplied with the camera to connect the camera to the computer. IMPORTANT:
    • Connection through a USB hub or other USB device -- such as a printer or keyboard -- is not supported and cannot be guaranteed. Connect the camera directly to a USB port on the computer.
    • If the USB connection from the camera is not recognized by the computer, disconnect the USB cable and repeat steps 4 and 5 using a different USB Connection or Transfer mode setting. If the connection is still not recognized, further troubleshooting is available.

    • The computer will automatically install the USB driver for the camera.
    • When the camera connection is established, an AutoPlay window will appear.

  5. In the AutoPlay window, click Import pictures .
  6. In the Importing Pictures and Videos window, click the Import button. NOTE: After the pictures have been imported, the Windows Photo Gallery window will appear and display thumbnails of the imported images.
If this doesn't work there is an updated driver available

Computer not recognizing my camera when connected

Most of the issues can be solved by either reinstalling the software or by disconnecting and reconnecting the device.
In this case we can close in on three solutions
1) The USB drive in the system is not functioning. Try connecting any other USB devices to the same USB port and check whether it works or not. If the other device works well then it could be a problem with the data cable or with the port in the camera (usually firewire)

2) The data cable used to transfer data might have become faulty.Try using another data cable if possible and still the same issue continues then try connecting another camera to the system and if the other camera gets detected then the problem must be with the camera.

3) Try connecting the same camera to another system and see whether the camera gets detected. If no, then the port in the camera is defective.

After this we can close in on which could be faulty. data cable / Computer / Camera.

Transferring pictures

Make sure you have the drivers installed for your camera. If the computer can't detect it, then thats the reason. You should be able to find the drivers on Nikon's website. Good luck.

Connecting the Canon Powershot A540 to a computer

First you should have a program installed in your computer to transfer your pictures, best is canon's.
Once the USB cable is connected you should turn your camera on, automatictly the program detects your camera and asks you to press the transfering button. Good Luck.
