Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to transfer 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). 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 management program such as Picasa.

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.

There exists a good, if not better alternative way to download your photos. Please don't take the following as a sales pitch as it's not, but please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

Pros avoid this problem by using a card reader and downloading to a folder they create on their desktop. From there, the pics can be imported to the program of your choice.

I'm trying to download pictures from my Nikon Coolpix. The camera has a fully charged battery and is plugged in via the USB port. However, when I launch the Nikon Transfer process, I cannot select any...


Is the camera recognised by the pc as a usb 'drive'.?? If not try another cable. If another cable does not help, then the fault could be with the camera itself.
Try inserting the card in a separate card reader attached to a pc - if you can see the latest pics taken, then the camera is taking pics ok - and we are back to the transfer problem.

If you can see the pics in your 'my computer' then you can copy or move them onto your pc's hard drive. The fault then could be your Nikon transfer program. Try reloading the software as it may be corrupted on your pc..

Transferring pics from camera to computer


If your connecting the camera via the usb cable you will need the drivers for the camera to be recognised by the pc. Do you have the disk that came with it? If not, try here and download the easy share software.

Try www.driverguide.com look up JVC miniDV USB. There are many drivers, you just need to try until you get one that works. USB will only transport over still pics, you need firewire for video transfer.

Cannot connect to PC


Wrote to GE about the problem. Win2000 is required. Looks like they aren't interested in getting a driver written for Win98.

However, they suggested I transfer the pics to an SD card and then use an SD card reader (cheap enough) to transfer the pics to my computer. IT WORKS but I would much rather transfer directly from the A830 camera to the Win98SE computer via the USB cable..
