Re: my nikon camera

If the software is loaded in the computer - take it out. Make sure you have the camers set to upload. Card is in Battery in good contition. Plug camera in computer, Reboot the computer. Camera/Scanner Wizard should come up[on XP or 2000/Me only ] if you have 98 or Vista then there is a USB driver potential problem.

USB will not recognize Nikon D40 Digital Camera

You asked about the USB connection between your camera and the computer. First, be sure you are using an approved USB cord that came with your camera. Nikon gets a little finicky if you use an off brand. Next, be sure your USB outlet is working on your computer. Plug something else into it to be sure it's functional. Next, reboot your computer and shut off your camera. After reboot turn your camera on to see if the computer now recognizes your camera.

It would help to know what software you're using for the post processing. Some software has an option to disallow uploading of duplicate photos. This could be the case if you've already uploaded these same images previously. You might want to check for that.

My computer quit reading the card or the camera, so I can't get pictures from the camera onto my computer

Try removing theSD memory card from your camera and inserting the SD memory card into an USBmemory card reader then connect the USB card reader into the USB port of aworking computer. The computer will see this USB card reader and SD memory cardas an external storage device. You can open the camera photo folder and copythe photos to your computer.

Sometimes a certain usb port, for whatever strange reason, will not detect. Try a different usb port, and see if that helps. You might have a bad cord, so try a card reader if you have one. You might install the CD that came with the camera, if you have it.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Consider 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 Nikon Transfer or iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Nikon coolpix s210 will not connect to mac

I have a Intel Mac Powerbook running OS10.5.8
On a coolpix 100, the default setting is that the camera is charged by the computer through the USB cable. You need switch that OFF.
While the camera still does not show as usb device, you can access it through the Nikon transfer program AND through iPhoto

Nikon coolpi l18 is not being recognized by my computer

Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.

USB not recognized, no safe removal icon, wont switch off

I had the same problem. Nothing seemed to help, I even re-installed Nikon View. This helped, though. After you've connected the USB cable to both computer and camera, twist the camera end of the cable towards front of the camera. It seems like either the cable or the socket in the camera is damaged.
