Question about Nikon Coolpix L11 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Your Problem: Computer doesn't seem to know the card reader is there. So, I cannot transfer pictures to the computer. The computer uses Windows XP.

I have just purchased an SDHC USB card reader uo transfer an SD camera card. The computer doesn't seem to know it's there. As such, I cannot transfer the data (pictures) to the computer. My camera is a Nikon Coolpix L11. The computer uses Windows XP. Thank you for any help you can give. Raymond My workplace has a Nikon Coolpix L11 Digital camera that we use for inspections. I am the designated "tech" person who processes images. The camera has worked fine until today, but today, although I can see thumbnails in the camera from within the "my computer" menu, it is simply impossible to transfer images to the computer. If I use software rather than just copy/paste to try, I get messages stating that there is a problem with the device.

How to Transfer Pictures from Camera to Computer Without Software

How to Transfer Pictures from Camera to Computer Without Software

169,866 views19 Editors Edited 7 weeks ago

Six Methods:

1.Direct Connect

2. USB Card Reader

3. Email

4. Use The Cloud

5. iCloud

6. Windows XP


1. Use a USB cable. Since most digital cameras today feature USB connectivity, this is a very way to go. It's not always effective, though, and depends on the unique combination of your camera, your computer, and the operating system.

2. Power off your camera. Whenever you connect and disconnect electronic devices, especially sensitive ones such as digital cameras, it's best to turn them off first.

  • Connect one end (usually the mini-plug end) into your camera.
Connect the other end (usually the flat-plug end) into your computer's USB port.

Power on your camera. Your camera should appear as a disk on your desktop.

Method 2 of 6: USB Card Reader

Get a SD card reader. These are simply small interface boxes that plug into your USB port. #Plug the card reader into your computer's USB port. It will either connect directly, or have a USB cable on the end.

Insert the SD card from your camera. The card will appear on your desktop as a disk.

Drag the image files from the card to the computer, and you're done

Method 3 of 6: Email

Take your pictures with your smart phone's camera. It may not be a Canon EOS 7D, but it's good enough for rock-n-roll.

Snap a picture. All great photography begins with pressing the shutter!

Create an new email document. Add the photo as an attachment, and as Steely Dan said, "send it off in a letter to yourself."

Method 4 of 6: Use The Cloud

Use your smart phone's camera. Some apps, such as Instagram, automatically upload pictures to a shared space, and are available for you-or anybody else-to download to your computer

Snap your pic using Instagram. Apply any filters desired.

Share it with the Instagram community, and email it to yourself while you're at it.

Method 5 of 6: iCloud

Sign up for iCloud. This may well be the simplest and fastest way to move your images from camera to computer. With iCloud, your iOS camera's photos are automatically uploaded to the cloud, and distributed to all your iCloud-enabled devices, be they Mac or PC.

Take your picture. When you get home, access your Photo Stream with iPhoto or Aperture, or any other device that recognizes Photo Stream.

Method 6 of 6: Windows XP

Connect your camera or memory card to your computer. This is a simple step. You can usually connect your camera directly to your computer or just take out your memory card and stick it into a card reader that is connected to your computer. The usual connection is via USB.

  • Your camera or memory card to your computer the Windows XP Camera Wizard window should come up when you connect. If it doesn't then you can bring it up separately by clicking on: Start -> Accessories -> Scanner and Camera Wizard.

Choose pictures. This next step allows you to choose which pictures you want to transfer. Also, the wizard allows you to rotate the pictures and also view picture details like the date when the picture was taken. This way you can determine how you will name your destination folder. Most of the times however, you would just move all the pictures into one folder on your computer without doing anything else...but if you want more information, the wizard gives your this ability

Choose destination. Now you have two fields you have to fill in.

  • The first one is entitled: Type a name for this group of pictures. The value that you enter here will be the final file name of each picture on your computer. For example: if you know that the pictures you're transferring were taken on June 21, 2012, and they were taken at Idora Park, set the group name to 070612-Idora-Park, and then each file will feature this name plus an index counter: 01,02, etc. This way you can also identify each picture by its name.

The second one is entitled: Choose a place to save this group of pictures. This is the place to specify your destination folder for these pictures. So you can click the browse button (the yellow folder) and choose the destination folder on your hard disk.

Wait for the transfer to end. Check your destination folder-all the pics should be there.

Windows 7 doesn't uploas images from Canon 20D

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 Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.

I cannot transfer pics to my computer windows 7

I have researched with your model and found that drivers are not available from the manufacturer. However, most of the Still cameras do not require driver or software to transfer images now a days.

Once you connect the Camera to the computer, you will get the Camera as a removable drive under My Computer. You can open the removable drive to see the pictures stored in the Camera/Memory Card.

If the Operating System installed in your Computer still needs a driver, you may use the Memory Card slot on the Computer to transfer the pictures. Please follow the steps to transfer pictures using Memory Card Reader in the Computer:

- Remove the Memory Card from the Camera.

- Insert it in the Memory Card slot in the Computer.

- Open the pop up window or find out the removable drive under My Computer.

- Copy the required files to a folder in the Computer.

Note : Most of the Notebooks comes with its own Memory Card Slot. If it does not, you may get one from the market without much spending.

Thanks for understanding.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Cannot transfer video and pictures to computer

Here are some ways to transfer data from camera to computer:-
Run the software that came with your camera. Pop the CD into your computer and go through the setup steps. The only way you'll be able to transfer is if you have the software installed. If you bought the camera used or, for one reason or another, just don't seem to have the CD, you can probably find a used or maybe even a new one on eBay. You might be able to find it somewhere else as well.
Connect the camera to the computer. Let's face it, the pictures aren't going to the computer if there is no cord to connect them. Most of the time, you'll hear a sound or something will pop-up if the camera is connected properly and working.
Sync the camera to the computer and transfer the pictures. With most camera software, as soon as you connect the camera to the computer and it recognizes it, something will pop up asking if you would like to sync the pictures to the computer. After that it's pretty self-explanatory. If nothing pops up or it never was supposed to pop up in the first place, open the camera program. Most likely you'll be able to find your way from there. If not, read your camera manual. It should tell you even more than this how-to.
Another option is to buy a Memory Card Reader. They will go by the name " 6 in One, 12 in one, USB Reader Writer or Flash Memory Card Reader Writer. They allow all memory sticks and cards to be recognized by your computer. On Windows XP, you just plug it in and find it as another drive on My Computer.

Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

Bought a second hand Pentax Optio m20 with no software and would like to download pictures to my computer.using a windows xp pro operating system.Any advice would be appreciated.Thanks John

When you hook the camera up to the usb port, windows should automatically detect it as a drive. Then you can transfer your pictures to a folder on your hard drive. Also, if you have a card reader, you can transfer pictures that way. You can order card readers on ebay or get them at Walmart or Radio Shack.

Downloading photos from computer to phillips 8ff2fpb photoframe

Your PhotoFrame does not have internal memory acording to the Phillips data sheet, therefore you need to load your pictures directly onto a memory card (one from your camera will proabably work.) If that isn't convenient, you can generally get a good price on a SD memory card which is supported by your PhotoFrame.

If you wnat to transfer pictures from your PC to the memory card and have a card reader, you can transfer the pictures in Windows Explorier from your PC to the memory card and then plug the card into your PhotoFrame. If you do not have a card reader, plug the memory card into the PhotoFrame and connect it to your PC using a USB cable (you may have to buy one as acording to the Phillips data sheet it is not supplied.) When the PhotoFrame is pluged in it will appear in Windows Explorier as a new hard drive, and you can copy your pictures to it.

I hope this helps,
