I have to ask 1st, why are you connecting your camera direct? Is it to download your pictures? Anyway it should'nt matter. Did you download the Nikon Transfer and or ViewNX CD that the camera came with? If not, that may be the cause. Another thing is your computer operating system being Vist and or XP with or without SP2 and if Mac it should be 10.3.9, 10.4.11 or 10.5.2

D60 connected to my computer but win dows is not recognizing it


I can't give you specific step-by-step instructions without knowing what version of Windows you have, but it sounds like either Windows Plug-N-Play either does not know that your camera is connected or the correct driver program for your camera is not installed in Windows. Go to Nikon's website and download and install the latest drivers for the D60 and then go to the Windows Control Panel and using the Installation program to install the drivers. There should be instructions on the Nikon website.

Nikon S5100 not getting detected in Windows XP Home Edition. Have installed latest version of View NX2 from Nikon site. Works well with Win 7.


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 any other photo cataloging program.

If you insist on using the USB connection, does Nikon Transfer recognize the camera?

Computer does not recoznise images file


.Nef is Nikon's RAW image identifier. See if there's an update for iPhoto at Mac website. Perhaps your camera (if it's new) is not yet set up to upload to iPhoto. You didn't indicate what camera you're using.

USB Device not Recognized


The camera should have come with software which includes the correct drivers. Did you install the drivers before connecting the camera? The camera simply may not be compatible with your OS.

Nikon D40 Memory Card Error


Hello. Make sure the write-protect switch on the SD card is in the UP (nearer to the contacts) position. Try the card in an SDHC capable reader on your computer first. Note that the SD card can only be inserted one way - make sure you're not putting it in upside-down! If the computer recognizes the presence of inserted card (whether it can read it or not), format it at FAT32. When finished, remove properly (icon in system tray) and insert into your D40 slot, WITH THE CAMERA OFF!! Turn on the D40, and if it now recognizes the SD card, FORMAT it again, in the camera. Good luck.
