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 any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

SOURCE: 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.

The software will not upload on my windows 7 home


If you mean "install" instead of upload, then try installing using windows XP compatible environment.
Right click on the installer program and select PROPERTIES
select the COMPATIBILITY tab
tick RUN THE PROGRAM ...
select WINDOWS XP (SERVICE PACK 3)
click OK

If you mean "download", then try a different browser, or the link may be a dead link.

If you are just downloading the photos and movies from the camera, you can simply (with the camera off) remove the SD card and place it into a card reader on your computer. Please follow the normal practice of "ejecting" the card before removing it from the reader, or the reader from your computer.

Windows7 usually use x64 bit system operation, drivers which run in windows XP or Vista can be uninstallable in Windows 7 because XP and Vista use x32 bit system operation (except certain series).
See your OS from Device Manager (Windows+PauseBreak > Device Manager), 32 bit or 64 bit. Then you can download the driver compatible with your OS from here :

Picture project not detecting camera since installed windows 7, how do we download pictures now. camera is being detected by pc so it doesnt appear to be a hardware issue, nikon resource center say they...


You could try the folowings:

1) Run your picture project program under XP SP 2 'compatibilty mode'.

2) Run the picture project program in XP mode if your computer and version of Windows 7 allows it (eg. Professional or Ultimate versions but your computer processor will need to support 'hardware virtualization).

3) Run the program in a Virtual machine with XP installed: I would use Sun VirtualBox which is free and does not need hardware virtualisation (unlike windows 7 'native' XP mode or VPC2007).

As you can see, you do have some options to overcome Windows 7 shortcomings! Hope it helps.

Software download


Highclass

You can download the drivers from http://support.creative.com

Also note if you are running Windows XP or higher you do not need the software to get the pictures off the camera (I have one my self and it works fine on my Windows XP and Windows 7 computers).

It is possible that the drive letter that the camera wants to use by default is assigned to another device. The links below will help you reassign a drive letter to the camera.
