When trying to transfer photos to my computer the camera can't get past 41 although there is more than 100 to transfer. Rebooted computer, unplugged transfer cord and plugged back in, rebooted again, turned camera on/off - what next to save my photos? Thanks!

Have you got space on your computer to save the pics? 41 is not a 'regular' number in computing... what make and model of PC? What operating system are you using?

Am trying to upload pics to my computer. Has worked in past but now nothing happens? Help?

Need more information. Cellphone? Camera? Model?

From the little info that you've given, it would appear that one of two things has happened:

1. You are doing it differently than you did in the past.

2. Something is damaged - connector on camera or computer or the cable between the two.

For example, it isn't immediately apparent on a Galaxy Note 5 how to transfer photos. If you use a cable not capable of supporting photo transfer, you can't do it. If you do use the correct cable, you then have to go to the menu to tell it that you intend to use the USB connection for photo transfer.

How to Transfer Pictures From Your Camera to Your Computer

There are a multiple ways to transfer photos from your camera to a computer. The best is to remove the memory card from your camera and insert it either in the SD card slot on your computer if it has one or into a USB SD card reader attached to your computer. Your computer (Mac or PC) will recognize the SC card as if it were any add on USB device such as an external hard drive. Go into "Finder" if you have an Apple or "Explorer" if you have a PC and you will find the device. Open the device/folder. In most cases there will be one or two sub-folders. Open the folders and look for files with the extension ".jpg". Those are your pictures. You can now create a folder on your desktop or another location and copy and paste or cut and paste your photos into that file. This method is preferred by professional photographers.

The second method is to download the pictures directly from your camera using a USB cable. Although I am not familiar with your particular camera, there should be a small connector in which you can plug in the USB cable that should have come with your camera. Plug the other end into a USB port on your computer. The computer will recognize your camera as a device; just as it did in the first method. Again you can copy and paste your photos from your camera to your computer in the same way as I previously explained.

The third method is to use a transfer program. Most, but not all, cameras come with one or there are many for sale. Adobe has that function in there Bridge and Lightroom software although you may consider it pricy. With the software installed you can either connect your camera to the computer with a USB cable or use an SD slot or card reader. The software will automatically download and display your pictures.

How to transfer photos from the computer to camera

Depends on the type of computer you have.
If your computer has a slot to introduce a memory card,
go to start, then computer and bring up the folder where
the desired photos you want to transfer are.
Copy the pictures.
At the "computer window," the memory card should appear.
Right click on it and choose paste.
I you meant to say HOW TO TRANSFER PHOTOS FROM THE CAMERA TO THE COMPUTER, insert the memory card into the computer; the computer should do it automatically, just follow instructions and choose a folder.
If the computer does not allow you to choose a folder, copy the memory card pictures and open a folder where you want to transfer the pictures, right click on the folder and choose paste.
I hope this info will help you.
Also, most newer cameras come with a USB cable, if you have it,
connect the cable to the camera and then the computer.
the pictures.

My camera id D5000. Once i connect it to nikon transfer, there will be a green light that keeps flashing on my camera. My nikon transfer does not sense my camera and i can't transfer my photos.

Try re-installing the Nikon transfer software on your computer. Have you also just tried using the computer's image software to transfer images (or just copy and paste from the camera to the desktop)?

Began with "low battery". Replaced with new ones. took 3 photos, again message "low battery. Replaced batteries again. Same thing. NOW, , AND BIGGEST PROBLEM CAN'T GET POWER . LENS WON'T RETRACT, POWER...

Hi there.
You may not like this solution, but it's real anyway. Average low-end digital camera life span is approximately 2 years depending on how much you use it. They vary between manufacturer. Low-end cameras ($100. to $200. range) have an approximate 1500 to 3000 shutter clicks which equates to about 1 cent per photo. Granted, more expensive cameras equal more shutter clicks and thusly and lower cost ratio. So, I'm sorry to say that you have just about hit the life span of your device. It would cost more to fix than to purchase a new one.
I hope this helps you, but no one here can suggest a "fix" for it. Thanks for coming to FixYa, and feel free to rate my solution.

Transferring photo from computer to memory stick

Many cameras will not let you write to the card. Try using a card reader, which will make the memory card appear to the computer as a separate hard drive.

Memory Card

If you transfer the photos to your computer from the camera, you should be able to save to another memory card. I can't say whether or not the photos on the new memory card will show up on your camera since there may be certain requirements to display on camera screen.
Plug your camera into the computer USB or insert old memory card. A box should pop up giving you the option to view files. Copy and Paste (or Drag) selected photos to a specified folder on your computer (Like My Pictures in My Documents). Insert new memory card. Copy and Paste (or Drag) selected photos to the drive for your memory card.
