    For a computer to recognize a device, software called 'drivers' must be installed. The drivers are specific to the device, and many new devices do not have drivers packaged with Windows. If you purchased the camera brand new, you should have received a CD-ROM with the drivers and other software on it. This disc will have to be loaded and run before the computer can recognize your camera. If you got the camera second hand, and did not receive the drivers disc, you should be able to download the drivers from the manufacturers web site. Even after the drivers have been installed, software called a 'browser' is still needed to be able to access the photographs. Paint Shop Pro is one program which can do that, and there are many others. However, this software may be hard to find for free. The manufacturers website usually will offer the original CD-ROM shipped with the camera for sale for a small fee, and this may be the best option to get everything that is needed to be be able to download and print your pictures.

Just getting a car reader will be much easier than trying to take the Coolpix apart and repairing. Also your USB cord could be damaged.

Why does the usb connection not reconized?


Have you tried 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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
As to why your USB connection isn't working, there are a lot of possibilities. You may not have the right driver. If you're going through a USB hub, you might try bypassing it and connecting directly. There could be something wrong with the cable. There could be something wrong with the computer's USB port. There could be something wrong with the camera's USB port.
The main reason camera manufacturers include a USB port on their cameras is not so you can use it to transfer photos. They put it there because other manufacturers put one on, and so the marketing department insists they do so as well.

I connected the cable and managed to transfer one picture from my Nikon S8100 to the computer. The computer tells me that there are no more pictures to transfer, but I cannot find them!!! Where should I...


When you connect your Nikon camera to your computer some program is automatically loading up and then transferring your pictures over. If you haven't deleted the picture from your camera then reconnect your camera back to your computer. Follow the same steps you did the first time but watch the screen carefully. When the program tells you it is copying the picture over it should have a window open to the directory that it is using for the transfer. You should be able to get to that directory in your computer to work with your picture.

If the program deleted the picture from your camera then just shoot another picture so that you have something to work with. Most programs use some kind of a naming convention when it is saving your pictures, Usually it is a name made up of the date you are transferring the picture on as well as a number. The program should open a window before the transfer is completed to allow you to use your own naming convention.

Transfer pictures from phone to computer. I have the correct USB cable


I found an easy step by step to do this.
  1. Connect the USB cable to the computer and the phone.
  2. In the phone: When you attach the USB cable to the phone, a USB connection window appears, Select File transfer.
  3. On the computer: Open My Computer and your phone will be visible as a removable disk.
  4. Double-click the removable disk.
  5. Here you will find specific folders (depending on your phone model) where your pictures are stored.
  6. Drag and drop or copy and paste the picture from this folder to a folder on your computer.
  7. Disconnect the phone from the USB cable.
The picture is now transferred to your computer.

Hope this helps

I have a belkin easy transfer cable. How do i transfer photo's


On the old computer, run Vista's "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" to write one large file onto the old computer. The "export" file will contain your pictures.

Copy, via the transfer-cable, that one file to the new computer.

Run the "import" function of the Windows 7 Files and Settings Transfer Wizard to read the copied file.
