I had the same problem. Nothing seemed to help, I even re-installed Nikon View. This helped, though. After you've connected the USB cable to both computer and camera, twist the camera end of the cable towards front of the camera. It seems like either the cable or the socket in the camera is damaged.

    Update. Got a new USB cable a while back, connection has been working with no problems at all. Looks like the USB cable became faulty.

Nikon Coolpix S52C camera transfer pictures problem.


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

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.

I am not sure if I can help but what I would suggest is first of all disconnect the camera from the mac and then if you have iphoto go to preferences and make sure that iphoto is the application that is activated when the camera is plugged in. Then close the preferences. Now connect the camera to your mac. If you do not have iphoto you can use image capture which is in the applications folder. Hope this helps.

Coolpix L20 usb cable will not work


The cable itself might be to blame. You should hope so, since the alternative is not good news. These cables are pretty much standard and available in any Radio Shack or Best Buy.

If that doesn't work (and you can return the cable if that's the case), I would recommend getting a cheap card reader rather than using the camera and cable to import your photos. Your camera takes SD and SD-HC cards. To be safe, you should be sure to get a card reader that can accept SD-HC cards (not all of them can).

With a card reader, it's even easier and faster to import photos. You insert your memory card into the reader, which attaches via USB on your computer, and it shows up just like a disk drive. then drag and drop your photos where you want them.
