Question about Nikon D60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can't upload my pics from D60.

My computer isn't picking up the camera when I connect the USB. This is only the 2nd time I've tried to upload as I just got the camera recently. It worked beautifully the first time. Didn't do any damage to the camera or computer so don't know what happened.

    Thanks for you suggestion. Yea, I've tried that multiple times and it still didn't work. The camera is able to download on another computer that doesn't have the Nikon software installed so I'm wondering if there's something screwy with the software. I tried to uninstall Nikon Transfer and Nikon ViewMX and the computer claims that they're not there to be uninstalled.

    Thanks for your suggestions. The camera does show up in the "computer" window. But when I click on the icon, it opens up a window where there are no pictures in it. I think I will uninstall the software and reinstall it and see what happens.

Have you tried turning the camera off, then hooking up the cables, and then turning the camera on?

    Does the computer recognize the camera as a drive? It would show up in the "Computer" window as a camera if it did.



    If it shows up there it's a problem with the software. If you can't see the camera there, then it's something to do with the computer/operating system.



    I think there may be a couple settings on the D60 that can change the way it works with the computer. I'll check the manual and post another comment.

  • San Juan Vet Sep 29, 2009

    There's also a setting that will say "Mass Storage" or PTP. PTP is for use with the Nikon software that lets you control the camera remotely. You should select Mass Storage.



    If you've got that selected it really sounds like a software issue.



    I get around all this by just using a card reader.

Importing pictures


Try 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.

I have a Kodak M893-IS digital camera. Suddenly


You can try getting an SD card reader with a USB connection. The computer will treat this as another input. You should see a file folder with JPG files in it. This will be your pictures. Just do a "copy" to another file on your computer. Several companys make these card readers. 2 are Vargus and Lexar. I purchased one for my wife's camera the other day at Walmart. It was a "Targus High Speed SD/SDHC Card Reader/Writer". It was around $8.
