Question about Nikon Coolpix L11 Digital Camera

3 Answers

Says camera is not connected to computer

Sequence of events that normally works: 1) Connect the COOL-STATION (with camera mounted and off) directly to the computer using the provided USB cable. 2) Turn the camera on. 3) PictureProject opens, and you are then able to transfer pictures. This is not happening. Now, when I turn the camera on, nothing happens. I tried opening PictureProject and clicking "transfer" to transfer pictures, but it tells me nothing is connected to do any transferring from. This has not happened before. I will mention that this is my first time using PictureProject on this computer. Normally, I use a different computer. PictureProject has been installed on both computers. What am I doing wrong? I'm having this same problem!  I was using NikonView with my previous Nikon, since I got this new camera PicturePoject has yet to work.  It has downloaded all the pictures already on my computer, but it won't get any of my camera!  I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and that has not helped. Any suggestions?  Please help?

    I'm having the same problem. Have had the camera since Christmas 2007. Never had a problem before this. Have always been able to transfer pics before.

I found this on another site. You have to set the camera itself to Mass Storage mode in order to work with Windows 2000. The steps are below. As soon as I did and plugged the camera back into the USB cable, Picture Project recognized the camera as connected, installed the mass storage driver for it and requested a restart of the PC. Able to access the memory card and download pictures.

On the camera itself, unplug the USB, turn it on and...

Press MENU....
Press ▲▼to choose SETUP...press OK...
Press ▲▼to choose INTERFACE...press OK...
Press ▲▼ to choose USB...press OK...
Press ▲▼to choose MASS STORAGE...press Ok..
Press MENU to exit...
Then plug it back into the USB cable.

Good Luck

Can I get the video off of my Sony Handycam DCR-40 without the docking station? It broke, so I want to know if I can connect it to the computer directly? I'm not willing to lose the video we've taken, so...


I bought my DCR-SR40 used (just camera) and I have the same problem. Downloaded the instruction manual from sony and discovered the only way to connect to a computer is through the

Hello,

The sequence you plug in the hard drive shouldn't matter. I would click Start -> Run and type:

eventvwr

Click okay. When the Event Viewer loads, click Application. Do you see any errors associated with the times you plug in the drive? Also, check the System events and look for the same thing.

If I were you, I would replace the cable connecting the computer to the external drive. If that doesn't work, I would get another external enclosure and transfer your drive to it.

Photo numbering


I have found a solution, albeit for MacOS X (v10.5)
1) Take a dummy picture. 2) Connect the camera to the Macintosh computer. 3) The camera is mounted as a "NO NAME" disk. 4) Open the subfolder "100NIKON" in the folder "DCIM" 5) Rename the "DSCN0001.JPG" picture to "DSCN5050.JPG" 6) Eject the camera disk. It is done! 7) Take your picture, and delete the dummy one.
As far as it goes, it seems to work for me. Number sequencing will start at "DSCN5050"

Try the follwoing steps, i m sure that it will start working bcoz i tried the same steps and my printer started working:

  1. Turn the power to the computer off.
  2. Press the power button to turn off the product.
  3. Wait 10 seconds.
  4. Restart the computer.
  5. Press the power button to turn the product back on.
  6. When the computer restarts, try the scan again.
  • If the issue is not resolved , try some other troubleshooting:
  • Connect USB cable directly to the computer and then restart the product and try to scan again
  • If the product still does not work , try some other steps:
  • Connect the USB cable to a USB hub or a docking station for a laptop. 1. Restart the computer and the product and try to scan again.
  • If the product doesnot works after connecting the USB cable directly to the computer , follow these steps:
      1. Reconnect the USB cable.
      2. Try the scan again.
        • If the product worked when the USB cable was connected directly to the computer, but does not work after reconnecting the USB cable in the original configuration, there might be a problem with the hub or docking station. Either leave the USB cable connected directly to the computer, or contact the manufacturer of the hub or docking station for troubleshooting.
      If the product does not work after connecting the USB cable directly to the computer , follow these steps.
      1. Replace the USB cable.
      2. Try the scan again.
        • If the product does not work with the new cable, continue to the next solution.
    Now, if this doesnot work, there is a conflicting USB device connected to the computer
    1. Disconnect all other USB devices from the computer except for the keyboard, the mouse, and the product.
    2. Try the scan again.
      • The issue would be resolved now and teh answer is that the computer might not have sufficient power supplied to the USB ports to detect multiple USB devices. HP recommends installing a USB powered hub to connect multiple USB devices.

USB device unknown


Make sure you are connecting directly to the computer's USB port, not through a hub. Try disconnecting other USB devices before plugging in the camera. Check the manufacturer's website for updaded drivers: if all else fails, a reinstall of the camera's drivers may be in order.

Says camera is not connected to computer


I'm assuming that you are using a Windows based machine? If so, try another computer. If the camera is recognized when you plug it in, you have a software / driver issue and it's not in the camera. Just plug the computer into any other computer and don't bother with the software.
