I could not find the manual for this model on the web, so I'm giving you my best guess.

I found some information that said you could transfer still images and Motion-JPEG video clips to your computer using the USB port.

In general you cannot transfer video to your computer using a USB. To transfer video from most camcorders you need a DV (Firewire, also called 1394) cable. You also need some software.

I'm thinking that when you have an SD card in your camcorder there's some way to tell it you wish to record Motion-JPEG clips to the card rather than full video to the tape. If you've created a standard recording I don't think you'll be able to transfer it with USB.

I believe Windows Movie Maker will let you connect to your camera using a DV cable. I used software called Scenalyzer. A full demo is available free of charge at www.scenalyzer.com. The demo will leave a "watermark" on your video. If you like the software you'll need to buy it in order to capture video without the watermark.

If you have any more questions, let me know.

Is your Micro USB cable a "B" or "A"?Micro USB "B" is for data/charging.
Micro USB "A" is for charging only and will not work for any kind of data transfer (pins not connected).
The connector will be labeled at the micro usb end.
When you plug the cable into your phone a popup will ask you if you want to connect to mass storage. Once you answer yes, you can connect to the phone just like a usb drive.

First, syncing is the transfer of data between computer software's that are designed to acquire and share with another entity. The sync function usually is embedded in the computer program. Once the computer recognizes compatible software that has several capabilities including transferring data, a USB connection capacity should be achievable. Usually devices that are designed for data transferability should be capable of acquiring a USB connection either as physical cables or wireless Bluetooth technology. The power to sync is contained in the software program. Once software that has sync capabilities is installed on the computer, any USB cable that is attached to an empty port would display a user message asking for further procedures. For example, USB connections on the computer that has media software's would display device recognizes link requiring data transfer. The solution lies in the software that is relied on for sync capabilities. Acquire Windows Media player, Real One player, or ITunes player as downloadable onto the computer to achieve compatibility.


Important Notes

USB ports are available on all computers as versatile connection links to devices that would require communications. The computers original systems are expected to recognize USB cable connection as manufacturers default. Usually, the computer is likely capable of upgrading several software programs that would least communicate with the USB. For example, the program suit installed has compatibility requirements to perform on the computer as an entity. Also, the program suit requires compatibility with USB connection for another device that would be connected to the computer. Attempt to install media transfer programs that are designed with sync features.

Alright..... I had this same problem and I finally figured it out. If your pictures are saved onto the card, then the USB cord will not detect them. If you want to transfer pics via the USB cable, make sure they are saved to your camera. You can copy photos from your card to camera vice versa under your menu settings.
Also, your card CANNOT be plugged into your camera or it will not see anything. I guess the card confuses the camera. Seems really stupid on Nikon's part.
Your camera only has a limited amount of memory, so if you will be limited on how many photos you can save to your camera.
Do this, and it will work.

My nokia 2680 did not detected by my pc althou it is connected with a usb data cable. what should i do to transfer my videos and photo's from my cellphone to my pc?


Sir/Maam,

Have you tried using other usb cable? or using other usb slot?

try using other cable or usb slot, it can be that the problem is in either one of them.

To transfer you files from phone to pc without using a cable, you can use the bluetooth technology. You can buy a bluetooth for your pc then send your files thru it.

Or if your files in the memory card, you can just buy a card reader then use if to get the files you wanter. The memory card will only act like a flashdisk.

Hope i helped you, thanks.

Download pictures via a USB cable to a pc.


All phones are different, but if you already have the usb cable, simple plug it in! If windows comes up with a "Searching for driver" window, then great! Let it finish and try accessing the USB device via the hard disk icon it creates in "my computer". Otherwise you may need to use the software that came with the USB cable.

How to transfer video from camcorder to PC


The camera has two interfaces, the firewire or ieee-1394 for transferring video to the computer and serial interface (RS232) to transfer picture from the memory card to the computer. If you do not want to use either interfaces, you can buy cheap memory card reader (less than $10) to transfer the image from the MMC card to the PC via USB. If you want to transfer the video to PC and does not want to use the fire wile link, then you have to buy a video capture device (cheapest is less than $30)and connect to the video-audio output. I would recommend to use the firewire if you are intending to transfer the video.

Connecting analong camcorder to computer


The only Analog camcorder that has a USB Connection for transferring pictures or video is the SC-L770. The SC-L770 can transfer video (live or recorded) and still photos through the USB connection. You can also transfer audio using the audio cable provided. After installing the driver and software, you can begin transferring data using the software provided. Connecting to a PC 1. Connect a USB cable to the USB port on the PC. 2. Connect the other end of the USB cable into the proper terminal on the camcorder. (USB jack) 3. Connect the audio cable to the Line input jack of the PC. If the PC has no Line input jack, connect the audio cable to the MIC input jack. In this case, however, a noise may be produced depending on the PC. Notes: * If you disconnect the USB cable from the PC or the camcorder while transferring, the data transmission will stop and the data may be damaged. * If you connect the USB cable to a PC via a USB HUB or simultaneously connect the USB cable along with other USB devices, the camcorder may not work properly. * In this case, remove the other USB devices from the PC and reconnect the camcorder. Some other Analog Camcorders have a snapshot mode which allows you to take a still photo with your camcorder. However, you cannot transfer these to a computer unless you purchase additional hardware such as a capture card. Some capture cards have analog a/v inputs which will allow you to use the a/v outputs on the camcorder to connect to your pc and transfer images and video. You can purchase a capture card at most computer and electronics stores. Samsung does not support capture cards.
