Where to plug camera into on back of computer

I received a Nikon Coolpix. I have understood everything except where to plug the USB cable in on the back of my computer. Its a little flat square shape and I do not see a hole that this will fit in.

Why my Nikon Coolpix L26 isnt uploading to computer via usb to PC

When you connect the USB cable from the camera to the PC, the camera should shut down. If it doesn't perhaps your cable is defect. Or one of the connectors, from the camera or from the PC.
When the cable works on another PC (or Laptop) you can assume the cable is good. But then the USB connector in the PC could be not connected, or the USB controller in the PC is not working correct.
Sure you did install the Nikon software on the PC to?

Nikon Coolpix S52C camera transfer pictures problem.

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.

the same cable that came with the camera for USB is also the battery charger cable if you use usb. most of these cameras can be charged from computer or from the wall. so that little jack that your usb cable plugs into is also the charge port, just make sure you have rechargeable batteries in it.

I have a Nikon L19 Coolpix camera which I bought at Carrefour in Cartaya, Spain. When I came to download my photo's from the camera to the computer I found the cable supplied in the box with the camera,...

The USB cables supplied with digital cameras are almost all miniUSB to standard USB. The small connector on the cable fits into the camera, but it must be oriented a certain way. If you flip the small end the wrong direction, it won't fit. And sometimes the connection is tight. You can see on the small USB plug that it isn't perfectly symmetrical.

It will not let me put pictures on the computer and its not the cord because i tried a new one.

Nikon comes with a great deal of really good software for ALL Operating Systems. DO NOT have your camera attached and re install the software that came with your camera. You may also go to: and receive a download of the software related to your camera. After installed, turn your camera ON - Then plug the USB cable into the computer and then into the computer.

Key Things To Remember:
- Have Nikon Software Installed
- Turn Camera On and set for Automatic
Plug USB cable into Computer and then into camera

Enjoy Your Photos,

Nikon CoolPix S200 SHUTS OFF when usb plugged in

Did you install the drivers to the computer? And install the nikon software to your computer? If you didn't that is probably your problem. Otherwise you can get a cardreader and use it to get your photos on you computer.

Cant download pictures usb

Take your sd memory card out of your camera, and put it in your computer. A file with your pictures should appear. Copy thoes pictures into a different fold on you computer. Take you sd memory card out of your computer and plug it back into your camera. Your pictures will be both on your camera and on your computer.

I hope this solution helps. Please rate this solution.

USB not recognized, no safe removal icon, wont switch off

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.
