There could be a number of problems so let's step through this. I will assume you are using XP for your operating system.

If you take the card out and use a card reader does the computer automatically recognize the card and show the contents?

If not it could be that the autorun feature on your computer has been disabled for security reasons (autorun is one of the ways viruses spread these days)

When the camera is plugged in and turned on and you go to My Computer does the camera show up as either a removable drive (just a letter it will not show as a camera) or does it show up under Scanners and Cameras? If so then autorun has been disabled and you will have to go to My Computer each time to transfer your files.

Test the USB port: Have you tried another USB device on the same port you are using for the camera and does it work?

Try a different USB cable.

That is about all I can offer without a great deal more info.

I used to be able to import pictures onto my laptop but now it does nothing when the usb is plugged into both


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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Nikon Coolpix L22. The computer wire will not work. when i plug it in and put the camera on, it doesnt show anything about the pictures being uploaded. Nothing uploads, nothing happens. The USB cord is...


The camera will need to be plugged in and turned on for you to be able to transfer pictures from it.
Plugging the camera in will not make anything special happen on its own-- if you are using Windows (after the camera is plugged in, turned on, and with your memory card still in the camera), try opening "My Computer" and looking for the camera's icon within that window. The camera (and the photos on the memory card inside) will be shown just as any other CD or jump drive that you would plug into your computer. You can copy photos off of the camera by double clicking the camera's icon, (probably opening the DCIM folder) and dragging and dropping the image files onto some other location on your computer.

Goto any radio shack and get a external memory card reader this will allow you to get your pictures if the camera or cable is defective.

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.
