Question about Nikon COOLPIX S200 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Coolpix stores pictures in separate folders

When I connect my camera to my computer, each picture appears in a separate file folder 'INV100', etc. I have to click on the folder, copy the image to my hard drive, change the name from DSC001 since they're all named that, then start the process over with each folder. It is a pain! How can I switch it back so all my images come up under DCIM listed as DSC001...DSC002, etc?

Try a camera reset. Go into the menu and scroll to "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions.

My querry is the opposite: how can I transfer pictures FROM my pc TO my camera.


Most cameras will not display pictures that have been edited in any way on a computer. Opening a photo and saving it without making any changes counts as editing.

If the picture is an unedited picture from the same camera, make sure it's in an appropriate folder inside the DCIM folder.

File Contains No Message


This is for you, if when you go to look at pictures on your camera that you have already taken, and a message appeares on the screen that says: file contains no message. This happened to me. Don't panic. This happens when you accidently cut your pictures from your sd card, and put them in another folder, so you can look at them. Follow these steps:
1. Delete the messages that say: file contains no message off your camera.
2. The pictures should be already on your computer.
3. Save your pictures to a blank CD.
4. Go to a store with the CD, and get your pictures developed.

I hope this helps.

I have a Nikon Coolpix L5 digital camera that has a memory card. I want to download my pics on a Dell computer which runs on Windows xp.. I need step by step instructions please ????


1. Get a cardreader. (they're cheap and faster than using your camera for downloading)2. Create a folder on your desktop.3. insert your memory card into the card reader and plug the USB end into a USB port on your computer.4. An Icon will either appear on your desktop or a "removable drive" will appear in "my computer".5. Double click on whichever appears to see your picture files.6. Click on CTRL A to highlight all of them.7. Drag and drop them into the file you created on your desktop.8. Use the "safely remove hardware" function (in the tray in the lower right of your screen) to remove the cardreader.9. Double-click on the folder and it will open with your picture files.

Hello,
The DCIM folder should not be hidden, but if it is, you can show hidden and system files if you go into the control panel and select folder options. Click on "Show hidden and system files.

When I plug my camera into the computer the photos will not transfer from the camera to the computer.


You can connect your camera directly to your computer or take out your memory card and stick it into a card reader that is connected to your computer. The usual connection is via USB.
  • Your camera/memory card to your computer the Windows XP Camera Wizard window should come up when you connect. If it doesn’t then you can bring it up separately by clicking on: Start -> Accessories -> Scanner and Camera Wizard.
  • Choose pictures. the wizard allows you to rotate the pictures and also view picture details like the date when the picture was taken. This way you can determine how you will name your destination folder. Most of the times however, you would just move all the pictures into one folder on your computer without doing anything else…but if you want more information, the wizard gives your this ability.
  • Choose destination. Now you have two fields you have to fill in.
    • The first one is entitled: Type a name for this group of pictures. The value that you enter here will be the final file name of each picture on your computer. For example: I know that the pictures I’m transferring were taken on June 21, 2007 and they were taken at Constitution Park. So, I’ll fill out 07-06-21-constitution-park and then each file will be name like this plus a counter, 01,02, etc. This way I can also identify each picture by its name. Remember: this is NOT the name of the destination folder.
    • The second one is entitled: Choose a place to save this group of pictures. This is the place to specify your destination folder for these pictures. So you can click the browse button (the yellow folder) and choose the destination folder on your hard disk.
  • Wait for the transfer to end. check the destination folder for the pictures.if the transfer didnt work ,then replace the usb cable.hope this helps pls do let me know if you need further help

    I am trying to download pics from my Nikon coolpx to my IMac but iphoto does not recognize the camera - what do I need to do?


    First, make sure that the Computer recognizes the Camera when connected to it using the USB cable.

    When the computer recognizes the connected camera then a "No name" drive appears on the Desktop of the computer.

    If the Computer is recognizing the Camera but iPhoto then follow the steps given below to transfer images from the Camera to the Computer:

    Double-click the "No name" removable drive on the Desktop to view and navigate through the folders and files on the Camera.

    You can see several folders, you may either navigate through each folder to locate the folder that contains the pictures or double click the "DCIM" folder to view all the images.
    Next, copy all the desired images then paste them on the Hard Drive of the Computer.

    You might be more successful if you provided a little more information. Is your computer a Windows PC or a MAC? Have you tried connecting the camera to the computer via the supplied USB cable? Assuming you're using a Windows machine, you can simply transfer the images using Windows file services, without needing to install any additional software. When you connect the camera to the computer via the USB cable, Windows recognizes the camera as a removable drive and assigns it a drive letter (e.g. drive G:). An icon for the "drive" appears in your MY COMPUTER window. (a) You double-click on the MY COMPUTER icon - (b) double-click on the drive ICON that represents your camera - (c) locate the folder where the image files are stored - (d) and simply drag the folder to your desktop (or wherever you want the images on your computer's hard drive). If you don't know what I'm talking about, then you need help with basic computer usage. If you're having a problem with the USB connection (e.g. the computer doesn't recognize the camera) then you should provide some more details about this problem.
