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.

Still nothin'!

Hey there
Let try this before you go to Rite Aid
this I took from the camera manual, so make sure you flow the steps
For Windows 98/me customers:
Please install camera drive before connecting.
1. Turn the camera and computer on, then connect the camera to the computer with the
included USB cable, and then slide the Function switch to ► (Playback Function). (I think this is very importent make sure you put the playback function)
2. “USB Mass Storage drive” appears on the computer screen.(if it doesn't pop up, go to "my computer" and look for "USB mass storage drive"

Hope will help more and let me know what's happening

Problem with transfering images onto my Windows 98

you might have to remove the driver in safe mode of windows 98.

then reinstall the drivers for the camera after removal.

also look in the control panel for add/remove program and look for your camera drivers

if they are there remove them, and reinstall the drivers.

also there are some computer where the usb port could be failing, try the camera on another computer, but i really would suggest a card reader for camera, since it take away the wear and tear of the camera by hooking it up and turning it on for transferring the files. i just use a card reader, and just used the camera to take pictures.

I'm having trouble downloading photos to my computer with the software that came with my camera. What can I do? Someone deleted my digimax master off of my computer,and i can't upload pictures now for...

No need for you to install any CD software because your camera
will be recognized automatically as a removable disk when your computer has the following Operating Systems.

For transferring pictures with OS (Windows 98/XP/Vista/2000/MAC 9.2-10.3 ):
- Turn off camera
- Plug USB cable to camera and PC
- Turn on camera
- Connect to computer or printer will come out on camera screen
- Select the desired one
- Press MENU/OK
- "New Hardware Found" will be seen on the right lower corner
- A window will pop out with various options
- Example: "Open to View Files", "Copt to a folder"...

* If nothing like those mentioned above happened,

Double check through Computer Devices with Removable storage:
- Look for DCIM folder in any of the Removable storage
- Select 100sscam folder inside DCIM folder
- Upon opening, all pictures will be viewed

Just try to make sure that you'll be using the USB cable supplied
in the package and your PC does have good working USB ports.

No pictures

Do you have a usb cable to hook to your camera and computer? That is the easiest way to download pictures. However, you might try going to my computer (after already having inserted the card) and see if the card shows up. If so, click it and then click move files. You will have to choose where to move to, I suggest My documents/my pictures. Also, have you installed the kodak software? If not, here's the website:

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.
