    hi i have the S51c camera.when i plug the usb in and connect to the camera it opens the software window but doesnt transfer anything plus non of the functions work on the software window that opens up.The catalogue says that you require a mac os x (10.3.9 or 10.4.9 version) and mine is a 10.5.2 version.so is the problem because of the higher version?please help.plus the nikon site doesnt even show this model of the camera so couldnt get much help from their website.thanks

    I'm having this same problem with my Nikon Coolpix s51... This camera has worked fine for me on every other computer I have plugged it in to, but recently I downgraded operating systems (From Vista, to XP home, and now to XP Pro), and I when I plug in the camera it doesnt detect it as a hard drive. Usually I prefer to bypass installing all the bulky software that does the same thing that I can do with a Windows Explorer window and Photoshop.. but for some reason this camera isnt even showing up on My Computer.

The best way to transfer 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). 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.

Make sure you have the drivers installed for your camera. If the computer can't detect it, then thats the reason. You should be able to find the drivers on Nikon's website. Good luck.

I have a card reader on standby for when the cord stops working. So far, I haven't needed it.

SOURCE: camera will not transfer images to computer. Maybe something wro

Just getting a car reader will be much easier than trying to take the Coolpix apart and repairing. Also your USB cord could be damaged.

SOURCE: coolpix s220 won't transfer pics via usb cable

If you can get the pics using a card reader, why are you insisting on using the camera and USB cord? Pros always use a card reader.

I have a Nikon Coolpix s51 but my screen is cracked. I am trying to transfer the photos from my memory card and camera to my computer, but i am having trouble figuring out how to do that???


At this point, I would remove the card from the camera. If you don't already have a card reader, invest in one. Connect the card reader to the computer, then plug the card into the reader. You can use Nikon Transfer ( http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61 ) or the operating system's drag&drop to transfer the pictures to your computer.

If you have pictures stored in the camera's internal memory and the screen is at least partially legible, you can try to select "Copy" from the Setup menu to transfer pictures from the internal memory to the memory card before you follow the suggestions in the first paragraph.

I have a nikon coolpix L20 and HP memory card.


hey you can put your photos from your camera to your computer and view it directly but if you want to do the vice versa(i.e computer to camera) if you just like that copy the photos from your computer and paste them in your device's memeory then you cannot view them . instead you have to install the picture package transfer from your installation cd(may be a different name for nikon software) and then connect your camera via usb. open the software you installed then you should transfer the photos to camera from computer via the software only. this happens because your camera is an embedded system and its not a computer.for your information hp and nikon have nothing to do with this issue..

Transfer pictures from my Nikon, Coolpix S51


Hi!

Try to plug into a different USB port. If that does not help then go to Control panel->systems-> hardware tab-> device manager->and now try to see if your Camera appears under the options listed (would be under Scanners and Camera, Click on every + sign to see)

Do rate the solution.
Thanks

CANT TRANSFERRENG PICTURES COMPUTER TO CAMERA


The Nikon has software that allows you to transfer/copy photos to the computer.
There is an alternate method of transferring photos.
Get a USB memory card reader, remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into the USB card reader and then plug it into the computer's USB port. Thes computer will see the memory card as an external memory device, You can then copy the photos to your computer.
