Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera
Consider 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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Basic idea is to replace the infrared-cut filter in front of the CCD sensor with an infrared filter, so the camera only "sees" the light in/above near-infrared range (mostly invisible to human eye).
The operation on a d40 is a bit fiddly. You will of course need a replacement infrared filter. You can cut it yourself from a standard lens infrared filter (that's what I normally do). It might then need some positioning to get autofocus to work properly in case the replacement filter is not the same thickness as the original one.
I've actually just found this tutorial on the net, you might find it useful:
