Question about Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera

Coolpix s220 won't transfer pics via usb cable

S220 connected to pc via usb cable. Nikon transfer software
will now not work (worked earlier). Downloaded current software
but no luck. Win XP recognizes camera (generic driver), but
cannot get pics on SD card with Nikon sw or XP's built in pic viewer.
SD card is fine as I can get all pics using an SD card reader.
Have tried disabling recently-installed programs due to possible conflicts but still
cannot get pics using USB cable. Help, please? Thanks.

    This is my recommendation as well. Customer, though, prefers USB transfer. Anyway, the software should work, even though this method drains the battery. Thanks for your response.

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 dont have a usb for nikon coolpix s210, without it how can i transfer the pics to my laptop


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer, whether you have a USB cable or not, 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 cataloging program such as Nikon Transfer or Picasa.

My nikon coolpix S220 wont charge. I had to buy another USB connector because my son lost his and it does not seem to recognize the camera at all and will not charge


The camera does not contain any charging circuitry and will not charge the battery when connected via the USB cable. In fact connecting via USB actually drains the battery faster because the camera has to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

The camera comes with a separate MH-63 charger. Take the battery out of the camera, put it into the charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet. Once the battery is charged, you can put it into the camera and try connecting it to the computer.

Better yet, don't connect it to the computer.

Alright..... I had this same problem and I finally figured it out. If your pictures are saved onto the card, then the USB cord will not detect them. If you want to transfer pics via the USB cable, make sure they are saved to your camera. You can copy photos from your card to camera vice versa under your menu settings.
Also, your card CANNOT be plugged into your camera or it will not see anything. I guess the card confuses the camera. Seems really stupid on Nikon's part.
Your camera only has a limited amount of memory, so if you will be limited on how many photos you can save to your camera.
Do this, and it will work.

Can I download pics from coolpix s220 to my computer without installing the CD. It is my neighbours camera given to her as a present and she doesn't have the CD. I run XP and have an Olypus Digital


Your camera software should be able to do the job. As most of the softwares are compatible with most of the cameras in use. Try connecting coolpix camera with the usb cable and see if it recognize the camera. If so then you can download otherwise you can download the software for coolpix from the support site of Nikon cameras

Is the camera recognised by the pc as a usb 'drive'.?? If not try another cable. If another cable does not help, then the fault could be with the camera itself.
Try inserting the card in a separate card reader attached to a pc - if you can see the latest pics taken, then the camera is taking pics ok - and we are back to the transfer problem.

If you can see the pics in your 'my computer' then you can copy or move them onto your pc's hard drive. The fault then could be your Nikon transfer program. Try reloading the software as it may be corrupted on your pc..
