Nikon Coolpix driver for Win98

I'm running Windows 98, and I've tried searching for a driver that supports my OS, so I don't have to mooch off my friend's computer to upload photos. Is there one I can download to make my camera accessible through my computer? I've tried installing the driver from the Picture Project disk that came with the camera, and also this driver I found on Nikon's European site (it appears to not install anything at all, despite it's claims that Win98 is supported).

If I can't find anything, I may just have to give in and buy a USB flash reader for my SD card, but I'd REALLY like something else to work before I go buying something new to support it.

    I, too, want to be able to download the pics from my Nikon P50 using Windows 98SE. However, after downloading the exe file from some Euro web site as recommended, and then running setup.exe I got an error message saying "Failed to copy drive, Aborting installation".

    So that stopped that idea...

    This same file exists on the CD that came with the camera, however, the CD will not run on Windows 98SE. So I have not solved the problem.

Ugh. Nevermind. I knew as soon as I posted this, I'd figure it out! Since I've been seeing this same question floating around in search engines, might as well post it, I guess. Who knows, maybe save someone a headache.


- Install the Nikon drivers from the yellow disc labeled Picture Project:

Choose "custom installation", uncheck everything except the very top box labeled "driver." (Despite what Nikon's booklet says, Picture Project DOES NOT have to be installed to make the camera work). After they are installed, you will be prompted to restart your computer.

- After restart, hook the camera to the computer via the USB cable and turn the camera on. Windows will now detect a new device and launch the add new hardware wizard. Select "display a list of all drivers" and click next.

- Now check "show all hardware" at the bottom of the window, and select the category "hard disc controllers" from the left-hand menu.

- Scroll down this menu until you find "Nikon Corporation." Now in the right window you will see "Nikon Digital camera Controller." Click next.

- The drivers should install with no problems and no more work to do. Your camera is now compatible with Windows 98! If installed correctly, the window should look like this:


- If you go to My Computer, there will be a new icon labeled "Removable Disc." Click on it, and you'll notice all your photos are stored here in a folder labeled NIKON100.

Notes:

I'm not sure, but this setup should work for the following Nikon models listed on the official site as well:

COOLPIX 2000 / 2100 / 2200 / 2500 / 3100 / 3200 / 3500 / 3700 / 4100 / 4200 / 4300 / 4500 / 4600 / 4800 / 5000 / 5200 / 5400 / 5600 / 5700 / 5900 / 775 / 7600 / 7900 / 8400 / 8700 / 8800 / 885 / 995 / L1 / L101 / L2 / L3 / L4 / L5 / L6 /L10 / L11 / L12 / L14/ L15 / P1 / P2 / P3 / P4 / P50 / P5000 / P5100 / S1 / S2 / S3 / S4 / S5 / S6 / S7c / S9 / S10 / S50 / S50c / S51 / S51c /S200 / S500 / S510/ S700 /SQD1 / D1H / D1X / D100 / D2H / D2Hs / D2X / D2Xs / D200 / D40 / D40x / D50 / D70 / D70s / D80


If you don't have the Picture Project disc, you can download the same drivers from the European website (the link in the above post). The correct driver for the Coolpix is located in Drivers > Clpx > EN > Setup.exe (for English setup).

Before attaching the camera, be sure it's set to Mass Storage.
(Menu > Set Up > Interface> USB) There should be a V-shaped checkmark next to the Mass Storage option.

If you are using Win 98 then please make sure that you have USB mass storage device drivers installed or else your computer might not detect the camera thats connected to the USB drive. You can get the USB drivers from the following link:
