Trouble with Nikon Transfer D60

I have a new Nikon D60 and am having trouble transferring my first set of pictures from the camera to the computer. I successfully installed the software. I attached the usb cord to the computer and the camera, and when I turn it on Nikon Transfer launches. Then the device button for the camera displays for a second but then it disappears. Nothing shows on the source panel at all. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling.. nothing has worked. Any suggestions?

    I just got my D60 and loaded the appropriate software after taking several "trial" pictures. Nikon transfer comes up, the button that is supposed to appear does so for about 2 secs, then dissappears. Windows hardware see's the camera, but nothing else works to transfer the files. Does not show up as a mass storage device either. Pretty frustrating after spending this amount of money. I updated the Nikon Transfer to 1.2.0, still no go.

Try 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). 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 management program such as Picasa.

It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But as a solution I highly recommend that you instead consider a card reader to download your photos to your computer. They're very inexpensive, much faster downloading photos from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.

You place the camera's card in the reader, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For all of these reasons, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. Really, you'll save yourself a lot of heartache. Here are some examples from Amazon. Also, don't be fooled by the cost. some of the cheap ones work just fine. Go by the reviews. Also make sure you get a reader that is stated capable of reading your card (particularly if you have an SDHC card)::

For international readers, here's another source for card readers (free international shipping too :-)

SOURCE: I attach Nikon CoolPix S550

Some Macintosh computer systems support using a digital camera using SD/MMC card in two modes: 'Digital Camera' mode and 'Disk Drive' mode. At times, when try to use the camera using SD/MMC card in 'Digital Camera', it is not recognized by iPhoto or Image Capture. To solve such behavior, you might need to reformat the digital SD/MMC card and use backup to restore the lost files. But sometimes, you observe certain issues while restoring from backup or the backup is not available. To cope up with such situations, you should use Photo Recovery application to recover the lost files efficiently.
For an instance, consider that you perform following sequence of steps:

  • You connect your digital camera that uses SD/MMC card to a Macintosh computer in 'Disk Drive' mode
  • You switch to 'Digital Camera' mode and observe that the camera is no longer recognized by iPhoto or Image Capture
Similar behavior is also observed if you use FireWire or USB card reader to connect the SD/MMC card to your Macintosh computer and try to switch to 'Digital Camera' mode.
Solution
To prevent such errors from occurring, you should continue using the camera in 'Disk Drive' mode. You can then successfully access it through iPhoto or Image Capture. However, to solve the existing problem of the SD/MMC card, follow these steps:
  • Connect the camera in 'Disk Drive' mode or use FireWaire or USB card reader to access the card.
  • Backup all the files to your system
  • Use your digital camera to reformat the card.
Note: A digital camera using SD/MMC card uses different protocols in different modes so that to communicate with the Macintosh system. But it can only be accessed through Desktop, when connected in 'Disk Drive' mode.
After reformatting the SD/MMC card, sometimes you observe that backup is not valid and couldn't provide the required results. In such situations, you are suggested to use Digital Photo Recovery products to recover them. Photo Recovery utilities are competent tools to scan a logically crashed media using powerful scanning algorithms. Also, they provide interactive user interface that allows easy implementation

My camera id D5000. Once i connect it to nikon transfer, there will be a green light that keeps flashing on my camera. My nikon transfer does not sense my camera and i can't transfer my photos.


Try re-installing the Nikon transfer software on your computer. Have you also just tried using the computer's image software to transfer images (or just copy and paste from the camera to the desktop)?

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.

Light facial detail in my Nikon D60


Are you using the flash? If so, dial in some negative flash exposure compensation. Otherwise simply dial in some negative exposure compensation.

However, you will have to leave behind the Auto and the other point&shoot modes.
