Question about Nikon Coolpix 5200 Digital Camera
I can't download pics from my nikon coolpix 5200 to my computer. how do i do it???
Dont turn the camera on. If you have a cable that came with the camera you need to plug it into your camera and also into your USB port on your computer. Then turn the camera on.
Press the windows key (flying windows picture on it) and also the E key and windows explorer will open.
It should be recognised as an extra drive (possibly E or F)
If you look at the new drive by clicking on it you will see a subfolder and in that folder will be your pictures.
Click on one once and press Ctrl+A to highlight all of them and then right click and choose copy. Go to a location on your C drive where you want to copy your pictures to and then right click on that area and choose paste. Voila.....
Check they are all there first in the new location before removing them from your camera.
However....if your camera came with a disk and the new drive E or F isnt there (ie the computer does not have the drivers for your camera) you may have to load the nikon software from the disk that came with your camera and then start again.
To remove your camera from the computer - dont forget to right click in the bottom right hand corner of your screen on the USB icon (a sideways green arrow) and choose disconnect/unplug/eject
If you dont do this you may corrupt the card in your camera for next time.
