    Mine has the same problem, although I've had the camera for a year now and didn't give me any problems until now.

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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

How to transfer images from computer to nikon coolpix


I don't understand why you would want to transfer pictures from the computer to the camera. Normally you transfer pictures from the camera to the computer. But, if you really want to restore pictures to your camera's memory, you can remove the SD memory card from your camera and transfer the pictures on any computer equipped with an SD card reader/writer. These devices are built into most Apple computers, many PC's and are available as USB accessories for all other computers. I have seen them for under $20. When you connect the device and insert your camera's SC card, your computer will recognize the card and treat it as if it were another hard drive. You will be able to read or write or drag and drop picture files just as you would with any other file on your computer. By the way; most professional photographers use this method to transfer there photos rather then transferring them using a USB cable from the camera.

Welcome to Fixya

Try the alternate way of transferring the pictures to your computer instead of using cable.

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. Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. Just drag&drop pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files.

If the camera software is opening and working on your new computer hard drive then the problem is the camera "firmware" being non compatible with the new system.

This can be solved by stepping around the camera as a download device by purchasing a memory card reader. This reader is plugged into a USB port on the computer and the memory card is plugged into it, the computer looks at this as a mass storage device. Your picture files can then be stored in folders on your hard drive.

Okay if the camera software is not working on the computer (which is now surprise) I would strongly suggest purchasing an Adobe Photoshop program. Elements, is a basic image program software and it will allow you to do everything and more than what your camera software was allowing you to do with the pictures. You will still need to purchase a card reader to get the pictures from the camera to the computer.

Nice part of going this route is that when you purchase a new camera the reader and programing can still be used.

As a Professional Photographer I'm using both Mac and PC, the image software I use on the PC is Elements, Elements 5 (it opens RAW files) and Photoshop 7. Each program has something a little different or in the case of the Elements programing 5 allows me to open Camera RAW files.

My Mac is a different story I still use Photoshop CS3, CS4 and several updated add on and plug ins. What I'm saying is purchasing a Photoshop program is the best step to image software a person can make.

Photoshop is the "industry" standard and the programing can be inexpensive on an entry level or go into the thousands for more advanced users. Cheers have a great time with you camera.

I have found lately that some of the new computer operating systems are not at all compatible with camera firmware. The camera software appears to work but as you are experiencing the transfer of files doesn't function. I'm surprised that it's actually restarting the computer, which makes me wonder if you have followed the correct transfer work flow. I'm not saying this camera but some, you need to have the camera off while installing the cable between the camera and computer and then push and hold the playback button for a long second before you get the transfer screen.

The work around all of this is to purchase a card reader, make sure it is capable of handling the SDHC memory card, I would also suggest that you purchase a Multiple port card reader so that in the future the reader can be used with different memory cards.

The Card Reader plugs into a USB port on the computer and the memory card installs in the reader port. The computer looks at this as an external hard drive (mass storage device) and you can download your picture files to a folder you create in My Documents (computer hard drive). These picture files can then be opened in the camera software.

Basically all you have done is step around the camera firmware and ended any conflict in programing. I don't know if you are PC or Mac but the problem I've found started when Windows introduced their new Windows 7.

Do you really need the software?

The best way to upload 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.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".

Downloading pictures.


Hi,
Are the photo's stored on a memory card?

If so then i suggest you purchase a card reader, take the card out of the camera and put it into the the card reader, plug that directly into your PC and transfer the photo's to your PC.

If you don't have them on a memory card but on the camera's internal memory, put in a memory card and transfer the photo's to that using the camera's menu. Then you can use the card reader to get your photo's on your PC.

Card readers are fairly inexpensive and can cost anything from $2 - $40 (£1 - £25-30) Please post back if you require anymore help or advice. Regards.

Is there a way to send pictures directly from the camera?


You cannot send pictures directly from the camera. The pictures have to be uploaded to your computer first. Your camera doesnt have a "built in" internet connection. The easy share button is for send pictures to your friends AFTER they are loaded onto your computer.

Picture Error!!


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

To your concern, a couple of things you can try:
  • use a memory card reader (instead of direct digicam);
  • use a file recovery software (either camera or card reader) such as GetDataBack.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Computer freezes up while trying to transfer images


Hi, The only reason your apps freezes is if it is having a hard time communicating with the camera and more often than not it is the memory of the camera that causes this. A couple of things you can try: 1. Rather than direct connection camera to PC, use a memory card reader. Remove the camera memory and use the reader to access/transfer the files; 2. It may be time to reformat the memory card itself which can be done by the PC through the card reader or the Format command in your camera; 3. retrieve files from the camera memory using a file recovery program such as "GetDataBack for FAT" and after all pictures/data/files have been recovered, do 2 above; 4. Try a different memory card (not necessarily same capacity) to check whether it is the memory or the camera itself; and/or 5. Reset you camera (powering off and removing the battery). Good luck and kind regards.
