Hi there,

Digital cameras allow you to download the image you shoot straight to your computer and are specially designed for computer photography.

The following list outlines the various transfer methods

  • Memory card transfer: If your camera stores images on its internal Memory or Memory Card, just pop the Card out of your camera and insert it into your computer's Memory Card Reader. Then copy the images to your hard drive as you do regular data files on a floppy disk.
    in your case CompactFlash, type of removable storage media, can be used to conveniently transfer images directly from that media, provided you have a matching card reader or adapter.
  • Cable transfer: If you don't have the luxury of using transfer options, you're stuck with the "old-fashioned" method, which is to connect your computer and camera using the cable that came in your camera box.
    In your case, the connection is via a USB port, which makes the transfer process faster.

There are Three primary ways to do this...

1. use a (usualy supplied) data cable... normaly a USB cable... it connects to your computer/laptop , Use a Photo utility program to "find" the camera. You should be able to view the pics stored in the camera.

2. If the camera pics are stored on a sim card then simply put that card in a multi card reader... (very inexpensive to purchase and standard on some late model PC's) and in most cases you can pull the pics directly from the card.

3. Take the camera directly to walmart or walgreen's photo station and they usualy can pull the pics directly from it.


give me some more info and I maybe able to give detailed help...
mod# of camera and what model/make of your PC.

How to trasfer pictures from camera D60 Nikon to my lap top


Using the Camera

* 1 Attach the USB cable to the camera. Open the small, rubber door on the side of the camera body and plug the corresponding end of the USB cable into the slot on the camera.

* 2 Plug the USB end of the cable into the computer. Make sure the cable is securely attached to both the camera and the computer.

* 3 Turn the camera on. This will open software to download your images. You will be able to move the images from the camera to the computer and choose whether to remove the images from the card.

* 4 Select the option to download or transfer images. This will depend on what type of operating system you are running and may vary if you are running third-party image processing software, such as software that came with your camera.


Using a Card Reader

* 1 Turn the camera off and remove the memory card carefully.
* 2 Insert the card securely into the card reader slot.
* 3 If necessary, turn on the card reader. This will open the software to remove images from the card and place them onto your computer.
* 4 Select the option to download or transfer your images.

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 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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I took some pictures without the memory card in place. How can I transfer those pics onto my computer? I have the thing that connects from the camera to my lap top.


Use the supplied "thing," connect the camera to the computer, and transfer the pictures. You can use Nikon Transfer, or just drag&drop.
