    Have you considered NOT connecting the camera to the 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. Or you can use Nikon Transfer, or any other photo cataloging program.

    2. i said i use nikon transfer and when i give start the program display me " connection between camera and computer was diconnected"

    1. How could you have tried with a card reader if you don't have a card reader? What kind of problems?

    2. Nikon Transfer works just as well with a card reader as with a camera connected via USB. Have you tried it with a card reader, without a camera attached?

    Are you looking in all the folders inside the "DCIM" folder? What program(s) are you using that isn't showing you all your photos?

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".

You can download the current versions of Nikon software, including Nikon Transfer and Nikon ViewNX from http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61 . Nikon Transfer is used to transfer pics from the camera to the computer, either through the USB link or via a card reader. Nikon ViewNX can be used to catalog your pictures.
