No need to have any software if you use a card reader.
You can still use the editing and viewing software if you choose.

    Computer doesn't recognize camera or card in card holder. I was able to download photos with iPhoto but not able to copy from camera for archive or delete photos from card. Please advise. Thanks.

    Hello K-home:
    What I was saying is that if you get a card reader/writer, there is no need whatsoever to have any drivers or software to read the camera. You simply remove the card from the camera, put it in the card reader, and copy your files to the computer hard drive. Then you can edit as you choose to. You can use the software for editing which came with the camera, if you want to.
    I have fixed many digital cameras, and now there is no way I can put all that software and drivers on the computer, there is no need because I use a card reader for all of them to test, and so on. Even my with most treasured photos, I simply copy from the card reader when the card is inserted in it.
    This also will cause less wear on your camera as a result of having it to run every time you download files. A card reader will usually be detected as a mass storage device, and may not need any drivers to read and write files to and from the card in the drive, this depends on your operating system and the age of the computer and OS software.

Instaloacion cd


There should be no installation CD for a Nikon Coolpix s3000. If you connect it to a computer, the computer should see it as an external hard drive.

Photo viewing (and some editing) can be done through Nikon's free software.

ViewNX 2 from Nikon

After that, you will have to find editing software compatible with your computer.

Transfer pictures computer without memory card


Page 128 of the manual says:
Start the computer to which Nikon Transfer was installed.
So before you can transfer pictures to a computer you have to install software. If the software was not in the box with the camera, I'm sure you can get it for free with Nikon.
I use ViewNX2 from Nikon, and it was and still is free. You can transfer and manage the pictures on your PC. Just visit the Nikon website for the apropriate software to your camera.

Laptop running Windows7 previously mounted Nikon D70 (camera) as Mass Storage Device but, stopped recognising it. Camera sees laptop?


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 Windows Photo Gallery or Nikon Transfer.
