If the pictures were not taken by another L18 then your L18 most like will not display them.

Trying to transfer photos to computor, hit transfer and it comes up Failed to initialize pluto. Don't know what to do.


You didn't say what software you are using, but there are better ways to download your photos. The best way is to connect your SD flash memory card to the computer. If your computer has a SD card slot you are in luck. If not, you can buy a USB SD reader for under $20 on line or in any computer store.

To use it, remove the SD card from your camera and insert it in the reader. Your computer will automatically recognize the SD card as an external memory device; exactly as it does with an external hard drive. You can then open the SD card and access the folder with your pictures. All you need to do is copy and paste your photos from the SD card to a new folder on your computer. It's that simple. Almost all professional photographers use this method and do not transfer pictures from the camera with the SD card in the camera.

Help me import from nikon cool pix s210 to Wlndows Live Photo Gallery 2011....laptop not recognizing camera


The best way to transfer pictures from a camera with an SD memory card is to do it outside the camera. If your computer does not have an SD card reader built in, you can buy an external USB card reader for $20 or less on E-bay, Amazon, etc. Remove the memory card from the camera and insert it in the card reader. Your computer will treat the card reader and SD card just like it treats an external hard drive. Either drag-n-drop or copy and paste your pictures from the SD card file to a file on your hard drive. If after you have copied and backed up your files you want to reformat your SD card, replace it in the camera and format it in the camera, not in the computer. SD cards formatted in a computer will often not work in your camera because of slight differences in the formatting.

SD card not recognized



What happens when you tried to plug-in SD card to the computer?


Have you made any recent changes to the computer prior to the issue?


To make the SDHC be recognized by the computer, we need to ensure that the card reader works in Windows 7 first. Please check if the card reader is recognized properly by the computer and you have installed the driver for it.


Meanwhile, you can plug some other storage cards to the card reader and see how it works.


I would suggest you to refer the link below
A Secure Digital (SD) card may not be recognized on a Windows 7 based computer.

Uninstall all the Generic USB drivers and reinstall.


1. Open Device Manager.

2. In "Disk Drives" dropdown, uninstall the "Generic SD/MMC USB device" drive.

3. Restart computer.

4. Insert SDHC card.




Hope this helps.

If the "camera chip" you refer to is a removable SD Memory Card you need to put that into a SD Card Slot on your computer or use an USB Card Reader device. The computer will recognize the SD Card as a Disk Drive and you can use Windows Explorer to transfer the picture files to it.

Nikon D40 Memory Card Error


Hello. Make sure the write-protect switch on the SD card is in the UP (nearer to the contacts) position. Try the card in an SDHC capable reader on your computer first. Note that the SD card can only be inserted one way - make sure you're not putting it in upside-down! If the computer recognizes the presence of inserted card (whether it can read it or not), format it at FAT32. When finished, remove properly (icon in system tray) and insert into your D40 slot, WITH THE CAMERA OFF!! Turn on the D40, and if it now recognizes the SD card, FORMAT it again, in the camera. Good luck.
