    OMG! I have the SAME exact problem!! I've sent a complaint/question into the online Nikon support team, and I'm awaiting an answer. However, it's the day before Thanksgiving, and I don't think they're going to get back to me until AFTER Thanksgiving. What a load of good that does for me! I'm taking the battery out and seeing what happens...

Make sure you have set your USB connectin in the camera to MPT/PTP. Most of the problem is that the USB connection isn't set to MPT/PTP.

I had the exact same problem and fixed it by switching USB cables. As it turns out, I was using a USB cable that is designed for power only (not data). I didn't even know they made USB cables that couldn't transfer data...

Well, I fixed it!

I tried all the aforementioned solutions and nothing worked. I took out the battery, waited, put it back in, reset it, etc. etc. No response.

Then, I plugged it into the computer, left it on for about a half hour to an hour. When I came back, it was responding and working. Apparently, I had to leave it plugged to the computer long enough for the internal battery to discharge. Try it! It worked for me, and I thought my camera had gone completely haywire and I was ready to return it!

Try taking the battery out of the body. With battery out, turn power switch to "on". Turn it back off (battery still out). Wait 1/2 an hour, put battery back in and see what happens. I hope that solves it. If not, re-post your question and we'll investigate further.

I ve a samsung mobile sgh x 640... i ve some photos took from that mobile, i need them to transfer in system... But i ve even data cable too, how to connect them? do i need pc suite, if so where do i can...

Yes you need the PC Suite. you may be able to download it from any site you download form but it would be best to buy it. Check ebay there are tons of cell phone acessories, or the place you got your phone should be able to help you with it or have it or order it for you. Prob cheaper on ebay though

Cannot take pictures thru lcd screen on d40x DSLR

The D40x is not capable of Liveview - i.e. looking at the LCD to take a picture. You are mistaken.
If you want Liveview, you need to buy the D3 or D300 cameras. The D40x is an entry-level camera.
