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 any photo catalog/transfer program, such as Nikon Transfer.

If you want to continue using the camera as a card reader, you can order a new cable at

How to transfer photos from my coolpix L20 camera to my computer? Thanks..


There are two easy ways to transfer photos.
1) Connect via a USB cable. The cable came with your camera. If you lost it, you can buy a new one on line or from Nikon. The cable has a small plug that goes to the camera and a large end that plugs into a USB port on your computer. Once the cable is connected, turn on your camera and your computer will recognize your camera's memory card just like it recognizes an external hard drive or other device. If you go to Explorer on a PC or Finder if you have a Mac, you will see it as a device. Open the device and the folder(s) it contains then copy and paste or cut and paste the jpg files from that location to a folder on your hard drive.
2) Transfer your photos directly from your SD memory card to your computer using either your computer's SD card reader or a USB external SD card reader that you can purchase on line for $20 or less. Open the battery compartment door and you will see the end of the SD card. Remove the card from the camera by pushing it in (it is spring loaded) and releasing. It will pop out. Insert the card in your card reader and your computer will recognize the card as if it were a hard drive or similar. Follow the instructions that I gave you for transferring the files above. Both methods can be simplified if you use software such as Nikon's Transfer NX.

How do i get pics of phone 2 my computer? samsung


For Transferring the pictures from your phone you can do it in two ways
1. If you have bluetooth in your PC then you can transfer with that. 2. Second if you got the pictures on a memory card you can use a card reader to transfer it. 3. Third, if you have no memory card, then install your samsung pc suite software> Connect your phone with the data cable that came along with your phone>Select pc suite option on your phone> then Transfer via pc suite. 4.Fourth, if you have a memory card but the pics are on the phone memory then you can simply mark the pictures and move to memory card then transfer via memory card reader or connect a data cable select Mass storage from the option that comes on your phone screen, then browser through the photos on computer and copy > paste.

You can clear ALL pictures from the card by formatting it. In fact, the memory card should be formatted EVERY time you finish downloading pictures from it. This will prevent later problems.

To format the card in the L20, press the MENU button, select Setup (the wrench icon), then select "Format card" (the memory card icon).

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.
