Try a few things before making a purchase:

1) Check other USB ports to plug into on the computer. Is anything registering as a camera on your desktop when you plug it in? If not, move to step 2.

2) Do you have any memory card ports on your computer? If you do, try taking the memory from the camera and putting the card in the correct slot. If you do not have a memory card reader, you can usually find one at your local electronics retailer. Fry's, here in Nevada/California, has one for $4.99 (I am going to purchase one myself as I do not have the ports on my desktop and hate having to plug in three different cables for different cameras). Search for usb memory card reader on Google or ask for one at the store.

If the images are internal on the camera, contact Nikon's technical support for further diagnosis (they can walk you through everything on the phone).

Transferring pictures onto my desktop


You don't need any software.


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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

I am trying to download photos to my pc. All plugged in the the Device Connected box ins blank. Any ideas - its driving me nuts!


OK, when I use my Kodak Easy share cameras on a fresh computer that hasn't downloaded Kodak pictures before I do the following:

Load Easyshare software onto the machine, and install it.

Then, I connect the camera to the computer.

Then, I open the Easyshare software and it may ask a few questions.

Next, I watch the computer (Windows 7) as it loads the proper driver for my camera.

Finally, I click on transfer pictures and I am set with my pictures.

The pictures should show up in the Start Menu's picture under Kodak Pictures.

You should be done.

Let me know how it works out with the Easyshare software downloaded to the computer before trying to load pictures on to the computer.
