Consider NOT using the USB connection.

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 ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

How can I transfer music from a flash drive like leaf bridge to my iPad Air and then have that music stored in iCloud?


You can attach some flash drives to Apple's $29 iPad Camera Connection Kit. (If you have an iPad with a Lightning connector you'll additionally need Apple's $29 Lightning to USB Camera Adapter.) Let me underscore some. Some flash drives require more power than the iPad can provide and won't work.

For the second question, here's also a guide to help you back up iPad music to iCloud.
  1. Connect your iPad to a Wi-Fi network.
  2. In iOS 8 or later, tap Settings > iCloud > Backup. ...
  3. Make sure that iCloud Backup is turned on.
  4. Tap Back Up Now. ...
  5. Make sure the backup finished by tapping Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage, and then select your iPad.
If you have a new computer, you can also backup iPad music onto it.

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.

Sir i want to transfer my mobile of samsung c3303 photos into pc


Friend,

1. From the Menu go to Settings->Phone->USB Settings. Here select the phone as a Mass Storage Device. Connect via USB cable to the PC. It will appear as an additional drive in MY Computer. Copy all the photos from the phone and paste them on the PC.

2. If you have BT on the PC. Pair the phone with the PC via Bluetooth and select the photos and send to the phone from Options on the phone.

3. Copy all the photos to the memory card and then remove the card from the phone and after inserting it into the jacket/adapter insert it into the card reader on the PC. From My Computer copy and paste all the photos.

I took a picture without the memory card and the photos got stored on the camera. how do i print these for a coolpix p100?


A couple options:

1) Connect your camera USB connection to your computer/laptop and copy the required photos to your hard disk or other external storage device.

2) Alternatively, plug in a SD card in your camera and transfer the photos from your camera internal memory to your external 'plug-in' SD card via the camera menu option: if required, refer to your camera user manual on how to use this copy function.

Hope it helps.

I am the owner of a Pentax Optio and have just purchased a computer with Vista package. I can't transfer my 'photos onto the computer. Can you help?


The Best thing you could do is buy an SD Card reader, the SD card plugs into the card and the card (via USB) plugs directly into the computer.

The photos then come up as a USB drive.

Here is a link on Ebay to an SD Card reader http://cgi.ebay.com.au/USB-2-0-CARD-READER-WRITER-USB2-0-HUB-COMBO-SD-CF_W0QQitemZ320297230536QQihZ011QQcategoryZ43450QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
