Arcsoft software for Nikon 5400 camera & monitor flickers

Got a new 160gig harddrive installed on my computer which has 256megs ram and uses Windows XP 2.
Since installing(by a so-called tech professional) my Nikon View disk loads but won't work and I get an error report.

Also, my HP w1907 DVI monitor flickers while scrolling and never did before with my 5.99 gig harddrive and the same web service.

Take the old drive out, copy what you have on it to the new drive beforehand, then remove it and you will have a working backup of your data in case something goes wrong. If you still using old drive as system boot partition you can use Norton Ghost for example to transfer the system, download a free trial from norton website and go from there. But best would be add at least 256mb more RAM as this speeds up your system and reinstall windows and all your software from scratch onto new hard drive, it will be more reliable and significantly faster.

What could be the reason that I can't import pictures from Nikon Coolpix 5400. When i started using a new computer (Windows 7) the problem appeared. I can't import any pictures from camera. There was no...


Hello and welcome to FixYa

The problem is probably related to the internal driver database of windows 7. Your camera probably doesn't have a generic driver to use.

Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.

This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.

Kind Regards

New computer w/windows 7. reinstalled nikon5400.


You can download the current versions of all (free) Nikon software from
http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61

You might want to consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Mecer wont load wi xp sp2 on 160gig hardrive


Hi,

The BIOS is seeing the drive but your computer can only see about 120-130 GB of harddrive. If the drive has a pin option to limit it's size you may be able to limit it then install windows but if it doesn't you're back to looking for a smaller drive.

Hope this helps

Can't download pictures on Windows XP


First do a windows update, see if you have all the current versions of software on your computer. Then install the nikon software on your computer. If that fails, I recommend using a card reader to download your photos to your computer. Card readers are quicker and don't use any battery power to download either.

Coolpix 4300 needs driver & update for vista


this solution was originally written by a fellow expert dauphine



You can download PictureProject software from this address: http://chsv-soft.nikon-image.com/jpn/software/win/S-P2____-175WU-JPNJP.exe

That is the only Nikon software that supports Vista since your camera is "outdated".

Here is a quote from Nikon site:


  • We had released a Windows Vista-compatible version of PictureProject, v1.7.5, for use with the models listed below, and all models that followed. PTP (models supporting the PTP protocol) and Mass storage USB transfer options can be used for camera connection. However, the camera's transfer button can not be used to transfer pictures over a PTP connection. Set the USB transfer option to Mass storage to enable the camera's transfer button.
    Currently, the new Nikon Transfer and View NX will replace Picture Project as our new Image Transfer and Browser applications. These applications support the same Nikon products as Picture Project.
COOLPIX P4, COOLPIX P3, COOLPIX P2, COOLPIX P1,COOLPIX S10, COOLPIX S9, COOLPIX S8, COOLPIX S7c, COOLPIX S7, COOLPIX S6, COOLPIX S5, COOLPIX S4, COOLPIX S3, COOLPIX S2, COOLPIX S1,COOLPIX L6, COOLPIX L5, COOLPIX L4, COOLPIX L3, COOLPIX L2, COOLPIX L1/L101,COOLPIX SQ, COOLPIX 8800, COOLPIX 8700, COOLPIX 8400, COOLPIX 7900, COOLPIX 7600,COOLPIX 5900, COOLPIX 5700, COOLPIX 5600, COOLPIX 5400, COOLPIX 5200, (COOLPIX 5100), COOLPIX 5000, COOLPIX 4800, (COOLPIX 4600), COOLPIX 4500, COOLPIX 4300, COOLPIX 4200, COOLPIX 4100, COOLPIX 3700, COOLPIX 3500, COOLPIX 3200, COOLPIX 3100, COOLPIX 2500, COOLPIX 2200, COOLPIX 2100, COOLPIX 2000,COOLPIX 995, COOLPIX 885, COOLPIX 775.We do not plan to offer compatibility for COOLPIX 990 OR COOLPIX 880 connection to a computer with Windows Vista preinstalled. Use a card reader or card slot to transfer images.

Monitor


td48: Have you tried pulling up the menu? Rotate the dial on the top of your camera to the setup tab while your camera is charged and tell me if you get anything on the display. if you do but the camera takes black pictures then you may be experiencing the same issue many others are and there is an official Nikon service bulletin.

Go to: http://www.fixya.com/support/t252094-black_screen_when_in_picture_mode
and check out solution #3. This will direct you to Nikon support should your issue be what is described in that thread.
