    I have that same problem. I guess I will go get a card reader and see if that works.

Forget about the cables. The ends tend to be filmsy, and the connectors can be suspect also. Get yourself an SD single card reader. They are direct plug-in to any USB slot (no drivers or software required), and only cost about $15 US.

Why wont my nikon d3000 SLR download pictures to my computer ?


First of all, you upload pictures to your computer (you are putting pictures into the computer, not taking them out; downloading). Make sure that your computer's plug-n-play module recognizes that your camera is attached. Depending on if you have a Mac or PC, you may need to download and install a new driver for your computer from the Nikon website. I never connect a USB cable from my camera to the computer for uploads. Instead, I take the SD memory card out of the camera and insert it in the card reader on my iMac. If your computer does not have a built in card reader, many brands of external card readers are available at very low prices on line.

Usb device not recognised


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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa or Nikon Transfer.

Camera wont turn on My Nikon D40x wont turn on at all, i have been using it, then plugged it in the my laptop with the USB cable, unplugged it to take more pix, and it now wont turn on at all!!


Just a suggestion ... remove the lens, card and battery. Recharge the battery completely. Install the lens, card and battery then do a hard reset...

Hard Reset:
With D40 you need to install the lens, the card and the battery then open the cover under which USB and video sockets are. There is a small button in the hole. Press it with pencil tip or something and the camera will be reset losing all settings and clock time.

Computer cant find USB drivers for Nikon d40


I had the same problem with my D40x - I changed my USB cable to a much more robust one and all my problems went away.
You shouldn't need a driver, most OS's will recognise it as an imaging device.

Nikon d40x issues with memory card


Sounds like the locking mechanism for your memory card is broken or defective. The only people qualified to fix that would be Nikon.

If it is still under warranty, let them know the situation.

If not, it will be around $200 to fix.
