    I tried to transfer the pix onto another computer last night and it didn't work then either. She uses a Cannon camera, too.

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.

Nikon Coolpix S52C camera transfer pictures problem.


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

How do i transfer photos onto my computer using a connection cable


If you haven't installed the image software that came with the camera, the operating system should nevertheless recognize the camera once you connect it to the computer. Typically, the internal and/or removable memory cards in the camera will show up as a separate drive on the computer. To transfer the photos, simply drag and drop or cut/copy and paste the image files from the memory card's folder to your designated image folder on your computer.

Hope this helps!

How to get pictures off sony cyber shot onto computer using usb


When using Windows Operating System on the Computer, follow the steps given below:

Connect the Camera to the Computer using the supplied USB cable. The Computer will recognize the Camera as a removable drive and list in the Windows Explorer. Press the Windows logo on the keyboard along with the "E" key to open the windows explorer. If the Sony Camera is listed in the explorer as a removable drive then double click on it to open and navigate through the files and folders. Open the "DCIM" for images and "MP_Root" for videos. Once the images and videos are visible, right click on the desired file then select copy. Next, paste the selected file on the hard drive of the Computer.

If you want to select all the files at once then press "CTRL+A", to copy, "CTRL+C" and to paste, "CRTL+V".

Transferring photos in folders to picture project


have you tried to copy and paste them? If it works and you no longer want them in 'my pictures' then go back and delete them after they have been moved. I always back my photos up on cd or dvd before i move or change them just incase they get lost.

Transferring pictures from Computer to the camera


This is best done using a USB card reader.

You just drag & drop or copy & paste files, just like you would do moving files from folder to folder on a hard drive.

USB card readers also transfer your photos from your memory card to the computer MUCH faster than from the camera.

Hope this helps.

My c340 is unable to initialize photo transfer via usb once connected to the computer


Try 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.

Instead of using the software... Try uninstalling the software and use the Microsoft Scanner and Camera wizard to transfer photos/video to your computer. It should recognize everything on your camera, and then you can copy and paste the photos/videos into whatever folder you specify. In my experience, Kodak's EasyShare software was able to recognize .MOV movies. If your computer is slow, you might want to wait a while for all the processing to be done and check if the videos were recognizeD
