I think it is one of these: 1. the cable is kaput or 2. the socket where the cable goes into the camera is damaged (most probable) or 3. the socket where the cable goes into the computer is damaged (easy to check)
You could try cleaning all connections with a cotton earbud.
I've had this problem before - I damaged the camera socket - I've learnt to be more gentle! To get around it I bought a card reader. This is a better option anyway, as the delicate electronics of your camera are not subject to powers surges that may occur while it's connected to your computer.
Hope this helps! H

My Nikon COOLPIX L3 USB cable to download pix to computer missing


You don't need a USB cable.


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.

It will not let me put pictures on the computer and its not the cord because i tried a new one.


Nikon comes with a great deal of really good software for ALL Operating Systems. DO NOT have your camera attached and re install the software that came with your camera. You may also go to: http://www.nikon.com and receive a download of the software related to your camera. After installed, turn your camera ON - Then plug the USB cable into the computer and then into the computer.

Key Things To Remember:
- Have Nikon Software Installed
- Turn Camera On and set for Automatic
Plug USB cable into Computer and then into camera

Enjoy Your Photos,
