Downloading pictures from Nikon Coolpix 4600

When I try to download pictures I get a message that there are no new pictures on my camera (but there are new pictures). When I unplug the camera from the USB port the only way to turn it off is to remove the batteries. This is a new problem. Last week I had not problems downloading pictures. I am using Windows VISTA.

    I have exactly the same problem. Also using Vista. But I have downloaded pictures before via the same download cable, the same software, and via Vista. Problem occurred today for the first time.

    Yup. Me too. Everything works fine on my laptop that runs Windows XP. I cannot download pictures off of my Coolpix L1 onto my other laptop running Vista.

Hi, Pity you aren't using Apple Mac OSX. All I can suggest is that you re-boot the camera whilst you are plugged into the USB. ie turn the camera off then on.  If that doesn't work then unplug the usb and reinsert. If all that doesn't work then use some other device such as a SD card reader that allows you to access the contents read by the computer.  The more I type the more I am suspect this is a Vista driver issue. So try to circumvent the camera being plugged and instead just use an adapter that allows your computer to read an SD card. These things are readily available at prices between $20 & $30 -  or possibly you might have one as part of your printer.

I have a new computer and I've lost the CD to install program to download pictures from my NIKON Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera. Is there a free download available?

You can download the current versions of all (free) Nikon software from

You might want to consider NOT connecting the camera to the 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. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Go to store and purchase a memor card reader/writer. It will allow you to put your memory card in it and download the pictures to the computer via the usb port. Make sure the reader/writer is made to accept your type of memory card.
