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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I recovered lost photos with steps below
1. Take out the memory card from camera and connect the memory card to computer with a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer.
2. Download camera photo recovery software, recommended asoftech photo recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked)

Lost installation cd


You can easily download pics using a separate card reader. You don't need the camera or the missing cd. 69ce415.jpg

I am unable to upload my pictures to my computer. We recently had several viruses on our computer so a lot of things got cleared off in the process of fixing it. Now I cant upload my pics from my camera.


Reinstall the Nikon software and drivers. If those were removed in the de-virusing of your computer that will fix the problem. If not make sure the USB ports are installed and configured.

Lost the download into the computer!


If you can't download pix, best option is to buy a card reader (won't cost you much) and fix the memory card of the camera to the card reader. GThis way you can copy pix much easily as you would copy from a flash drive! Always keep your computer virus free! Viruses store themselves in cameras just as in memory cards and flash drives. When there are viruses, you might loose some of the functionality.
