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 ).

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.

Hello I took pictures on my camera but how do I download them to my computer.


Check the box the camera came with, and see if you can find a USB cable. If there is one, you can connect this to your computer and the camera, and the computer should pick up the camera for you to transfer the photos onto the PC (if there is software that came with the camera, you may be able to install this on the PC to make this process easier). If there is no cable/software included, you will need to get a card reader, and plug that into your computer, then take out the memory card from the camera and insert that into your card reader to transfer the photos onto the PC. Please make sure you know what kind of memory card you have, to get the right card reader for you to do this (the formats are usually SD (Secure Digital), CF (Compact Flash), on Memory Stick. Hope this helps!

Missing CD-ROM & cables for Curtis Digital Camera Model# DCD5159


Well it appears that Curtis has discontinued all support for this camera. You might be able to obtain a USB connector that fits the camera online. Most use the standard/micro USB connector. As far as drivers if Curtis does not have it on their site then they might be tough to find. If you are using Vista the it might recoqnize the camera and install drivers automatically. If the camera has removable memory card you could remove the card after taking the pictures and put in the SD port of the computer and transfer the pictures onto it.

Olympus SP550UZ photos saved on camera memory not card


In the Menu if you go to the option that says Setup and press ok there should be an option that says Backup. This should allow you to copy the images from the internal memory to your xD card.
