Looks like someone has stuck something into the port, i dont know. now the usb wire wont plug into the port. you can see that some of the little copper ends are out of place. my question is can just the port be replaced?? i have already cut my teeth working on this camera replacing the battery door, so i have had it all apart several times. i would like to buy the port and replace it if possible. thanks, stan.

did you try to plug it into another port than the defective one?
sometimes windows loose the control of one port and by changing it recognizes again on new port....
you may also have hardware drivers problems, take a look at the hardware properties to see if there is not a small yellow triangle on some hardware, it can be the source of the problem, search for updated drivers and restart.
or go to nikon's site, search for last driver for your model, and install it, this must solve the 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.
Not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge batteries, especially if you're going through a hub. Try a different USB port if one is available. Otherwise, plug the supplied AC charger into a wall outlet and use that.
try going to my computer, then selecting under "devices with removable storage" the one that says coolpix, camara, something along those lines. mine says "nikon D40". double click on that (if it's there) and that should be it. mine doesnt autoplay either.
The cord usually has 2 parts on it, a small part (used to connect to the camera) and the larger part (used to connect to your computer).
What your looking for on your computer is called USB port, its rectangular. On your camera they usually have a plastic plug over it, read your manual and look where the port is. Usually its on the side or bottom of the camera.
When all is found connect them and plug it in your computer. It should take a couple seconds to a few minutes for your computer to recognize it. Then go to My Computer > New Drive (example F: (Nikon) or something simular)
=========== SD/HC card
You will need a SD or SDHC card, this is usally inserted by the side. This card is much more efficent then the usb cable and is much faster to use. And you will need a card reader, usually they are built in your computers now, or you can buy one, usually cost range from 10-20usd. Like the usb it will take a couple seconds/minute but its quick pop in and out unlike the usb.
as long as you have some kind of media software on your computer and the usb cable that connects to the camera and your computer, you should be able to just go to My Computer and open up the USB port and see your picutes in 'folder' form.
