If you connect the camera to your PC via a USB lead (usually supplied with the camera) then Windows (XP, Vista, 7) should recognise it as an external flash drive and will assign the memory card a drive letter. You can then access the photos on that drive directly and copy them to any other drive.
Alternatively, you can remove the memory card from the camera and place it in a memory card reader (if you don't have a card reader they are available from camera and computer stores, or on-line).

How do I download pics from camera to laptop, there was no software in Coolpix L330 bundle?


Often, if you simply connect the camera to your computer by the appropriately connectored USB cable (the camera is likely to have a mini connector; there may be one with the camera) the computer will recognize the camera, and ask if you want to download pictures using the windows wizard that exists for the purpose. You may need to be connected to the internet if you want your computer to search the internet for installation/or appropriate software.

How do i rename pictures so that my computer won't think they are duplicates?


Rename the photos on the computer before you download the new photos.
OR
Create a new folder (say Photos1) in another area away from where the existing photos are located in your computer and move all the existing existing into the new Photo1 folder.
Then when you download the new photos from your camera then there will be no conflict or the need to rename the existing photos.
Later, you will need to create another folder and move the current photos into this folder before you download the next lot of photos from your camera.

I can't access anymore DCIM and MISC folders on my camera after deleting them using my laptop, is it possible to solve that problem?


If you can't access pictures anymore on your camera, how can you see your photos on your camera?
If you already have the pictures downloaded on your computer (which you should have done before starting to delete anything) then you should format the card in the camera. In general you shouldn't do any writing to the card on the computer, leaving it all to the camera.

I cannot transfer photos from camera to pc, connecting using usb cable. the computer indicates that the folder is empty when viewing folders from the removable disks. but photos does exists in the memory...


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.

HOW CAN I UPLOAD PICTURES FROM MY DIGITAL CAMARA WITHOUT A SOFTWARE DISC?


Hi Amimbue 1985,there are a few ways to upload pictures without using a software disc.

Option1 :

Transfer your photos to your computer with a use of a USB cable provided with your camera.

Connect the USB cable to your camera and computer. Your PC will recognize it as an external storage and you can copy your pictures from it.

How to copy pictures:
1. Go to my computer
2.Select the drive for your camera and go to the folder where all your pictures are
3.Ctrl + A (to select all pictures)
4.Create a folder for your pictures on your local drive (or you may also paste it on any existing folder)
5.Ctrl + V to paste pictures on folders

Once you have a local copy on your computer you may then upload on any web applications that you wish, such as facebook or flicker etc.


Option 2:
You may also use Google's software called Picasa, it's free for downloading.

Please visit this link for the application:
http://www.google.com/picasa/

How to download Picasa

1. Download Picasa by visiting:
http://www.google.com/picasa/
2. Click " download Picasa "
3. Click save file once prompted and save it on your desktop for easy viewing.
(if you are using firefox, wait for it to download and just double click on it to run the application once done)
4.Run the picasa application on your desktop to install the software.
5. It is recommended to restart your computer after installation.
6.Plug the USB cable from your camera and computer and picasa will automatically get your pictures from your camera.

(you may now have the option to upload your pictures )

I hope this helps.

Once you have download and installed the application, it will automatically get the pictures on your camera once plugged in. You may upload it directly to picasa or any web application of your choice.

Save a zoomed in picture


Save the picture to your computer.
Before you "edit" your picture, copy the picture to another folder (name the folder "backup" or something similar). Now you may edit the original picture (not the one in the backup folder).
Use the Picture Motion" software that came with the camera. The software will allow you to "crop" the picture...

Shows same pictures and can't import on laptop


Do you mean the computer won't download your pics because it thinks the pics already exist? You know that they're different pics but they have the same numbers as the ones already on your computer. Is that your situation? Obviously, your camera is starting the number sequence over each time it starts a new folder. Some cameras have a way to change that behavior in the setup menu...some don't. Try downloading your pics to a separate folder you create on your desktop. Then, open the folder and rename the duplicate pictures with names or extra numbers or letters to make them appear different to your computer.

Save folder not found


The save folder it is looking for probably doesn't exist. If you are using Canon CameraWindow DC, cancel out of the download popup by choosing "operate on images on camera". Then click on the button that looks like a folder with the word "set" below it. Click browse and select the folder you want your images saved to. (For example, "My Pictures".) Now click the button that has an arrow pointing from a camera to a computer. Your images should begin downloading to your computer without any error.
