Re: Coolpix camera not recognized by Windows XP system

When a mass-storage class (MSC) Coolpix camera (Coolpix 775, 885, 995, 2000, 2500, 5000, 5700, D100) is connected to a Windows XP system the camera does not appear as a mounted drive if there are no free drive letters between physical drives and mapped networked drives. Remapping the first network drive and leaving a free drive letter solves this issue. For example: If the Floppy Drive is drive “A” the internal Hard Disk is “C” the CD-ROM is “D” and the mapped network drive is “E” the Coolpix camera will not mount. If the mapped network drive is moved to “H” the Coolpix will mount properly as drive “E”. To change the drive letter mapping: Find the mapped network drive in the "My Computer" Right Click the drive and choose "Disconnect" Use the "My Network Places" to find the share to be mapped (that was removed above) Right click the shared item and choose "Map Network Drive..." Choose a drive letter from the pop-up list, remember to leave at least one free letter after the last physical drive Click "Finish" the share will now be mapped to the new drive letter and the camera should mount As long as there is a free drive letter between the last physical drive and the first network drive the actual letters do not matter. For instance if there were more than one hard drive (or DVD, CD-R, etc). This issue has only been documented with Windows XP and MSC class cameras, cameras capabale of using PTP USB mode should be set to PTP to avoid this issue.

Windows XP will not recognize Cooxpix S710


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 Nikon Transfer or Picasa.

My Nikon Coolpix LP16 is not detected by Windows on either my PC or my son's laptop, but IS detected by our Mac laptop. I've tried different ports, different cables, reinstalled software, reset the camera...


Microsoft updates frequently make changes to the registry which cause our cameras to no longer be recognized. The simple solution is to start using a separate card reader.

Nikon Coolpix s210 drivers


if the support guy toldy to by a reader i'm sure it's because that was the only solution. more than like ly the driver is obsolete and no longer available. i'm sure that this is not what you wanted to hear but unfortunately when it comes to new electronics versus older computer. there is always 1 or 2 problems that can't be overcome the conventional way. in general terms windows is always updating security patchs or registry fixes and they don't always include alot of the drivers from prior hardware. card readers are not that expensive anymore and probably will save you money and frustration in the long run. hope this helps. please rate this solution and good luck.
