Question about Nikon Coolpix P1 Digital Camera
I have had my Coolpix P1 since Dec. 1, 2006. I have been transfering pictures by connecting the camera to the computer with a USB cable. The PictureProject software automatically recognized the connection and would begin an instant transfer. As of two days ago, there is no longer an instant program that starts the transfer. When I click open the program and manually try to start the transfer, the message reads that there is no connection. Also, I just purchased a memory card (I've never used one before) and the camera says, "Warning: this card cannot be read". I think I have formatted the card according to the CoolPix manual. I live in Paris and my mother in law is coming for her first visit on Tuesday. I really need my camera to record her visit with the grandchildren. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it.

That doesn't work. I plug in an older camera and nothing happens at all. Autoplay doesn't start up. If you go to My Computer, the device does not show up. Therefore I can't get my pictures off my camera.

#1 Buy an SD USB card reader. Stick the SD card from the camera into Usb and the other side into the cpu. $10 ...problem solved.
#2 If camera isn't reading the card, u purchased an incompatible card most likely.

The thing to do here [and in general with every other camera as far as I am concerned] is to remove the supplied software. Put the disc back in the box and leave it there. Simply plug the camera in switch it on set it the the upload mode And Windows - bless it - will do the rest. Camera/Scanner wizard will come up and ask you what to do Just like that. Let Windows do the work.

I have a similar problem but Vista didn't recognize the camera...loading the drivers works...and Vista recognizes the camera now...but when going to upload it says no pictures on camera.
I have a Mitsuba Dv500 11 megapixel, my computer doesn't recognize the usb connection any more.....It Used to. I have a hub i plug the usb cable into.
My computer recognizes that the camera is connected when I go to safely remove hardware, but the camera doesn't show in My Computer or Explore so I don't know how to access the pictures on my camera. I have been connecting the camera to the computer using the USB cable for an entire year now and this is the first time that something like this has happened. I never used the camera software CD. I have always just plugged the camera into the USB port on my computer.
