Downloading pictures to my computer

When I plug the USB into my computer is says that there has been a malfunction and Windows does not recognize the camera.

  • Marcia Chumas Aug 02, 2007

    I took the camera to be fixed. It would cost about $200 to fix the USB connection. This for a camera that only costs about $100. I solved this problem by buying a $20 USB downloader. Thanks for trying to help.

Try NOT connecting yoru 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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNIZED

Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.
