I would recommend you get the software from Nikon's website.

There should be full instructions there.

Nikon View will allow you to download, view, sort and do some limited editing on your pictures. I think it's a great program.

    ps, the software only supports windows 98 second edition. If you still have the first edition, you will have problems with any USB hardware as there are no drivers for many newer devices. I'd recommend looking for Windows 98SE if you have the first edition, or upgrading your computer to XP etc.

I have lost CD for Nikon Veiw for my Nikon Coolpix 2100 camera and wish to locate a free download. I think it was Veiw 6 but not sure. My laptop crash and now need to re-load everything.


Nikon View was retired years ago. Nikon Transfer handles the transfer portion of it, and Nikon ViewNX2 handles the viewing/cataloging portion. You can download the current versions of all (free) Nikon software at

I am trying to download pictures from my Nikon S8000 by either plugging the camera to my PC via USB or plugging the SD card into my PC, and I cannot! I can view the pictures in the camera, so I know they...


Must install the camera's driver on to your computer before plugging the usb cord into the PC.

I would as a rule install the camera's software from Nikon.com's support site if it did not install automatically.

http://www.nikonusa.com/Find-Your-Nikon/Product/Digital-Camera/26191/COOLPIX-S8000.html

It can sometimes be difficult to setup a digital camera on a new computer. Usually the process is simple: plug the camera in, allow the system to install the driver and begin using the system, however, sometimes things can go wrong. Following these steps can solve more than 90% of problems relating to USB connection issues. You must be thorough and follow it step-by-step.
  1. What CF Card is installed in the camera?
    A large number of problems are caused by incompatible CF Cards. In many cases these cards will work while shooting but can fail to properly download to the computer. You must be extra careful that the card is approved. Actually look up the card you are using in the manual to see if it on the list. Many retailers include "Unapproved" cards in their bundles, so just because a card came with the camera doesn't mean that it is "Approved".

    If in doubt, use the "Nikon Starter Card" for testing.

  2. Is the Camera in Mass Storage Mode?
    While PTP mode can be used if your camera and operating system (Mac OS X and Windows XP) supports it, for troubleshooting it may be useful to switch to MSC USB mode using the camera's setup menus.

  3. Are there images on the card that can be viewed on the camera in playback mode?
    Nikon View will not auto launch or give a transfer window with no images on the flash card. If you have covered the first three items you should now connect the camera to the rear USB port (not through a hub or front port) on the computer. On all Windows systems excluding Windows 98 Second Edition (SE) ("Plain" Windows 98 is not supported.) make sure the Nikon View CDROM has been removed from the system prior to connecting the camera.

  4. Does the LCD Display Screen go dark after being connected for 2 seconds?
    If you are not getting the "Found New Hardware" wizard then check the LCD display. If the display stays "on" and the camera seems to be in Shooting mode or Playback mode then you may have a bad cable, camera USB port or computer USB port. If this is the case, contact Nikon Support for more information or Click Here for more troubleshooting.

  5. Does "New Hardware Wizard" Start?
    If you connect the Camera and a "Found New Hardware" wizard comes up you should allow the system to auto search for the driver by simply clicking the "Next" button until it is finished. (Windows 98SE requires the Nikon View CD-ROM to be in the CD-drive at this point.) On Windows systems newer than Windows 98SE the camera should pick up and use the Microsoft Mass Storage driver.

  6. "Hardware Handshaking"
    You need to understand how hardware handshaking works. The hardware Handshake occurs when a USB device is connected to the USB port. The computer detects the USB device on the USB bus and asks: "What are you?" The Coolpix line of cameras should answer: "I am a Nikon Coolpix 5700 currently set to Mass storage mode."

    If the computer does not understand this message the most likely cause is an incompatibility with the USB chipset on the particular USB controller that the USB port is connected to. You can check your controller chipset on the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility list. First find your "USB Controller" (i.e. Intel 82801AA USB Host Controller) in your computer's "Device Manager" and then look it up on the above link. You can tell if the handshake failed if the camera is listed in Device Manager under “Unknown Devices” or “Other Devices”.

  7. Drivers
    The Mass Storage Driver set consists of two drivers. The first driver is the “Mass Storage Driver” ("Nikon Mass Storage" driver on Windows 98SE systems) and the second is the driver for the CF card in the camera. The CF Card driver should be listed under “Disk Drives” in Device Manager. Be sure both drivers are installed and showing up cleanly in Device Manager.

  8. Auto Launch
    If both drivers are installed "cleanly" in Device Manager (no question mark or exclamation point) then you do not have a camera or driver issue. If Nikon View does not “Auto Launch” or the Nikon View “Transfer Window” comes up but fails to transfer images then the you can usually resolve these problems with the following steps. Nikon View is not required to transfer images from Nikon Coolpix camera’s capable of running in Mass Storage Mode.

  9. If the drivers are clean but you are unable to transfer images
    Double click on “My Computer" and verify that a “Removable Disk” icon with a drive letter is listed. If the "Removable Disk" is not listed then there may be Network Drives mapped with drive letters that follow the last actual local drive listed. If this is the case Click Hereto learn how to change the drive letters to accommodate the Removable disk

  10. If the Removable disk does mount
    There are two simple ways of transferring images:
    a) You can click through the directories on the removable disk: i.e. "g:\DCIM\100Nikon" and copy the entire contents of this directory then paste into a local drive location such as "c:\My Documents\My Pictures."
    b) The second option would be to launch Nikon View and select the removable disk from the folder list on the left. With the removable disk expanded down to the "100Nikon" directory you can "select all" and drag the images to a local drive location listed on the left.

  11. Transfer starts but fails to transfer all pictures.
    If Nikon Transfer starts but fails at any point during the transfer then there may be some bad picture files or corrupted data on the flash card. This will sometimes occur if the card has been used in a card reader to move non-picture files between various computers.

    Note at which file number the transfer is failing and go through the mounted removable disk to delete that picture file. You can also copy all the picture files except the damaged files from the card. Always format the flash card in the camera after you have recovered the undamaged picture files to the computer.

Coolpix 4300 needs driver & update for vista


You can download PictureProject software from this address: http://chsv-soft.nikon-image.com/jpn/software/win/S-P2____-175WU-JPNJP.exe

That is the only Nikon software that supports Vista since your camera is "outdated".

Here is a quote from Nikon site:

  • We had released a Windows Vista-compatible version of PictureProject, v1.7.5, for use with the models listed below, and all models that followed. PTP (models supporting the PTP protocol) and Mass storage USB transfer options can be used for camera connection. However, the camera's transfer button can not be used to transfer pictures over a PTP connection. Set the USB transfer option to Mass storage to enable the camera's transfer button.
    Currently, the new Nikon Transfer and View NX will replace Picture Project as our new Image Transfer and Browser applications. These applications support the same Nikon products as Picture Project.
COOLPIX P4, COOLPIX P3, COOLPIX P2, COOLPIX P1,COOLPIX S10, COOLPIX S9, COOLPIX S8, COOLPIX S7c, COOLPIX S7, COOLPIX S6, COOLPIX S5, COOLPIX S4, COOLPIX S3, COOLPIX S2, COOLPIX S1,COOLPIX L6, COOLPIX L5, COOLPIX L4, COOLPIX L3, COOLPIX L2, COOLPIX L1/L101,COOLPIX SQ, COOLPIX 8800, COOLPIX 8700, COOLPIX 8400, COOLPIX 7900, COOLPIX 7600,COOLPIX 5900, COOLPIX 5700, COOLPIX 5600, COOLPIX 5400, COOLPIX 5200, (COOLPIX 5100), COOLPIX 5000, COOLPIX 4800, (COOLPIX 4600), COOLPIX 4500, COOLPIX 4300, COOLPIX 4200, COOLPIX 4100, COOLPIX 3700, COOLPIX 3500, COOLPIX 3200, COOLPIX 3100, COOLPIX 2500, COOLPIX 2200, COOLPIX 2100, COOLPIX 2000,COOLPIX 995, COOLPIX 885, COOLPIX 775.We do not plan to offer compatibility for COOLPIX 990 OR COOLPIX 880 connection to a computer with Windows Vista preinstalled. Use a card reader or card slot to transfer images.

Nikon Coolpix driver for Win98


Ugh. Nevermind. I knew as soon as I posted this, I'd figure it out! Since I've been seeing this same question floating around in search engines, might as well post it, I guess. Who knows, maybe save someone a headache.


- Install the Nikon drivers from the yellow disc labeled Picture Project:

Choose "custom installation", uncheck everything except the very top box labeled "driver." (Despite what Nikon's booklet says, Picture Project DOES NOT have to be installed to make the camera work). After they are installed, you will be prompted to restart your computer.

- After restart, hook the camera to the computer via the USB cable and turn the camera on. Windows will now detect a new device and launch the add new hardware wizard. Select "display a list of all drivers" and click next.

- Now check "show all hardware" at the bottom of the window, and select the category "hard disc controllers" from the left-hand menu.

5211513.jpg

- Scroll down this menu until you find "Nikon Corporation." Now in the right window you will see "Nikon Digital camera Controller." Click next.

fcc2ad9.jpg

- The drivers should install with no problems and no more work to do. Your camera is now compatible with Windows 98! If installed correctly, the window should look like this:

45603b8.jpg

- If you go to My Computer, there will be a new icon labeled "Removable Disc." Click on it, and you'll notice all your photos are stored here in a folder labeled NIKON100.

Notes:

I'm not sure, but this setup should work for the following Nikon models listed on the official site as well:

COOLPIX 2000 / 2100 / 2200 / 2500 / 3100 / 3200 / 3500 / 3700 / 4100 / 4200 / 4300 / 4500 / 4600 / 4800 / 5000 / 5200 / 5400 / 5600 / 5700 / 5900 / 775 / 7600 / 7900 / 8400 / 8700 / 8800 / 885 / 995 / L1 / L101 / L2 / L3 / L4 / L5 / L6 /L10 / L11 / L12 / L14/ L15 / P1 / P2 / P3 / P4 / P50 / P5000 / P5100 / S1 / S2 / S3 / S4 / S5 / S6 / S7c / S9 / S10 / S50 / S50c / S51 / S51c /S200 / S500 / S510/ S700 /SQD1 / D1H / D1X / D100 / D2H / D2Hs / D2X / D2Xs / D200 / D40 / D40x / D50 / D70 / D70s / D80


If you don't have the Picture Project disc, you can download the same drivers from the European website (the link in the above post). The correct driver for the Coolpix is located in Drivers > Clpx > EN > Setup.exe (for English setup).

Before attaching the camera, be sure it's set to Mass Storage.
(Menu > Set Up > Interface> USB) There should be a V-shaped checkmark next to the Mass Storage option.
