Question about Nikon Coolpix S1 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Says camera is not connected to computer

Sequence of events that normally works: 1) Connect the COOL-STATION (with camera mounted and off) directly to the computer using the provided USB cable. 2) Turn the camera on. 3) PictureProject opens, and you are then able to transfer pictures. This is not happening. Now, when I turn the camera on, nothing happens. I tried opening PictureProject and clicking "transfer" to transfer pictures, but it tells me nothing is connected to do any transferring from. This has not happened before. I will mention that this is my first time using PictureProject on this computer. Normally, I use a different computer. PictureProject has been installed on both computers. What am I doing wrong?

I had this same problem and got this response from Nikon. I was using Windows 2000 with a L11.

The Coolpix L11 has 2 communication languages it used to talk to the computer and only one of them works with Windows 2000. You will need to make sure that the USB setting is set to Mass Storage. You can get to this option by going to the Setup menu of the camera. Go to your Shooting Mode and press the Menu button. Highlight Setup Menu and press the OK button. Highlight Interface and press the OK button. Highlight USB and press the OK button. Highlight Mass Storage and press the OK button. Turn off the camera and plug it into the back of the computer and then turn it back on. At this point the computer should recognize the camera. If at this point it does not recognize the camera, make sure you have fully charged batteries and that you are using an approved memory card.

I'm assuming that you are using a Windows based machine? If so, try another computer. If the camera is recognized when you plug it in, you have a software / driver issue and it's not in the camera. Just plug the computer into any other computer and don't bother with the software.

    Try the follwoing steps, i m sure that it will start working bcoz i tried the same steps and my printer started working:

    1. Turn the power to the computer off.
    2. Press the power button to turn off the product.
    3. Wait 10 seconds.
    4. Restart the computer.
    5. Press the power button to turn the product back on.
    6. When the computer restarts, try the scan again.
    • If the issue is not resolved , try some other troubleshooting:
    • Connect USB cable directly to the computer and then restart the product and try to scan again
    • If the product still does not work , try some other steps:
    • Connect the USB cable to a USB hub or a docking station for a laptop. 1. Restart the computer and the product and try to scan again.
    • If the product doesnot works after connecting the USB cable directly to the computer , follow these steps:
        1. Reconnect the USB cable.
        2. Try the scan again.
          • If the product worked when the USB cable was connected directly to the computer, but does not work after reconnecting the USB cable in the original configuration, there might be a problem with the hub or docking station. Either leave the USB cable connected directly to the computer, or contact the manufacturer of the hub or docking station for troubleshooting.
        If the product does not work after connecting the USB cable directly to the computer , follow these steps.
        1. Replace the USB cable.
        2. Try the scan again.
          • If the product does not work with the new cable, continue to the next solution.
      Now, if this doesnot work, there is a conflicting USB device connected to the computer
      1. Disconnect all other USB devices from the computer except for the keyboard, the mouse, and the product.
      2. Try the scan again.
        • The issue would be resolved now and teh answer is that the computer might not have sufficient power supplied to the USB ports to detect multiple USB devices. HP recommends installing a USB powered hub to connect multiple USB devices.

    Downloading pictures onto computer


    There are Three primary ways to do this...

    1. use a (usualy supplied) data cable... normaly a USB cable... it connects to your computer/laptop , Use a Photo utility program to "find" the camera. You should be able to view the pics stored in the camera.

    2. If the camera pics are stored on a sim card then simply put that card in a multi card reader... (very inexpensive to purchase and standard on some late model PC's) and in most cases you can pull the pics directly from the card.

    3. Take the camera directly to walmart or walgreen's photo station and they usualy can pull the pics directly from it.


    give me some more info and I maybe able to give detailed help...
    mod# of camera and what model/make of your PC.

    USB device unknown


    Make sure you are connecting directly to the computer's USB port, not through a hub. Try disconnecting other USB devices before plugging in the camera. Check the manufacturer's website for updaded drivers: if all else fails, a reinstall of the camera's drivers may be in order.

    Says camera is not connected to computer


    I found this on another site. You have to set the camera itself to Mass Storage mode in order to work with Windows 2000. The steps are below. As soon as I did and plugged the camera back into the USB cable, Picture Project recognized the camera as connected, installed the mass storage driver for it and requested a restart of the PC. Able to access the memory card and download pictures.

    On the camera itself, unplug the USB, turn it on and...

    Press MENU....
    Press ▲▼to choose SETUP...press OK...
    Press ▲▼to choose INTERFACE...press OK...
    Press ▲▼ to choose USB...press OK...
    Press ▲▼to choose MASS STORAGE...press Ok..
    Press MENU to exit...
    Then plug it back into the USB cable.

    Good Luck
