Nikon View requires at least twice as much free space on the startup disk as the size of the CF Card being used to transfer images. For example, to transfer images from a 1GB card you will need at least 2GB free space for temporary storage while the images are transfered. The free space must be on the hard disk that the operating system is starting up from, even if the destination for the transfer is on a different drive.

Cannot transfer images from camera to computer using view nx2


Nikon split the functionality between two programs. ViewNX lets you catalog, view, and edit your images. Nikon Transfer is for transferring pictures from your camera. Current versions of Nikon software Nikon Knowledgebase

My camera id D5000. Once i connect it to nikon transfer, there will be a green light that keeps flashing on my camera. My nikon transfer does not sense my camera and i can't transfer my photos.


Try re-installing the Nikon transfer software on your computer. Have you also just tried using the computer's image software to transfer images (or just copy and paste from the camera to the desktop)?

I have 88GB free disk space. I am using CaptureEze97 and get the following error when capturing an image: Insufficient disk space to perform selected operation. Free disk space before continuing.


Glad to HELP YOU!

You get that error message because your CaptureEZE is building up some TEMPORARY FILES before it will depose the right files on your hard drive. That means it needs EXTRA ROOM on your HDD.
So get rid of some useless/not used files or applications.
Also perform a DISK DEFRAGMENTATION and a DISK CLEANING using the reources that Windows provides you.
Go START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > DISK TOOLS and first select
DISK CLEANUP and wait for the operation to be done;
then select DISK DEFRAGMENTER and let the operation to be performed.


GOOD LUCK!

I get "communication error" on the screen when in


PicturePerfect was retired years ago, replaced by Nikon Transfer and Nikon ViewNX. You can download the current versions of all (free) Nikon software from
http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13948

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.

Hi I have just been iven a nikon 3200 by my father minus the usb cable - I am trying to transfer pics from the onboard memory to my pc. I have now got the usb lead, have connected to the pc...


Hey charliedee,
The program that came with this camera to allow uploading of images to your computer is called Nikon View. Nikon does not provide a free version of this on their website, but you could probably find a free download of Nikon View by searching for it on the web. If all you want to do is transfer your images to your computer and you don't need all the other utilities that come with Nikon View I have provided a link to a download of Nikon Transfer that is free through Nikon, which should allow you to transfer your images to your computer. I hope this helps!

Can I transfer photos back to the card after editing the images?


Nikon complies with the industry standard DCF (Design Rule for Camera File Systems) format which governs the file structure of images on memory cards as well as file naming and other image properties. Due to the constraints of this file system, images that have been edited may not be able to be read by the camera when copied back to the card. The card can, however, be used to move images (or other files) just like any other removable disk. To do this connect the camera to the computer using the "MSC" USB mode (where supported) or use a third-party USB memory card reader. The camera's card will then appear like any other "Removable Device" and files can be copied to it. Nikon cannot offer additional assistance in transferring images back to the card or viewing edited images on the camera.

D70 USB setting issue


Users of Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Mac OS 9.x may experience problems trying to download images from the Nikon D70 using Nikon View. Initial shipments of the D70 have the USB option in the "Set up" menu set to PTP - Picture Transfer Protocol. PTP is only compatible for downloading images with Windows XP and Mac OS X. To solve this issue please set the USB menu option to Mass Storage and then connect the camera to the computer. The D70's card will then mount like a removable disk and Nikon View will be able to transfer images
