Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera ?

When I connect the USB to my computer it states the camera is busy or not connected. It's never done this before when I try to load my photos on the CPU. Any ideas as to why?

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.

For no apparent reason, my GE A835 camera failed to upload photos. I tried everything I could think off to fix the problem but get stonewalled by windows vista telling me that this camera doesn't exist on my system. The camera never came with an installation disc as it was a plug and play device. I tried to find an official GE website from where I could download the driver but, alas, no luck.

My new Canon G11, purchased in August,2010: 1) The camera cord (to load photos from camera to computer) is no longer interfacing, but the card works (I don't think it is the software as it malunctions on both office PC and home Macpro). Also noticed that sometimes when trying the cord, when I turn camere on, the lens comes out, which never happend when transferring photos via cord 2) I noticed shortly thereafter that the camer no longer "beeps" when the green in-focus boxes appear on hte view

It sounds to me like one or more of the wires in the cord has broken, or there is a problem with the USB port on the computer. Try swapping to the other ports to see if the problem goes away before going forward.If the problem is present ... Canon PowerShot G11 Digital Camera

During download of photos to my PC, the camera switches itself off and the download stops. This has never happened before. I have had the camera for 18 months and downloaded many photos from it. I have tried to download the 180 photos currently on the camera three times now, each time recharging the battery before I attempt to download. The first time I tried to download the 180 photos, 26 were downloaded. The second time, it was 36. Today it was 80 photos. But of course none of them are downl

We have a Canon SD1100 IS. We wanted to take a photo, but the screen is black. We took a photo anyway and tried to view it and it does not come on the screen, and the screen is still black. We tried the DISP button and that does not work in this case. Everything else seems to be ok. We can see the other photos we have taken.

My Fuji s2000 always shoots picture that are blured. I have tried many settings and different exposures however I keep getting the same result. What can I do ? The worst mode on this camera is the auto mode, I can never get a clear indoor picture. This camera takes beautiful pictures of flowers/nature and all outdoor photo's turn out beautiful it is the indoor photo's I have even tried the sports mode for when people move but I still get a very blured image

Found the same thing and I think the answer is the opposite of previous suggestions. The s2000 is truly awful at anything above about 400ASA The degree of pixel binning it uses just makes the pictures look terrible. Force the camera to use 400 or s ... Fuji FinePix S2000hd Digital Camera

When I view my photos I have already taken they look good until I try to zoom in, then the photos go fuzzy in multiple color stripes taking over the screen. Will my photos be fine when I load them to my computer? Is this my camera or my memory card. I put someone else's memory car in my camera and could zoom in and it was fine. I put mine back in my camera, took two pictures, and could zoom in on those photos and it was fine, but not on the previous pictures I have taken. I did plug my camera

Fuzzy pictures are most often caused by not holding the camera steady enough it's the number one problem with shooting "Live View". It's not the camera nor the memory card it's the person that's taking the picture. Sorry if that was to blunt. Now say ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

Blurry photos THe last few times I have attempted to use my camera I have had two problems. One, each time I turn it on it resets itself as if I have never used it and goes back to the language selection and and I have to reset the date (which I stopped doing because of the inconvenience every time I wanted to take a photo, so now all my photos say January 1, 2000). Also, every time I go to take a photo, the picture is blurry. I have tried to reset the quality, but it's not helping and, admitted

I previously thought I'd lost some photos as they seemed to disappear from my camera weeks and months ago. I download photos regularly. The lost photos have now shown up - am I right to assume that they are on the built in memory? When I try to down load the photos I can see on the playback none show up.

If they are on the internal memory, they will show up when there is no card in the camera. If you would like to keep these pics, there is a feature called "copy" in the menu which allows you to copy the internal memory to a memory card. ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 Digital Camera
