Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera ?

What could be the reason that I can't import pictures from Nikon Coolpix 5400. When i started using a new computer (Windows 7) the problem appeared. I can't import any pictures from camera. There was no problem when using Windows XP. Thank you in advance for your help:)

\012The problem is probably related to the internal driver database of windows 7. Your camera probably doesn't have a generic driver to use.

Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.

This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.

Dust Orbs I am having serious problems with "Dust Orbs" appearing in pictures. Mostly indoor pictures. These things are ruining my pictures. Are they caused by the Infrared Beam that the camera uses to focus? Or is something else wrong with my camera? Do ALL digital cameras have this problem with dust? Do DSLR have same problem? How come these dust orbs only appear with Digital Cameras, and not film? I need a digital camera that works indoors. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance....


Many digital cameras have this problem, though it has nothing to do with the camera being digital. It is small specks of dust in the air being illuminated. You will never see this problem without a flash.\015\012\015\012The reason you see it on digit ... Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera
