Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera ?

Computer won't recognize my nikon coolpix 4600

\015 It won't register on either my desktop or my laptop, both PCs. I'm suspecting it's the USB adapter cord, but has anyone heard about problems with the software inside the camera that would cause this problem?\015

Answers :

You need to give some additional information. What OS are you using? USB, with all newer OS's is native and you shouldn't have to have any special drivers or software to get the camera detected by the computer. Simply plug it in and go to "My Computer" and it should be seen. If this is not the case, start with the physical connections first. Check the USB cable between the two. if a 2nd cable does the same thing, check a different device with the same cable and connection port on the computer. If the port works, and it recognizes another device, you have to look at the camera. If it doesn't recognize the 2nd device, look at the port on the computer. If ANOTHER port doesn't work, go into the Hardware device manager and ensure that USB ports have not been disabled. If it's the camera, chances are the port has died. If this is the case and you don't want to trade the camera in, try getting a $30 card reader and place the data card into the reader to ensure that the card isn't the issue. The reader will ensure that you can transfer the images and will also save some wear and tear on your camera.

Camera: Nikon Coolpix E4600 Have tried to transfer images from my Coolpix camera to my computer. Once connected to USB cord, the camera is recognized by the computer except the file transfering programs (Nikon Transfer and PictureProject) don't recognize any files to transfer. Is it a problem with the cord itself? I've put the memory card which has the pictures into my laptop and transfered them successfully that way, which is why it leads me to believe the cord is the issue.
