Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera ?

Usb port not reading my nikon coolpix L18 card,..lost disk


Answers :

I am assuming you're using a cable to communicate between the camera and the computer... It would be good if you gave some additional details about your situation. Try this- change the cable to a different USB port. If that doesn't work, try taking the same cable and camera and go to a different machine and see if they are detected. If they are, go back to the first computer and check the Device Manager and ensure that there's not an issue with the Universal Serial Bus configuration. If you don't find any issues here, you have to suspect the computer's port is bad. Try a different port, if you haven't already. You also don't need the disc to have the computer detect the camera- windows machines do this out of the box. Once detected, simply go to "My Computer" (or "Computer" on Vista) and look under "removable discs" and you should see your camera listed, if it's being detected. Double-click on the camera and you should find a folder that will contain all of your images. Simply select all of them, then copy and paste onto your hard drive in your perferred directory.
