Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera ?

Nikon Coolpix S3000 isn't seen by USB. I'm running Windows XP. I get the usual Windows ding-dong connect sound followed immediately by a triple dong-dong-dong but no message and no connection. I have loaded the Nikon software Nikon Transfer and ViewNX but I cannot see the camera or its SD card with these or Windows file explorer.


Answers :

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer. 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.

I have a Coolpix L100, and have installed the Nikon Transfer software. I am using a USB cable (that came with the camera) to connect my PC (Windows XP) to the camera.
