Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L4 Digital Camera ?

My computer is not bringing up the menu to import pictures. Device chimes in after connection is made, so I know that it is plugged in.



Answers :

What happens if you just bring up Nikon Transfer or whatever program you want to use to download your photos?

You might want to consider NOT connecting the camera to the 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.

My new Insignia Digital Photo Keychain won't load. I bought 2 of them, and both of them when I connect them they say ''connecting'' on the blue screen, but they never come up on my computer. My device driver says there is an error and it cannot upload the device driver. I don't know what to do to bring up this software if my computer won't recognize it when I connect it.

Whenever I plug the USB cable into my camera, the screen goes black. It does it even when the cable isn't plugged into the computer.

As far as I know, most cameras are made so that once it senses a USB cable (whether as being inserted physically or as a source of current), it reduces the camera to pretty much no more than a memory card reader.  It is my belief this is so you ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S650 Digital Camera

Why won't my camera let me upload my photos anymore? I've tried using a different cord, turning the camera on and off, and using a different program to upload them through. When I plug it in and turn it on normally it brings up a menu asking me how I want to upload them. Just the other day I went to plug it in and it didn't do anything. The computer recognizes it's there but it won't bring up the menu.
