Having problems with your Nikon D40x Digital Camera ?

My computer (Win XP) doesn't recognize my nikon d40

\015 When I connect my camera to the computer, a ballon appears on the screen saying that there is an error with the new hardware\015

Answers :

I have to ask 1st, why are you connecting your camera direct? Is it to download your pictures? Anyway it should'nt matter. Did you download the Nikon Transfer and or ViewNX CD that the camera came with? If not, that may be the cause. Another thing is your computer operating system being Vist and or XP with or without SP2 and if Mac it should be 10.3.9, 10.4.11 or 10.5.2
Did you install the driver ?
\015\012
\015\012Okay remove the software via add and remove programs in the control panel,
\015\012
\015\012reboot,
\015\012
\015\012now load the software , do not connect the hardware e.g the camera yet once the software loaded plug in the 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.
