Having problems with your Nikon D40x Digital Camera ?

My camera says 'Connecting to PC' all the time when I turn it on even if it is not connected to PC. I think it has got confused as the last time I used the camera was to take photos off it and it may have run out of charge while connected to the PC. I cannot use the camera as it always has this 'Connecting to PC' message on it.


Answers :

Connect the camera to your PC. Turn it on. Wait till the PC 'acknowledges' the camera. Then disconnect it via 'remove USB-device safely'-function.

If this doesn't work. try resetting the camera with the reset button you'll find under the connections hatch.

Hi. I have some pictures on my camera memory card which I want to download, but when I connect the camera to my computer, it only displays one picture old picture which should have been deleted long ago and none of the pictures currently on the memory card. I have just run the anti-virus program when I connected the camera, but no threats were detected, although I previously downloaded pictures on the same computers which did indicate a threat or virus at the time.


Instead of connecting the camera to the computer, use a card reader to directly transfer the pictures from your camera's memory card. It is easier and the card reader is a cheap device. It will work just like a USB flash device. ... Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera

I tried the arcsoft installer as well as installing the is730 enu (an OS camera driver for Windows 98, 2000, and XP) and yet the camera is not being recognized by the PC.

I took several pictures this morning. Then I plugged the camera into the cradle and pressed USB port and connected the line from the cradle to the computer, an operation I have completed numerous times. This time nothing happened. No "import" showed up. I looked at help in iPhoto. It said to turn on the camera. I tried, but it would not turn on. I took it off the cradle and tried many times. No luck. Have I somehow accidentally locked the camera? Does it even have a lock feature?
