Having problems with your Nikon D40x Digital Camera ?

SOFTWARE NOT WORKING

\015 I use Windows Vista Home Premium and Norton 360. My Nikon Software is not working. Everything loaded - I read the book - but when i connect the Nikon D40 camera, the Nikon Transfer opens - 120 photos on card - so I click "transfer" and nothing happens - occasionally the ViewNX program opens but promptly stops working. Both the Nikon Transfer and the ViewNX programs say there are updates but when I try to load the updates they start loading but then stop. The only message is that the download was unsuccessful and I should try later! I like the camera (my first SLR) but if i can't load the photos, it is useless. Can you help please?\015

Answers :

You may know this already, but you don't need the camera to upload photos. I have used Nikon Digital SLRs for several years and have never uploaded from the camera. You should be able to do so, but in the mean time, remove the SD card and use a SD card reader. If your PC doesnt have a built in SD reader, get a USB version like the SanDisk MicroMate or get SD with a built-in USB plug(see attached photos for both. When connected to your PC, either will show up as a removeable drive on your PC from which you can copy the files onto your PC's harddrive: save the photos, back them up, then use the camera to format the SD card--this is the best way to clear/erase the card. Then try opening the photos with the Nikon software or photoshop or if they are jpegs, windows will view them. Using the camera to upload photos, in my opinion, should only be done when you do not have a way to read the SD card. This can be the begining of a productive workflow and part of the process for organizing and backing up photographs. You should also watch the Nikon website for software updates to fix bugs: http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61 You should also check for firmware updates for your camera(1.11 is the latest for the D40 and no updates yet on the D40x): http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13783

Polaroid digital camera i832 was working fine through USB cable. Received an Ipod shuffle for Mother's day, downloaded the software, loaded my Ipod and now my camera doesn't work. I'm think it's the Itunes software, because that's the only new thing that's been downloaded and the camera worked previously to that. The removable disk drive (F:) recognizes it, but wants me to "format disk". Under the device manager, disk drivers, there is a Maxtor 6Y080L0 listed and my camera. I don't think the Max

Have Nikon Coolpix 885 dig. camera, bought in 2000, still works OK. I had been transferring the photos to my old computer using "Nikon View" 5 version 5.0.0 software that came with the camera and my Windows XP operating system with no problems. I now have a new computer using Windows 7. This is my question: Will it be OK to install the original "Nikon View" 5 disk with Windows 7 or is there a newer "Nikon View" software to work with Windows 7 and my old Coolpix 885?
