Having problems with your Nikon Digital Cameras ?

I cannot get my pictures from my camera onto my computer. I just got the camera and installed the software, but when I plug it in it's not recognizing my camera to transfer the pictures onto my computer

Answers :

Try a few things before making a purchase:
\015\0121) Check other USB ports to plug into on the computer. Is anything registering as a camera on your desktop when you plug it in? If not, move to step 2.
\015\0122) Do you have any memory card ports on your computer? If you do, try taking the memory from the camera and putting the card in the correct slot. If you do not have a memory card reader, you can usually find one at your local electronics retailer. Fry's, here in Nevada/California, has one for $4.99 (I am going to purchase one myself as I do not have the ports on my desktop and hate having to plug in three different cables for different cameras). Search for usb memory card reader on Google or ask for one at the store.
\015\012If the images are internal on the camera, contact Nikon's technical support for further diagnosis (they can walk you through everything on the phone).
