When trying to save windows 7 says there is a problem with simple viewer and looks for a solution and quits the program. How can this be fixed?

Answers :

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.\012\012\012

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 any photo cataloging program.

We purchased a nightwatcher security light and when we tried to look at the video/images on the sd card it's not recognizing any of the files on our computer. It shows that the card is nearly full but doesn't recognized any files. We've tried to open it in microsoft video, picasa, and just simply trying to open the folder to see what's in it. When we open the folder it says it's empty. When we tried to open through microsoft video it says there are no files on the disk.

When I connect my camera to my computer, it appears to be empty. I have over 1000 photos on it which show on the camera screen, but the computer sees none. I have even tried downloading the drivers and 'Nikon transfer' package from the disk that came with the box. I am using windows xp. Why does my computer not read the camera? When I open the S52 folder in my computer, there are no files. When I then press 'get pictures from camera' it says that the camera is in use. What am I doing wrong?!
