    The camera shows the pictures no problem, the card reader isn't working at all (doesn't respond at all when I plug it in, nothing happens) - plugged in the camera and it showed all of the pictures, but when I started downloading them the first picture wouldn't load - tried various other pictures on the card and none will download on to my computer. what do I do??

    The problem may be the card reader and you may need to buy a new one. In the alternative, try loading Nikon's image software that came with the camera and use a USB cord to transfer the pictures. Unless there's something wrong with the memory card, this should work.

    Hi, thanks for your reply. I have attached the USB cable directly to the camera, and the pictures still do not upload onto my computer, I can't get them to upload. I can see the pictures on the camera, and also on the screen showing on the computer when it's connected to the camera - but when I try to upload, all pictures or just selected ones, they won't upload. any ideas how I can get the pictures off this card?

    You first have to install Nikon's image software that comes with the camera.

    thanks - I restarted the computer - again - and this time it worked, through the camera. I guess I'll toss this card and use a new one, don't know why it wouldn't work. thanks for your advice.
