I just purchased a new camera, came with USB compatible cable but when I went to upload the pictures from the camera to the PC, nothing happened. A mini window popped up saying "P510" then "Camera connected" but there's nothing on the screen to show the pictures or anything else (screenshot attached). I have 8 USB ports, I was told not to use the 'hubs' but to use the USB at the back of the CPU. Doesn't work either. All the USB ports read my flash drive, a USB cable to charge and connect my Garmin GPS and my card reader. Why will it not recognize my camera. If it says "P510" and "Camera Connected" then why does it not recognize anything else to do with the camera? I ran a Dell Diagnostics and it said everything is working and no problems were detected. I took my camera and cable back to Henry's and they also could not get it to work. They tried their own camera and cable...no luck. Then they downloaded Nikon's "ViewNX 2" program for movie editing and to download/upload etc., etc., and it did recognize the camera and did show the pictures for uploading. I tried the same thing at home......DID NOT WORK! I am really really frustrated with this! Anyone have any idea what it is about my USB port that will not allow Nikon to be recognized?
Just call me Yep.
