Hi,

Unfortunately, you cannot transfer the pictures from the camera's memory to the memory card; pictures can only be transfered to the computer (and then if you want to, you can transfer pictures from the computer to the memory card with the memory card inserted to the computer's memory slot, if available):

Can you get a USB cable? It's only a few dollars from your local computer/electronics/video store or online at

Thank you.

I went to Best Buy and they stated you cant buy an USB cord at the stores...they said I would have to order one thru Nikon. Is there any way to transfer the pictures to the computer without a cord?
Expert:  Viet - Camera Tech replied 2 years ago.
Sorry, you cannot. You have to get a USB cable. It's strange Best Buy does not have one. Any USB cable that fits the camera's port would work. Try another computer/electronic store. Otherwise, you can purchase online at
