I have a Nikon Coolpix L120 camera and I took several pictures on it. I did not have a memory card in it when the I took the pictures. I have lost my USB cord and need to transfer the pictures to my new memory card, but I dont know how to do it. Can you please help?
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

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?
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
