I have a Nikon CoolPix S6100 and I'm trying to shoot video. When I try to upload from camera to computer, the Nikon Transfer 2 window will not recognize my camera so I can start transfer.
JA: What's the exact make and model of the camera? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: I thought that was the exact make and model. What else would I look for. It's approximately 2 years old. I've never used it before, though.
JA: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: clicking everything.
JA: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I know nothing about this camera, and I'm just trying to follow the manual.

Hello. My name is***** will be helping you with your question today. Please give me a moment to review your question and respond.

Do you know if you have the latest version of the Nikon Software installed?

Customer: replied 30 days ago.
It's the software that came with the camera

Ok. There is a much newer version. Just give me a moment and I can get a link to that for you.

Customer: replied 30 days ago.
If you're just going to give me a link, is it necessary to do it via the telephone?

No. That's a system message. You can dismiss that.

I keep forgetting that hitting 'return' will not enter the message typed.

If you go to the following link and click on software (box on the right), it will display the software downloads available.

The one you need is the first one - that includes both ViewNX-i & Capture NX-D. Click on the View Download Page link on the right, then download and follow the instructions. You may want to uninstall the original version first. Installing this software should resolve the issue. Please leave the camera unplugged until the software prompts you to plug it in.

I'll be available for any questions you still have. Please take a moment to click the 5 star rating and submit before leaving. It's a very important step, and I'll still be available to you if you have additional questions.
