In Topic: Computer will not recognize D3S via USB

Just checking. You have connected the camera directly to the computer and not via a USB-hub, right?


Have you tried installing ViewNX-i?


If yes to those two, I'm lost for suggestions.


This is correct.  Directly to front and back usb ports.  I've installed Nikon transfer as well.  I uninstalled my other D3S in the device manager under "devices" in windows 10, still nothing.  I have the option of sending it back for another body.  The one I have has just over 48,000 actuations.  The replacement would have 120,000 actuations.  Which really doesn't mean much.

Thank you for the advices.  I've installed the Nikon software with Transfer 2.  Nothing.  I've tried almost every hardware/software trick.  Nothing.  I updated to latest firmware.  Nothing.  I've used different cards, brands, sizes.  Pleaded with it.  I think perhaps it may simply be an extremely rare manufacturing flaw where one of the pins isn't making contact inside the camera.  But as Bengan said, card reader is best.  I wouldn't wan't to get caught transferring 60gb of photos via usb.  Any other advice I will try!
