    Help. I can't download images from my Nikon Coolpix 4300
    digital camera. The harware installer says I need to
    install Microsoft XP Service Pack 1 for file ptpusd.dIII.
    I downloaded SP1 months ago and the XP update won't
    install new updates when it scans my system. Please email
    me at with any solutions. Thanks,

    Have you tried downloading and installing the latest software and drivers
    from the Nikon website? The latest software version is:
    Nikon View 6.1.0 Full Version - Windows (and it include all necessary USB

    Or you can download just the MSC and PTP drivers from that website . Here is
    some info on that subject (from Nikon):

    "" contains drivers in individual directories for all currently
    supported Coolpix and D1 series products. After the file is decompressed the
    following folders will be found, each with it's own "Setup" installer
    After determining which driver is needed open the correct folder and run the
    "Setup" program you find.

    MSC Cameras
    E995, E885, E775, E2000, E2500, E3500, E4300, E4500, E5000, E5700

    PTP Cameras
    E2000, E2500, E3500, E4300, E4500, E5000, E5700

    Many newer cameras can be used in either "MSC" or "PTP" USB mode. PTP mode
    can only be used with Windows XP. MSC is used for all others. With a camera
    set to MSC mode the camera will mount like a removable disk in "My
    Computer." MSC is the default setting for all Coolpix cameras.
