Connecting to a Computer
This section describes how to use the supplied UC-E4 USB cable to 
connect the camera to a computer. Before connecting the camera, 
install Nikon Transfer and ViewNX from the supplied Software 
Suite CD (see the Software Installation Guide for more information). 
Nikon Transfer starts automatically when the camera is connected 
and is used to copy photographs to the computer, where they can 
be viewed using ViewNX (Nikon Transfer can also be used to back 
up photographs and embed information in photographs as they 
are transferred, while ViewNX can be used to sort photographs, 
convert images to different file formats, process NEF/RAW 
photographs, and modify NEF/RAW, TIFF, and JPEG images). To 
ensure that data transfer is not interrupted, be sure the camera 
battery is fully charged. If in doubt, charge the battery before use 
or use an EH-6 AC adapter (available separately).
