Why does Windows 10 not recognize my camera - Nikon d7100? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ever since I bought my new computer which only came with Windows 10 I am not able to download my pictures from my Nikon d7100.  How do I get around this? The computer now does not even recognize my camera.  I regret ever getting Windows 10.  As a photographer I need to up load my photos to edit them in Lightroom and Photoshop and now I am unable to do so.
