Access Denied when trying to import pictures from camera and/or card

By talleybird ·
Recently when I try to import pictures from my camera (Nikon D5000), it tells me there are errors and image can not be transfered. Then, at the end of the attempt, it says access denied. I've tried multiple SD cards, same thing. I am able to browse the images, but can not import then to my computer (Windows 7)...Could this be a computer setting or the camera?

Severa suggestions

First, post this as a Question, and not as a Discussion. More support folks will see it there - you are more likely to get an answer.

Second, is there software supplied with the camera for doing this? Sometimes it is necessary that you use the provided proprietary software.

Access may be denied <i>because</i> there are errors, or possibly vice versa. Please provide the full text of the error messages. Also, look in the Windows Event Logs to see if there are better described errors.

Access Denied - Solution

I did face this problem few days back where all my flash drives are having an issue and stating it is locked. Check in the task bar if you have any called flash drive pencillin stating it is protecting your flash drives. Download any antivirus and scan the drive before you copy these files. if you are using nikon software to transfer it then try only windows folder and copy and paste the data.
One mroe thing would be to check if the SD card has a lock and unlock mode. Most of the SD cards have a lock which will be like a push button when you see at the sides.

Hope this helps
