I have had my Nikon S3100 camera for years now and it has worked well with Windows 7 until tonight, I tried to import my photos and it would not work. It would not respond at all when I clicked import using Windows. This same camera will also not delete the photos after importing so my memory stick is kind of full. Could that be the issue?

Have you tried inserting the camera's flash card into a little USB card reader?

My laptop does not have the slot for it.

The little adapters I linked to above have a slot for the camera's SD flash card ... as well as a USB connector that will plug into a USB port on your laptop. For example, click here and browse through the pictures.

I am able to get photos out by directly extracting via the files on my memory card. The Computer will recognize the camera. Will it affect anything if I just cut and paste all the files from my card on to my computer or external HD?

Cutting and pasting is fine.

As far as "will it affect anything", yes. The free space on the target drive will be reduced. :)

So no bad effects? Good

If everything is running as it should be, there should be no problem whatsoever. Millions copy and paste daily.

I am aware of that, I am guessing if I cut and paste all the folders, it will create new ones. I am thinking my camera is having problems auto exporting because my memory card is almost full.

Yes.

<-shrug-> Doesn't affect mine, even when full.
