Windows XP users please note:

A driver is necessary when using the transfer button to transfer images from a COOLPIX2500 or COOLPIX2000 to a computer. Download the Nikon View 5 device driver. Be sure that the firmware for your COOLPIX2500 is version 1.1. Get more details on using Nikon View 5.1.3 with Windows XP from the link “Using Nikon View 5 under Windows XP” on the download page.

How to confirm the E2500 firmware version
(1)  Switch the camera off.
(2)    While holding down the Menu button, turn the camera on.  (Continue holding down the Menu button until the firmware version appears in the monitor.)  The monitor will display "*.*" where "*.*" represents the version number.
