The Nikon D60 --- like most other Nikon DSLR cameras --- supports Picture Transfer Protocol. PTP allows you to transfer files to other devices, most often computers and printers, without the need for special software or additional hardware, aside from the camera's USB cord. In order to take advantage of this feature, you must first activate it. A quick change in the D60's set-up menu is all it takes to get started.
