The manual doesn't go into any detail. The issue is the Nikon D300 isn't being recognized by Windows7

Microsoft has deemed it compatible with Windows 7.

I saw that, but not actually the case.

ryandrick... I have a Nikon D300 and I didn't even install the Nikon software (I like to install the minimum software I need).
When you plug the USB cable into your computer it should automatically detect the Nikon (assuming that the memory card is in the camera) as an additional drive. Really, there is no science to it.
You may be having a problem with your USB port. Try pluggin into another USB port.

The Nikon D300 when plugged via USB into any computer with Windows 7 acts as an external hard drive or external USB drive... it just gets recognized and it works. Unfortunately we didn't get any feedback to help the asker solve the issue.

I believe we can safely assume that most of the answers given above are correct and  valid for the question as asked and that the problem is probably NOT how to connect the Nikon but most likely how to solve  a bad USB driver issue....  The question itself was answered: Just plug it in.

I'm guessing that either the problem was resolved and the question abandoned or the problem persists and the asker still needs help to completely address this as a USB issue rather than a Nikon issue.

In my humble opinion for the record, there are many PAQ regarding how to solve the USB issue and the answer to this one should be: it's not a Nikon D300 issue, it's a USB driver issue and the question saved for future reference if anyone encounters the same or similar problem in the future..
