Re: only 72ppi?

You are mistaken. "ppi" is not a measure of anything useful when considering digital cameras, it is only useful when discussing printers. According to this review: The S9500 has a maximum resolution of 3488 x 2616. This means that when *printed* at 300 dpi, you can get an accurate 8.7" x 11.6" print without any "enlarging" (called interpolation). I would HIGHLY suspect the software used to print the photos, and not the camera itself. For excellent free, fast, and simple organizing and printing software (for Windows), take a look at

Instead of connecting the camera, try using a card reader like this one. You just take the memory card out of the camera and insert it into the card reader. It doesn't require any extra software and is faster and easier than connecting the camera.

No matter what batteries I buy camera will no longer take a pic.

This camera is noteworthy for this problem. Only non-rechargeable batteries seemed to work, and that gets expensive! But the solution for me was simple. You have to spend a little more money upfront, and get high capacity (e.g. 2450 mAh) batteries. You should be able to get those at Target or Walmart. The 2100 mAh ones just won't do the job.

Using the cheap, low capacity rechargeable batteries, I could only get a few shots off. With the high capacity ones, I can do 40 or so easily.

Horizontal lines on image

This is not a solution , but only a work around. If you do at least 1/3 zoom on your lens before clicking a photo, these lines will not appear. But this not not a convenient way I agree.
Also this surely means that the CCD is not the problem otherwise it would have never worked ( electronic parts cant simply dont start to work when you zoom ringht ? ). Surely Nikon is fixing the issue, but cheating the customers by charging for a part is not defective in the first place
