The S51 does not charge via the USB. Connecting the camera to a computer merely drains the battery faster, since the camera has to expend power communicating with the computer (even if it's only to say it has nothing to say).
The S51 comes with an MH-62 charger, which plugs into a wall outlet. This allows you to charge one EN-EL8 battery while using another in the camera.
If you need a charger, you can order one from Nikon at http://shop.nikonusa.com/store/nikonusa/en_US/pd/productID.213504000 or a third-party one for about half the price at http://www.overstock.com/Electronics/Dolica-Nikon-MH62-Charger/3540124/product.html
Press the flash button (Up on the multiselector). This gets you a menu with five choices: Auto, Auto with red-eye reduction, Off, Fill flash, and Slow sync. Select the one you want (eventually, you're going to want to turn the flash back on) and press OK.
Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the
battery contacts inside the camera
which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the
camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the
batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen
into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your
batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
take the camera into a computers store they should have a cord if not they can order. or try ebay .. you shoukdnt need the cd for the pictures to load on the pc. i have a nikon and have never used the cd . my pc just picks up the camera when its hooked up..
Try to plug into a different USB port. If that does not help then go to Control panel->systems-> hardware tab-> device manager->and now try to see if your Camera appears under the options listed (would be under Scanners and Camera, Click on every + sign to see)
