There is a safety switch to prevent accidental operation. Hold the camera like you are taking a photo. Rotate the camera down so the lense is pointing towards the floor and you are now looking at the bottom of the camera. On the right is a small button. In the middle is a slide switch with an arrow pointing to the left. You need to hold in the button on the right while sliding the switch to the left.

SOURCE: nikon n75 problem loading film
I have (had) the same problem. I came onto this site to find out what I can do to fix it. It didn't help. I got pissed and almost threw the camera away. So I decided to get a little rough with the camera, (i normally wouldn't do this but i was going to throw it away).
I loaded the film like normal but before I closed the back I manually wound the film around the opposite spool. I guess I fooled the camera into thinking it had already wound the film.
When I closed the back of the camera everything worked fine.
I then snapped off the pics the camera said were left.
After this first role, I loaded the next role like normal. The camera worked like a charm!
By the way...the mirror dropped back down when I manually wound the film around the spool.
I hope this works...if it doesn't make any sense feel free to email me with any questions..

You haven't stated which model you have, but generally most SLR's open by pulling upwards on the film rewind crank (the knob on the left side of the top-plate as viewed from behind). If this doesn't work then add the exact model as a comment to my answer and I'll try to give you specific instructions for your model.

Draw the film all the way to the receiving spool. There's an 'eye' inside the film compartment to check that the film is loaded. When the film is not correctly loaded the camera thinks it's empty and rewinds the film.

Pull up the film rewind knob to open the back.
Drop the cartridge into the well on the left and, while rotating the rewind knob, push it back down to secure the cartridge.
Pull the leader across and insert it into any of the slots in the takeup spool.
Make sure the film perforations engage the sprocket teeth.
Alternately wind the film lever and press the shutter button until the perforations on both edges of the film engage the sprocket teeth.
Close the camera back, making sure it latches.
Take up the film slack by rotating the rewind knob in the direction of the arrow until you feel resistance.
Make blank exposures until the counter shows "1".
There's a fuller, illustrated set of instructions in the manual, which you can download from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon.htm
