With each shot this camera auto advances the film. Maybe, when the film door is closed the film is not seated properly all to the right side. Thus the take up reel is not pulling the film.
Being as the N65 appeared in 2000, it is possible it may be stoved-up. Also, if so these are not worth fixing. For the cost of fixing I would look for a N80; a very nice camera much improved over the N65.
At first glance it seems your camera may need repair. First thing I would do is clean the contacts that read the cartage. Put in a cartridge that you can afford to play with. Put the lens cap on keeping light from exposing the film, fire off the frames until it stops. If it still stops at 24-26 rewind the film (hope you have a film puller). Open the camera back fire off some shots then replace the film trying it again. If that does not work the counter is in need of repair.
However, I would not repair it I would purchase another film camera such as the Nikon N80 and if you can afford it the F100. Both are much superior to the N65. You can find N80 at KEH.com for less than $100, As of today, 2013-10-17, I see one in E+ condition for $76, a N65 for $14.
If by manual you mean turning a crank to rewind the film, no. If you mean to do it at a point other than the end of the roll, yes.
To rewind film mid-roll, press the two film rewind buttons simultaneously for approximately one second. The film will then rewind and the frame counter will count backward. The film is completely rewound when the E appears in place of the frame number.
The two film rewind buttons are marked with a red film canister symbol with left-pointing arrows. One is the exposure compensation button next to the control panel, the other is the self-timer button next to the mode dial.

I would suggest you buy an off-brand roll of 12 or 24 exposures. Run it through the camera taking snaps of anything -- but make sure you vary the lighting, ISO, shutter speed, aperture, etc. as you snap the pics. Don't worry too much about composition. This roll is a quick test, NOT for photos to keep.
Have the film developed and then follow-up with comments on the results. I'll gladly assist you further at that time. Char1ieJ
the only thing that I could think of when I read your situation is, that you might not be using a DX coated films. see, the camera reads the bar code on the film and maybe it is not the same program. check the camear manual and make sure you are using the same kind of the suggested film in the manual. good luck
