Hi!

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)

Do rate the solution.
Thanks

My nikon s51 will not turn on when I plug the transfer cable into the camera


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Nikon Transfer or Picasa.

I have a Nikon Coolpix s51 but my screen is cracked. I am trying to transfer the photos from my memory card and camera to my computer, but i am having trouble figuring out how to do that???


At this point, I would remove the card from the camera. If you don't already have a card reader, invest in one. Connect the card reader to the computer, then plug the card into the reader. You can use Nikon Transfer ( http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61 ) or the operating system's drag&drop to transfer the pictures to your computer.

If you have pictures stored in the camera's internal memory and the screen is at least partially legible, you can try to select "Copy" from the Setup menu to transfer pictures from the internal memory to the memory card before you follow the suggestions in the first paragraph.
