Question about Nikon Coolpix S1 Digital Camera
Sequence of events that normally works: 1) Connect the COOL-STATION (with camera mounted and off) directly to the computer using the provided USB cable. 2) Turn the camera on. 3) PictureProject opens, and you are then able to transfer pictures. This is not happening. Now, when I turn the camera on, nothing happens. I tried opening PictureProject and clicking "transfer" to transfer pictures, but it tells me nothing is connected to do any transferring from. This has not happened before. I will mention that this is my first time using PictureProject on this computer. Normally, I use a different computer. PictureProject has been installed on both computers. What am I doing wrong?
I had this same problem and got this response from Nikon. I was using Windows 2000 with a L11.
The Coolpix L11 has 2 communication languages it used to talk to the computer and only one of them works with Windows 2000. You will need to make sure that the USB setting is set to Mass Storage. You can get to this option by going to the Setup menu of the camera. Go to your Shooting Mode and press the Menu button. Highlight Setup Menu and press the OK button. Highlight Interface and press the OK button. Highlight USB and press the OK button. Highlight Mass Storage and press the OK button. Turn off the camera and plug it into the back of the computer and then turn it back on. At this point the computer should recognize the camera. If at this point it does not recognize the camera, make sure you have fully charged batteries and that you are using an approved memory card.

I'm assuming that you are using a Windows based machine? If so, try another computer. If the camera is recognized when you plug it in, you have a software / driver issue and it's not in the camera. Just plug the computer into any other computer and don't bother with the software.
