There are two easy ways to transfer photos.
1) Connect via a USB cable. The cable came with your camera. If you lost it, you can buy a new one on line or from Nikon. The cable has a small plug that goes to the camera and a large end that plugs into a USB port on your computer. Once the cable is connected, turn on your camera and your computer will recognize your camera's memory card just like it recognizes an external hard drive or other device. If you go to Explorer on a PC or Finder if you have a Mac, you will see it as a device. Open the device and the folder(s) it contains then copy and paste or cut and paste the jpg files from that location to a folder on your hard drive.
2) Transfer your photos directly from your SD memory card to your computer using either your computer's SD card reader or a USB external SD card reader that you can purchase on line for $20 or less. Open the battery compartment door and you will see the end of the SD card. Remove the card from the camera by pushing it in (it is spring loaded) and releasing. It will pop out. Insert the card in your card reader and your computer will recognize the card as if it were a hard drive or similar. Follow the instructions that I gave you for transferring the files above. Both methods can be simplified if you use software such as Nikon's Transfer NX.
What make and model camera? Bear in mind that your 16GB card is actually an SDHC card, not an SD card. Some older cameras and card readers will only handle SD cards (2GB or smaller) and not the higher-capacity SDHC cards.
Your camera is only supporting SD/MMC Cards (up to 2 GB)
The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card. You might also need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.1: Menu, Cam settings, Chose AUTO or SD card option Press OK
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.
Is it the camera memory or the SD memory? Look on the menu screen on the bottom right. If the camera is not recognizing your SD card, it is saving to the camera memory which is very small and may give you 20 secs of video. It is supposed to automatically recognize your SD card but may not be doing that at all. If it doesn't do it automatically, I have found no way to get it to do it. The menu contains no option for formatting an SD card and it can't if it cannot recognize it anyway. I have tried reformatting the SD card in another camera. It may be the SD card size is too small and it won't recognize. I don't know. I have one and can't get it to work (recognize either one of two SD cards that I already had) and plan on taking it back to Best Buy to see if they have a solution before I buy new SD card. Anyway if you see "int" in the lower right that means it is recording to the internal memory and not your SD card.
It sounds like you don't have software on your PC that will recognize the camera when connected. I am going to recommend that you do not use the camera to upload photos. It is better practice to use external (SD) memory cards and remove them from the camera to upload. You can use a USB SD reader or purchase SD cards with a built-in USB interface. You should be able to see a new drive when connecting the SD card to your computer; then all you need to do is copy over the images. One advantage is that you will save camera battery while uploading because you dont need the camera at all. It also allows you to take images with you without taking the camera, i.e. school or work.

1) Are you putting the SD card from your camera into a slot on your laptop, or pc? Or are you putting it into a card reader?
2) Are you sure the switch on your card is in the unlocked position? Let me know if any of these doesn't work.
