Question about Nikon Coolpix S2700 16 Megapixel Compact Camera - Purple - 2.7 LCD - 6x Optical Zoom - 4608 x 3456 Image - 1280 x 720 Video - HD Movie Mode
When I attached the camera to my computer via a USB cable, the computer does not recognise the camera, When the cable is attached the camera turns itself on, as it should, but then the charging light starts flashing (fast, showing it is charged) and the photos can not be lcated.

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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

SOURCE: can't download to computer
You need to go to the tools menu and change USB fro PTP (Picture transfer protocol) to MASS STORAGE. PTP is only used if controlling camera from computer.

Follow this order:
when plugging in the camera and then plugging into the compuer does the computer recognise it? If not this is either a bad cable, or not an active USB port, or something has gone wrong interanlly with the camera. Internal can be anything from bad voltage chip to bad battery. But some people have put the battery in backwards or with the positive terminal the wrong way. Double check that this has not happened, as anyone could have done it, unless you live alone. Try another computer and see if it recognises that camera if so the cable is good and you can continue to trouble shoot in other areas.

The battery itself won't charge in-camera like a cell phone-- you'd need to remove the battery and plug it into the supplied charger (EH-68P). You may have an ac adapter for the camera that basically would just be used to power the camera without a battery or for long periods of time without relying on the battery. It wouldn't be used to charge the camera.

usually fast flashing charge is faulty battery its trying to get volts in to the battery. you see the battery has a charging board on the battery not in the camera the camera sends the volts to the battery and the battery tells the camera its voltage, and when at the right volts stops charging. but these batteries can only be charged to around 10000hrs depending on the type of battery. you see when you get a new battery you need to charge it before use, now this can be 6hrs to 12hrs for fist time use if you interrupted the charge or have a power cut while it charges it can damage the charging chip in the battery. if this does the flashing light on other batteries then the signal is not being read by the camera and the camera can be faulty on the charging circuit, usually (sometimes) removing the battery for a few hours can fix this but it will rest the camera. hope this helps you.
