Battery any good? Have an adapter? If both do not restore operation, you might want to check to see if your camera has a default restore button.

SOURCE: Nikon Coolpix S550 transfer problem

It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But as a solution I highly recommend that you instead consider a card reader to download your photos to your computer. They're very inexpensive, much faster downloading photos from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.

You place the camera's card in the reader, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For all of these reasons, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. Really, you'll save yourself a lot of heartache. Here are some examples from Amazon. Also, don't be fooled by the cost. some of the cheap ones work just fine. Go by the reviews. Also make sure you get a reader that is stated capable of reading your card (particularly if you have an SDHC card)::

For international readers, here's another source for card readers (free international shipping too :-)

The same thing happened to me. So frusterating! Make sure it is in shooting mode. Go to the shooting mode menu and go all the way down the page to "Distortion Control". Change it to off. Now you can select continuous mode.

Consider 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.

How do I upload photos from my computer to my iphone 5c smartphone?


How to Transfer Photos: Windows Vista/7 Users If you have Windows 7 or Vista, there are two easy ways to transfer your photos directly to your desired folder or directory.

AutoPlay Method


iphone-3.png
When your iPhone device is connected, click on the Start Menu, and then Control Panel. Click Hardware and Sound. Select AutoPlay, scroll down to find where your iPhone device is listed, open the drop-down menu, and select "Ask me every time."
Step 1 - Connect your iPhone device
If you enabled the AutoPlay behavior using the method described above, you can skip this step, because your iPhone is already plugged in. If not, connect your device using the appropriate USB cable that your phone came with.
Step 2 - Import Pictures and Video
iphone-5.png
The AutoPlay prompt should appear with your device type listed at the top. Click the first link that says "Import Pictures and Video."
If for some reason the AutoPlay prompt did not appear, go to Start, then Computer, then right click on the icon for your iPhone device and select "Import pictures and video" from the context menu that appears.
Step 3 - Choose a directory, and import
Before you click Import, go to Import Settings, and select the "Import to" field to select the destination you want your photos to transfer to. By default, they will transfer to your My Pictures folder. You can also select the "Always erase from device after copying" option, though this is, as always, optional.
Click OK, then click Import, and your photos will be transferred to their designated directory.

Windows Explorer

If you don't want to mess with AutoPlay, you can find and transfer your photos manually using Windows Explorer.
Step 1 - Connect your iPhone device
Step 2 - Click Start, then Computer
This should take you to a Windows Explorer page that lists your hard disk drive(s), and devices with removable storage. If connected properly, your iPhone device will register as a device with removable storage, and you will see the icon for it listed below this header.
Step 3 - Double-click your device's logo in Windows Explorer
Double-clicking your device will open it up as a directory, full of folders and sub-folders that store all of your phone's content.
Step 4 - Open your camera folder
Your camera folder should be located in [Your iPhone Device]\Internal Storage\DCIM\100APPLE. This means once you're in your iPhone's directory, click on the Internal Storage folder, then the DCIM folder, then the 100APPLE folder.
Step 5 - Transfer your photos
You can import your device's photos by selecting the ones you want, or pressing Ctrl+A to select them all, and dragging them onto your desktop. Or, you can hit Ctrl+C to copy the photos, and then hit Ctrl+V in the folder you want to copy them into.

Transfer pictures from tablet to computer


The simplest way is to use a usb flash drive or an external drive. Simply plug it into the tablet and open it once the computer recognizes it. Create a folder on the USB Flash or External and call it TabletPics for example. Then go to where the pictures on the tablet (probably in my documents or my pictures). You can copy the one picture from the tablet by highlighting it then right clicking on it and select copy or you can select Edit then copy at the top of the window where the pictures are. Then go to the usb flash drive or external drive and paste them by selecting Edit Paste or by right clicking anywhere within the Folder we created called TabletPics and select Past.. If you have a lot of pictures you want to copy you can try clicking on the first one you want to highlight it then go down to the last one you want and press the Shift Key and hold it while you Click on the last picture you want. It will highlight every thing you selected then you can copy them as we did before with the one picture and go paste them on the usb Flash Drive or External Drive in the Folder we created called Tablet Pics.

When you are done copying the pictures to the usb flash drive or external drive from the tablet, remove it and go plug it into the computer you want to put them on. It's the same process you will be copying pictures from folder TabletPics on the usb or external to a folder on the computer. Actually you can just copy the whole tabletpics folder by clicking on it and then Paste the whole folder on to the computer in the My Pictures folder.

I want to transfer 525 pictures stored on my computer to a memory stick. how do I do this?


Plug the memory stick into the computer and format it. Unplug it then plug it back into the computer, you should have a pop up that asks you what you want to do (open folder view, play and a few other options), you weant to choose Open a Folder View.

You should now have a window open that you can put files into, if not then go to "My Computer" and select it from the available drives.

Now open up the folder with your pictures in it and select all the pictures you want to transfer then press "copy". Go to the memory sticks folder and right click and select "paste" from the right click menu or hit "CTRL+V".

You will get a progress pop up that shows how long the file transfer will take, after it is done...so are you.

If the memory stick is not recognized when plugged in, you way need to load the software that came with the memory stick for its drivers.

DSC-S730 copy my picture to my computer?


The procedure to transfer pictures to a Computer depends on whether or not the Camera has the capability of using Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP). If the Camera is capable of PTP (in this case; DSC-S730 - YES), set the USB mode in the Camera menu to PTP and then use the PTP procedure to copy the pictures to the computer. Otherwise, use one of the standard USB transfer procedures.

This procedure must be performed while logged in as Administrator or to an account with Administrator rights:

  1. Turn on the Computer.
  2. Turn on the Camera.
  3. Insert the recording media containing the pictures into the Camera.
  4. Set the USB connection or Transfer mode setting in the Camera menu to PTP .
  5. Use the USB cable supplied with the Camera to connect the Camera to the Computer. NOTE: Connection through a USB hub or other USB device --such as a printer or keyboard-- is not supported and cannot be guaranteed. The Camera should be connected directly to a USB port on the Computer.
    NOTE: The Scanner and Camera Wizard should automatically start.
  6. In the Scanner and Camera Wizard window, click the Next button.
  7. Under Choose Pictures to Copy , do one of the following:
    • Click to select each picture you want to copy.
    • Click Select All to select all the pictures for copying.
    NOTE: Selected images will be marked with a green check mark.
  8. Click the Next button.
  9. Under Picture Name and Destination , in the Type a name for this group of pictures field, enter a name for the folder where the pictures will be saved.
  10. Next to the Choose a place to save this group of pictures field, click the Browse button.
  11. In the Browse for Folder window, click to select the location on the computer where you want to save the pictures.
  12. Click the OK button.
  13. In the Scanner and Camera Wizard window, click the Next button. NOTE: The pictures are copied to the Computer.
  14. After the transfer process it finished, under Other Options , click to select Nothing, I'm finished working with these pictures .
  15. Click the Next button.
  16. Click the Finish button.
If you are still unable to transfer pictures, please switch the USB mode of the Camera to Normal or Mass Storage and try again.
After following the steps above, the pictures from the camera should successfully be copied to the computer. If for some reason the pictures did not copy, try using the method for standard USB picture transfer.

I'm assuming you are using the Windows XP Operating System in the Computer. If not then follow this link:
