If you have an adapter cord for the cam to computer you just go to my computer or computer depending on your OS XP or Vista.Then you just right click what ever usb port you've hooked the cam to and open the file it will come up nikon pix then the folder and the next page will be the list of whayt is on your memory card, some of the icons will have a small leftward facing arrow and the file number will have "mov" in the number. These are your movie clips. You can choose to save all the icons or just the ones you want but either way the pix will show up in the windows picture viewer and the movie clips will open with windows media player or whatever you've specified in the properties menu.

When you plug the camera into a computer, you should see at least one new drive appear, go into "my computer " and opn the new drive and there will be a dcim folder, usually the movies are in there, just copy and paste them onto your desktop or whichever folder you want them in.

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 Nikon Transfer or iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

How can i use my nikon s550 as web cam

You can't. The S550 was designed as a camera, storing images and videos to memory. It was not designed to stream videos to an external device.

How do I restored a pic. that was deleted from a nikon coolpix s550

You can download some free programs to do this.
Here is a link to one of the programs to do this.
Download it, install it, and use a card reader or your camera, according to the instructions. Pretty neat software, and not really free.

Cannot download videos from camera to computer

probably cause you use a downloading software that came with the camera ...and its set to locate pictures only ..
just connect the camera ..and ignore the software by cancel it ...after that go to my computer ...and you should find the device ...present as a drive ...
either storage device ..or by the name of teh camera ...there you will find all storage into it ...and it will behave like a removable storage device as in memory flash or ...just locate the videos into the folders...and copy /paste ..
if not ...another way if to run the auto-run ..but not the software ...and choose open containing folder or something alike ...
