Why wont Nikon coolpix s6800 connect to Smart device?

What smart device?
To connect it to a computer, you first have to install software and a driver, so the computer knows what camera you connect and what it should do.
When you have a camera connection kit for the iPad, you can connect the Nikon Coolpix S6800 direct to the iPad and it will ask you what to do with the pictures. You direct can access the pictures, download them on the iPad and deleted them in the camera, if you allow the iPad to do so.
I think other devices also should have connection tools and / or apps.
Next time, please also give us the device name and OS it is running.

I cant load my olmpus 300 on to pc,loaded camedia on ok but wont pick up my camera,tried to load it using devices butsays not in right file.checked usb devices,tried to add device but not having it

Consider NOT using the USB connection.

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, such as Picasa ( ).

I have lost the download USB cable is a replacement aval & where

Most digital cameras have usuallly a USB to mini USB cable to connect to the computer. You can buy this cable from an electronics or pc store.
It is better if you take your camera with you so that the salesman can give you the right one.

My computer wont recognise my FinePix A610 camera

Suggest that you go tp my computer as the answer above has suggested and attempt to open drive(memory chip) in the camera and download. If not suggest removing the memory chip from the camera and try accessing via Walmart or other stores photo Kiosk.

Suggest opening Fin-pix first before connecting camera.

Through fine-pix search for camera as if it was an external drive. Hope this helps?
