    I have a CoolPix S80. I know I should have an SD card reader to get the photos off, but for now I don't have one. I'm limited to the USB cable. When I connect the camera to a USB port nothing happens. My experience says that a folder should pop up on the desktop, but it's not happening here. I've tried different combinations of Power On/Off, Auto Mode, Manual Mode, etc.

    Anyone have any insights on what I can do to make this do what I think it should?

    Thanks.

    make sure it's on
    put it in picture review mode, or whatever mode it's called when you want to flip through the pictures...

    Check the USB settings inside the cameras menus too as there is a Mass Storage option and a tether option. Mass Storage is usually a big M, the tether option is usually a big P.

    The Mass Storage option should show up on desktop as a removable drive, the other one will not do anything unless you open up Nikon's software.

    Thanks, guise. I'll try all these out except the dead batteries thing. I know they're not dead.
