Are you using Windows operating system? Connect camera via USB, go to devices and printers on the control panel, if the SO1 is listed right click on the device symbol and select auto play. Hard to diagnosis without asking these questions.
Ifthe camera is not showing up as a listed device, I suggest calling Nikon service and support. In the US it is 800- NIKON US

Not a lot of help, This is a NIKON product, I am shocked you don't have a solution to download to the most commonly used Tablet. Many people have given up a computer while traveling to use a tablet We have done this for the past 2 years. And we have been successful downloading from the S01 to the Ipad 2nd generation. Now a new one and it doesn't work. It also sounds like Nikon doesn't care there product wont download.

The S01 will automatically switch to Close-Up Mode when it senses that its appropriate for the subject. The focus range for this mode is 5cm to infinity at "W" and 50cm to infinity at "T". If the focus indicator turns green but your pictures are still blurry, you may be experiencing motion blur. Motion blur will occur if the camera slows down the shutter speed to compensate for shooting without flash in low light. To resolve this you can try enabling the flash or steadying the camera by resting it on a stable surface.

Please see page 14 of the S01 manual for details on other situations that may impair the camera's ability to focus. A copy of the S01 manual can be downloaded from here:https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

If you continue to have trouble please contact Nikon Support: http://support.nikonusa.com.

Question

When I return my camera to the factory settings, it will only hold 18 pictures with the internal memory. How do I fix this?

Even with the image quality lowered to 2M, it will only hold 89 pictures. I see that it should be able to hold 1700-1800 images. What can I do to get this camera to hold more images? I thought that the internal memory was able to hold many more pictures than 90.

Its a good camera but if you need it specifically for low light shooting, there are better options. A camera with a maximum aperture number of 2.8 or below is ideal for shooting in low light. the lower the aperture number the better.

The COOLPIX S01 does not use a memory card but instead stores all image files in its internal memory. To print pictures from the S01 you would need to upload them from the camera to a computer or printer. When using a service to print your pictures, it would probably best if you transfer the pictures to your computer and then them onto a memory card, USB drive or CD. You can then leave that with the printing service instead of leaving your camera.

Further information on transferring images to your computer can be found starting on page 46 of the S01 manual. Information on printing photographs can be found starting on page 48 of the S01 manual. Also check out page 25 of the S01 manual for a chart showing the approximate number of images that can be stored on the internal memory. A copy of the S01 manual can be downloaded from here:

When playing the movie, there should be a speaker icon on the far right of the screen. If there is a diagonal line on the speaker icon, It means the sound is disabled, and you will need to tap it to enable the sound. If that does not help, turn the camera on and press the home button. Select 'setup', then scroll down and select 'Reset all', then select 'Reset'. Record another movie and try playing it to see if the camera sound works. If the issue persists, please contact technical support from the link below.

Question

Can you take panoramic photos with the Nikon S01? If so, how do you do it? Please help!! thanks! : )

I received the Nikon S01 as a present for Christmas. I love it, but I really need to be able to take panoramic photos, and I don't see anything in the user manual or anywhere online about how I can easily do this. I am afraid that I may have to sell the camera or find out where they got it and try to return it if it is not capable of taking panoramic photos. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!! : )

Please ensure that your S01 is fully charged and that the time and date are set and try formatting the internal memory again. See page 60 of the S01 manual for info on formatting the internal memory and page 57 for info on setting the time and date. If this doesn't help try resetting the camera using the reset button that is on the bottom of the camera next to the USB port. See the first item in the Troubleshooting section (page 72) of the S01 manual for more info on using the reset button. A copy of the S01 manual can be downloaded from this address: http://support.nikonusa.com/app/ans...

If these steps don't resolve the issues you are experiencing with your S01 contact Nikon Support - http://support.nikonusa.com/app/ans...
