Why is my Nikon Coolpix s550 not detected by Snow Leopard?

I am trying to move photographs from Nikon Coolpix s550 camera to a shiny new MacBook. I just connect a cable into a camera and usb port and then nothing happens on both sides.

I had trouble getting a camera recognized on my mini. It turned out to be a USB cable problem: unless the cable had a ferrite core after the connector, my camera wasn't recognized. Nikon actually included two ferrite cores that clip on over the outside of a USB/AV cable, but curiously, did not supply the cable itself, with my D3100. I suspect if you check your camera's manual, it'll specify the necessity for such noise-reducing attachments.
