Gave up. All worked fine on my desktop XP (the .avi is focused less than crisply), but I also need it to work on my traveling Thinkpad Win98.

Dozens of people who bought this camera report on the Internet missing the driver necessary, mostly for XP. The camera has disappeared from the Internet and can't be googled ("Innovage 3-function 2.1 migapixel digital camera") - all we get now is "mini" and keychain. Evidently the manufacturer batches a product and, when wholesaled out, drops all evidence it ever existed, and certainly support. They haven't even provided a site from which to download Win98 drivers.

It's a good camera at a great price, quite advanced over the small digicams I first tried a few years ago to stand in for an old Kodak brownie, so I'm disappointed to have to take it back to Walgreens - there are few if any similar cameras avail for $30 or less. Guess I'll have to use my old 35mm for a while more until sanity returns to the digicam world. Maybe 2 of 5 cameras ($50-$100) are listed as suitable for Win98, but how to know they have the right drivers, or were evben tested on a Win98 config described?

Also, I'm not clear what drivers are wanted - one for the USB, or one for the device, or both? Shouldn't the USB driver be generalized, and the camera driver be specific for the device features (for example, this camera makes it's photos avail for download from a folder it creates when the camera is detected).

Anyway,
James

Olympus 3000 Zoom digital camera


You have to edit the file:

c:\windows\inf\srusbusd.inf

You'll have to remove two semicolons.

The section:
[Manufacturer]
;%MfgNikon%=ModelsNikon
;%MfgEpson%=ModelsEpson
remove this semicolon=>;%MfgOlympus%=ModelsOlympus

Must become:
[Manufacturer]
;%MfgNikon%=ModelsNikon
;%MfgEpson%=ModelsEpson
%MfgOlympus%=ModelsOlympus

And

The section:
[ModelsOlympus]
remove this semicolon=>;%USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100.Device%=Olympus,
USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100
must become:
[ModelsOlympus]
%USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100.Device%=Olympus, USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100

After this, if you have already the Olympus C-xxxx in your Device Manager,
uninstall it and run again the new hardware wizard. Let Windows XP find the
correct driver. Windows will attempt to frighten you with a catastrophe
prophecy. Just ignore it and go on (it works perfectly).
You're done. Now your Windows XP will see your Olympus C-XXXX Zoom
without any additional software.

Camera says its conected, program says its not


Hi, You can try booting your Win98 PC with the camera already connected to the USB. Sometimes 98 has a hardtime detecting if and when a USB device is connected to it when it is already running. By booting with it already connected, 98 at the onset sees it and boots with all the needed support files. Further, by booting with the camera already connected, you can verify if drivers are really needed since 98 will auto detect with "New Hardware Found" message. It might just be that you have to reinstall the drivers all over again. Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

My C3030 digital Camera won't work w/Windows XP


The C3000(which I have) and C3030 are not directly supported by any version of Windows. You must either use the Camedia software to access the camera(via USB connection) or use an external Smartmedia card reader like a ZIO(I have one, it works great). Camedia 2.0 will work(with XP) but it will not allow you to select more than one picture at a time to download from the camera. I have heard that Camedia 2.5 fixes this problem with XP and it is available for purchase from the Olympus website. I decided to get the card reader instead of the new version of Camedia because I use Photoshop to do my editing. I believe only the latest Oly cameras(like the 3020) have direct support under XP. By this I mean when you connect the camera to the PC it shows up as a new drive letter. Hope this helps.

Missing "imagehlp.dll" error on installation


Uninstalling other makers software may remove a system file which prevents installation of Coolpix drivers from the Nikon View v5.1 CD on Windows 98SE systems. It has been reported that, when connecting a Coolpix camera to a Windows 98SE machine, the hardware wizard will not recognize the appropriate driver; this setup fails because the file "IMAGEHLP.DLL" is missing from the system. Installation will stop with an error message which mentions this file. This problem may be caused by the earlier removal of another makers software from the operating system. To solve the problem, first disconnect the camera then follow these instructions to copy the appropriate file from the Win98SE CD back to the correct directory on your computer: Place the Win98SE CDROM in the CD-ROM drive. From the Start Menu select Run, type in SFC.EXE. Select "Extract a single file". Type in IMAGEHLP.DLL to the field provided. Click start. When the next dialogue box appears click "skip". This dialog box appears: Where e:\WIN98\ should be the Win98SE CD-ROM (your CD-ROM drive may use another letter other than "e"). Copy the file to the same destination shown and a screen will appear showing that "File has been successfully extracted". Next, remove the Win98SE CD-ROM from the CD-ROM drive and replace the Nikon View 5 CD in the CD-ROM drive. Reconnect the camera. The hardware wizard should automatically detect the camera and install the driver from the Nikon View 5 CD.
