Question about Olympus Camedia D-540 Zoom Digital Camera
Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
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). 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 management program such as Picasa:

SOURCE: No usb port found
I also have a problem tranferring from my Olympus digital camera. I hope some one will be able to help. I am working on Windows XP SP1. When I first tried to transfer pictures from my Olympus when the computer was new,the pictures transferred through the USB port with no problem. I then added a printer to the USB port and worked fine. I added a Zip drive to the other USB Port and that also worked fine. When I went to transfer pictures again, I had to disconnect the Zip drive from the usb port and connect the camera to the port. It would not work. I checked device manager and it did not list the camera in that port but the Zip drive,even though I had disconnected the device. I restarted the computer with the camera connected to the USB port and still it did not work. Device Manager still listed the Zip drive in that USB Port. The transfer worked fine before I used the USB ports. It seems that it always recognizes the Zip Drive and not the camera. The Camera and drivers are listed in device manager but not in the USB Port. Anyone,please help.

By connecting the camera to a computer with the provided USB cable,
images on a card can be transferred to the computer. Some OS's (operating
systems) may need a special setup when connecting to the camera for the
first time. Follow the chart below. For details on the procedures in the chart,
refer to the “Reference Manual” on the CD-ROM and the “Software
Installation Guide” (included in the CD-ROM package).
Identifying the OS
Windows 98/98 SE
Mac OS 9.0 - 9.1/OS X
*OS 8.6: See below.
Connecting the camera to a computer using the provided USB cable
Installing the USB
driver for Windows 98
Confirming the computer recognizes the camera
Downloading image files
Disconnecting the USB cable
Even if your computer has a USB connector, data transfer may not function correctly if
you are using one of the operating systems listed below or if you have an add-on USB
connector (extension card, etc.).
● Windows 95/NT 4.0
● Windows 98/98 SE upgrade from Windows 95
● Mac OS 8.6 or lower (except Mac OS 8.6 equipped with USB MASS Storage support
1.3.5 installed at the factory)
● Data transfer is not guaranteed on a home-built PC system or PCs with no factory
You can view images using: graphics applications that support the JPEG
file format (Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, etc.); Internet browsers (Netscape
Communicator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.); CAMEDIA Master
software; or other software. For details on using commercial graphics
applications, refer to their instruction manuals.

I just spoke to Olympus Tech Support.
You have to download Olympus Master 2. (Their program is no longer called Camedia Master.)
At their main site, search for olympus master 2.

Be sure that you plug original Olympus USB cable directly into USB port on mother board (ussualy on the back side of PC) not on the front pannel hub and not into extention USB cable.
