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
(Second Edition)
Windows 2000
Professional/Me/XP
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
installed OS.
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.

SOURCE: Vista not recognising Olympus camera on USB connection

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.

Don't use the camera software or drivers. Use a card reader instead, skip the software and drivers.
Once the files are on your computer from the card, you can use an viewer and editor of your choice.

Cannot download photos from Olympus FE-280


Connect Olympus camera to laptop with USB cable provided, turn the camera on and open "Computer" in Window explorer or Computer. You should see the new removable disk, click on it and you will probably see one subdirectory and one sub-sub drectory, something like 100OLYMP, open it up and you should see jpg files in your camera. The light will blink for some time and then stop. You should then be able to select the files and transfer them to your folder on the hard drive.

When you first turn on the camera you could check to see in Device Manager, under Portable Devices, if your camera is recognized and whether everything is OK with your driver.

If you have a card reader you can also try to read the card from the laptop.

Hope it works!

I'm actually surprised it's needing drivers. I've never had a problem with my d-540 being recognized in 2000 or XP, but perhaps Vista is different. An alternative might be to use a card reader.
