Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Olympus FE-170 won't upload pictures.

So, I've had this camera for quite some time now. And it's always worked perfectly fine in the uploading picture department. But I think it was about last month it started doing something strange. Everytime I plug my USB chord in, it uploads pictures. Weird right? No...The weird part is it's uploading pictures I deleted MONTHS ago. WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?!?!. Well, the part the grinds my gutter is that the pictures I've taken recently and actually WANT to upload, don't show up. I don't know what my cameras major additude problem is, but I'm not pleased. So, if you know how to fix this problem...or think I should just take my camera out back and shoot it. Let me know :]
Thank You.

Format your camera's internal memory and also format any memory cards you insert.
Use a program called Recover4All to see exactly what is in your camera's internal memory.
Then insert a memory formatted memory card and take some pictures. see if they will upload.

How to upload pictures from olympus fe-170


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 or FireWire). 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 cataloging program such as Picasa.

The easiest solution is a cheap $5 card reader available online or from a local walmart. If you don't want to do that, you can check the olympus website's download section to see if they've issued new software or driver's for your model and Window's 7.

Hey dramaqueen79,
It sounds like you have internal damage to the camera. I would have it looked at be an authorized service center. If you are fine with the performance of the camera and all you want to do is be able to upload your images you could purchase a card reader(for an xd memory card) that connects to a usb port, and upload your images directly to your computer with the card reader.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
