Also, here are some more tips:
Are any firmware updates available for my camera?
Use the Update Camera function in the OLYMPUS Master 2 software packaged with your digital camera to find out whether firmware updates are available for your model. An Internet connection is required to perform the operation.
For detailed instructions on how to update the camera's firmware, click here.
Note: If multiple firmware updates are available for your model, it may not always be possible to update directly from the current firmware version in your camera to the latest available version. In such cases, updates must be applied in stages. For this reason, it is recommended that, after updating the camera firmware, you immediately check again for additional updates. Simply repeat the update procedure to apply subsequent updates.

Can't upload video from camera to pc Olympus TOUGH TG-310 Digital Camera


Do you have Windows Live Photo Gallery? It comes with Windows 7, but if not you can download it here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-live/photo-gallery-get-started
  1. Open Windows Live Photo Gallery
  2. Connect your camera
  3. Click the Import icon in the top left corner.
  4. Select your Olympus and click import. It should import both photos and videos.

You can also try and select the videos you want using the file download module Windows displays when a new device is plugged in. If that doesn't work, try
  1. Start > Computer > Olympus Tough TG-310
  2. Then open the folders until you find the videos you want. Select them and copy them to your desktop (or any other preferred location).
I have had video issues with my Olympus TOUGH (could not delete them from the camera) which turned out to be a formatting problem with the memory card.

Hello,

in that case, you need to download another driver/software from the manufacturer's (Olympus) website:

Click here: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_downloads.asp

Select Digital cameras from the list

Select FE series

Select the model which is 320

Select your Computer's operating system, which could be Microsoft windows or Mac/Apple.

Now proceed for the download.

If you need more assistance concerning the problem, please let me know.

Why won't my Olympus fe-5020 download photos onto the computer? It is properly plugged in but it won't turn itself on when plugged into the computer.


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 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.
