It would appear that the computer is not installing the right driver for the camera. the driver it needs to install is the usbstor, the same driver that it uses for flash drives. try another usb port, prefer to be direct and not hub.

if that doesnt work, go to device manager and uninstall the driver associated with the device, then unplug and replug the camera back in

Software is unable to find Olympus Digital camera connected to USB port


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 such as Picasa.

TCL Blue Screen "No Media"


I have this tv, just had this exact problem and just fixed it. All this screen means is that you have pushed the "media" button on your remote and it's telling you that nothing is plugged in to your usb drive on the tv. If you plug in a usb key with pictures or video on it, you'll be able to view those from this screen. Otherwise, to exit this elusive "no media" screen, grab your remote and hit the button that says "tv" to get back to the blue screen that says "no signal" and from there, you should be able to hit the "input" button on the remote and switch between your inputs of choice. My favorite input is my apple tv plugged into hdmi 2. yay!

Have you tried to go to the menu and format the voice recorder? This should reset the recorder back to its factory default settings. If that does not happen then the recorder may need to be sent for repair as Olympus would have to reimage the device.

When the camera is connected to the computer does the camera LCD screen show a USB menu on it with the option of PC highlit? If so, then you need to press Ok on the camera to get the camera and the computer to start communicating. Once communication established the camera screen should go black and your computer should indicate that a removable disk drive has been created. If the disk drive does not get created that could be the problem. You may want to call Olympus technical support for further troubleshooting help/ Their telephone number is 888-553-4448 option 5 and then option 1.
