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

I need to set up the card on my Olympus C-5060 camera. When I choose the format button, it just beeps forever.


1. Power the camera off and remove and replace the card several times.
2. Recheck.
3. Put in another memory card and check.

If the recheck (2) does help, it may be dirty contacts.
If another memory card has the same issue, the camera needs repair.

It is not a problem it's just a simple question. I have an Olympus E-500 is it possible of taking video with it? Because there is section on the Camera stating "USB Video Out".


The Olympus E-500 Video Out port is for reviewing previously captured images and movies, or running slide shows from the camera. Through the Setup menu, you can set the Video Out signal to NTSC or PAL.

Consider 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Why it takes forever before i can download pictures to my computer


The camera uses a USB2.0 connection. The best speed results can only be achieved when the computer does have USB2.0 or better too. You can try another USB port or try it on another computer.
An alternative is to use a SD / SDHC memorycard and to transfer the pictures, put the card into the computer cardreader.

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.
