Question about Olympus Stylus 740 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cannot View Uploaded File

I had transfered the images taken from my digital camera to my laptop computer using the card reader. When I wanted to view the images using Olympus Master software, I could only see the image thumbnail but warning "Failed to open the file" appeared when I double-click the thumbnail. I am worried that I might loose the image since I had already erased the files in the camera. Can someone please help me to solve my problem. I have the Olympus Master software version 1.42 that came with my stylus 740. I have always been able until now to view the videos I make with my camera but now the new ones I have transterred don't work and neither do the existing ones. Error when opening them shows "failed to open file". This software is set to quicktime default for videos which I have, they used to work but now don't and the new videos show a piece of paper with a ripe to the right and a yellow triangle with an exclamation point in the middle. Can anyone help me. Olympus website doesn't help and neither does the manual.

    Thank you smilemaker but I don't have problems viewing my pics, it's the video taken with the camera. I can no longer view them through the Olypus master software that came with the camera. I have reinstalled the software, reset default for videos, everything I could think of and nothing works.

I put pictures in my memory card but doesn't let me view them in my camera


You need to import the photos to your PC to view them. There are two ways to do so: connecting a camera directly to the computer via USB (Universal Serial Bus) cable and by using a flash memory reader. Using the flash memory reader is considered the fastest method to transfer images. Some of the popular types of flash memory card readers are Secure Digital (SD), Compact Flash (CF), Memory Stick (MS), Multimedia Card (MMC) and Smart Media (SM). Here is how you can use the reader to view photos from your digital camera.

I want to transfer pictures from my laptop to the memory card in my Coolpix


You'll have to use a card reader. Despite the name, a card reader also lets you write to the card. Be aware that if the pictures were taken on a different type camera, or if you've done any editing on them, you probably won't be able to view them on the camera.

Have a olympus sp-56 ouz digital camera and I can't figure out how to delete videos taken on the camera. I've already transfered them to my computer and I've deleted all images, but it won't delete the...


Hello, The videos will not be in the same folder where your pictures are. Follow these steps. 1.First, connect your digital camera to your computer. You can do this in two different ways: a.Use a USB cable. Most digital cameras come with a cable that connects the camera to a USB (Universal Serial Bus) port on your computer. The first time you connect your camera to your computer, the New Hardware Wizard will help you install the software needed to copy pictures and video from your camera. You may need to insert the CD-ROM that was included with your camera into your computer's CD drive or download software from your camera manufacturer's Web site. b.Use memory card reader. A memory card reader is a piece of hardware that plugs into your computer. When you're ready to download video, you can remove the memory card from your camera and insert it into your memory card reader, similar to the way you might transfer a file between two computers using a floppy disk. Picture of a computer with a memory card Tip: It's usually faster to use a memory card reader to copy your pictures or video than to connect your camera to your computer with a cable. If you don't own a memory card reader, you might want to consider purchasing one. They are inexpensive and will save you time. 2.Once you've connected your camera to your computer or inserted your memory card into your memory card reader, Windows XP will detect the connection to your memory card and ask what to do with your videos. Click Open folder to view files, and then click OK. Click Open folder to view files, and then click OK 3.Windows Explorer opens, showing your memory card. Your videos are contained within one of the subfolders of the memory card. Double-click each folder to locate your videos. 4.Once located. copy them to your computer and then select all and delete. Please rate my solution. Good luck, Jegan

Photographs have strange file names when uploaded onto computer


There is corruption of some kind here. You need to get a card reader, so that your camera is not in use. Download this program from this site:

http://www.pcinspector.de/Sites/smart_recovery/info.htm?language=1

Put the card in the reader, and use the program to recover your files.

Corruption may be caused by many things. Most common are x-rays at third world country airports and radio transmitters, including mobile phones!

Hmm, there isn't a little viewing screen? Anyway, you can download the images to your computer and view them there. Either hook the camera up to your computer via the cable that came with it. Or, you'll need a card reader & take the card out and hook up the reader to the 'puter and insert card. If you're using Xp a image downloading wizard thingy will pop-up and walk you thru the process. If not, after hooking camera or card up to 'puter, click on "my computer" find your device and click on it to open & view photos there. And transfer images to your computer too.

try opening the photos with any other viewing software you have - paint, windows picture and fax viewer to name but 2. If you get the same results then the files are probably corrupt, and the probability is that your memory card could be causing the problem, try another card and see if pictures you take can be viewed. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the camera and the olympus software, it just might help. If this doesn't work please post again and we could give you some info on software for recovering corrupt and deleted files. Hope this helps :)

Can I transfer photos back to the card after editing the images?


Nikon complies with the industry standard DCF (Design Rule for Camera File Systems) format which governs the file structure of images on memory cards as well as file naming and other image properties. Due to the constraints of this file system, images that have been edited may not be able to be read by the camera when copied back to the card. The card can, however, be used to move images (or other files) just like any other removable disk. To do this connect the camera to the computer using the "MSC" USB mode (where supported) or use a third-party USB memory card reader. The camera's card will then appear like any other "Removable Device" and files can be copied to it. Nikon cannot offer additional assistance in transferring images back to the card or viewing edited images on the camera.
