Hi There, If you are using Windows xp or vista, you probably don't need special drivers, the computer should recognize what you are trying to do. Just in case, check your owners manual for computer/download info. Also check your usb input or try another usb input to make sure they are working. You could also try a friends computer to eliminate trouble with your own. If all else fails, you could purchase a usb multi- card reader to down load your pics, around $20.00.

When I try to download photos from my S2700 to my computer, via a USB, the computer does not recognise the camera and the charging light flashes rapidly when the cable is attached and camera turns its


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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Hi, I'm trying to download photos from my G12 to my PC, but the computer doesn't recognise the camera. It's always worked fine before, so I've tried a card reader, a different USB socket...

It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headache of these software problems? Please see the following post, as it outlines a much easier, faster, and less error prone alternative way to download your photos (it's what most, if not all professional photographers use):

Computer won't recognise camera to download images


** Problem Solved **

I found it wasn't the camera entirely to blame. I tried another USB cable on another pc, and although the camera was doing the same thing as my problem, the computer recognised the camera as new hardware, and asked me how to access the pictures. So I was able to get the pictures from the camera to the computer, and then saved them on to my Kingston flash drive. So taking the flash drive to my daily PC, I plugged in my flash drive via a USB extension lead, and discovered that would read either... alarm bells rang. So I unplugged the lead, and put the flash drive straight into the computer direct. The computer recognised it immediately. So plugging in the extension lead again, and the flash drive, it read this now. So I tried the camera, and it recognised it.

So I don't know exactly what the problem was, but it was solved... saved me a lot of running around and money ;)

Problems downloading photos from camera


Unless someone else on the forum offers something more specific, I'd be very tempted to borrow a USB cable from a friend and see if using that instead of yours works. (Doesn't have to be from an Olympus camera - anything that has the same connectors on - camera, MP3 player, etc lead will do). A.
