Question about Olympus Stylus 790SW Digital Camera

Card reader-wont work! help :(

I have the olympus stylus 790SW and dropped it the other day but it was barely a fall. The camera turns on ok but wont read the photo card. It does take pictures but only saves to the internal memory. When i would take a picture with the card in ..it wont let me take a picture and it will say "card error". However the card itself seems ok because i was able to put it in my photo printer and upload them on it and onto my computer. i was trying to figure out whats wrong?????? helpp!!! :(

My mac isn't recognizing my Olympus Stylus 790 when I connect it via USB.


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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

How do I tell if my Olympus 790SW is damaged or if the battery needs replaced?


Unfortuneately when water enters the camera this is usually a one way ticket, I recommend you remove the memory card to save your pictures, the liquid has already started eating into the ic pins eventually sending the camera into cascade failure that can take days, weeks, and months before the full extent is known. I recommend you consider replacing the camera.
