I assume you want to download pictures from your camera to your computer through your USB cable instead of by transferring your memory card. Actually, most people prefer to use the memory card method, I know I do. The camera/USB method will not work unless you install the camera software to your computer and it must be compatible. Many of the camera software is not compatible with some versions of Vista, for example.

What make and model camera? If it uses a memory card of some type, 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). 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 ).
ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

Go get a memory card. Insert it into the camera and go into the menu and find "copy" for the option to copy the internal memory to the memory card. Then, you can download from the card instead of the internal memory.
There are issue with usb port, virus and perfomance.
1. Try using other port. If you using front panel(pc) port, then use back panel usb port. 2. If problem, try change your cable connection(cable problem) 3.Try wait around one minute to get your pc/laptop properly connectd to your camera.

Blinking light means your computer still in process reading your data from memory card. Higher capacity of memory card would make the computer need longer time to read it. Just be patient and don't unplug the USB cable. If you think its too long, then you can unplug the cable data, put off the memory card and open in via card reader so you can download your pictures to PC.
I hope its usb cable my have some problem..... try to purchase a new car reader to insert memory card into it and plug it to pc via usb port..... then also if you face same problem then check you usb port drives and install them......... to rectify this problem.... some times firewall also will not accept usb so switch off firewalls while plug in device cable........
well the quickest way if you dont have the cable is to insert the card into a card reader that connects to your pc via a USB port. Reader costs about $10 and is simple to use and does not have all the hassles of not being recognised by the operating system like the camera occasionaly will. Any pics in camera memory can be transferred to the card via the internal menu
How do I download images from the camera to view on my computer?
With the camera turned off, connect the USB cable to the PC and plug the smaller end into the camera. The camera will turn on and display the selection screen for USB. Use the arrow keys to select the PC option and then press the OK button. The camera will be recognized by the computer as a removable drive. There are instructions available at our web site (http://www.olympusamerica.com/download). For editing and managing image files with a PC, install the Olympus Master 1.0 software from the supplied CD-ROM. After installing the software, connect your camera to the PC via the USB cable provided.
