Question about Olympus Camedia C-450 Zoom Digital Camera

Camera memory card errors/computer doesn't recognize

My Olympus C-450 digital camera is driving me batty! First, when taking a photo the camera light flashed red and froze, then claimed the memory card needed reformatting and consequently lost all my pictures. I sent it to Olympus for repair and nothing was wrong with it. I now have it back and I am having similar problems, I took 60 pics today, then it started flashing red and green lights. I tried to load my pics onto computer but either the computer (Mac) doesn't recognise it or wants to repair it. When I turn the camera on I see three pics, then a picture error. I am at my wits end! Should I give up on it or buy a new memory card? There is obviously something wrong somewhere and I am disappointed that I went through all that hassle posting it to Olympus!! Could clever bod please help? Thanks in advance!

Can you get a memory card reader that works for a Mac? If so then loading pic's to the 'puter through that route Flashing red and green lights have a meaning- what does the manual say?[Check the more comprehensive manual on the Software disk] You could buy[or borrow] another card- nothing wrong with having more that one. Also try the card in another camera and a fresh card in yours[Take it a photo shop to try this]

How do i download sofware Olympus camera


Do you really want the Olympus software when there are better options available?

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 ).

I bought my daughter a Olympus E450 but have trouble using it when I take picture I get flashing green light on the display and it either will not take picture or takes ages.


Check that your digital camera is not in playback or review mode.
Make sure the memory card is in the camera and that the card is properly formatted.
The Memory Card may be full. Download the images to the computer or delete some to make way for new photos.
Check the charge on the batteries. Replace if necessary.
Have you been using the flash? It may be recharging. When it is recharged, the camera will be ready to take photos again.

What is the best free program to recover deleted pictures from Olympus FE-25 camera?


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
You can then recover photos from camera by downloading this photo recovery software

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Camera flashes 'write protect' when I try to take photos. It makes a tone noise. It wont take photos.


Try to remove the memory card and flip the switch to the other non-write protect mode.

Are images actually being saved to the card, not just to the camera's internal memory ? Also, is the card the correct size for the camera ? Some cameras cannot cope with cards greater than 8 or 16 - check the manual.
