Question about Olympus SP-570UZ Digital Camera
I thought my usb connector cable had gone bad, which your rep said was rare but happens. I ordered a new cable from you guys, and it still is not turning the camera on to transfer photos as it always did before when I would connect to my PC. USB drives recognize everything else I use, camera turns on and off. I actually just had a service from you guys a few months ago... Please advise if there is some setting on the camera or something that I am not thinking of. Thanks!
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 cataloging program such as Picasa.

SOURCE: No usb port found
I also have a problem tranferring from my Olympus digital camera. I hope some one will be able to help. I am working on Windows XP SP1. When I first tried to transfer pictures from my Olympus when the computer was new,the pictures transferred through the USB port with no problem. I then added a printer to the USB port and worked fine. I added a Zip drive to the other USB Port and that also worked fine. When I went to transfer pictures again, I had to disconnect the Zip drive from the usb port and connect the camera to the port. It would not work. I checked device manager and it did not list the camera in that port but the Zip drive,even though I had disconnected the device. I restarted the computer with the camera connected to the USB port and still it did not work. Device Manager still listed the Zip drive in that USB Port. The transfer worked fine before I used the USB ports. It seems that it always recognizes the Zip Drive and not the camera. The Camera and drivers are listed in device manager but not in the USB Port. Anyone,please help.

I just spoke to Olympus Tech Support.
You have to download Olympus Master 2. (Their program is no longer called Camedia Master.)
At their main site, search for olympus master 2.

Be sure that you plug original Olympus USB cable directly into USB port on mother board (ussualy on the back side of PC) not on the front pannel hub and not into extention USB cable.

SOURCE: how do i charge my camera??
If your camera did not come with a plug-in wall type transformer, it may not have rechargeable batteries installed when new.
For using USB ports for such non-data uses, you may require a software patch (driver) to accomplish this. Your manual should tell you these things and if you don't have one, download a copy from the Olympus website. Look for a link to 'support,' then manuals.
