Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera
Even when camera IS connected the Olympus master 2 program says CAMERA NOT CONNECTED. I can't upload photos to computer
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 the Olympus one or the free program Picasa.

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.

Make sure the camera is on and pc is selected on the camera screen when connected to the computer. You will need to have PC highlighted and select ok on the camera as this starts the camera and computer to communicate. Once communication established the LCD screen of the camera goes dark and the computer should generate a removable disk drive. Check the System Tray (lower right corner beside the PC time) for Safely Remove Hardware. When you click on it, it should read "Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device Drive ?:" If you dont see that, then check the Device Manager to see if the camera is recognized as USB Mass Storage Device. Sounds like you may need to reinstall the device driver for the camera. The camera uses the driver usbstor.
