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 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.

Connect Olympus camera to laptop with USB cable provided, turn the camera on and open "Computer" in Window explorer or Computer. You should see the new removable disk, click on it and you will probably see one subdirectory and one sub-sub drectory, something like 100OLYMP, open it up and you should see jpg files in your camera. The light will blink for some time and then stop. You should then be able to select the files and transfer them to your folder on the hard drive.
When you first turn on the camera you could check to see in Device Manager, under Portable Devices, if your camera is recognized and whether everything is OK with your driver.
If you have a card reader you can also try to read the card from the laptop.
Hope it works!

it would appear that the computer is seeing the camera incorrectly... the camera should be recognized as usb mass storage device and uses the driver usbstor

Do you have Windows Live Photo Gallery? It comes with Windows 7, but if not you can download it here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-live/photo-gallery-get-started
You can also try and select the videos you want using the file download module Windows displays when a new device is plugged in. If that doesn't work, try
I have had video issues with my Olympus TOUGH (could not delete them from the camera) which turned out to be a formatting problem with the memory card.
