    Thanks, but I already tried that, the new driver I downloaded isn't compatible with XP Service Pack 3 and I don't know if its a good idea to uninstall this service pack.

The software will not upload on my windows 7 home


If you mean "install" instead of upload, then try installing using windows XP compatible environment.
Right click on the installer program and select PROPERTIES
select the COMPATIBILITY tab
tick RUN THE PROGRAM ...
select WINDOWS XP (SERVICE PACK 3)
click OK

If you mean "download", then try a different browser, or the link may be a dead link.

If you are just downloading the photos and movies from the camera, you can simply (with the camera off) remove the SD card and place it into a card reader on your computer. Please follow the normal practice of "ejecting" the card before removing it from the reader, or the reader from your computer.

Camera will not connect to computer to download pic.


This camera model may not connect to new operating systems such as Windows Vista due to its age and lack of support from Olympus. In order to download photos you will need to use a memory card reader to connect and download photos. Be sure to purchase a memory card reader that will accept the type of memory card you have. I believe this camera uses SmartMedia which is no longer used and a card reader will be harder to locate.

I have good news and bad news. The good news is: I can solve your problem! The bad news is: those 17 different types of card do not include yours... almost certainly a SDHC. You need to get a card reader that specifically says that it does SDHC. I've seen USB stick adapter ones for $2.00 in the "dollar store".

You should be able to find card readers at just about any electronics or office-supply store. Just make sure you get one compatible with SmartMedia cards. The brand, as well as whether it plugs directly into a USB port or uses a short cable, are matters of personal preference.

Need software to use me C-3030ZOOM for Windows XP


The camera is a standard serial and USB connect camera and what we Olympus recommends for XP users as well as their new software is to look into purchasing a smartmedia card reader that connects to USB port so that you are able to transfer images using the reader as opposed to connecting camera to PC. The camera connection is not truly XP compliant.

Hi! I have an older Olympus C-4000 Camedia Camera and am wondering if it's compatible with a 4 GB SanDisk SDHC memory card.


Unfortunately the only memory card that can be used in this camera is a smartmedia card. The largest smartmedia card available is a 128mb card.

Either use a Smartmedia reader, or download the D-340R driver (twain31.exe) from the Olympus America site.

The C-380L is the same camera as the D-340R

Is my MX/DX/DS series digital camera compatible with Windows XP?


No, these cameras are not compatible with Windows XP. We recommend using a memory card reader such as the DPC-R1 to read directly from your camera's SmartMedia card.
