Question about Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Olympus FE-170 won't connect to my PC

When I connect the USB lead the usual screen comes up on the PC as drive H but then starts to go off & on, camera light flashing red. A message then comes up saying that drive H cannot be found. My other camera connects OK. I suspect the camera is faulty, do you agree?

Hi there
Possibly not, try another camera lead in a different USB port.
If its the same format the camera card and try again, if you still get the same result, the camera is faulty.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

When i plugged my olympus FE-170 to my computer my camera starts to show this " PC, Easy Print and Custom Print" but when i choose one of those it will suddenly be not recognized.. can you help me?


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.

MY Olympus fe-170 has a broker screen, how can I get my pictures off of my camera?


Connect this to your computer via USB ..and wait.
Then press OK button on the camrea onece (this will "blindly" accept connection to the PC MODE)..
In a few seconds you will have a Removable Drive available in My Computer folder (Windows) or you will see iut on the desktop (Mac) ... Copy your pictures out of the DCIM folder to your computer ;-) ..
Or .. replace a screen ... I have a "parts-out" FE-170 with a good screen - easy to replace ... write back if you want it kriscichon@hotrmail.com

My fe 310 didnt recognize by my computer


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. The camera uses the driver usbstor.
