Re: device not ready
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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Best thing to do is to un-install and re-install the Olympus ib program. If problems exists to continue, you might want to consider installing another free and better Olympus program, the Olympus Viewer 2.
1. You should be able to transfer the pictures after connecting the camera to the PC. A removable USB device or SP800 labeled entry should be visible. 2. Use the Windows Explorer to copy the pictures.
Or you can use the installed Olympus ib software to copy them.
If the software is not installed any more, it still might be on the camera's internal memory (setup.exe) If not, The ib software you can find here and alternative and better Olympus Viewer software here.
The Olympus [ib] software is on the internal memory of the SP-800uz camera. It should gave a message tio the user to install it after the first initialization. Remove any placed SD / SDHC card from the camera. Check if the camera memory is detected on the computer as a Removeable USB Device. You may browse this device with the Windows Explorer and look for any setup.exe to install the Olympus [ib] software. As a (better) alternative, use the much more stable and less bloated free Olympus Viewer 2 software: http://support.olympus-imaging.com/ov2download/index/?Lang=ENU You have to give your cameras serial number to be able to download it.
You can download from any digital camara.Load the CD that came with the camara or obtain one if you can. You need the interface cable that is purchased seperately. You do not specify the camara spec so you will need to Google the" model and pc interface cable". If you have the cable then the next step is the camara driver which should be on your cd that came with the camara. Plug in the cable to the camara and to the USB port on the PC (make certain the camara is set to the Play position or PC). Windows will ask for the driver location. Insert the cd and continue. If windows does not see the driver you will need to locate it manualy from the cd or on line and download it to your desktop from the manufacturers web site. All camara companies have a support website for the drivers. Once the drivers are loaded then you need to switch the camara to the Play position so it can be seen by the computer. Go to the control panel in windows and select system then hardware then devices. If all went well you should see the camara listed as a device. Now you need the camara software or a picture viewer from the web. Here is the web kocation http://en.kioskea.net/telecharger/telecharger-653-picture-viewer
If all went properly 1. driver 2. picture software then you should be all set to handle your pictures. Good Luck Phil firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
The Olympus website does not have any downloads for this model. But My brother has the exact same camera. I could get a copy of his software for you. (I think it's called Olympus Master)., I just need a way to send it to you.... Do you know how to use FTP software??
I had the same problem trying to transfer pics from my camera. The error message is "The Device is not Ready." I got mad when I read the "solution" from the "plumber" that said to read the directions. DUH!. Now for the real solution... and reading the directions won't help. Your PC is trying to find the camera connected to a specific drive. In my case it was the "E" drive which was already in use, mapped to a shared drive. Once I disconnected that drive it fixed my problem. To disconnect, highlight the drive, go to Tools and Disconnect Network Drive. Reboot the PC and plug the camera in before booting back up. (If you have hardware connected to the drive, right mouse click on the drive and eject.)
your memory card has a virus! try formatting using camera. make it a habit that whenever you reinsert the memory card in your camera format it first before taking shots, this will erase everything including virus! you may also try another memory card. Check also your pc, are you sure you didnt install any program recently? Some program installed may have conflict with another program like in your case.
