I'll assume you mean you want to download the images from the camera.
1. Install any software that came with your camera. No software? please, see method 2.
2. Update the software (online) if required.
3. Connect your camera to your computer using the (hopefully) supplied cable that came with your camera. No cable? please, see method 2.
4. The camera software should start.
5. Follow the prompts to transfer your images.
1. Remove the storage card from the camera.
2. Plug the storage card into your computer.
3. Select "Open Folder to view Files" once the card is recognized by Windows.
4. Look inside the "DCIM" folder. There'll be another folder inside it.
5. Look in that folder for files that start with IMG. They are your images.
6. Cut, Copy &/or paste them wherever you'd like.

If you mean that, even when you connected the Olympus USB cable correctly, the computer does not recognize the camera? If so, connect the camera to another computer to check if the camera or usb cable or the original computer is causing the problem. Often the computer does recognize the camera as a Removeable USB Device. You can see that when using e.g. the Windows Explorer. If the problem is only, that the installed Olympus software is not started, when connecting the camera to the computer, check the settings of the [ib] software by running it manually. Otherwise re-install the [ib] software.
The problem is that you need to install the software before you connect the camera for the computer to auto recognize it.
If you dont have a disk that came with the camera to install before connecting the usb cord, go to the internet and search for the manufacturers website and download your software instead.
Download the software to your computer and follow the prompts for installing it. Then connect your usb cable. if the computer does not auto recognize the camera after the softwares been installed then you have a problem.
Does the camera show up as a removable drive on my computer? You do not need some software to do it like most people think. If the camera is not recognized at all and does not show up under my computer then let me know.
The computer communicates with cameras with photo softwares required installation. Photo software installed has to be compartible with the brand camera. Generic photo softwares installed on the computer can recognise any built-in cameras, camera connection attachements. Once, a photo software has been click opened, the features fucntionalities of capturing snap shots, editing, and saving are made possible from any available camera devcies. Built-in computer cameras have already installed softwares locatable on the menu programs task bars.
A separate camera used to acquire photos elswhere requires connections to the computer from which manipulations become possible. Any already existing photo media softwares would recognise to intergrate a camera connection. For the camera to function while connected to a computer would require the feature functions of an opened photo editing program.
A computer built-in camera can perform on the network only by opening the photo windows software provided on the web. The internet web cam for example provides the opportunity to search and locate any cameras attached to the computer for network communications. Such an instance easily recognises the built-in computer camera. A separate camera would require connection compartibilities to the computer systems, and possibly the network type. A network that provides photo camera softwares incompartible to the cameras connected to the computer would require generic softwares installations for communcations to take place between camera, computer, and a network of computers.
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.
First, I need to ask the dumb questions:
1. Are both computers running XP?
2. When you connect the camera, do you turn the camera on?
3. Do other USB devices work when connected to the same
USB PORTS you are using to connect the camera?
Ok, since the camera is not recognized at all on both computers, we can
pretty much disregard USB PORT failure, but just in case, try different
USB PORTS on both, please.
Most if not all cameras should be recognized as mass storage devices
just by connecting them to USB PORT on computer, and should be visible
as a new drive in MY COMPUTER icon.
Maybe your bundled USB CABLE is not working, or this is one camera that
insists on using the bunbled software package that came with the
Last thing to try is to buy a multi-card reader/writer and put the memory card in there. That has to work!
