Can't backup photos onto cds

Even after upgrading my Olympus Master software, I still am not able to copy pictures onto a cd.  I've looked in the Advanced Manual and see no help with the software.  It has been a pain to make photo cds for people...I've had to backup to the desktop then transfer to another photo software to edit and burn...way too time consuming!!  There has to be a better way!  I would like to be able to select which pictures go on the disc also rather than the group downloaded from a particular day.

My jpeg files stored in Olympus Master 2 and Olympus Viewer 3 file management software will not display pictues to prevue or edit. The JPEG files show the same MB size in properties I don't believe

Both are just the programs to put the pictures on the computer and edit the pictures. The pictures should be on the computer.
Try to find the folders, where the programmes did store the jpegs. Or if you shoot RAW, also the RAW files.
Copy all the pictures in these folders to a different drive. The best is an external USB drive. Only after you are sure you did copy (do NOT MOVE the pictures but COPY because move will delete the originals) all the pictures to a safe place, start finding out, what could be wrong with the Olympus software.

For lots of camera's you can chose same file size, but you are right I would not trust that.
Even when you have a very good computer, with a very good hard drive, please do make backups regularly. And actually one backup is no backup. Always try to have two backups on two different media.

Need more help? just let me know.

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.

Pictures on Internal Memory

Select Backup from the Setup menu to copy pictures from the internal memory to a memory card. This is a copy, not a move, leaving internal memory untouched. It also does not affect any favorites.

Use a card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop. Then use any photo program on your computer to edit or arrange them.

Will I loose photos or captions when upgrading EASYSHARE SOFTWARE

First of all.
You should always backup your data onto CD/DVD/memory stick or other external device !
And that does include photos.
You will not loose any data when you upgrade.
My personal opion is:
Download "Picasa 3" (free from google)
It is the best free program for non pros.
You can then import all your saved photos

Don't want to lose photos.. not sure of the next step ??

Hi, Jacqui.
You are correct, if you format you loose all your pictures. When itsays "clean" I think it means to delete some pictures, the phrasechanges from camera maker to camera maker so unless it says it does not have a card or it can't read the card when there is one in there, it's probably not that the card is dirty.

For the official Olympus manual instructions...
Just in case you did not get the manual, you can download it from here, and for the photo download look in page 46 - 49

My version of it...

What you have to do is connect the camera to a computer using the USB cable that came with the camera (one that fits to the side of the camera and has a square connector on the other side) with Windows 2000 or newer or a Mac. You can use the software (already installed on the computer) to download (copy) to the computer the photos, or you can do it without installing it. When you plug it in the first time it will take about 30 seconds to a minute for it to recognize the camera, a little pop-up will tell you when it's ready. Maybe even a window will come up asking you what to do, if you have XP or vista it will even ask you if you want to copy the photos it found to your computer... pick that one. After you do that and it shows it copying, you should better make sure it copied them to your computer... disconnect the camera (use the little icon on the bottom taskbar that says "safely Remove Hardware" or "Stop USB Mass Storage Dev" when you are top of it), and look for the pictures; the most likely place to find them is on your "user"'s documents, and in pictures. If you used the software, then look where ever you picked for when you installed.

I still recommend taking a stab at the manual so you get all the details and pictures.

I hope this helps you out. And remember, make sure you have the pictures before deleting or formating...and Always make a CD backup... I lost a lot of pics once when my Laptop got stolen, and did not have any backup of them... grrrr! :-)
