Question about Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera

1 Answer

How do I erase ALL my pictures?

I have an Olympus FE 280 & usually when I upload the pics to my pc it gives me the option to erase them all. This time it didn't happen & I can't get clear instructions in the guide.

Also- what are the best settings for taking pics of sports?

Thanks in advance!

When you connect your camera to the computer it should appear as an external hard drive on your desktop (as well as start up your photo handling software).  At the desktop level you should be able to open the camera as a drive and navigate the folders to the photos.  Then you can delete them the same way you would delete any file and empty the trash before you unmount the camera from the desktop..  Sports are so variable that one group of settings would not work satisfactorily for all.

    If you do not want to connect your camera to the computer and use it as a hard drive to erase your pictures as a group you have to do them one at a time on the camera.  The descriptions in ( ) below are for the symbols on the camera buttons that I cannot reproduce here.

    To erase pictures:
    a. Press the <(flower) and >(lightning) buttons to display the picture you want

    to erase.

    b. Press the (screen/trash) button.
    c. Press the ^(+/-)(printer) button, select [YES], and press OK.

Memory card showing 'no image' after trying to upload

Sounds like you didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function when you disconnected the USB cable. This can corrupt the card and even the camera. You could try using a separate card reader to download the pics from the card. If that works, and the pics are safely downloaded, then you should format the card in the camera to erase and optimize it. If it doesn't work, take the card to a Walmart that has a Kodak Picture Kiosk and it should be able to read your card. You can print the pics or even make a cd of them. Then, format the card in the camera.

You may try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your Olympus camera, here are some for your options.

You need to install olympus master 2 driver to your dell laptop then connect your camera using USB to your laptop...I suppose you have these driver and usb connector with your camera package.
You may use CARD READER if you have, place your memory card into it then connect to your laptop using USB...
