just to know exactly what you need:

Windows xp sp2: connect you camera, open windows explorer and a new folder in my computer will be present called 'removable disk'.

You can open that folder and copy the pictures to you picture folder in my documents.

If you need software to edit pictures there are lots of them out there: paint shop pro, googles picasa2 etc.

I prefer gimp my self, it is open source and works very well. Almost like adope photoshop and it is totally free here is a movie about gimp:

think you can find it on

You will need to source the correct software so as to connect the camera to the PC. If it is for transfering photos use the card reader directly to be put into the PC and transferred.

I can't figure this out. I am computer dumb and my husband always did this stuff for me but he died last year.I am trying to get the photos I took into my laptop so I can send them.

Ok this is an easy one.. You need to get a USB cable and software. The download link below, is for the driver, you install this Driver, as administrator, right click, install .exe and select run as Administrator
Now after you install the software you plug in the camera to the PC, via the USB port, (any) and then turn the camera on, it should be detected and then you run the software and "Get" you pictures. Also to help i recommend you get a Picture resizer, and use it to make the pictures the right size to send.. Link below, get it and down load and install, like before, then when you wish to resize a picture, you right click, and select resize.. follow instruction, then you can "Attach" the Picture to an Email.
If you don't have the cable etc. get one from say below to give you the idea.

Hey peek5544,
It sounds to me like you don't have the right drivers installed on your computer that support this camera. I have included a link to the manufacturer where you should be able to download what you need. I hope this helps!

You have to edit the file:


You'll have to remove two semicolons.

The section:
remove this semicolon=>;%MfgOlympus%=ModelsOlympus

Must become:


The section:
remove this semicolon=>;%USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100.Device%=Olympus,
must become:
%USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100.Device%=Olympus, USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100

After this, if you have already the Olympus C-xxxx in your Device Manager,
uninstall it and run again the new hardware wizard. Let Windows XP find the
correct driver. Windows will attempt to frighten you with a catastrophe
prophecy. Just ignore it and go on (it works perfectly).
You're done. Now your Windows XP will see your Olympus C-XXXX Zoom
without any additional software.

I have an OLYMPUS Camedia C-3000 Zoom but I can not find the software to run it on my computer. Can I download it from the web?

I have searched and searched as well. At the end I settled on using a Memory Card Reader to transfer the images to my computer.

I'll advise the same. Card Readers are now available for less than 5 pounds/dollars/euros.

I also have a c-3000 zoom and tried to use it with my vista laptop for the first time (worked fine for years on xp with the software). I got an error message saying something along the lines of "Your camera is too old to work with Vista" (not the exact wording). I bought an external card reader, and you should probably do the same.
