Hi There,
Generally you can't copy software from machine to machine in this way even if the operating system is the same.
.
You will need to find the disk the software originally came on and run the install process again. If you can't find your disk you may be able to download the software from the camera manufactures web site.

Of course you can copy your pictures from machine to machine but the software itself will need to be installed.

I have a PB netbook and it says to backup its programs by copying to a dvd but the netbook does not have a dvd rewriter.I have an external hard drive but the computers software does not allow this way...


The best solution would be to network your netbook with another computer that has a DVD drive built into it. You can then share that drive with the netbook and use it to back up the programs. To share it go to the computer with the drive in it and right click the drive.

Click properties

Click the sharing tab

click share this folder and set the share name as E

Now on the netbook go under My Network Places for XP or Network and Sharing Center for Vista/Windows 7 and you should see the DVD drive there.

I got a Olympus Camedia D-360L camera, but drivers are for W98...and have a brand new computer with Windows Vista and have been unable to find the drivers. Would you help me out with it?


If your camera driver is is Windows 98 and your trying VISTA, you probably now own a rock. Vista don't like noone. If it can't autofind for software, try XP

Have upgraded to Windows XP. Do I require new Camedia software as Camedia Master 2.0 version that I have with my Olympus C-3030 Zoom will not install. Thanks - Jamie Gardner


The camera is a standard connect camera and what we recommend for XP and Vista users is to look into purchasing a smartmedia card reader that connects to USB port so that you are able to transfer images using the reader as opposed to connecting camera to PC. The camera connection is not XP or Vista compliant.

Olympus C-3000 download Help


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.

SP 350


The answer to your problem might lie with the OS you are using. For whatever reason, when Microsoft brought out Vista it broke a lot of old programs and devices that worked perfectly fine. Why backwards compatability is beyond Microsoft, I don't know, but its an unfortunate circumstance.
Here is a link to Olympus' website, and a direct link to the SP-350 download page -
http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/software_results.asp?id=1188&os=w
I'm not sure if the drivers on the page are for Vista, its very vague but this is the first place to start.
Good luck!
