I had the same problem trying to transfer pics from my camera. The error message is "The Device is not Ready." I got mad when I read the "solution" from the "plumber" that said to read the directions. DUH!. Now for the real solution... and reading the directions won't help. Your PC is trying to find the camera connected to a specific drive. In my case it was the "E" drive which was already in use, mapped to a shared drive. Once I disconnected that drive it fixed my problem. To disconnect, highlight the drive, go to Tools and Disconnect Network Drive. Reboot the PC and plug the camera in before booting back up. (If you have hardware connected to the drive, right mouse click on the drive and eject.)

Have you read through the instructions carefully? Sometimes there is a process you need to follow to the letter to connect to pc's. Also read your camera instructions, you may need to do something specific. I can't give you specific instructions as every camera is different.

Device not ready


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 such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

When initializing the camera, there is nothing (no program) to pull up on the computer.


The Olympus [ib] software is on the internal memory of the SP-800uz camera. It should gave a message tio the user to install it after the first initialization. Remove any placed SD / SDHC card from the camera. Check if the camera memory is detected on the computer as a Removeable USB Device.
You may browse this device with the Windows Explorer and look for any setup.exe to install the Olympus [ib] software. As a (better) alternative, use the much more stable and less bloated free Olympus Viewer 2 software: http://support.olympus-imaging.com/ov2download/index/?Lang=ENU
You have to give your cameras serial number to be able to download it.

Device not ready


CNET's review states that this camera connects to USB, but no mention is made of it being compatible with USB2. Theoretically it should be compatible since USB2 ports are supposed to be backwards compatible with USB 1.1. Yet I have other USB 1.1 devices which will cause "device not ready" error messages when I try to connect them to a USB2 port. Interestingly, the CNET article doesn't list Windows XP as a compatible OS. Another person posted that he received the same error message when trying to connect his camera to his 64-bit XP computer.

In any event, Largan's web site doesn't make any mention of them producing complete cameras -- only camera components. Perhaps their foray into the digital camera market was less than successful.

So, while this isn't truly a solution post, perhaps it may point you in the right direction as to possible causes of the device not ready error message.

I can't transfer the images from my olympus master 2 Fe-270 to my pc, it says the device is not ready. what's the problem?


Make sure the camera is on and pc is selected on the camera screen when connected to the computer. You will need to have PC highlighted and select ok on the camera as this starts the camera and computer to communicate. Once communication established the LCD screen of the camera goes dark and the computer should generate a removable disk drive. Check the System Tray (lower right corner beside the PC time) for Safely Remove Hardware. When you click on it, it should read "Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device Drive ?:" If you dont see that, then check the Device Manager to see if the camera is recognized as USB Mass Storage Device. The camera uses the driver usbstor.

I'm needing a driver for my FE-280


I went to Olymbus website to find the driver for the FE-280 Digital camera and it states, no software availble at this time.

They show the camera on the website and I know there is a driver for it, but they are not supplying the consumer with it. Bad choice for Olympus.

I have given you some information and links below:

http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/FE-280%20Instruction%20Manual.pdf

This is the manual for your camera.
Go page 45 at the very bottom. Using a New Card


The FE-280 does not recognize my memory card. What can I do?
First, refer to the xD-Picture Card™ Compatibility Chart to verify that the card is supported in your model. If the card is not supported, return it to the store where you purchased it.
The FE-280 may not recognize non-Olympus brand media or a card that has been formatted on another device, such as a card reader or personal computer. As a general rule, xD-Picture Card media should only be formatted in the camera. Card readers should only be used to copy files from the memory card to an external device.
You may be able to use the card if you format it in the camera.
Warning: Formatting a media card will delete all content on the card.


When I put an xD-Picture Card™ flash memory card into my camera and turn it on, I get a “Card Error” message. What can I do?
This message occurs when the camera is unable to recognize the memory card or when an attempt to format a card fails.
If you see this message after inserting a brand new card, refer to the xD-Picture Card Compatibility Chart to verify that the card is supported in your model. If the card is not supported, return it to the store where you purchased it.
If the card is supported, it may need to be cleaned. Wipe the gold contacts of the card with alcohol using a soft cloth or tissue. When the contacts are dry, insert the card and turn the camera on.
If the Card Error message still appears, remove the card and insert a different supported card into the camera. If the camera reads the second card, then the camera is working properly and the problem lies with the original card.
You may be able to use the card if you format it in the camera.
Warning: Formatting a media card will delete all content on the card.
If you receive this error message after a failed attempt to format the memory card, the card may be defective. For assistance, contact Olympus’ Customer Service and Repair Center using any of the following methods:
Phone: 800-622-6372


http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/OM_UpdateSoftware.asp
This is about updating the olympus Master Software.

If I can do anything else for you let me know
