I can't upload photos onto my computer/laptop

This is the first time this has ever happened to me, but i went to go and put photos from my olympus camera to my laptop and the first dozen or so out of 60 worked and the rest of them wouln't work. It came up with a little sign saying that it couldn't be copied and to skip and try the next one and I did so but it wouldnt take to any of them at all. At the end it said 'see detailed error information' so I clicked that and another sign popped up saying 'the following problem occured while copying pictures: the parameter is incorrect'. I tried to upload the pictures on another computer and the same thing occured. I have no idea what this means or what a 'parameter' is or how to fix it without losing my pictures on my camera. Could somebody please help me in talking me through how I can fix it or if I should just delete the photos on my camera and hope it won't happen again and I just can't have those ones or something please! Thank you very much! Danni Hello! I really want to put pictures onto the computer because i have pictures of friends which i miss and i just want to because i have been trying for a very long time now and i never seem to put them on because it does not let me for some reason. Maybe im doing it wrong! I dont know. But, its off my fone. x

Sounds like your card may have become corrupted. Try another card and if it uploads normally, the original card is bad. There are some programs that will allow you to recover the data, but after that...lose the card and use another.

Re: I can't upload photos onto my computer/laptop

It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and these likely all are software issues. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see the following post, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos:

Note that card readers are also extremely inexpensive, available at some places for less than $2 online with shipping. For example, this company is reputable, but their free shipping comes from Hong Kong and may take up to three weeks. But you can get a good $2 card reader from them, payable via Paypal:

If you don't feel comfortable with a $2 card reader, or can't wait three week, there's always Amazon. Good inexpensive card readers can be found there for under $6.

My camileo uploader will not upload , all files download onto the PC but when i press upload nothing happens , any ideas ?

Are you sure you did install the software that came with your camera? Without any software, your computer can't; even see there is a camera connected. Let alone get any file from it.
If you had the software on the computer, remove it and try to reinstall it. While installing, the correct driver(s) will be installed on your computer too.

I want the date to print on each one of the pictures I take but cannot find it in the manual.

The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Software is unable to find Olympus Digital camera connected to USB port

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.

Kodak c1450 camera won't upload photos to my computer

Hello, Kodak has no control over your cameras' ability to upload your photos to your PC ! Unless you are talking about their online photo storage. If you are having problems transferring your pics to your PC and are using Kodak software try to reinstall the program and see if that works, I don't think your camera is junk.

Which size of adapter to use to fit it to Nikon D300?

Nikon bodies are thicker than Olympus bodies, thus while Nikon lenses can be made to focus to infinity when mounted onto an Olympus body, an Olympus lens will not focus to infinity were it mounted onto a Nikon body. Thus, no one makes an adapter to fit an Olympus lens onto a Nikon body.
