Question about Cameras
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.

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.
