You need a windows XP patch from Olympus. According to the website, this is an update to the CAMEDIA Master 2.5 software. You can find the D-340R patch in the very first page once you click on the link here. Good luck.

Fuji A370 incompatibility porblem when upgrade compauter from XP to windows 7


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. And the same procedure is likely to continue working in the future when you upgrade your computer or camera.

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

Problems downloading from camera using windows 7 - error message say windows XP required - is it possibel to upgrade software to be compatible with windows 7


If your OS is Win7 64 bit, then incompatibility must be occur because Windows XP use 32bit Operating System and driver software usually only special for each OS (x32 or x64). About upgrading the software, how will you upgrade while you can't even install the basic software in your PC ? The choice you have is find another driver that compatible with your OS, you can search via Google, and I hope you are lucky enough to get it available or even free to download.
If you still want to upgrade, then the Windows7 is the one to be upgraded so you can use XP Mode system. You must have Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate to run Windows XP Mode. You can visit microsoft.com for details.

Hope this help and be kind to rate please.

Picture project not detecting camera since installed windows 7, how do we download pictures now. camera is being detected by pc so it doesnt appear to be a hardware issue, nikon resource center say they...


You could try the folowings:

1) Run your picture project program under XP SP 2 'compatibilty mode'.

2) Run the picture project program in XP mode if your computer and version of Windows 7 allows it (eg. Professional or Ultimate versions but your computer processor will need to support 'hardware virtualization).

3) Run the program in a Virtual machine with XP installed: I would use Sun VirtualBox which is free and does not need hardware virtualisation (unlike windows 7 'native' XP mode or VPC2007).

As you can see, you do have some options to overcome Windows 7 shortcomings! Hope it helps.

Is another program trying to use the camera in whatever picture program you are using? windows 98 doesn't have built in photo taking software, so check the settings of what ever program you are using to make sure it is "looking" for the correct camera, if you can read korean handuri is a great solution.

windows 98 is no longer supported for microsoft, so your best solution would be to upgrade to a XP.

Need driver for this camera for windows 98


debra_s,

You'll have to explain what you want to do? If you want to download your images, you don't need a driver, just attach a Windows 98 compatible card reader to your USB port and download your pictures to your favorite photo manager. You should be able to attach your camera via USB, and if the USB drivers detect the camera's disk, then a new drive will appear your My Computer.

If you have Windows 98 Second Edition, you should be set to go, if you have Windows 98 First Edition (where it doesn't say Second Edition in the My Computer properties), you'll have a tougher time with the USB connections. It would be best to upgrade your machine, or find the Windows 98 SE upgrade from a friend.

The CD that came with the camera will have the necessary software for Windows 98 SE.

What have you tried to do? What isn't working? Let me know some details and I'll help you out.

Hope these ideas help. Clarify some things and I can give you a more narrow answer.
