    Hello guru

    When I open up My computer only have "Hard Disk Drives", "Devices with Removable Storage" (DVD/CD-RW Drive (D:) and "Other" (my bluetooth places).

    When i bought the camera it came with a CD Olympus Master which is loaded blah blah but what it seems is that it is the only way i can access my photos from the camera in that when i plug in the camera to the computer it immediately comes up with "do you want to launch Olympus Master?" - and i am limited with what i can then do... If I opt no then how else do i access what is on the computer?

Hi,

Open your "My Computer", the Olympus would be shown as an External Storage Device. Open it and look for the movie file which should have an .avi extension. Copy/paste or drag n drop to a folder in your PC.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi paekakariki,

    Copy and appreciate your postback with additional information.

    That being the case, I would venture that your concern is hinged on the PC recognizing the Olympus DigiCam as a USB device.

    Offhand, a quick temporary work around for your transfer concern is to use a memory card reader, pop in the memory of the DigiCam and copy/paste;

    Back to the Olympus, it is possible that:
    1. the USB cable would need replacement;
    2. either the camera's USB port and/or the PC's USB port is faulty. Sometime cleaning helps with the use of an electronic contact cleaner;
    3. the drivers have been corrupted which can be verified in the Device Manager. You can always do a clean install of the USB drivers by deleting/removing them. Upon reboot, Windows would auto-detect and auto-install.
    4. If you are using Vista, you may want to check for an update/patch from the motherboard manufacturer. Microsoft has acknowledge the issues with USB in Vista and has posted a fix here and here.

    You can also try your PC's USB ports with other USB devices such as a mouse, keyboard, flash drive or whatever USB peripherals are available.

    Would appreciate a post for any development(s) or lack of it.

I recommend you have a trial of YouTube video converter.

Now you can upload it successfully.

The best way to transfer is using a memory card through a generic USB card reader. Try not using the USB cord for a while.

File Transfer Error


Hi.

I recommend using a card reader available nearly everywhere.

Plug it into the PCs USB port. then it should show up as a drive. transfer the files and you're done. Don't forget to 'safely remove' the drive before unplugging it.

NIK0N coolpix l3 movie transfer


Hi:
When you transfer all the files, the movies should be transferred as well.
Open Windows Explorer to the folder you saved the files to.
Notice the file names by using either details or list in the view.
Other operating systems may differ slightly.
The movie files should be with .mov extension.
The jpeg or picture files should be saved to .jpg extension.
Some cameras will save to a different extension if the highest resolution is used, such as .tiff or other.

Movie Won't Transfer Over to My Computer


Well it took me over an hour to figure this one out. Loathingly I loaded the Canon software onto my computer. Then instead of using the card reader in my hard drive I used the USB cable that came with the camera. I downloaded the movie onto my hard drive through the USB cable and PRESTO, it played perfectly on my computer with no problem. Hope that helps.
