I have an Olympus Stylus 850 SW. It takes

I have an Olympus Stylus 850 SW. It takes pictures fine. I have a new computer with Win 2003. I can't find original olympus s/w for downloading pix... but have Zoombrowser EX. Z does not recognize my olympus's memory card. When I turn on the camera I get the option to do pc/custom print - but then it says "Battery Empty" - however, if I unplug usb cable... battery shows full. How do I get these pix off the camera?

Consider 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.

Displayed (write protect) how this is short it can't get the pictures, pls help me. Thanks


Perhaps you (accidentally) switched the card to lock? or pressed the write protect button for some pictures?
Make sure the lock switch on the card is in the up position like on the picture:

USB cord (for Olympus Stylus 790) not recognized on computer


Hello :

The problem is not with the cord . But it's with the computer .

I'll give a solution assuming that you are using [ Windows XP ] as an Operating system . This can also go with [ Win 7 or Win Vista ] .

...................


1: Go to start


2: Go to all programs


3: Go to accessories .


4: Go to system tools .

5: Click on [ restore ]

Now you will see many restoring points . Try to remember which point or time the ( Olympus Stylus ) was working fine .

6: You need to restore your system to that point or time .

7: The system will restore itself to the point you chose and will reboot .

8:After rebooting plug in your Camera USB cable to try if that worked or not . It should work . If not , then the problem is with the Camera . For that you need to reset the Camera and try again .
If that didn't help , then there must be a hardware failure with the camera and it needs to be serviced .

Please don't forget to rate !

good luck .
