The first thing is unplugg the camera and then uninstall the camera drivers.Now again install the driver and make sure the camera is not pluged in.Once you finish installing the camera drivers you can then plug it in.See if this helps or else please proceed to next steps.

Try connecting your camera to another USB port. Using one port all the time to connect and disconnect USB items a port can develop a range of files associated with configuring the USB connection. Some of these files might actually have been from your camera connected before, or some of these configurations could be from other USB items you connect to this port. Changing ports can often lead to an immediate good connection simply because ther are no conflicting configuration files.

THIS IS A BIG ONE. This is the last thing to do. Before you try this process, please complete a full back up of your system. This is important as the next step can have side effects you did not entirely expect. AND Second, you might need your XP Install Disk (not in all cases). What this process is about is renewing all hardware/software configurations relating to USB connections.

Here is what you do:
1. Right click MY COMPUTER
3. Select HARDWARE
6. Right click on each USB CONTROLLER and select Uninstall
7. Uninstall all entries
8. Reboot your computer
9. As your computer re-boots it will reinstall all USB connections it detects

THEN, when all other USB items have been configured and connected by the system, you then should try connecting your USB camera

If these suggestions are implemented and you are still have connection difficulties with your computer, there are several other things to try. If you have another XP Computer you should try connecting your camera to another computer to see if the problem is a camera problem or not. If it still has this problem with the next computer, it maybe be a fault of the player.

IF YOU HAVE COMPLETED ALL the above mentioned and still have a problem, you should next contact the seller of this machine for further instructions of what to do next.

Please don't forget to rate the solution.

I have a SP-800UZ olympus and for a whole year i could transfer my pics with no problem to the pc. Now i cannot...the ib program does not recognize the files. Whats wrong?

Can you view the pictures in the camera directly? Are the pictures on internal memory or on placed SD card? If the pictures are NOT shown within the camera or when you put in a SD card and your pictures are on internal memory... you can change the menu settings accordingly. If pictures are not shown in the camera, you might want to try the camera Data Repair option: Manual page 41. Check if the camera is seen by the computer as USB Removeable device. You can also manually transfer the pictures with e.g. the Windows Explorer.

When i connect the camera to the computer, the pictures not showing up in the events or any other section. i want to store it on a flash drive and i cant get it store.

If the camera is recognized by your computer (as a Removeable USB device) and if you are using the Olympus [ib] software, the probable cause is Olympus [ib] software related. You can try to repair the created picture database using the Data Repair option in the camera menu (see the manual page 41).
An alternative is to use a SD / SDHC card to put your pictures on and transfer them using the card reader in the computer. It is also possible to transfer taken pictures from the cameras internal memory to a placed SD / SDHC card in the camera (see the manual page 41).

My laptop doesnt recognize fe-280 olymous

Unisntall the software that came with the camera and reinstall them. If the computer asks for drivers, insert the cd that came along the camera and install the drivers. Alternately, you can use your laptop's card reader port to transfer pictures. Just take out the memory card from the cam and put it in the card reader slot. Have any questions, write back.

I have 3 camedia cards for olympus d-450 zoom and need to know how to the images to my dell pc

If you have the latest driver downloaded so your pc can recognize the camera, first run the pic transfer program, then turn on camera, then lastly connect camera to pc via usb cable. Usually as soon as you plug in the camera it should ask if you want to transfer pictures. If it doesn't ask, then the driver probably needs to be updated or software needs to be reinstalled and pc restarted.

No pictures found in camera

The computer recognizes the camera as removable drive. Check "My Computer" for a drive that you haven't seen before. this will be your camera, and the files should be accessable. Failing that, your computer may not recognize the camera at all. The problem then, is in the computer's software.
