It could be that your computer sees your new camera as your old one.

Just double click on the icon and open any folders to see if there's any photo's in there. If so, you're sorted.

If not, look in "My computer" for another hard drive or flash drive named Olympus. If so click on the icon, and open any folders. If there's photo's there, again you're sorted.

Finally, uninstall your old Olympus software (Make sure you have the disk first, just in case) an then install the software you got with the new camera.

To move them to your PC, Edit - select all - copy (From your camera)
Go to your PC folder - Edit - Paste. When you've copied your files successfully. Go back to your Camera folder, select all - delete. (If you want to remove them, make room on your card).

Bet your using a 4GB or larger card, and also that your computer is more than a few years old (unlike your grandma's newer machine). If so, the problem is that the card reader on your computer was meant for only standard SD cards (2GB ore less), and not the high capacity SDHC cards (like your 4GB card). This is no problem, as very inexpensive USB thumb drive card readers are widely available. You can get one for only a few dollars on Amazon. They're also available at your local store in the camera department, but for a somewhat higher price. Just make sure that from wherever you purchase that the reader is stated capable of reading SDHC (some of the older ones can't).

1. Stop trying to connect your camera to the computer. Obviously, this is only giving you problems. 2. Get a card reader. Use it to download your pictures from now on. 3. When removing anything (camera, card reader, etc.) from a USB port on your computer, always use the "safely remove hardware" function.

Another way is to purchase a USB memory card reader, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into the USB card reader. Then connect the USB card reader into the USB port of your computer, the computer will see it as an external memory card. You can view the contents of the memory card and copy the photo files to the computer.

My Olympus FE-170 won't upload pictures.



Format your camera's internal memory and also format any memory cards you insert.
Use a program called Recover4All to see exactly what is in your camera's internal memory.
Then insert a memory formatted memory card and take some pictures. see if they will upload.

Dc-t50 won't transfer pictures onto my computer


Hey roboticgirl,
What is most likely causing this are the drivers that run the included software have either been accidentally deleted or they need to be updated. I would reinstall the software that came with the camera, or you could purchase a card reader and upload your pictures to your computer that way which should not require any drivers other than the ones in your operating system. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
