It sounds like you already know better than to reformat the card whether on the camera on on the computer, for you will for sure loose all the pictures. A couple of steps you can try;
- try another card
- try using the cable that came with the camera to connect the camera to the computer, this will at least enable you to get those pictures saved before loosing them
- try a different card reader, while they do seem fairly simple I've encountered some work for some cards better than others. it can be a cheap one, just another one.
- make sure your battery is fully charged and that the camera was stored in a dry place (humidity has been known to start wreaking havoc in the internal workings of a digital camera, even the humidity from a warm closet/garage)
- if all else fails, contact Teleplan Camera Repair they will be able to assist and repair.

The operating system of your camera and computer are not the same. Transferring pictures is from camera to computer or card reader to computer, not the other way.

Re: Olympus Camedia D-560 Digital Camera When I


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.

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.

When i connect the camra with the computer it says ''Error occurred. Process aborted''


You dont need the disc to download to computer.Take the card from the camera and put it into the card reader on your computer if one is fitted, if not you need one that goes into a USB slot When the card is inserted into the reader a box will open on the screen with several options as to view images or download them.

I would also download Picasa 3 which puts your photos in date order and also has photo editing. This is a free download and is part of google.

It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

Black camera screen when try to upload photos


It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But as a solution I highly recommend that you instead consider a card reader to download your photos to your computer. They're very inexpensive, much faster downloading photos from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.

You place the camera's card in the reader, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For all of these reasons, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. Really, you'll save yourself a lot of heartache. Here are some examples from Amazon. Also, don't be fooled by the cost. some of the cheap ones work just fine. Go by the reviews. Also make sure you get a reader that is stated capable of reading your card (particularly if you have an SDHC card):

For international readers, here's another source for card readers (free international shipping too :-)

Card Problem


Hey abbers,
What is most likely going on is your computer formatted the card to it, and the card needs to be formatted to work in the camera. What you should do is choose to format the card when you get the message "power off or format". Directions on how to format the card are on page 143 of your camera manual and I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you no longer have yours. I hope this helps!
