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.

If I understand your problem right, the installed Olympus program does not launch (start) when connecting the camera to the computer using the Olympus' USB cable.

1. For the program to start automatically, the camera must correctly being recognized by the computer. Check if this is the case! When connecting the camera to the computer, you should see information shown on the camera's display!
2. If not, try to connect the camera on another USB port, or better another computer to diagnose the problem.
3. If the camera is recognized, you can set an option in the program to autostart the program when connecting the camera to the computer.
4. If it does not help, reinstall the program.

I cannot connect up SP800UZ to my computer.


If you mean that, even when you connected the Olympus USB cable correctly, the computer does not recognize the camera? If so, connect the camera to another computer to check if the camera or usb cable or the original computer is causing the problem. Often the computer does recognize the camera as a Removeable USB Device. You can see that when using e.g. the Windows Explorer. If the problem is only, that the installed Olympus software is not started, when connecting the camera to the computer, check the settings of the [ib] software by running it manually. Otherwise re-install the [ib] software.

Hi,

The "USB mode" and "Connecting to Mass Storage" message will get displayed when the Camera is connected to the Computer and is recognized by the Computer as a Mass Storage device. This is not an error message and is a normal operation.
You can change the Mass Storage settings in the Camera (depends on the model) The USB Select or USB Connect option in the Camera can be changed to PTP, Mass Storage or PictBridge mode. Set the option in the Camera to PTP and connect it to the Computer and check if the Computer is recognizing the connection. Once the computer is recognized, it appear as a removable Drive.
You can transfer the images from the Camera to the Computer from the Removable Drive by copying and pasting.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.

I am trying to download pics from my Nikon coolpx to my IMac but iphoto does not recognize the camera - what do I need to do?


First, make sure that the Computer recognizes the Camera when connected to it using the USB cable.

When the computer recognizes the connected camera then a "No name" drive appears on the Desktop of the computer.

If the Computer is recognizing the Camera but iPhoto then follow the steps given below to transfer images from the Camera to the Computer:

Double-click the "No name" removable drive on the Desktop to view and navigate through the folders and files on the Camera.

You can see several folders, you may either navigate through each folder to locate the folder that contains the pictures or double click the "DCIM" folder to view all the images.
Next, copy all the desired images then paste them on the Hard Drive of the Computer.
