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, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

You will need to source the correct software so as to connect the camera to the PC. If it is for transfering photos use the card reader directly to be put into the PC and transferred.

Purchased a used C-3000 Zoom, 3.3 Megapixel Digital camera. Need software down load for my computer. My Windows XP program does not include this camera model.


The camera is a USB standard and serial connect camera and what we recommend for XP users as well as our new software is to look into purchasing a smartmedia card reader that connects to USB port so that you are able to transfer images using the reader as opposed to connecting camera to PC. The camera connection is not truly XP compliant.

To learn about the new and free version of Olympus Master 2 software go to: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/oima_softwareMaster.asp Click on 'Free Download' to register your email address to receive an email containing a link to download either the Windows or Mac version. This software replaces all previous versions of Camedia Master 4.x and Olympus Master 1.x and is XP and Vista compatible.

Olympus 3000 Zoom digital camera


You have to edit the file:

c:\windows\inf\srusbusd.inf

You'll have to remove two semicolons.

The section:
[Manufacturer]
;%MfgNikon%=ModelsNikon
;%MfgEpson%=ModelsEpson
remove this semicolon=>;%MfgOlympus%=ModelsOlympus

Must become:
[Manufacturer]
;%MfgNikon%=ModelsNikon
;%MfgEpson%=ModelsEpson
%MfgOlympus%=ModelsOlympus

And

The section:
[ModelsOlympus]
remove this semicolon=>;%USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100.Device%=Olympus,
USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100
must become:
[ModelsOlympus]
%USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100.Device%=Olympus, USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100

After this, if you have already the Olympus C-xxxx in your Device Manager,
uninstall it and run again the new hardware wizard. Let Windows XP find the
correct driver. Windows will attempt to frighten you with a catastrophe
prophecy. Just ignore it and go on (it works perfectly).
You're done. Now your Windows XP will see your Olympus C-XXXX Zoom
without any additional software.

hey,

just to know exactly what you need:

Windows xp sp2: connect you camera, open windows explorer and a new folder in my computer will be present called 'removable disk'.

You can open that folder and copy the pictures to you picture folder in my documents.

If you need software to edit pictures there are lots of them out there: paint shop pro, googles picasa2 etc.

I prefer gimp my self, it is open source and works very well. Almost like adope photoshop and it is totally free here is a movie about gimp:

C-3000 RETRIVAL - any ideas?


Not sure about this one. From your description it sounds like your autoplay isn't working as it should but even if that was the case the camera should show up as an extra drive. Fixing the autoplay is no problem. If you pm me with your Email address I can send you the patch that fixes it. With windows Xp when you connect any media to the PC including a blank CDR the autoplay should bring up a box asking what you want to do with it. If it doesn't then the Autoplay is either off or needs fixing. Do you have XP service pack 1 or 2 or no service pack at all. Quite often upgrading to service pack 2 can mess with the autoplay feature. If you don't have either service pack then now would be a good time to update. Just installing the service pack can often fix numerous problems. To check which service pack you have just right click on the My Computer icon and select properties. Then look under where it reads System to see if you have any service pack.

Camedia software to see my camera via the USB port.


I'm assuming a Windows Machine (98 or 2000), and that you have (known to be) working USB ports. Boot your computer. Plug the computer end of the USB cable directly into the computer USB port (not a hub). Turn off the camera. Plug the camera end of the USB cable into the 3000. Then turn on the 3000. Windows should recognize new hardware. When Windows asks about drivers for the new hardware, direct it to your Camedia CD. Probably directory \USB\Win98 (or 2000) or something similar. Windows should then load the driver automatically. I *don't* think the 3000 will show up as a Drive device in My Computer. I think only the 2040/3040/E10 models will. But, Camedia should see it now. Toward the left-hand side (center) of the Camedia screen you should see a camera icon. Click it and it should open directories, drill down till your pix appear as thumbnail images. If Camedia says it can't find the camera, select Edit/Options/Download from the Camedia menu and ensure that USB is the selected choice.
