    Exactly the same problem. I click on the desk top short cut and get the message. "we are sorry Olympus Master has encountered a problem and will have to close". I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling but it didn't fix it.

    Can someone help. I need to make christmas cards for this year not 2009!

Hi, IGNORE the software, just plug in the camers, select PC on the back of the camera, you'll here the xp deding, go to my computer, you'll find a new icon there saying something like removable media. Double click on it, the folder will open double click the icon - 100olympus and there are your pix, you can drag and drop them into a folder on your computer - easy peesey!

Try Picasa, free from google. it works for many USB cameras, simple. Camedia software has more bells and whistles, but Picasa hasnt failed me yet.

I have an Olympus VG-16 and it has just recently started to play up. I have had it for at least 2 years and it's used on a daily basis. When I go to power it on the lens opens and closes twice and then...

This could be the auto focus sensor that is not working that why the lens comes out and goes back twice. The other thing it could be is the range on the lens is not enough and it wont reach full extension. I would send it in.

Suddenly the camera is not working !!!

You have to try format the memory card in your camera ?
You write, that "setup" is working
Might be the need of memory updating - computer does mainly harms to the camera if used to operate inside of camera ;-(

Own experience and twice - is, that the camera had lost all pictures from memorycard.
Happily enough a program downloaded from the net was helping.

Wish good luck!

Compatability with norton security centre

Hi cazzaminx.
This is a easy one.
I'll show you how to un-install ANY program and then clean up all the trash left in the registry. Go to ....
Download and simply follow instructions.
try to run the last clean up portion of the prog twice.

Than go to Download, run scan and fix twice. DO NOT remove the unsafe to fix notations.
The site may prompt you to download wisediskcleaner Do it
run twice. If not prompted go to and download it.

I am assuming you are running Windows, Run the windows disk cleaner twice, you will find it under
start/all programs/accessories/system tools/disk cleanup. than for good housekeeping Download Auslogics Defragmenter program and run once. It's much better than the windows version.

Don't worry about messing anything up. Each program creates it's own restore point, so you can always go to, system restore and back up to a earlier time.
You can use Revo to delete any unwanted program and don't be afraid to click next on every step.

Reinstalling software

Close down the computer. Reboot the computer go to Control panel Add/delete software - find the Olympus file and click delete. When done do not re install, but put the CD back in the box, Windows does very well without it. If you need an image editor download Picasa it free. If you want an image viewer Download Irfanview- that's free too. Software the comes with camera is always bet left in the box in my view
