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.

HOW TO TURN OFF THE WRITE PROTECT ON MY FE 5020 OLYMPUS


Remove the memory card from the camera, look for a small switch on the one side, the switch that is furthest from the contacts is in the unlock position "write protect removed" but if it's closest to the contact it is in the locked position "write protect inforced" if you find the switch in the proper position, "slide it back and forth to clean the contacts" if that fails replace the memory card.

I had this on xmas day and was fine for 1st 50 photos then a 2 cm area of the picture on the screen has disappeared. although the photos download ok its rather annoying for a new camera that was not cheap


If this is a black spot that's in the same place on the LCD screen I would say that there are several pixels that have burnt out and definitely a warranty case.
