Question about Cameras
In the past I have successfully downloaded photos from my Olympus FE-280 digital camera. However I cannot download photos now. When I connect the camera to my laptop via the USB, the camera display lights up and allows me to select PC. Once selected, the camera LED flashes as if it is downloading photos to my laptop...however the photos are not downloaded. I have Windows Vista.
Connect Olympus camera to laptop with USB cable provided, turn the camera on and open "Computer" in Window explorer or Computer. You should see the new removable disk, click on it and you will probably see one subdirectory and one sub-sub drectory, something like 100OLYMP, open it up and you should see jpg files in your camera. The light will blink for some time and then stop. You should then be able to select the files and transfer them to your folder on the hard drive.
When you first turn on the camera you could check to see in Device Manager, under Portable Devices, if your camera is recognized and whether everything is OK with your driver.
If you have a card reader you can also try to read the card from the laptop.
Hope it works!
