I have installed the software, connected the USB cable, but when I try to transfer the images the camera comes up the message 'one moment' and then does nothing for ages. I have tried transferring from the Olympus Master 2 toolbar and a message comes up cannot find an Olympus digital camera connected to the computer. I have previously had a Cannon and had no problems at all transferring images. Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?

There are two ways to transfer your photos from phone to pc, either by blutooth or via usb data cable.
These two means of transferring files will need special software installed in your computer in order to make a connection between mobile phone and computer. The list below are softwares that you may install in your computer to get access with the files on your mobile phone.
You can get a cable from ebay easily enough, once connected to your PC and switched on, if you PC doesn't recognise your camera/phone, then I suggest you go to the manufacturers web site, follow links for support and/or downloads and download the respective drivers.
connec the usb cable to ur pc and then open my computer. you shall see a removable disk double click that. then click on the folder called DCIM and you can find all ur pics there. select whichever you want and drag and drop them to the location you want them on the computer. issue resolved.........let me know if u have anymore queries. also you dont need the software installed only the drivers for the usb cable need to be installed
Have you checked the HP hep site?
Here is their suggestion
This document explains how to transfer images from the camera to a computer running Windows XP operating system by using a universal serial bus (USB) cable.
Transferring the images
Follow the steps below to transfer images from the camera to a Windows XP computer.
Step one: Connect the camera to the computer
Turn off the camera.
The camera came with a special USB cable for connecting the camera to a computer. Connect the large end of that USB cable to the computer.
Figure 1: Connect the USB cable
Open the rubber door on the side of the camera and connect the small end of the USB cable to the USB connector on the camera.
Step two: Transfer the images
Choose one of the following methods to transfer the image files:
Method one: Transfer images with the HP Photosmart software
If images on the camera are selected for printing or selected for HP Instant Share destinations, make sure the computer is connected to a printer and the Internet.
Turn on the camera. The HP Import Photos software starts on your computer. If you have set the software to automatically transfer the images in the camera, the images automatically transfer to the computer.
Otherwise, in the Transfer images from Camera/Card screen, click Start Transfer . The images are transferred to the computer, and then if there are any still images that were previously selected for HP Instant Share destinations, those actions are started.
When the Image Action Summary screen appears on the computer, you can disconnect the camera from the computer.
Method two: Transfer images without the HP Photosmart software
If you do not, or cannot, install HP Photosmart Software on your computer, you can still transfer images from the camera to the computer using the Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) in Windows XP.
Follow the steps below to transfer images.
Turn on the camera.
Windows will automatically launch a program to transfer the images.
When the images have finished transferring, disconnect the camera from the computer.
If you encounter problems, check that the camera USB Configuration in the Setup Menu is set to Digital Camera .
While in Live View , press the Live View/Playback button, and then press the Menu/OK button.
Scroll to the Setup Menu using the left/right arrow buttons.
Use the up/down arrow buttons to scroll through the Setup Menu to highlight the USB option.
Use the left/right arrow buttons to change the setting to Digital Camera and then press the Menu/OK button.
To exit from the Setup Menu , press the Live View/Playback button.
A couple of things you can try: 1. Insert the Camera's USB cord to another USB port of your PC; 2. While disconnected from the PC, verify that the pictures are still inside the camera's memory; 3. Reset the camera (power on/off); 4. Check the camera's batteries; 5. Reboot your PC with the camera attached via the USB; 6. Remove the memory card from the camera and try uploading using a card reader; 7. Uninstall all instances of your USB in your PC's Device Manager, reboot and allow the PC to auto-detect and auto-install necessary drivers; and 8. Verify that the software/drivers for your camera are installed correctly with no yellow or red markings.
Hope this be of some help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Do you have a memeory card reader? They work a lot faster than cable transfer. Get one if you don't, for about $10 or so, or borrow one to test your card. Then see if your memory card (the "disk") displays your pictures onto the computer through the card reader. If it does, your friend might have physically damaged the USB cable connector on the camera or the card socket inside the battery compartment (or, of course, you might have done so yourself somehow). As long as you have the card reader you'll still be able to transfer images.
If the pictures don't show up on the card reader, it's more likely the card itself was damaged, though you say you tried another card. If you've already downloaded the pictures, try reformatting the card (which will erase everything) and then give it another shot.
The cause and solution may include one of the following:
The AC adapter or USB cable is not securely connected. Check the connections, and then try transferring pictures again.
Kodak EasyShare software is not installed. Install the software.
There are too many programs running on the computer. Close all software programs and try transferring pictures again.
The camera was removed from the dock during picture transfer. Replace the camera on the dock, and press the Transfer button.
The Transfer button was not pressed. Press the Transfer button.
