Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera

Olympus FE-230 - will not import certain video to computer

Hey all, so I've been having this problem for a couple of months now, on two separate occasions.

I have taken a few videos with my camera, and when I go to import them onto my computer (I have a Mac/iPhoto, if that helps) every PICTURE will import, and a few videos, but not all of them. (Seemingly, not the BEST ones, ugh) - I have about six videos saved on my camera, and I have even tried to give it to a friend to try and import them onto her computer, nothing has worked.

I'm wondering if it might be in some sort of play mode that won't let me export the video or something? I think one of the videos, I had played back before attempting to import it to my itunes, but it wouldn't import.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! I really don't want to lose these videos :(

    Thank you both for your ideas! in response to bubbabear64 - my friend tried it on her cardreader and got the same result.

    I have the cable that my camera came with, and it WILL import several of my videos, just not a few of them (maybe they are the bigger ones?) I have an iMac, so I'm pretty sure my USB drive should be in top form!I will check in with the olympus people too. thank you!

    Have you tried removing the memory card from the camera and reading it with a card reader?



    That way we can see if it's the cable, the camera or the memory card.

Make sure your not running the cable through a hub of any kind.
Plug it directly into a usb port on the computer.
Sometimes the hub can limit the bandwidth (speed)
and with video you need all you can get.
I'm assuming here that your computer is new enough to have the
2.0 usb standard.
Best of luck Paul

Were you trying to put pictures directly from your camera to your phone? Please clarify. If so this will not work without conversion software if it even exists.

It dosnt charge


Hey there tiffg0m3z,

I have the fe-220. I believe yours has similiar properties. They require a separate charger for the battery. Hooking up to a usb is not going to charge your battery. The LI-40c charger should have come with your camera. If you purchased aftermarket, contact seller to obtain specific charger for your camera.

Good Luck and let me know if I can be of further assistance.

The FE-170 is not equipt with microphone for sound with video. Sorry. The only fix is to buy a different camera.Some with sound are:Olympus FE-190, FE-230, most Stylus brands and newer FE model cameras.
