Question about Olympus Evolt E510 Digital Camera

2 Answers

I connected my camera ( olympus e 510) to my computer, wanted to get my photoes from my memory card and on my Ipod. I didnt save my pictures on my computer, just wanted to open my camera on the computer and then copy to pics to my ipod. I choose "storage" - wich ive done before without any problems. Computer said I had to restart computer in order to proceed. I chose to just wait and finnish up with the pics some other time, couldnt turn off the comp at that time. So now it says "XD - Write protect". I dont know what to do and I dont know why it says that ther are no pictures on the memory card????? Will the pics show up again after I "write protect" (wich I dont know what is)..? Bekka Presently I'm having the problem with the xD 2gig memory card shown on the Olympus Stylus 725 SW camera screen ' xD WRITE PROTECT'. Corrective action followed and carried out in the operation manual, inside 'Properties - Attributes' to cancel the 'read only' setting but same error message occured. Any solutions?

Hi photobug,

I've had some experience with a Stylus 710 (/w XD M & H cards) and an E-Volt-510.(XD and CF). Give us some more info like:
-what kind of ipod (generation/size), size (resolution) of you photos you want to transfer,
-type of computer (mac, windows), what operating system (Tiger/Leopard, 98, 00, XP, Vista),
-the method you are copying the photos (Olympus Master, Studio, Explorer, iTunes, etc.), &
-what are you intensions of copying the files to the ipod (display and view only on the ipod [ipod resolution], backup storage medium [original files], or just to clean up you XD card [original files], or temporary transfer medium to photo kiosk [print later]?

Answer these questions and I may offer some recommendations that worked for me.

What is the best free program to recover deleted pictures from Olympus FE-25 camera?


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
You can then recover photos from camera by downloading this photo recovery software
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Back-Up-and-Recovery/Asoftech-Photo-Recovery.shtml
Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Formatting won't make it any easier for any recovery program to find the photos, so I definitely wouldn't do it, but leave the card as it is until you've successfully recovered them. In my opinion, the best program to use is called PhotoRec and you can find it here. It's free, released under the GNU licence. (Be sure to save any photos you recover to your computer... not to the card itself.) If that fails, then move on to try paid programs if you wish.

After you've recovered all the photos that you're going to get, only THEN would I format the card (in the camera please) in order to re-use it.

I have a window7 notebook i want to download photos from my olympus fe where do i start


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 Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.

How do i install software to upload photos from my olympus c-4000 camera


One way to transfer photos from your Olympus c-4000 camera to your computer without installing any software is to remove the memory card from the camera and plug it into a card reader on your computer. The pictures on your camera will be shown in windows explorer as a removable storage device.

If you don't have a card reader connected or built-in to your computer for your memory card type, then try connecting your camera with the usb cable, and your pictures will show up in windows explorer as a removable storage device.
