Olympus C-700 camedia digital camera installation onto pc

I have the camera plugged into the pc but do not have any software for it. Do I need it? If so can I get a free downloan from some site on the internet or must I have a cd for the specific camera? I have adobe etc., and Windows vista if this helps. Thank you.

If you are using Windows 2000, XP, or Vista then your camera will most likely be detected as a USB mass storage device and you will be able to access it's pictures from My Computer. If you are using Windows 98 then you will need the driver download from Olympus, get it here: http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/AutoConnDriv_Win98SE.exe

OR, you could always get a cheap USB flash card reader, they go for about $20 these days at Best Buy, Walmart, Staples, etc... You would have to remove the memory card from the camera and put it in the card reader to access the pictures. This is convenient if you have multiple memory card, plus memory card have gotten very cheap these days.

To answer your question about the Premium answers, I believe if you rate the first answer as anything but a "FixYa!" it will move down in the queue and another answer will take the top spot. Once a solution solves your problem then rate it as "FixYa!" to close your case and pay an expert.

Thanks.
