Question about Olympus SP600UZ Digital Camera

2 Answers

I've just purchased this camera and plugged it into a usb port in my computer, as the instructions say to do, in order to set the camera up. My computer does not come up with anything that allows me to set it up. It comes up with a dialogue box on the computer that says 'camera connected - select the program to launch for this action' but there is nothing to select. I have Windows XP SP3 so I have the required system requirements.

As a work-around, you should try using Picasa to download the pictures off of your camera.

Picasa is a free download from Google and has many cutting-edge features for picture management. I think that you'll like it.

  • Download Picasa from their web site (click here) to your Desktop
  • Once the Picasa file has completed downloading, Open the file and follow the directions displayed.
  • Once you have Picasa installed, connect your Olympus camera. Picasa will recognize that you have connected the camera and ask you how you want to proceed.
  • Have Picasa copy the images from your camera
  • You can then use Picasa to handle the photos from your camera.

Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year!

Did a disk come with the camera?

Posted on Dec 31, 2010

  • angel24351 Jan 01, 2011

    No disc came with it. I ended up being able to use the camera to take shots, however now when I plug the camera into a usb on the computer, the computer doesn't seem to recognise I've done so, so I cant download the pictures onto the computer. Any ideas why?

I,ve purchased a apple mac and can,t get my jvc 700x to comply with it


In order to import video you have to connect your computer to the DV in/out connection on the side of the camera. In your manual its on index page 6 and its the connection on the side of the camera #25 in the index. You have to have a DV cable that connects one side to the DV out of the camera and usually a firewire port on your computer. USB connections usually don't work for importing video to your computer.
Here is a link to the manual http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/00/95/LYT1280-001B.pdf

I have a Nikon Coolpix 7900 camera I purchased used. It came without the proper USB cord, so I purchased one separately. When I attached the camera to the USB port of my computer (and I've tried...


I'm afraid that USB port has been damaged and is drawing excessive current causing the error message. You are at least fortunate in that your computers' ports are protected since the camera could have otherwise caused damage. Using a basic multimeter one could probably measure across the pins 1 & 4 to determine if the camera's input is shorted; it should in no case measure less than 5-6 Ohms regardless of lead polarity. The current capability of a USB port varies by version but is between 500 & 900 Milliamperes.

I have plugged it in and it my computer will not recognize that the USB is even plugged in, but it does charge the camera.


Try all the different USB Ports on your computer, sometimes certain ports can 'glitch' and not recognize the device that you've plugged in. If you've tried plugging it in all the ports and your computer still hasn't recognized the camera, re-install the driver software for the Olympus SP800UZ.
If all else fails, you can also contact Olympus customer service, they're quite prompt and helpful.

My problem is i cant down load my picture to the computer any more


IF you have plug-n-play capabilities, you also need a USB cord that goes from the camera to the computer - Many have USB ports on the front, now.

1) Plug the USB cord into the computer.
2) Plug the USB cord into the camera.
3) Turn the camera on (some cameras have a setting they need to be on to transfer pics - make sure you're set on that)
4) The computer should find the appropriate drivers and programs to read the pictures on the camera.
4a) If having them on the computer is enough for you, make sure the "delete when transfer complete" box that will be in most programs.
4b) Make sure the pix will download to the folder you want them two.
4c) if you want to make an album/folder for the set of pix from the camera, do so now (program prompts should show you how. If not, hit "HELP") - I usually just use the date in reverse - Feb 20, 2008 would be "20080208" - keeps 'em sorted in order.
5) Click GO, SUBMIT, TRANSFRER, or whatever your program calls it.
6) Turn off camera when all are downloaded.

The program should probably open the folder into which you downloaded the pictures.

I may have missed a step or two, but it should be fairly easy to figure out. You can leave the USB port cable plugged in, if you have enough ports, then all you need to do is connect your camera and turn it on.


thanks.

Hey Sophia,

Have you checked the battery, as the problem seems to be with battery

First of all checked if the battery is inserted properly

Take it off and re-insert it... make sure the +ve and -ve are set properly

If it still does not work...you got to replace the battery

Sir i purchased hitachi camera pen. it is detected


If you have installed the program. Uninstall it.

Unplug the pen (or any devices associated with it) from the computer.

1. Insert Disc and intstall the program.

2. When prompted, insert the device into the computer as instructed. Follow all instructions.

3. Once installed, remove disc, restart computer.

4. The computer will detect the device as the computer is loading. Wait for all "start up" programs to load, then select the program and it should open and operate.

If it is plugged into a USB Port, and is not being detected, try using another port. Do not plug such utilities into a Port Adapter, as it most likely will not be detected.

It must be plugged directly into a USB Port installed on the computer (or laptop).

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Hp Pro webcam will not work.


Follow the instructions below and it will work.

Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program.

When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the
camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

New keyboard and mouse set only works plugged into usb ports


You could purchase a 4 port usb hub for less than $30. Leave the keyboard & mouse where they are & use the hub for your other devices. This is probably the easiest option. Hope this helps.
