    My Olympus camera is no longer being detected on my computer through the usb port. It has always, now all of the sudden it's saying "The software is unable to find an Olympus digital camera connected to a USB port on your computer". It has never had a problem before. Is there no official Olympus website that has its own tech support for their products?

Hi
I would suggest using a card reader. No divers are needed for these if you use XP or Vista. There are advantages to this as well apart from not having to worry about camera compatibility etc. The pictures down load a lot quicker, you save wear and tear on the battery, or if you use the power cord you could save damage to the camera buy accidentally pulling on the powercord while attached to the camera, and lastly if you have different cameras in the house and you have a mulit card reader it could be used for these as well. Card readers are really cheap these days.

Regards

Olympus SP500 connection problems to Windows 7 via USB port. Software is unable to find an Olympus digital camera on a USB port on your computer.


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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). 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 any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I cannot connect up SP800UZ to my computer.


If you mean that, even when you connected the Olympus USB cable correctly, the computer does not recognize the camera? If so, connect the camera to another computer to check if the camera or usb cable or the original computer is causing the problem. Often the computer does recognize the camera as a Removeable USB Device. You can see that when using e.g. the Windows Explorer. If the problem is only, that the installed Olympus software is not started, when connecting the camera to the computer, check the settings of the [ib] software by running it manually. Otherwise re-install the [ib] software.

My olympus sp-800uz is not installing the software to my computer and the usb connection will time out. I can not get any of my photos or videos off of it.


1. Did you try another USB port? It is possible that the USB port you are using is at fault. 2. To check if the camera and/or camera USB cable is correct, try to connect the SP-800 camera on another computer. Do not use a SD / SDHC memorycard in the camera at first, the software is loaded on the internal memory.

When the camera is connected to the computer does the camera LCD screen show a USB menu on it with the option of PC highlit? If so, then you need to press Ok on the camera to get the camera and the computer to start communicating. Once communication established the camera screen should go black and your computer should indicate that a removable disk drive has been created. If the disk drive does not get created that could be the problem. You may want to call Olympus technical support for further troubleshooting help/ Their telephone number is 888-553-4448 option 5 and then option 1.
