Question about Olympus SP-500 UZ Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can't download photos from Olympus SP500UZ

I can not download the photos from my Olympus SP500UZ camera. I am using Olympus Master 2 and USB cable. But the program does not "see" the camera, also using just Windows XP as the downloader, sees and identifies the camera model correctly but the disk shows empty.
I can download the photos if a xD card reader from an HP pc is used.
Anybody know if USB downloading is available with this model?
Thank in advance.

I have a new Dell computer using Windows 7 andd have installed software Camedia Master 4.1 for my C-740 camera. The master page can be accessed but when I try to download photos from camera using the USB...


Consider 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 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.

Vista not recognising Olympus camera on USB connection


I just spoke to Olympus Tech Support.

You have to download Olympus Master 2. (Their program is no longer called Camedia Master.)

At their main site, search for olympus master 2.

Olympus camera fe 240


You can transfer the photos directly from the camera to the PC using the USB cable that came with the camera. You don't need to transfer the pics to memory card first.

Connect the cable to the camera and the PC. Turn on the camera and your PC will recognise it as an external storage device. Use the PC's software to transfer the photos from camera to PC.

Once you have the pics on the PC you can use the Olympus Master software included with the camera to edit and archive the photos on the PC.

Problems downloading photos from camera


Unless someone else on the forum offers something more specific, I'd be very tempted to borrow a USB cable from a friend and see if using that instead of yours works. (Doesn't have to be from an Olympus camera - anything that has the same connectors on - camera, MP3 player, etc lead will do). A.
