Make sure the camera is on and PC is selected on the camera screen when connected to the computer. You will need to have PC highlighted and select OK on the camera as this starts the camera and computer to communicate. Once communication established the LCD screen of the camera goes dark and the computer should generate a removable disk drive. Check the System Tray (lower right corner beside the PC time) for Safely Remove Hardware. When you click on it, it should read "Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device Drive ?:" If you dont see that, then check the Device Manager to see if the camera is recognized as USB Mass Storage Device. The camera uses the driver usbstor.

Problem with the Olympus FE-115 Digital Camera my


Unfortunately, the picture error message means that the image been modified such that the camera can't read it. It is possible that the camera thinks the picture was taken by another camera. Since the picture is still good when you check it with the computer, it hasn't been damaged. Archive the picture and make sure to back it up after it goes on the computer. (If the computer couldn't view it, then you'd need some sort of file recovery software and might not get the entire image back.)

Manuals for the FE-115 are available from the Olympus site: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_archived_product_details.asp?id=1227&fl=8 .

I hope this helps.

Hey my Olympus 230 digital camera seems to have deleted my photos, a message appeared on the camera "picture error", just wondering how I can get them back??


If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones.
All the download links listed in the article are through CNET, primarily to verify that these are malware free software, and to give you a chance to read user reviews on the software before downloading.

My pc can't find my C765 camedia zoom camera


That depends - what operating system is running on your computer? If you are running Vista it is because Camedia Master is not compatible with that operating system.

To learn about the new and free version of Olympus Master 2 software go to: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/oima_softwareMaster.asp Click on 'Free Download' to register your email address to receive an email containing a link to download either the Windows or Mac version. This software replaces all previous versions of Camedia Master 4.x and Olympus Master 1.x and is XP and Vista compatible.

Olympus 2G xd M card with pictures - error message "clean card" or format


Just had the same issue today. The Olympus Helpdesk told me that the fact I had printed one of the picture from the Xd card in directly inserting the card in the printer slot for Xd created the problem....
The guy from the Helpdesk strongly recommended to transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer exclusively using the USB cable of the camera.
In the end I have saved all my 505 pictures in using the Smart Recovery from PC Inspector but why the hell this problem only happens with Xd cards?

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.)

http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/oima_softwareMaster.asp

At their main site, search for olympus master 2.

Downloading Photos


Remove the Olympus software.
Let Windows find them with the Camera/Scanner Wizard.
It is likely the laptop has not the memory resources to receive all the photos in one hit so try in batches of 10 or so.
