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.

Please follow the steps below for connecting the Camera to the Computer for transferring the images.

Cannot transfer movies from camera to my computer. have new computer


Check whether the Camera has any settings that has to be selected in order to connect it to the Computer.

If the Computer is not recognizing the Camera/Camcorder, check whether the USB Driver is installed in the Computer or not. Also, the Computer will not recognize the Camera/Camcorder if the USB Driver is corrupted. In this case you may un-install and install the USB Driver is the Computer.

After the Computer recognizes as Removable device, you can double-click on it to view the video files stored in the Memory of the Camera. Then, you can copy and paste the video files to the desired location on the Hard drive of the Computer.

If un-installing and installing the USB Driver does not work then you may transfer the files using Memory Card Reader.
If the Computer has the Memory Stick slot, then you can transfer the video files without using the Card Reader.

Camera will not upload photos to computer


Depending on the method you're using, this can usually be remedied in one of two ways:
  1. USB Cable: make sure your camera is turned off before connecting to the computer, and that the drivers for your camera have been loaded prior to connecting.
  2. Memory Card: SD or MMC card readers are becoming more std. on computers, or inexpensive card readers are available to connect via USB.
If you are experiencing difficulties with either of these, this may involve a problem with your USB port or the drivers your computer is using. Sometimes it's as simple as removing the driver which isn't working properly and re-installing it again. In most cases, you will need to install the driver without the USB device connected, so that after you have successfully loaded the driver, the computer will recognize your USB device properly.

Once again, make sure your camera is turned OFF when you connect it to your computer with the USB cable (of course, your computer needs to be turned on). Then, turn the camera on, and you should see the computer recognize the device.

I HAVE A SONY DIGI CAM MODEL DSC W-5. MY PC IS NOW UPGRADED WITH WINDOWS VISTA AND SINCE THEN IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO DOWNLOAD THE PICTURE TO PC. THE INSTALLATION CD ISSUED WITH CAMERA DOES NOT COMPITABLE...


  1. Turn on the camera.
  2. Insert the recording media containing the pictures into the camera.
  3. Depending on your camera, set the USB Connection or Transfer mode setting in the menu to the Mass Storage , Normal , or PTP .
  4. Use the USB cable supplied with the camera to connect the camera to the computer. IMPORTANT:
    • Connection through a USB hub or other USB device -- such as a printer or keyboard -- is not supported and cannot be guaranteed. Connect the camera directly to a USB port on the computer.
    • If the USB connection from the camera is not recognized by the computer, disconnect the USB cable and repeat steps 4 and 5 using a different USB Connection or Transfer mode setting. If the connection is still not recognized, further troubleshooting is available.

    NOTES:
    • The computer will automatically install the USB driver for the camera.
    • When the camera connection is established, an AutoPlay window will appear.

  5. In the AutoPlay window, click Import pictures .
  6. In the Importing Pictures and Videos window, click the Import button. NOTE: After the pictures have been imported, the Windows Photo Gallery window will appear and display thumbnails of the imported images.
If this doesn't work there is an updated driver available

Windows doesn's recognize camera, device manager says no driver


Hi -

Have you tried another USB port? Sometimes, they can act goofy.
Also be sure your anti-virus isn't blocking any part of the installation.

Here is a link to the Samsung troubleshooting guide for your camera.
You can probably download the most recent driver from that website as well.
Perhaps they have a better or newer version than what came prepackaged
with the camera (just because a camera is a new purchase does not mean
the software it came with is the most updated).

I run WinXP home edition, so I am not familiar if there are any differences in the professional version regarding software installation....

Good luck!
