Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.

I cannot transfer photos/videos on my laptop. when i connect the USB it always says no connection on the LCD of the camera...what should i do. my camera is the Olympus SP800uz


1. Try to use another USB port to connect the camera to the computer.
2. If that does not help at all, you might want to check if it works well when connecting the camera to another computer.
3. If it does not work either, replace the Olympus' USB cable first to diagnose further. (CB-USB6)

My camera Olympu FE-340 is locked, it got locked when i conected it to my laptop, i can transfer the photos i have in it to my laptop, but when i want to take photos the screen gets black and red letters...


Perhaps the protection slider on the memory card has slipped into the locked position, or is there a 'protection' or 'favourites' setting in the camera menus?

Transferring photos


I solved my problem by using the camera card in the scanner/copier and fron there transfer the picture to a file that way. Then I was able to burn them on to a CD. It did not solve my problem with Olympus Master and how to access a way to a file.

Thank you for your support and website.

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.

Missing Pictures


You may have chosen the delete from camera option. When you transfered the photos.

Have a closer look at the options when you download the next lot of photos, some times there is a tick box for delete while transfering.
