How to put photos from my camera onto my hp laptop


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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Get Photo's Off of a Memory Card


With digital camera's people want to get photo's off of the camera and onto the computer. However many camera's use unique USB cables or need specific drivers in order to have the files transferred off of the camera. It's important to note that all camera's save the images to a memory card that's in the camera, it's usually in the same compartment as the battery. What you can buy is a USB card reader, they either plug directly into the computer or use a standard USB cable to connect. You take the memory card out of the camera and put it into the card reader. Then you're able to transfer all your pictures without any special cable or driver. This method is preferable because a card reader is inexpensive and you can get types that will read many different types of cards.

Try the alternate way of transferring the pictures to your computer instead of using cable.

Many people find it more convenient to just take the memory card out of the camera and put it in a card reader, especially now that these readers are built into computers and printers. That would be a "work around" for your problem.

As to the problem itself, a bad cable might be the cause, with damaged connectors. That is something you can replace cheaply (search Amazon on "Olympus SP-500 USB") so it won't be expensive to check it out.

Slow transfer might be due to using an older standard USB port. The first USBs were much slower than USB2 widely used now. Some older computers only have the earlier standard, and some have a mix of old and new.

Can i charge an Olympus fe-4000 with a usb cable connected to my computer?


No. The camera does not incorporate any charging circuitry. You have to use the supplied battery charger to charge the battery. The USB cable is strictly for transferring pictures and videos to the computer.

I can't get my Sp-55OUZ digital camera to transfer pictures onto my Windows XP computer. When i use the USB cable it makes the connecting "beep" but nothing shows up on my computer screen.


Take you card out and put it in the printer slot for your card. Or you can get the Olympus USB card holder and stick it into any USB port.
