Re: olympus xd-picture card
Go to windows explorer. open my computer on the tree. Look for drives other than 'C' drive. It will be on one of them. It could be listed as D, E, F or whatever your computer is set to name it. Sincle click through it. When you find your pictures, drag & drop them to where you want them.

An USB memeory card reader should have several slots to insert the various memory cards. You insert the memory card into the correct slot on the card reader and then connect the CARD reader with the USB cable into the USB port on your computer. The computer will see this as an external storage device, you can then copy the photos off the memory card into your computer.
Your camera supports up to 256mg cards. The Olympus C-740 only supports the xd memory format and very few cameras from other vendors use xd, so the price is higher for the memory you need.
You can replace the card at Amazon.com by clicking here.
Try to use a card reader instead. They are only a few dollars. I use one all the time, and hardly ever will use the camera on different models I have. Never delete from the PC to the camera. It can cause corruption. Once corrupted, you may lose all pictures on the card. Always delete from the camera, unless you will format the card anyway. Use the camera and try to delete the bad picture from the camera. this may fix the problem, if not, try to read from another camera or a card reader...don't ever delete from another camera or the card reader.
The last is not good, and that means to format the card, and you will lose all which is on the card. You may try to copy to internal memory.
One more thing... take out the card. reset all in the camera menu. Then reset all the things you like. Put the card in and try to read each picture in play mode only. If one picture is very slow, delete it. This may take some time as corrupted files may read slowly. then try again.
It may be that there are damaged sections on the card preventing a read from that point on. If this is the case you will need to get a new card - but make sure that your camera supports the size and type of card that you intend to buy. Not all cameras support the most modern cards (No they are not all the same).
Do a Google search using the following string:
(Brand Name) (Model Number) +specifications
You will be able to see what cards are supported and work out from there which ones are not. This info should be in your manual if you still have it.
Ultra-compact with fast data transfer rates, the Type M xD-Picture Card
is currently available with up to 2GB of storage capacity.
Not only do they support the exclusive Olympus Panorama option, they
also activate art effect functions including 3D, oil painting, cartoon
and watercolor. These extra functions which are used in conjunction
with the software provided with your camera will add fun and creativity
to your photography.
So just to clarify, you have a TYPE M XD PICTURE CARD, MADE BY OLYMPUS.
And an Olympus mju770 SW. Now, it is the software on your computer that is going to allow you to make any changes. So first, you need to open that software. Connect the camera to the computer via USB, and voila, extra functions within the software will activate and allow you to edit the pictures with special effects like watercoloring, etc.
You know, you could also achieve the same result by using a powerful image editing tool like Photoshop CS3 or even go back as far as Photoshop 7.0. Or Microsoft Photo Editing can add those effects, and that's free with any XP machine.
