I recently went on a trip to the snow, but when i came back to download photos from my FE-280 to my apple mac, it said that about 20 photos were unreadable. i've kept all those photos on my camera but put off finding out the solution to the problem as i was leaving for another trip to sydney in less than a week. when i came back and tried to download the photos from that trip it did the same thing, except about 250 photos were "unreadable". i dont understand why there is a difference between some photos and why my computer wont read them. i've never had a problem with downloading photos before.. please help.

Re: trouble downloading photos.
Some things to try Grace. Take the card to a processing station and see if their machines can read the images. Or If you have a friend with a PC[as opposed to a Mac] may have better luck In the PC world there many recovery probrams available -usually Freeware- Do you have similar opportunities in the Mac world - a search on your browser for 'Image Recovery' for Mac O/S. If not t hen you will have to find out if your camera is faulting or the card, by trying the card in another camera for eample or buying another card.

I too have recently purchased the same camera and mine isnt 'talking' to my PC either. First I was told that the software was internal and upon taking it back I am now told to download the driver - of which I cant locate even on the Olympus website. I am still waiting on Olympus to get back to me. Have you found a solution as yet?
The FE-280 will not deface your photos by scrawling digits across them. However, the data is stored with each file. Just about any photo viewer should be able to show you this data. Depending on the program and printer, you can print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back. Refer to the documentation for whatever program you're using to print. If you print directly from the camera, the instructions are in the "Printing pictures" section of the Advanced Manual (page 29 in my copy).
If you go to the manufacturers site and look under "Support" you'll be able to download all software and drivers for this camera. You will also have the opportunity to update the firmware. Thank you, Dana
This camera is not capable to shoot images in black and white as this is not a menu selectable feature of this camera. You can take the image in color and then download it to your computer and then using photo editing software change the image to black and white or monotone using the edit function in that photo editing program.
This camera does not have the capability to shoot images in black and white. What you need to do is to take the images in color, download them to computer and then use photo editing software to then be in black and white. Most software applications have that as an editing option.
I have recently had the same problem. I sent my camera back to Olympus who very efficiently repaired it FOC and sent it back with an extended warranty. I gather this is a very common problem with this camera.
Connect Olympus camera to laptop with USB cable provided, turn the camera on and open "Computer" in Window explorer or Computer. You should see the new removable disk, click on it and you will probably see one subdirectory and one sub-sub drectory, something like 100OLYMP, open it up and you should see jpg files in your camera. The light will blink for some time and then stop. You should then be able to select the files and transfer them to your folder on the hard drive.
When you first turn on the camera you could check to see in Device Manager, under Portable Devices, if your camera is recognized and whether everything is OK with your driver.
If you have a card reader you can also try to read the card from the laptop.
I am on vacation and forgot my cd to be able to download pictures from the camera; FE- 280, to my pc notebook, that's a toshiba satellite with home vista. Is there a way I can download these pictures to my notebook without the software that I forgot to bring with me. It's not loaded on my notebook. Thanks. email@example.com
