Question about Olympus C-3000 Zoom Digital Camera
Need to get the Camedia software to see my camera via the USB port. Have read several responses here, and have tried this procedure below: I connected the camera, turned it off, opened, "My Computer" and then watched the list there when I turned the camera on. There was no change. The drives listed, floppy, C, Removable Disk (D), and E are listed there nomally. Below the drives Digital Camera appears in the rest of the list. I have a Zip Drive set up in D but I am not using it. When I turned the camera on the list did not change at all. When I click on the Removable Disk line I get a beep and the message that the device is not ready. Also, says that the USB driver needs to be manually installed if the computer is running Windows 98. Do you know how I do that? Could that be the problem?

I'm assuming a Windows Machine (98 or 2000), and that you have (known to be) working USB ports. Boot your computer. Plug the computer end of the USB cable directly into the computer USB port (not a hub). Turn off the camera. Plug the camera end of the USB cable into the 3000. Then turn on the 3000. Windows should recognize new hardware. When Windows asks about drivers for the new hardware, direct it to your Camedia CD. Probably directory \USB\Win98 (or 2000) or something similar. Windows should then load the driver automatically. I *don't* think the 3000 will show up as a Drive device in My Computer. I think only the 2040/3040/E10 models will. But, Camedia should see it now. Toward the left-hand side (center) of the Camedia screen you should see a camera icon. Click it and it should open directories, drill down till your pix appear as thumbnail images. If Camedia says it can't find the camera, select Edit/Options/Download from the Camedia menu and ensure that USB is the selected choice.
