Question about Olympus C-3000 Zoom Digital Camera
C-3000 Problem! Hi - I have a problem with my Olympus C-3000. I have the USB drivers installed - when i plug the camera in with the USB cable, I get the icon in my system tray that shows a connected hardware device - when I double click on that, it says "Olympus Digital Camera". Here is the problem: I can't get anything off the camera. I've heard that you have to have the camedia software - is this true? there HAS to be some way around it! I have a brand new 128 MB smart card in it. The camera doesn't show up as an extra drive or anything, there is no way to browse the camera for the pictures. I am using WIN XP, I've tried downloader, cam2pc, and neither of them detected my camera properly. I don't want the Camedia software, and I bought this camera used (without the software). There has to be some program, some XP tweak for a WIA driver, or something I can use to explore the camera and get the pics off the smart card...any ideas?

Not sure about this one. From your description it sounds like your autoplay isn't working as it should but even if that was the case the camera should show up as an extra drive. Fixing the autoplay is no problem. If you pm me with your Email address I can send you the patch that fixes it. With windows Xp when you connect any media to the PC including a blank CDR the autoplay should bring up a box asking what you want to do with it. If it doesn't then the Autoplay is either off or needs fixing. Do you have XP service pack 1 or 2 or no service pack at all. Quite often upgrading to service pack 2 can mess with the autoplay feature. If you don't have either service pack then now would be a good time to update. Just installing the service pack can often fix numerous problems. To check which service pack you have just right click on the My Computer icon and select properties. Then look under where it reads System to see if you have any service pack.
