20 Most Recent Olympus Camedia D-580 / C-460 Digital Camera Questions & Answers

The software that comes with almost every camera, is used to make backups from the pictures on your camera. The backup device is thought to be a computer. So this software only allowed to move the pictures from the camera to the computer. lots of camera users don't even realise the have to install special software, to transfer the pictures from camera to computer.
Keeping all you computers only on one memory card in a camera is very dangerous, because there are lost of possibilities to lose all your pictures. But if you insist to put back pictures on the memory card, you should use a memory card reader connected to the computer. and copy the pictures from the computer to the memory card.
Don't try to copy pictures, made on other camera's, to the memory card that you us in your camera. Not all files are compatible, even not when they have the same name. So it could be, you have pictures from an other camera on your memory card and still you won't be able to view them on your camera display.

According to http://www.maxram.co.uk/Digital_Cameras/Olympus/Olympus_CAMEDIA_D_580_Zoom.aspx, the D-580 will take a 2GB XD card. And from the specs at Olympus's site (http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_archived_product_details.asp?id=956&fl=4), it seems it doesn't need to be an H-type card to be able to shoot movies--apparently the regular M-type card will work fine for movies.

Try 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.

Hi sounds like your camera is faulty, you would have to either buy a new camera or send it off to a repairer, it is difficult to say what the actual issue is with your camera without testing it myself, please take it to a repairer, I don't think that you would get any better answer than this. Since you have a broken camera, we would have to take it apart and start by replacing parts or using a multimeter to measure where the power goes and where it doesn't go if its supposed to. that is way too complex to teach you over the internet, your going to need a degree in electronics and the tools for the job, if you had those, you wouldn't be asking here. Take it to a repairer.

Hi Paul,

You can do basic troubleshooting from your end.

I need you to take out the battery, memory card. On the battery compartment, try to blow inside to remove any residues from the old batteries used.

Take the battery and the memory card back into place and then test if it will power on.

If it does not, let us know.

can you please help have the same problem

Olympus Camedia... | Answered on Mar 23, 2009

there appears to be a power issue and if you have replaced the batteries then you will need to send to repair

Olympus Camedia... | Answered on Jan 08, 2009

By default Olympus cameras do not print the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order or print reservation that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.

The shutter in the lens is stuck closed. You need to take the camera to a shop where they will replace the lens assembly.

Curiously, the first pictures I took with camera had the date stamp on the pics so somehow the date did appear but probably disappeared when the batteries were changed.

have you tried it IN CAPS? Or maybe there is more than one number on the CD, and the serial number is another number.

Always charge batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Always charge sets of batteries (2 or 4) together.

Make sure your rechargeable batteries are all good. One defect in a set is killing for the whole set
Don't use barrettes from different sets or brands together.
I had one brand good NiMH batteries and a very expensive charger from the same brand. The charger destroyed all my rechargeable (more than 60 now). When I first discovered the batteries were dropping out, I stopped using the charger, but it did not prevent all batteries to die in the following months. Every time on dropped out I had to change the set. I tried using up the others by grouping the ones with the same Ri, but not longer then a few months and I had a box full to trow away.
Never use a quick charger, capable of charging them within an hour or faster. Us a charger that indicates the Ri is still low enough, so you can see what batteries are bad.
Check you are using a charger for NiMH batteries.
I would try another set (new) because buying Alkaline is also not cheap.
I used 2700 mAh and later 2600 mAh rechargeable, all dead now. since a few weeks I'm now using 2300 mHh from another brand, costing 1/5 of the "best" I had before, and they are doing great. I won't charge them with the quick charger.

Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in electronic devices.
These batteries are only to be used in flash lights.
