My camera keeps saying battery empty so I cant use it despite several sets of new batterises

RCR-V3 not as good as Nimh---->http://www.wrotniak.net/photo/c/rcr-v3.html. 1.5 and 3V Li even if rechargeble are not worth it. Look at your cell phone batterie says it 3.6 3.7V? Even your Smartphone with glued in Batteries has that. Check out if there are 3.6 to 3.7v Accus for your cam, if so you can use 18650 cells from an old laptop batterrie(if you want to ask me again). I will try this on my qld md 41066 cam too which quitted also very fast on premium brand Nimh(2xAA), this18650 are for free. Here in Germany we have extra recycling bins for poisonous/dangerus batteries in every supermarket.

Lost CD for olympus D-545

You don't need the Olympus software in order to use this camera.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 such as Picasa.

How do i set the date and time on my olympus

Turn the mode dial to Auto and press the OK/MENU button. Select [Setup] and then the one-handed clock.

It's all in the "Setting Date and Time" section of the Advanced Manual (page 75 in my copy).

You may check whether your lens is popped out or not. If your lens is keep popped out then there are chances that your Shuttle is locked inside the camera.
Solution is need to replace the Shuttle, and it may possible that you gently (accidentaly) pushed/press the lens.

When i try to power the camera on, the red light

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that's preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera - which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then clean the battery contacts, place the batteries back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you're using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 80% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

I have an Olympus D-545. For about the 4th time

It may be advisable to buy another card and try it to see what happens. Problems can occur on these cards. I have had some which quit working correctly. It is my advice to buy a good brand of card.
Since the camera is asking to format the card, do that, and then test it. Make sure you are testing and not taking good pictures.

The OLYMPUS Master folder is located inside your "My Pictures" folder.

  3. Open Master folder.
  4. When master folder is open, chose Edit>Select All from top menu bar, or click right mouse button and chose Select All.

In the future your Dad can also try setting the Olimpus software (Picasa) to use the My Picture folder as master folder, even if it is better to keep the two folder with different paths.
If software is Picasa, the option is on Settings command on top bar menu.

Erasing the memory card;

All pictures in the internal memory and/or on the memory card can be erased at once. This is accomplished through either formatting or the "all-frame erase" function. I copied the following instructions from the advanced manual, which can be downloaded here: http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/d545zadvman.pdf. Adobe reader should open that file with no problem. If it doesn't, that's another issue altogether.

1. Enter playback mode by pressing the play button.
2. Press the OK MENU button.
3. Press the right arrow button (next to the lightning bolt) to access [MODE MENU]
4. Then, press the down arrow to access the [MEMORY(CARD)] tab.
5. Select the [ALL ERASE] function.
6. Select Yes and press OK MENU.

(You'll need to use the arrow buttons to navigate the menus. Please see pg 16 of the manual for instructions on how to do so.)

Note: when the memory card is in the camera, it will erase the pictures off the card. When the card is removed, the function above will erase the internal memory.
