Question about Olympus Camedia C-765 Digital Camera

Open Question

Why won't my Olympus C765 take photos?

Battery and memory card are OK. However, everything seems to be very slow. I can review photos already taken. I can transfer photos to my computer. When I press the button to take a shot, nothing happens.

    Thank you very much for your help. I think it may be the battery after all. After unsuccessfully trying to press the button, I closed the camera. When I started it up again, it took the phot. Presumably the battery is strong enough for other functions but not taking a shot. Fingers crossed that buying a new battery solves it because i do love my 8 year old camera.

You can transfer the photos directly from the camera to the PC using the USB cable that came with the camera. You don't need to transfer the pics to memory card first.

Connect the cable to the camera and the PC. Turn on the camera and your PC will recognise it as an external storage device. Use the PC's software to transfer the photos from camera to PC.

Once you have the pics on the PC you can use the Olympus Master software included with the camera to edit and archive the photos on the PC.

In the Menu if you go to the option that says Setup and press ok there should be an option that says Backup. This should allow you to copy the images from the internal memory to your xD card.

Hello, The videos will not be in the same folder where your pictures are. Follow these steps. 1.First, connect your digital camera to your computer. You can do this in two different ways: a.Use a USB cable. Most digital cameras come with a cable that connects the camera to a USB (Universal Serial Bus) port on your computer. The first time you connect your camera to your computer, the New Hardware Wizard will help you install the software needed to copy pictures and video from your camera. You may need to insert the CD-ROM that was included with your camera into your computer's CD drive or download software from your camera manufacturer's Web site. b.Use memory card reader. A memory card reader is a piece of hardware that plugs into your computer. When you're ready to download video, you can remove the memory card from your camera and insert it into your memory card reader, similar to the way you might transfer a file between two computers using a floppy disk. Picture of a computer with a memory card Tip: It's usually faster to use a memory card reader to copy your pictures or video than to connect your camera to your computer with a cable. If you don't own a memory card reader, you might want to consider purchasing one. They are inexpensive and will save you time. 2.Once you've connected your camera to your computer or inserted your memory card into your memory card reader, Windows XP will detect the connection to your memory card and ask what to do with your videos. Click Open folder to view files, and then click OK. Click Open folder to view files, and then click OK 3.Windows Explorer opens, showing your memory card. Your videos are contained within one of the subfolders of the memory card. Double-click each folder to locate your videos. 4.Once located. copy them to your computer and then select all and delete. Please rate my solution. Good luck, Jegan

I have the same problem. Have you come across a solution? It's definately my lens and not my battery. Where did you go to get the lens looked at and repaired?

How can I access missing pictures on my memory card?


Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones.
Here's a YouTube video of your freeware options:

I can't connect my Olympus Fe 4000 to my computer to review the pictures.


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, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

No pictures message showing on blue screen when card is full


Try this...Download the camera photo undelete program Asoftech Photo Recovery from
http://www.asoftech.com

You must not take anymore pictures on your card. You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader.Put the card in the card reader, open the the program, select the drive where you recover pictures from, then click on start. Wait, for it to do it's magic.

You need to use a card reader either one already in your computer (some have one, some don't). Or buy an external USB card reader. They are around 10.00 and can be found at walmart, bestbuy, frys, probably target.
The problem with built in card readers is that they will usually only read up to a 2G card.

I was not able to recover photos by hooking the camera up to the pc with the usb cord, it just won't work.

This is the important part. Choose the pics you want to recover, then choose recover, a box comes up asking where you want to save to. Choose documents/my pictures or wherever you want to save your pictures too. The pictures ONLY save to your pc and not the card.

Format your card in the camera after you have retrieved your photos and backed them up to an external source.

Lost images


Take out the memory card from the camera and try it in another camera used this type of memory card and it will let you know if the problem is with your camera or your memory card. In case you will found out that the problem is with the memory card - you need for a data recovery software to recover your pictures. There are a lot of recovery software's at the market and some of them are even for free. Look for it in the internet, under "memory card recovering pictures" Good luck
