Re: Olymus, She said thet is was dropped, Gets power,...
The lens assembly is a very delicate part of any camera. It contains small servo-motors and inductance coils along with the actual lens. Even service centers are having trouble managing to fix this and these problems lead in most of the cases in the replacing of the camera's lens assembly. I recomand you to go to a service center, present them the problem and then ask them for a cost estimate before they do something with it.
I'm sorry this is not what you wanted to hear. Back some time in our history sultans killed the messangers who delivered bad news. :)

Take the batteries out and let it power down push the lens in slowly to reset the motor, then put the batteries back in this should clear the jam if not it will need to be taken to a camera shop.. Thanks Rulds2008 please rate me!!
The best solution is to obtain a card reader.
Apart from anything else it will save a fortune on battery power.
Are you connecting the camersa direct to computer or via a hub?
and how many other USB devices are hooked up and running?
All relevant- reduce these and see what hapens
it seems that the lense movement is jammed. Have you dropped the camera? just have a close look from the front side of the camera, does the lense assembly seems to be pressed or moved aside by some extra preassure? if no physical disalingment is visible may be some sand or dust partical is obstructing the movement of the lense assambly. needs a help from camera repair shop.
