Question about Olympus Camedia C-450 Zoom Digital Camera

Camera memory card errors/computer doesn't recognize

My Olympus C-450 digital camera is driving me batty! First, when taking a photo the camera light flashed red and froze, then claimed the memory card needed reformatting and consequently lost all my pictures. I sent it to Olympus for repair and nothing was wrong with it. I now have it back and I am having similar problems, I took 60 pics today, then it started flashing red and green lights. I tried to load my pics onto computer but either the computer (Mac) doesn't recognise it or wants to repair it. When I turn the camera on I see three pics, then a picture error. I am at my wits end! Should I give up on it or buy a new memory card? There is obviously something wrong somewhere and I am disappointed that I went through all that hassle posting it to Olympus!! Could clever bod please help? Thanks in advance!

Can you get a memory card reader that works for a Mac? If so then loading pic's to the 'puter through that route Flashing red and green lights have a meaning- what does the manual say?[Check the more comprehensive manual on the Software disk] You could buy[or borrow] another card- nothing wrong with having more that one. Also try the card in another camera and a fresh card in yours[Take it a photo shop to try this]

How do i download sofware Olympus camera

Do you really want the Olympus software when there are better options available?

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

Why wont my computer recognize my sandisk memory card anymore

Sometimes it happens that your slot doesn't work you can use a another option like Olympus LS-10 digital recorder as a card reader for accessing the data. Insert the SD card in your LS-10 digital recorder then connect the recorder to the computer with a USB cord then it will show you two options for the onboard storage inherent and one for the SD-Card. Select first photoshop elements to read the card and then Windows Live photo Gallery to view and copy your photos.

I have downloaded my pictures from my camera in error and now want to put them back into the camera - any ideas? Thanks Camera is an Olympus Stylus 700 Digital Camera PC is currently running Windows Vista.

Take out memory card from camera, put it in any generic memory card reader, plug it with computer, click My Computer and find any new drive letter there (mass storage or some thing) click that icon and now you are in memory card of camera.
Copy those pictures and paste them in picture folder in memory card. Unplug memory card from computer, put it back in camera and see those pictures. make sure picture file names that were taken from camera must not have been changed so camera will recognize them as valid file name.
Thanks.

Olympus xd card formatting problems.

If you like the camera and XD cards then I would use the USB cable to download the photos from the camera. When you plug the USB cale into the camera and then into the computer, the computer should recognize the camera and set it up as another disk drive. Copy or move the pictures from the card to your Photo location. Use the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the system tray to disconnect the camera and your done. The camera can format the XD card and the computer can read it through the camera.
