Assuming you have a computer with Windows installed.

The computer shopuld recognize the camera and a removable USB device or
SP800 folder should be visible.
2. Open the Windows Explorer and open that new removable USB folder or SP800
folder and (multi-) select the pictures from the internal memory and delete them.

I can not do initialation program with my new camera sp-800uz. dont have cd for doeing it, and my computer gives me oceania and asia distric. how shall i go on furter to continue with programs?

The Olympus SP-800uz camera does not come with a CDROM.

The software for Windows is available on the internal memory of the camera, if you did not format / delete it! If you are using Windows, the software should popup a message to install it, when there is no SD-card installed in the camera (only internal memory), if you connect the camera to the computer.

As an alternative, you can download another free and much better Olympus software program, the Olympus Viewer 2. See here (you need to put in your cameras serial number to download it):

My olympus sp-800uz is not installing the software to my computer and the usb connection will time out. I can not get any of my photos or videos off of it.

1. Did you try another USB port? It is possible that the USB port you are using is at fault. 2. To check if the camera and/or camera USB cable is correct, try to connect the SP-800 camera on another computer. Do not use a SD / SDHC memorycard in the camera at first, the software is loaded on the internal memory.

Consider 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

When initializing the camera, there is nothing (no program) to pull up on the computer.

The Olympus [ib] software is on the internal memory of the SP-800uz camera. It should gave a message tio the user to install it after the first initialization. Remove any placed SD / SDHC card from the camera. Check if the camera memory is detected on the computer as a Removeable USB Device.
You may browse this device with the Windows Explorer and look for any setup.exe to install the Olympus [ib] software. As a (better) alternative, use the much more stable and less bloated free Olympus Viewer 2 software:
You have to give your cameras serial number to be able to download it.

Most camera memory is next to the battery
open compartment and push down on memory card and it should pop up than place it back or add another
Chances are your camera takes a sd card which is very standard

Olympus SP550UZ photos saved on camera memory not card

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.

Hi ,

There have been a few problems with high-capacity cards , and cards getting corrupted.

As a first course of action, try replacing the memory card with a mid range ammount of memory.

If this does not work, you may need to reinstall the camera's software or driver. These are available online - with your manual .

I'll just look for it for you....

The answer to your problem might lie with the OS you are using. For whatever reason, when Microsoft brought out Vista it broke a lot of old programs and devices that worked perfectly fine. Why backwards compatability is beyond Microsoft, I don't know, but its an unfortunate circumstance.
Here is a link to Olympus' website, and a direct link to the SP-350 download page -
I'm not sure if the drivers on the page are for Vista, its very vague but this is the first place to start.
Good luck!
