Question about Olympus FE-115 Digital Camera
The C3000(which I have) and C3030 are not directly supported by any version of Windows. You must either use the Camedia software to access the camera(via USB connection) or use an external Smartmedia card reader like a ZIO(I have one, it works great). Camedia 2.0 will work(with XP) but it will not allow you to select more than one picture at a time to download from the camera. I have heard that Camedia 2.5 fixes this problem with XP and it is available for purchase from the Olympus website. I decided to get the card reader instead of the new version of Camedia because I use Photoshop to do my editing. I believe only the latest Oly cameras(like the 3020) have direct support under XP. By this I mean when you connect the camera to the PC it shows up as a new drive letter. Hope this helps.

It says it is unable to find a camera connected to the USB ports. Any idea where I could find a driver to help this or is it another problem?

I had this same problem, I'm using Vista on my HP laptop and I managed to correct it. Apparently HP like to customize Vista and when connecting some USB device's they don't recognise them as what they should. A USB mass storage device. You will need to connect the camera to the computer, the camera will come on then click the ok button so it selects PC. Wait until it finishes its search click cancel and open device manager, scroll down and below Network Adaptors you should see an expandable tree with an yellow exclamation mark named Portable Device's --> FE-280/X820/C520 you will need to right click on the FE-280/X820/C520 icon and select "Update driver software". Then select "Browse my computer for driver software" then select "Let me pick from a list of device driver's on my computer" Scroll down till you see "Universal serial bus controllers" then select "USB Mass storage device" in the next window. It should all work fine now! If it still doesn't work try selecting "Portable devices" then select "WPD File system device" --> "Microsoft WPD filesystem Volume Driver".
Hope it helps.

I have got an OLYMPUS FE-100 camera, I downloaded the photos in to the computer thereafter the camera has been displaying the “WRITE PROTECTED”message on screen, not allowing me to take new photos and edit the existing ones. It does not have any memory card. I haven’t inserted any memory card yet, it has only internal memory of camera. Could you suggest me the solution

Currently, you can't.
Olympus have not yet released a Windows 7 driver and given that it is an ultra low cost model I doubt that they'll be in any rush to do so.
All you can do is to try and find a Windows 7 compatible xD card reader, but given that xD is now an obsolete format that might also prove to be difficult.
The only remaining option will be to install your current driver onto Win7 and try to run it in compatibility mode.
Sorry there's no straightforward/guaranteed fix here, but these issues always arise with an upgrade to a brand new O.S. version and it often takes up to a year to find out which products will be supported on the new O.S. and which ones will be consigned to obselescence.
