Camedia software to see my camera via the USB port.
Need to get the Camedia software to see my camera via the USB port.
Have read several responses here, and have tried this procedure below:
I connected the camera, turned it off, opened,
"My Computer" and then watched the list there when I turned the camera on.
There was no change. The drives listed, floppy, C, Removable Disk (D), and
E are listed there nomally. Below the drives Digital Camera appears in the
rest of the list. I have a Zip Drive set up in D but I am not using it.
When I turned the camera on the list did not change at all. When I click on
the Removable Disk line I get a beep and the message that the device is not ready.
Also, says that the USB driver needs to be manually
installed if the computer is running Windows 98. Do you know how I do that?
Could that be the problem?

Re: Camedia software to see my camera via the USB port.
I'm assuming a Windows Machine (98 or 2000),
and that you have (known to be) working USB ports.
Boot your computer. Plug the computer end of the USB
cable directly into the computer USB port (not a hub).
Turn off the camera. Plug the camera end of the USB
cable into the 3000. Then turn on the 3000.
Windows should recognize new hardware.
When Windows asks about drivers for the new hardware,
direct it to your Camedia CD.
Probably directory \USB\Win98 (or 2000) or something
Windows should then load the driver automatically.
I *don't* think the 3000 will show up as a Drive device in
My Computer. I think only the 2040/3040/E10 models will.
But, Camedia should see it now. Toward the left-hand
side (center) of the Camedia screen you should see a
camera icon. Click it and it should open directories, drill
down till your pix appear as thumbnail images.
If Camedia says it can't find the camera, select
Edit/Options/Download from the Camedia menu and
ensure that USB is the selected choice.

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 ).
I have good news and bad news. The good news is: I can solve your problem! The bad news is: those 17 different types of card do not include yours... almost certainly a SDHC. You need to get a card reader that specifically says that it does SDHC. I've seen USB stick adapter ones for $2.00 in the "dollar store".

By connecting the camera to a computer with the provided USB cable,
images on a card can be transferred to the computer. Some OS's (operating
systems) may need a special setup when connecting to the camera for the
first time. Follow the chart below. For details on the procedures in the chart,
refer to the “Reference Manual” on the CD-ROM and the “Software
Installation Guide” (included in the CD-ROM package).
Identifying the OS
Windows 98/98 SE
Mac OS 9.0 - 9.1/OS X
*OS 8.6: See below.
Connecting the camera to a computer using the provided USB cable
Installing the USB
driver for Windows 98
Confirming the computer recognizes the camera
Downloading image files
Disconnecting the USB cable
Even if your computer has a USB connector, data transfer may not function correctly if
you are using one of the operating systems listed below or if you have an add-on USB
connector (extension card, etc.).
● Windows 95/NT 4.0
● Windows 98/98 SE upgrade from Windows 95
● Mac OS 8.6 or lower (except Mac OS 8.6 equipped with USB MASS Storage support
1.3.5 installed at the factory)
● Data transfer is not guaranteed on a home-built PC system or PCs with no factory
You can view images using: graphics applications that support the JPEG
file format (Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, etc.); Internet browsers (Netscape
Communicator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.); CAMEDIA Master
software; or other software. For details on using commercial graphics
applications, refer to their instruction manuals.
If you're running Windows XP then you don't need it. Connect via USB cable, switch on the camera (to view) and press the OK button when the menu appears. The camera will then be seen in windows explorer as a drive and the files can be copied direct to your hard drive. You can then use a better software package to store, view, manipulate and print them.
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.
