Question about Olympus Camedia D-40 Zoom Digital Camera
I make no pretensions towards being an avid/professional photographer - I just wanted a small/portable point-and-shoot digital camera which could take, to my eye, excellent photos with a minimum of fuss. I have a question about the Camedia Software which Olympus ships with their digital cameras. Apparently, the "Camera Settings" portion of the software is only compatible with cameras with a serial interface. The D40 is a USB/auto-connect camera and the Camedia Software basically treats the camera a simply a mass-storage USB device. Does anyone know if there is a way to get the software to recognize the camera, or if there are plans to modify the software in the future?

Camedia software leaves a lot to be desired. I prefer to use a USB media reader and Google's excellent Picasa software to manage my photos.
