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.

Hello all, Have this same problem and enjoyed other solutions. Here's one that worked for me (from a post on the web that I can no longer find). The beauty of it is that there's no software to download, and no cost: anonymous: Windows XP WIA driver for c2100uz, c3000, c3030 From: Anonymous Category: Category 1 Date: 3/31/03 Time: 8:56:41 PM Remote Name: 24.71.40.95 Comments I skimmed through the forum and didn't find anybody who had pointed this out so here it is: apparently Microsoft included drivers for these cameras with Windows XP but was forced to disable them by olympus for legal reasons. It is easy enough to reenable them and have a WIA (Windows Image Acquisition)driver. Unfortunately your camera will no longer be recognized by camedia master (big loss). First find the file srusbusd.inf in the windows\inf folder, open it with any text editor and make the following changes: olympus digital camera : The section:[Manufacturer];%MfgNikon%=ModelsNikon;%MfgEpson%=ModelsEpson remove this semicolon=>;%MfgOlympus%=ModelsOlympus Must become:[Manufacturer];%MfgNikon%=ModelsNikon;%MfgEpson%=ModelsEpson%MfgOlympus%= ModelsOlympus The section:[ModelsOlympus]remove this semicolon=>;%USB\VID_07B4&PID_010 0.Device%=Olympus,USB\VID_07B4&PID_0 100 must become:[ModelsOlympus]%USB\VID_07B4& PID_0100.Device%=Olympus, USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100 After this, if you have already the Olympus C-2100 in your Device Manager,uninstall it and run again the new hardware wizard. Let Windows XP find the correct driver. Windows will attempt to frighten you with a catastropheprophecy. Just ignore it and go on (it works perfectly).You're done. Now your Windows XP will see your Olympus C-2100 UltraZoom without any additional software. This info was borrowed from http://www.nxtcentury.com/olympus_digital_camera.html :P: Clearly, all of you need to start using more of your brains. The things you complain about are mostly user error and not taking the initiative to educate yourselves!!! A word of advice: if it has buttons and costs a lot and you can't get it to work, DON'T BUY IT. Unless you want to have a 7 year old help you figure it out LOL!!!

I struggled with the same problem but found a solution last night, I had for a long time resorted to the tediously slow download of pictures via the serial port, as Olympus only provides a serial port tool once you lose the original CD. At first I tried installing the Win2k and XP driver from: http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/Win2000.exe and after that, I at least had XP recognise that my camera connected via USB, but no imaging application recognised the camera still. Until I discovered "Camera Controller" from Pine Tree Computing, installed it from: http://www.pinetreecomputing.com/camctl_download.asp and selected my C-3030ZOOM camera from the drop-down list. Immediate result: I could transfer all pictures from the camera to my laptop via USB in a breeze. The program has limited functionality in its free version, so consider paying $25 to get the full featured version. Hope this helps you guys!

Incompatibility canon camera powershot a520 and windows7

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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.

Picture project not detecting camera since installed windows 7, how do we download pictures now. camera is being detected by pc so it doesnt appear to be a hardware issue, nikon resource center say they...

You could try the folowings:

1) Run your picture project program under XP SP 2 'compatibilty mode'.

2) Run the picture project program in XP mode if your computer and version of Windows 7 allows it (eg. Professional or Ultimate versions but your computer processor will need to support 'hardware virtualization).

3) Run the program in a Virtual machine with XP installed: I would use Sun VirtualBox which is free and does not need hardware virtualisation (unlike windows 7 'native' XP mode or VPC2007).

As you can see, you do have some options to overcome Windows 7 shortcomings! Hope it helps.

New internet service now Savin C3030 won't work

Reinstall the printer on your operating system. For example, Windows XP is probably still trying to print to the old IP address. You will need to find out the new IP address of the printer and tell your operating system to print to that new ip address.

Camera will detect camera then come up with error message

What Operating system is your Lappie? If it is XP or 2000 no driver required. Best advice is to remove the camera soft ware from the computer. Plug the camera in and Windows will detect it as a new drive in My Computer. The best advice for software supplied with cameras is - Leave it in the Box and let WINDOWS DO THE WORK
