Olympus Camera Software Question

Discussion in 'Olympus' started by Lou Leciejewski, Feb 18, 2006.

  1. I have an Olympus D-360L Digital Camera and just tried to import some new
    pictures to my PC (Windows 98) and the software would not allow me to do
    the task. I did an uninstall on the Camedia Olympus Software with no
    problem. I have the original Software Installation Disk and thought I would
    reinstall the software but when I insert the CD the automatic installation
    wizard does not open. I then went to see what is on the CD and tried to
    click on each of the icons to see if that would open the program and it
    also will not work. Has anyone ever had to do a reinstall of their Olympus
    D-360L Camedia Software? I tried the tollfree number but they are not
    online for weekends so I will call Monday. Perhaps I need a fresh
    installation CD?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Lou

  2. Thanks all for the advice ... I will check into the card reader after I
    call Olympus Monday and see why when I insert the Olympus software CD it
    won't reinstall on my PC. Something got corrupted in the Olympus software
    an everytime I'd want to open the software program to download pictures
    from the camera to the PC the software would lock up and I'd have to reboot
    the PC so I uninstalled the Olympus software. I think my serial port is ok
    there is something that went amiss with the Olympus software.

    Thanks

    Lou

  3. Thanks for the reply Keith, I will check your page out. I called olympus
    today and they sai that since I have Windows 98 they have had problems.The
    Customer Service Rep at Olympus had me install the CamMedia CD and click on
    the "SETUP" Icon ... that did nothing so he said that maybe something is
    stuck in the Register and that I should have the Register swept on my PC
    and they try and re-install the CamMedia Software CD. I have swept my PC
    for ADWARE & SPYWARE but never a Register so is there any free Register
    Sweep Software out there that I could try this? Anyone ever have to do
    this? The Olympus Rep said that if I buy a Reader Card and that my PC has
    USB ports I should be able to use the direct method by reading the card
    from the camera directly to the PC BUT... due wo Windows 98 (I have the
    first edition) it MAY not work. ANy other suggestions are welcome... any
    comments?

    Thanks

    Lou

  4. Try this

    http://www.nabocorp.com/cam2pc/

    I used to use it....but the real solution is to get a card reader. There was
    an earlier version of cam2pc that did little more than download from the
    camera....that may still be available somewhere as freeware.

  5. Thanks Gene for the tip ... Yes, there is a cam2pc freeware version
    that I found and downloaded. It looks very similar to the Olympus
    Camedia Software that came with my canera. I will try it soon with the
    Olympus Camera and see what happens.
