I haven't used my Olympus FE-20 camera for about half a year, and I just brought it out to take pictures of the snow. Everything was great, but then I had to search for the cord to upload it. I found one that fit perfectly and connected it to a USB port, but none of my three computers notify me of it connecting, nor does it appear in the "my computer" screen. The sd card that came with it doesn't fit in any of the sd slots on the computers, so I'm stuck. I just downloaded the cd that came with i

I was using my M763 model and taking pictures just fine. Then, I went to take a pic and the LCD was dark. I clicked the review button, nothing happened, so I turned it off and it wouldn't turn back on. When I try to turn it on it flashes green for a nano sec, then red a couple of times, then nothing. When I plug the USB cable into the camera and my computer USB port nothing happens, but earlier I was able to upload pics okay. So what's up?
