Having problems with your Olympus SP-350 Digital Camera ?

SP 350 When I try to transfer images from my camera I get the message "The software is unable to find an Olympus digita camera connected to your computer" This is a fairly new computer with Windows Vista. My old computer had Windows XP. The new computer is a Dell Insprion. Any thoughts? I'm stumped!


Answers :

The answer to your problem might lie with the OS you are using. For whatever reason, when Microsoft brought out Vista it broke a lot of old programs and devices that worked perfectly fine. Why backwards compatability is beyond Microsoft, I don't know, but its an unfortunate circumstance.
Here is a link to Olympus' website, and a direct link to the SP-350 download page -

I'm not sure if the drivers on the page are for Vista, its very vague but this is the first place to start.
Good luck!
