Stylus 770 SW Camera - causes Power Surge on USB port
\015 We have a Stylus 770 SW. Today I charged the battery then attempted to transfer the images to my pc following the normal procedure. However as soon as I connected the USB cable to the pc USB port it came up with a message about a power surge on the port. In fact both ports were blown.This occurred a few months ago as well. To fix it that time I had to call out a technician which, as you can imagine, cost me a good deal of money. I'm pretty sure that time I had also just charged the camera battery. Olympus are refusing to accept responsibility.\015
Blown USB ports can happen. Most of the time, they still move power...like you can still charge devices through them, but the device won't be recognized. See if a hub will work.

Card setup When I turn on the camera, it goes straight into "Card Setup". My only options are to "Format" (i.e. erase the memory card) or "Power Off".
