This is my first post here, but after reading Axes's questions concerning the Olympus studio, I figured I'd post mine as well. I am using an e300, and am not able to connect the camera in camera control mode. I've tried it on 2machines now. The message I get is: "The application is unable to find a camera in camera control mode. Make sure the camera is connected to a computer and that [PC mode] on the camera menu is set to [Control]mode"
The camera is set to control mode from the pc mode menu, and I am able to access the images by from the camera in raw mode. Anybody experienced any similar problems or have any sage wisdom on the matter?
Thanks for any help you can give
I would use a card reader. They are usually faster if you get one that is USB 2. They also are fairly inexpensive, in the $15-30 range. My Lexar multi format reader was only about $25 and reads almost any card ever made.
One possible problem you may be having with your camera is that the camera end of your cable has very tiny pins, which
could possibly be bent be bent.
With the CAMERA in CONTROL mode, the computer displays pictures ON the computer as they are taken.
Leave the camera in storage mode and plug it into the computer; if you are running Windows XP, the camera/scanner Wizard should come up automatically.
Dave is right aboutgetting a card reader; you will not use up the camera batts as quickly using it as when plugging directly to the computer.
I had the same error when connecting an E-500 to a PC running Windows XP SP2. Finally I installed the Olympus XP driver for the E-1 and rebooted. Now it connects to my camera every time.
Supposedly this driver is just for the E-1, but it apparently fixed the problem.
