I have had an E550 for just 10 days but have had terible trouble with downloading the pictures to my PC. The installation process looks good until I get to MicroStaff WINASPI. This gives an error about being unable to create a file in C:\windows\system32\winaspi.DLL The installation then completes but will not work properly (using XP) .
What happens is that the PC recognises the camera and displays a list of files and then 20 seconds later loses communication with the camera. This is regained after another 20 seconds and the on-off cycle continues endlessly. The same thing happens with Windows Explorer.
Has anybody else experienced this and does anybody have a cure please?
I have only one USB attached (the camera), power adapter on (not batteries) and followed the instructions to the letter. Sometimes immediately after installation it does work quite well for a while but reverts to the problem above on the second and subsequent uses of the software.
