Is there a site where I can download the Olympus Master Software that came with my E-500?

The CD that I got with the camera is BAD. I have tried it in 3 different computers, and it will not work. Can not read the CD

Love the Camera, would like to install the software.

Contact Olympus for a replacement CD (have your camera's serial number handy in case), or talk to the dealer you bought the camera from and ask what they can do for you.

Well finally got an OLD 8x CD-ROM Drive I had on the Shelf to read the CD, So I just make a copy and now all is fine on all the newer drives. :?

So Strange, Guess it is good to keep my old stuff on the shelf.

Whew, I'm happy to hear you got it running, but I do find it strange that it wouldn't on your newer drives.

At least now you get to play......

I know, they newer drives would just Click. Thought it might be a computer problem, that is why I tried it on 3 other computers. But the OLD CD-Rom drived hooked up to the First computer worked fine.

Every once in a while I get a call about this. Olympus is silent on the issue. I just know that olympus as an entity or a company is a little tightwad about giving away new cds. Mostly they suggest sending olympus the cd to be evaluated and then the customer can get a new cd. I am glad you found a suitable solution.
