Hi all,

Trying to connect my E-1 to the computer and Windows makes the customary two beeps when switching the camera on, but if you try to access anything, it says "cannot detect the camera". I do have the camera in "Control". USB or Firewire connection produces the same result. I have tried resetting the camera to defaults, but to no avail. One thing that does happen is the CF card does show up in My Computer as another drive to write and read files from. The firmware update part is definately not working. Any ideas? Thanks.

thanks for the reply

When running the "Update Firmware" in Olympus Master, it will not detect that the camera is connected to the computer.

I have had these problems with my e-300:

1. you don't use "control" but "storage" to test for updates
2. the USB will probably not work via an unpowered USB port (i.e. it won't necessarily work if you connect to a USB hub even if you can fetch your photos through this)
3. the Master must be the latest version
