Hi, I recently purchased the E-500 and installed the software. The software works fine, but when I try to import a picture with adobe 2.0 my laptop can't find the camera. An older model olympus is listedon my hard drive. Do I need to download a driver or update...where would I find this....thanks, donna

Are you running XP? There should be a driver on the CD, or go to this link:

Also, check to see if your camera in Setup Menu 2, PC MODE is set to either AUTO or STORAGE.

Hi, yes I am running XP. I will try your other suggestions. On my hard drive there was an olympus camera, but an outdated model...probably new at the time I bought my toshiba, about 3-4 years ago. The software runs, but there is no indication of my E-500 on my hard drive. I would have thought when I loaded the software, my new camera would have been recognize by my computer. So when I am in adobe 2.0 and in the drop down menu hit import picture, adobe tells me it can't find the camera. I know I need to upgrade for raw files, but wonder if I wouldn't have the same problem with 4.0. And yes the usb cable is set to auto. Found driver...dg

Hi, may I ask one more question, if I had the opportunity to purchase an olympus camedia C-7000, is this a camera I would want to own, I heard someone talking about it on a forum and they said it was a classic camera...sounded like a nice carry around kind of camera. Thanks.

I found a USB card reader is much faster.
