I've used Camedia 4.1 for my first stylus and also for my Stylus 810, since the Camedia 4.1 does panos and the one that came with the 810 doesn't. Camedia 4.1 worked well on Windows ME.

So yesterday I got a new laptop with Windows Vista. Camedia loaded up ok on it but the filepathway doesn't show any albums under Album even though they are there, with photos in them. Searching Vistafor specific albums and photos yields no finds. Where are they hiding? :?

Perhaps there are other incompatibility issues... Anyone who knows the answer(s) please let me know!

Thanks,

Hi: My laptop also uses Vista, but I downloaded the new Olympus Master 2.0 right afterI got the computer, andit runs fine. You could first update your Camedia 4.1 software. That may solve your problem. The update downloads are free. Go to:

Good luck,

Thanks, Steven. I did upgrade Camedia 4.1 to Camedia 4.3, but it didn't make the pathway any clearer, doesn't let me transfer directly from the camera to Camedia, and doesn't recognize the pano shots as panos. Other than that, it could work ok.

I thought I'd give the Olympus Master 1.41 that came with my Stylus 810 a try though. And yucccchhhh! Not only is group/folder option much more limited than in Camedia 4.1/4.3 (it defaults to dates), but as far as I can tell so far, it offers way less editing options than Camedia. Just a crop, quick-fix, red-eye, and color balance. Not much. Maybe I'm missing something, and maybe I've just gotten too used to Camedia. I also use Picasa and like how it works, though it seems there's a little less control than with Camedia.

As it looks now though, I'll probably give it a look or two more. But by tomorrow, I'll probably be ready to uninstall it and reinstall good old Camedia.

Hi: A couple of thoughts; the Master 2.0 is a big improvement of the old versions, and the price is right. I think you will like it much better than the old Master.

Also, there is free photo editor that I have usedoften, and it works well. It's called Photofiltre. It's really easy to do quick touch-ups on my shots.

http://www.photofiltre.com/

Another thought, I always use my card reader to download my photos directly from the card. I don't like to connect the camera to the computer; besides the drain on the battery, it's too easy for an accident to knock the camera off and hit the floor. With the card reader, you're using Windows Explorer to save the shots to whatever folder you made for the shots; really simple.

Anyway, keep trying and good luck. I hope you hit the right combination for your computer. Let me know if you get it working smoothly.
