I don't use the Camedia software at all, but if I remember correctly, you cannot use it to download pictures from the 4040. When you connect the camera to the USB port, it will show up as a removable drive in windows explorer (or in the file tree in Camedia). You just copy the pictures from the camera drive to wherever you want to store them.

1. Connect the camera to the computer. 2. Turn the camera on by switching it to PLAY (the green symbol below OFF).
3. Reboot the computer.

Thank you for all the answers. I did almost everything.
I can copy all the pics via windows explorer / file manager, the only I can't do is to control the camera!!!.
Change setting, snap, etc. using pc.

If it is any consolation, I believe it happens in all of them. I have had the D100 & D380 & it is the same thing. So whatever changes I want to make, I do them manually.

Default C4040Z+Camedia 2.5

The camera settings are not adjustable via the software on the pc. The facility shows up but the message you get will stay whatever you do. It is a poor aspect of the Camedia software I'm afraid; it promises much buit delivers little!

That's is a good comment. Camedia is not good!!!. I've changed my project using
Canon camera, no more Olympus. Now I can control and snap picture via pc. Thanks Canon, good bye Olympus.

Hi,boy some people should really read the help menu. If you go to Appendix B2 Camera Settings Olympus Camedia Master 2.5 it will list the cameras that are supported.
