20 Most Recent Olympus C-3000 Zoom Digital Camera Questions & Answers


Have you ever accidentally deleted pictures from your cameras memory card? Or pressed the Format button instead of delete button and wiped your card clean?
However, there are also a lot of good open source / freeware apps out there that can usually get the job done. And that’s where the nice people at CONVAR come in – offering a program called PC Inspector Smart Recovery , which can recover lost pictures for free. What’s even better is that it’s extremely easy to use and works well (based on my tests).
Please note that after you’ve lost the picture, DO NOT take any more pictures on the memory card, as writing new data to the card lowers your chances of recovering the picture. Also note, that recovering the picture is not 100% guaranteed, but there’s a good chance your picture will be recovered.


Step by step instruction, here it is: 1: Download PC INSPECTOR Smart Recovery.
2: Connect your memory card, either by a little memory card reader, or hook your camera up to the PC via the data cable.
3: Run PC INSPECTOR Smart Recovery.
4: Select the drive which is the memory card. It should be the one that has just connected.
5: Leave the format type as .JPG.
6: Choose a destination for the recovered files.
7: Press ‘Start’.

Hope helped with this. Good luck.

You don't need a driver.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Soun dlike a problem with CCD (Charge Coupled Device) sensor; when a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; this, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.

here are the manuals in 4 part downloads

just in case you have lost yours. It says to format the card, and check to see if the write protect is on on the card. you may have a bad card as well. I know you said you have never used the card, but this doesnt mean it is a good card, it only means it doesnt work. If you have a friend with a working card, first take all the photos off his card then try it in your camera to see if it works.

You should be able to find card readers at just about any electronics or office-supply store. Just make sure you get one compatible with SmartMedia cards. The brand, as well as whether it plugs directly into a USB port or uses a short cable, are matters of personal preference.

Hi.

The camera is powering up. When problem is battery the camera beeps flashing the number of pictures, then turns off.

I think that the problem is not the battery, but an internal failure. In that case there are parts that may need replacement. The camera must be taken apart and tested by a technician.

You can get a quote on repair calling Olympus or using this form to contact a third party service:Repair.

Regards.

Ginko.

I have searched and searched as well. At the end I settled on using a Memory Card Reader to transfer the images to my computer.

I'll advise the same. Card Readers are now available for less than 5 pounds/dollars/euros.
