Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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). 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 any photo management program such as Picasa.

In the camera menu system there should be a place to choose the size of the JPEG file. Try find a setting with 'small' or something.
If you don't fint it, try check the manual... Good luck! :)

I have the same model and I sort of took a page out of Solution #2.
I don't have electronic technician experience so I took one main insight: The Poor Design of the Conduction in the bottom cover.
Here's what I did: I took some Copper Wire (mine came from the wire you use to hang paintings) and some Aluminum Foil.
Next I wrapped the Copper Wire with the Foil. The piece was roughly slightly bigger than 1/2 of a Postage Stamp.
Then I inserted this metal square over the batteries and closed the cover.
I found that I could take more shots without the camera saying Battery Empty.
See if this works. So far it's touchy but it's been taking more photos than before.

You need to bend the metal tabs on the battery door so they make good contact with your batteries. Good Luck.

After wasting many hours searching for someone that had the recommended Panasonic 1.7v batteries in stock (versus the standard 1.5v battery found everywhere) and trying a couple of suggestions to improve the battery / terminal contact, I decided on trying the solution provided by blackduk on this thread (https://www.fixya.com/support/t1595282-olympus_fe_310_battery_problems), with very slight modification.

First I just placed the capacitor across the terminals and closed the battery door. It increased my shots per battery from about 10 to about 50. (Not great, but probably because the connection wasn't even as good as a 'cold solder'.) But it was enough of an improvement, and as the battery door never closed properly with this 'fix', I decided to go with soldering. Afterwards, I went through two battery sets in testing. Both times I got in excess of 300 images, with flash on all photos and zooming in and out while the flash charged!

Instructions:
Accessing the terminals was easy. Just remember, it is the thin front panel of the camera that comes off (after removing 6 screws). Facing the lens, the 4 long screws need to be returned to the right side and bottom of the camera. The 2 short screws need to be returned to the left of the camera. Measure and clip the wires on the capacitor. Have a hot iron. (Initially I didn't have it hot enough and singed the plastic trying to get a good join. Hotter for a shorter period makes a better solder and won't melt the plastic.) Tin the terminals. Grip your capacitor wire with needle nose pliers, hemostats or some other heat-sink when soldering. Do it. (Mine is far from a pretty piece of work, but functionally it is perfect - and you can't see my goofs once the face plate is back on.)

Parts:
I ordered the capacitors from Talon Electronics. I got Axial, instead of Surface Mount, with the same specifications blackduk provided. A quantity of five, Item Number TNC0019, 2.2uF 10V Molded Axial Tantalum Capacitors, cost me $7.23. That included shipping (they were .25¢ each). I ordered through www.talonix.com.

Good Luck,
Andrew

its not your camera..
all Olympus FE 310 cameras have that problem
the manual for the camera says that the best batteries for the camera are the Panasonic Oxyride ones.. ive reasearched them and read reviews.. all the customer reviews say that theyre the best for cameras that die out quickley (like the Olympus FE 310)

I personally havent tried them yet because i dont know were to get them but you should look into it.. see of you like them.. they might be the right ones for your camera..
