Thread: Auto-Connect USB

  1. #1

    Default Auto-Connect USB

    Why call it Auto-Connect USB when it is not auto.

    I have to select Control or Storage manually every time I connect my camera to PC. If I start Olympus Studio first, and select control then I start Olympus master, then I am not able to contact my camera, unless I switch the camera off and on and select storage. But then Olympus Studio will complain that I do not have a camera connected. For me this is 'Manual Connect USB' to 100% and a very irritating one.

    What do you think? Maybe you never use Studio or Master, so you don't care.

    Are you sure you clicked on 'Transfer Images' button? Just seeing the small slide images is not the same as images downloaded from camera. You have to mark and then click on 'Transfer Images' button to download. Initially all slides are marked, so a click on 'Transfer Images' button will start to download all images.

    I think Olympus Master is a disgrace of software design, nothing to be proud of, but it is working flawlessly and reliable as far as I know. If you have problem, I would suggest you uninstall, and then install with all the default settings and try again. If it still not working, contact Oly by phone or mail. They are usually very nice and helpful.

    Thanks for some pointers to the issue.
    Shall try later, any way, already deleted the software and use other like Nikon software to downloaded, it worked perfectly. Unless, Olympus Master has superior functions for editing and other sort, may try it later, please advise.
    Cheers

    I agree, the Oly Master is not very user friendly but the Oly Studio is a different thing all together. I don't think you can control Oly camera or edit Oly RAW using N software. However, none of these has actually anything to do with the cameras Auto connect function. Correction, if it should Auto connect, at least Oly could have fixed to Auto connect to Oly software.

    Master = Studio = E-500 Auto-Connect USB =
