Having difficulty..any help appreciated.

Trying to transfer digipics from camera to pc via Start/My Pictures/Get
pictures from Camera or Scanner ...but then get message that the computer
cannot detect the scanner or camera.

I CAN transfer pics from camera to pc using Microsoft Scanner and Camera
Wizard...but not via My Pictures/Get pics from Camera.

Any thoughts,

Thanks,
John

I'm guessing that you're using a USB connection. You should be able to plug
the USB cable into your digicam and click on my computer and access it that
way.

Thanks for that.
Yes its a USB cable connection.
But again when I do Start/My Computer/click the camera icon under Scanners
and Cameras/Get Pictures from Camera I get message that the computer cannot
detect the scanner or camera.

There may be software it needs - depending on the camera.. Have you
installed it?

Yes I've installed the software.....further info...
My pc is not recognising my camera - its an Olympus 5050
The camera hardware shown listed are Olympus 5050 and Olympus D-500L
In My Computer the icon shown is named Olympus D-500L
I'm wondering if this is the problem.
I'd like to delete all reference to the Olympus D-500L - How do I do that?
Thanks,
John

Hi,
Thanks for the comments.
Good news - got it sorted...at least via My Computer which will
do!...problem turned out to be because I had the wrong camera description
loaded....when all reference to cameras was deleted via device manager,
then, when camera connected a Removable disc H appeared in My Computer...and
clicking a couple of times accessed the pics..goodho :-)
Thank again,
John
