How do I transfer pictures from my camera to a computer using OLYMPUS Master 2?

To transfer pictures from the camera to a computer using OLYMPUS Master 2, follow the instructions below.


  1. Turn off the camera. Connect the camera to the computer with the provided USB cable.

     - To transfer pictures from the internal camera memory, remove the memory card (e.g. xD-Picture Card) from the camera before connecting the camera to the computer. When a memory card is in the camera, the pictures in the internal memory cannot be transferred.

     - Use a fully charged battery or an AC adapter when transferring pictures to avoid loss of power during transfer. (Depending on the camera, the AC adapter may not be available or it may be sold separately.) If the camera stops during the data transfer, the pictures may be destroyed.

     - Connect the USB cable directly to a USB port on the computer.
    If connected via a USB hub, data transfer may not be successful.

  2. The LCD monitor on the camera will turn on automatically.
    The display will vary based on the camera.

    Many models will display a selection screen like this one:
