I hope somebody out there can guide me on this as I just don't know what to do. I've down loaded the software (Camedia) which came with the camera without any problems, but it says you only need to download the driver with Windows 98 (I have Windows 2000), and it gave no option to install it.
On connecting the camera to the computer, according to the instructions, the 'Add New Hardware Wizard' should appear and do everything without any further action on my part. However, it said something like the driver wasn't found (I can't get the message again as it only shows the Wizard box the first time you connect). I have tried what it says to do in the manual - which is mainly to check the device manager to see that the camera is listed (which it isn't). I have two devices listed with yellow exclammation marks by them - 'USB Device' and 'PCI Simple communications controller'.
When I try to use the Hardware Wizard to find the drivers (with the Camedia CD inserted) I get the message "An error occurred during the installation of the device. The installation failed because function driver was not specified for this device instance"
I have been to the Olympus website but can't get much joy from there, or find the specific driver for the camera, which surely much be on the CD anyway or in Windows 2000.
Any help would be greatly appreciated - I'm tearing my hair out! Thanks.
