Windows 7: Olympus camera photo import problem on Windows 7

Olympus camera photo import problem on Windows 7

I've been struggling to import photos from my Olympus camera on Windows 7 - regardless of control panel hardware & sound setting changes I made, I was unable to get Windows 7 to recognise the camera and automatically import the photos. Windows 7 saw the camera as a removeable disc, so I could manually copy and paste photos, but that's a pain. There's a similar and much earlier post on this site [2010], but that didn't have a solution I wanted to accept i.e. to use a card reader]. I couldn't find a solution on the Olympus or Microsoft support web pages, and google didn't find much else.

However, I eventually stumbled across a solution which works for me: attach the Olympus camera to Windows 7 and follow the advice in the Olympus manual for connecting to an Apple Mac!! Specifically, that means:
  • attach the camera to a Windows 7 USB port
  • the camera should show the "PC" option on its LCD screen
  • DON'T select PC mode - INSTEAD scroll right
  • you should now see 2 options: STORAGE and MPT
  • scroll down to MPT
  • then select OK
  • Windows 7 should now see the camera and start trying to import photos
