E-P3: Cannot transfer images to computer
Aug 15, 2012

Just posted this in the Olympus forum but thought I should put it here as well:

I hope that someone here will be able to help me.

I just received my new E-P3 a few hours ago and was only able once to transfer my images to my computer (direct via USB, no Olympus Viewer). Shot some more images, returned, hooked camera up via USB and now am unable to get the computer to recognize the camera at all. There is also no "transfer screen" displayed on the camera ("USB..."). I either get the message to unlock the lens, or I can review my images on the camera but no connection is made between the E-P3 and the PC.

Olympus Viewer does not see it either, and I am getting the same result on my laptop which leads me to believe that it is either the camera itself or the cable.

Has anyone had this problem, and if so: How was it solved?

Thanks a lot!
