I'm new to my camera ... I have an E-300 evolt. I just purchased a 70-300 mm lens off of eBay. I connected it to the camera and then I checked for any updates through the Olympus site. During installation, we lost power and now, whenever I turn on the computer and connect it to the USB connection and choose "storage" it is stuck on "one moment."

If I disconnect it from the USB and go into the menu settings, it says my firmware is 1.5 for the body and 1.0 for the lens.

I cannot, however, get past the "one moment" screen to upload my photos (I realize I can get a card reader, but ... have I done any damage?"

So have I done any damage or is there any way to get past this "one moment" frozen screen? I have tried to open the firmware updating software and it does NOT recognize that my camera is connected to my PC.

Hi, as a first step, check that the dial on the top is set to "A", this may be all you need to reset the menu.

No. I tried that. I tried doing a reset (using the menu options), and I also tried doing a "hard" reset by holding the display / ok keys. Having the dial on "A" did nothing.

When I plug the camera into the PC via the USB cord and choose "storage," it is stuck on "one moment."

This happened after I tried to update the firmware for my new 70-300 mm lens and lost power during the process.

HELP please ...

You could try removing the battery from the camera and leaving it out for at least 24 hours, failing that it looks like a call to Olympus service for some advice.
