Olympus Camera Updater updated to version 1.21
 
Olympus Camera Updater has now been updated to version 1.2.1 so it is a good idea to have it updated to be ready for the E-M1 & E-M5 II updates that will be coming later this month. Oly America says late November & some have info to say it is on 25th November. I was notified of the Updater update through Olympus Viewer 3.

Thanks Ross. Now done, although I was surprised it required a computer restart.

I'm surprised too, because I didn't need to (with the update happening through OV3) with Win7.

Ron,
Where did you locate this update download?
I already have Updater v1.2.0 (from November 2014). Today when I downloaded and tried to install the Updater from either of the Oly UK or Oly Europe sites, the installation process announced that "you already have the latest version installed" and then terminated.

I used OV3. I started up the application and then clicked on 'update' at the top of the screen. It checked for software updates and then installed it.

Re: Olympus Camera Updater updated to version 1.21
 
I have never installed OV3 and don't even know where the disc is so that is a dead end for me. So I guess that for the time being Camera Updater 1.21 is unavailable for me or is there anywhere it can be downloaded from without using OV3? Otherwise I am like Chris and am stuck with ver 1.2.
What I wonder is the difference between 1.2 and 1.21? Bug fix?

You can download these from the Olympus website Mike.

Just to be clear as there is some confusion from others elsewhere, I did the update within OV3 with the resulting update to 1.2.1 as seen in this screen shot of the opening screen Oly DC Updater.

It seems they've also fixed the issue in the latest Mac OS El Capitan in the latest update as well.

Unfortunately the version they're offering for download is 1.2 from Sept 2014.

Well,

I thought, "what a good idea to install viewer 3 and update it ready...

So I downloaded it from the inter web, updated the software, connected the camera (which Photos and Lightroom can both see OK) and Viewer says "camera not connected!"

Updater says "camera not connected"

*really enjoying my computer at the moment*

I can't be This stupid, whatever am I doing wrong now?

(Mac OSX 11.11.1, plenty of RAM and disk space)

When you connect your camera to the Mac/PC, and switch the camera on ...
The display should list some options ...
You need to select and click 'Storage' then your Mac/PC (and Olympus Viewer/Updater) should be able to see the camera.
