Trouble is the link Olympus sent me to download the software is broken. I get the Error 404 message "
The page cannot be found

The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable."
I have copied and pasted the link to the address bar as well as just clicking it in the email.

Re: Connect E400 to Win 7 PC

Studio 2 is no longer available or supported and it was a commercial package (you had to buy it).

I have successfully used Trigger Trap which is a system for taking pictures remotely using a smartphone or tablet:

Graham on this forum has been hacking the Trigger Trap system:

You can buy the necessary hardware for about £30:

Thanks for the info. It is a bit much of Olympus to continue to advertise a product that is no longer available even to the extent of at my request thaey sent me a link to download the trial version.
The other links are interesting but I don't think they will cover my particular needs. I have a Canon HD camcorder that I can use remotely so if push comes to shove I can always use that either in video mode then save individual frames of my choice or use it in the photo mode. But i really want the quality that my Olympus in RAW mode wil give! I'll experiment a bit and see how I get on.
Many thanks for your help.

Can you let me know where it is still being advertised?

Re: Connect E400 to Win 7 PC

Not sure if this will help, I have/had Oly Viewer 2 which I updated - supposedly to the latest version - for W7 use and it didn't work.

Downloaded V3 and installed as a new program and everything fell into place.

I had the same fault - camera not found - V3 as said, I use W7 Pro 64 and as a fresh install worked for me.

The only requirement - as I found - to download V3 is the camera serial number.

Re: Connect E400 to Win 7 PC

Hi Ian
I Googled "Olympus Studio 2 download" which led me to this link:
https://emporium.olympus.com/studiomaster2/Studio.aspx
This led me to this page:

I completed the form which generated this email;

Thanks for that but you will see from my earlier post that I had the wrong setting on the camera menu. That solved my camera recognition problem. Thanks anyway!
