With a card reader, you can move all the photos from your digital camera to computer. After that, you can take advantage of iTunes to transfer photos to your iPad. This should be easy, but please note that the RAW files takes much more storage space than the JPEG files, so you'd better take a look at your storage space of your iPad before you import photos from camera to iPad.

Use the umbilical cord designed to connect the camera to your usb inputs on computer. Then using windows explorer you transfer the files over.

The Olympus website does not have any downloads for this model. But My brother has the exact same camera.  I could get a copy of his software for you. (I think it's called Olympus Master)., I just need a way to send it to you....   Do you know how to use FTP software??

It sure can! Take a look at the 4 way selection button that surrounds the OK button.You'll see the lightning bolt looking symbol on the right side. When the camera is set to take still pictures and not in macro mode you simply push to that button on that right side and the camera will show the possible flash settings listed on the left side of the LCD screen.

To select a setting push up or down on the same square section button. If you highlight the circle with the line through it, and then press OK to set it, be no flash when you shoot.

From my experience using many different digitals I've found the flash to be pretty much the main problem when trying to get a good picture and have found that turning it off and providing more external lighting is always the best way to get a good consistant picture.

On most cameras with Macro mode options, the flash will be turned off automatically since it's going to be adjusting for very close up shots. Depending on brand can be set for 2-3 feet and as close to 6 inches. I found using the Macro setting to work best for me on any shot that is within 3 feet or closer. I shoot hundreds of eBay pictures every week and always use Macro and never a flash to get the most realistic color reproduction and clearest shots.

Clean the charger terminals (the metal) and the plastice tray.

Make sure light has gone from read to green for the battery in the charger.

You may also need to take a can of air (dust off or something similar) and blow out the area the battery goes into.

Also make sure the battery is installed correctly.

I hope this helps.

It could be the battery, the charger, dirty contacts either on the battery, the charger, or the camera. And, of course, there's the possibility that the camera itself is bad.

If you have a voltmeter, try measuring the voltage between the battery terminals. Clean the contacts on the battery, charger, and camera with a clean damp cloth. Try charging the battery again.

There is a small switch that tells the camera if the battery door is closed or not, if you can find it see if one of the contacts are bent or if the contacts are corroded, straighten if bent, clean if dirty and try it again

A replacement battery will cost you about $20. Whether that is cost-effective for you or not is entirely your decision.

If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones.
All the download links listed in the article are through CNET, primarily to verify that these are malware free software, and to give you a chance to read user reviews on the software before downloading.

"Another way I found was when this happens, to push the battery to the point the light will turn on, when it starts flashing slide it off then back on. Do this a few times so it charges a little, then you should be fine to leave it on."

I tried to do this with my LI-10C Olympus charger and it worked..The blinking red light turns to solid red..Thanks for the info...Now I won't be bothering to buy a new batt.or have my charger checked..

When I turn my camera on, the lens goes in and out a few times. Once it's finally on and I look at the screen, everything is blurry. When I take the picture, it's blurry too. If I try to use the zoom to adjust, the lens starts going in and out all crazy and won't adjust right.

The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
