    (First thread and already bitchin! Search function needs sorting - excuse the pun; search parameter 'E-P3' returned too many erroneous threads.)

    Has anyone in the forum had any problems connecting the E-P3 to a PC?

    Connected the cable to the PC (automatically turned on the camera so I'm guessing the cable isn't faulty); selected 'Storage' from drop down menu; camera displays 'One Moment' but then nothing? Let it sit for about 10 minutes and still nothing, either on the camera or the PC?

    Hmm, I have not had this problem. Have you tried to see whether it is any better in "MTP" mode? What software do you normally use for importing?

    What OS is the PC running? On my Win7 PC, I get the audible kabomp sound when a USB device is connected and than an autoplay window comes up asking what to do. Sometimes, I get the sound only and no autoplay window. Then I have to navigate to "my computer" and select the drive represented by the camera. Either way, the camera screen stays black after the "One Moment".
