    I finally installed the Olympus software onto my computer to have access to software updates. I have updated to the newest version of the software but now when I open the software it won't recognize my OMD. I'm using a Macbook Air and have never had issues with things being recognized before but for some reason it won't pop up so I can update. Anyone have any ideas?

    After connecting the camera, do you turn it on and select 'storage' on the camera? Unlike earlier Olympuses it doesn't turn on automatically when connected.

    And by slect the prior writer means to press the OK button. No where does it tell you to do this. The screen will show the menu but storage must be selected.

    On the EPL5 you can in the menus set it to automatically select storage so you don't have to press a button when you connect to your computer. I presume you can on the EM5 as well.
