Which model camera would be helpful as Olympus has different software packages for different cameras.

Also, have you verified that your USB ports function properly?

Actually, as I think about it, Olympus does not have a driver as much as a full software package. If your camera did not come with a Camedia software CD, they are offered all the time on Ebay.

This will install Olympus's own imaging software and GUI to download images and adjust camera settings.

Windows XP "should" recognize the camera as a removable drive and allow you to download the images manually.

My preferred method to download my digital images is to use a memory reader.

For older Olympus camera's the Smart Media readers should be on clearance almost everywhere.

For the newer cameras, xD media readers are a little harder to come by, but you can find them at most of the major office supply and computer stores.
Check the specifications closely, as many multi-format media readers do not read xD cards.

Most HP photo printers with media slots do accept and read xD cards.

I checked on Ebay, and version 4 of Camedia is going for around $15 - $20 (US) with shipping.

You can also try the Windows 2000 USB driver for the C-2100 posted here:

Or, give the method in the "Auto-Connect USB Instruction Manual" linked on this page:

a try.

Digital Camera doesn't need driver for XP. Must be a command for your camera for transferring data between camera and computer. You can use Adobe Photoshop, ACDSee to manage images.

I agree with the Chas
I always prefer the memory card reader, and they do not cost $140+
