You need to plug in your Olympus, go to Device Manager in Control Panel, go
to Universal Serial Controllers, expand that, look for Composite Device.
Then hit delete on it. When asked are you sure you want to uninstall, hit
OK. Now unplug the device, restart the machine and it should work.
All the best

doesnt know its plugged in. The device says PC connection but my 8.1 PC
doesnt know its plugged in. On my previous XP Pro machine it just saw it as
I fell for the Olympus line that I needed a special USB lead (I was very
dubious) and splashed out (wasted) £10 on that, with no difference.
Tried ringing RNIB from whom I purchased it and they dont have any idea.
Olympus themselves just suggested buying the aforementioned mini USB lead.
Any ideas please folks?
