    In regular mode, if you slightly depress the shutter button the camera
    will hold the focus. This is not the case in macro, and your movement
    will cause the camera to re-focus.

    I have Windows XP, and download via the USB port. No problem. You
    may have to re-install the USB settings. It is not the camera that is
    recognized, but the USB connection.

    The camera came with some sort of program for downloading. I've never
    used it. I use the Windows function. The only time I have problems
    is when the system seems to think my scanner is using the port. I
    just turn off the scanner. This only happens occasionally.

    detail 
    In another recent thread - on photographing jewelry - it was suggested that
    you will get a better image of a small object by placing it on a scanner. I
    just tried that with a quarter on my scanner, which I set at 2400 dpi.
    Excellent detail.

    Choose your digicam with care. One of the reasons I chose and continue to use
    my Olympus C-2500L is the ability to focus down to 0.8" in "super macro mode."
