The first program is called KCamedia. It allows to download imags from
older Olympus Camedia cameras. It uses the serial line, and does not support
newer models with USB.
My latest camera is again an Olympus Camedia C220 - now with USB connection. But there are some difficulties to use it with Linux. Here a pragmatic solution.
The second program is KHdRecord. It allows to record sound-files from the soundcard directly on the harddisk. You can use it like a tape-recorder. I wrote the program to sample my old phono LP's. You can sample into wave or directly into MP3.
