The USB socket (both 1.1 and 2.0) should be standard on the computer side, 
don't know if the early laptops are different. The plug to the camera is now 
also a standard mini-USB (in the pass some Olympus has non-standard mini-USB 
socket) for most if not all camera manufacturers.

The Olympus software working or not I think is depends on the OS, 98SE or 
above should be ok, but a 166MHz CPU could be too slow. I upgraded to 3.2GHz 
due to the high number of editing job required since shooting digital. I 
shoot at least 5 times more than before even finally I may get the same 
number of keepers and I have to check and compare one by one to screen out 
the similar but poorer images. With slide I won't scan all the frames and 
screening is done before shooting.
