Please wait for a moment until the warning message disappears and the Access lamp extinguishes. The normal operation will resume soon. The start-up time of the IBM Microdrive, until it becomes readable by DiMAGE 7, takes longer than Compact Flash. In the meantime the camera may not detect card existence.

What does the card error mean


Can be lots of things. Would have been handy, if you had told what card you are using. Your camera can work with CompactFlash, Microdrive and xD-Picture cards.
If you did not insert the card(s) you are using, correct, or you removed the card in a wrong way, you could have damaged the cardholder, causing an error you probably can't repair yourself. The CF and Microdrive you can remove by pressing the eject button. The xD-Picture card you can remove by pressing in the card, and release it. The card comes out.
Then you could have damaged the file system, by opening the card cover, while the card access lamp was blinking. What ever card was in, the filesystem can be damaged.
Then you can have two cards in, Both, o CF of Microdrive and a xD picture card. Some settings are required for the camera, to know hat card it should use.
If you have an Microdrive, the drive can be damaged, by a magnetic file, or the drive just stopped rotating. A micro drive is actual a miniature spinning hard drive.

First check if the memory card is inserted correct. Eventually, remove it and check all contacts, on the card and in the camera. Then try formatting the card. If you think there could be important pictures on the card, put it in a external card reader and use a recovery program, to see you can recover the pictures on your computer. Programs can be found on the net.
If you can't format the card, check if you have a Microdrive. If so, try to replace that with a CF or xD card.
I hope something is to any use for you.

Next time, please give us some more details. I know you exactly see and know what is not working, but we only can use your description. And only what you give us.

Where do I put the microdrive?


You saw that the microdrive fits where the memory card goes?

My NIKON D70 has trouble with flash cards larger than 2 G.


The D70 has known issues with certain cards / capacities. Nikon has identified the cards and capacities that are guaranteed to work with the D70 specifically, on their page dedicated to this info linked below:

http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/9601

It seems that only Lexar and Microdrive cards that are 4Gb are supported (some with significant limitations) and no card greater than 4Gb is supported at all, regardless of manufacturer.

Windows can't see images from my Hitachi Microdrive


In the first instance you should never format a media card/drive for a camera in a computer Windows does not know about the file type cameras need. Now getting your pictures back www.konvar.com - has PC Inspector Download and install this and run it through the card -preferably in a card reader, rather than still in the camera.

Program Zoom browser won't download pictures from the camera.


Uninstall and reinstall the Zoombrowser. It looks like a driver or something with the program is corrupt. But, first read on before doing anything.

But, before doing the above, check the software and camera configuration. Also check to see that there are no other active programs running in the computer that may be taking presidence over the Canon software and accessing control of the camera's port, thus blocking Canon's software from being able to read the camera.

You can try calling Canon's tech support and ask the question. They will know their product the best.

Microdrive:
A microdrive can fail much easier than a solid state memory card. I have had them fail. Mircodrives are fairly fragile compared to memory cards. Microdrives are mechanical devices. The new generation of memory cards are excellent.

I have an old digital camera with an IBM 1 GB microdrive. The present drive still works! It was terribly expensive when I bought it about 4 years ago. I am now using a 2 GB solid state memory card. I found it to be superior to the old microdrive.

The camera shuts down without giving any warning. Is the camera defective?


Such a symptom may occur because alkaline batteries have a characteristic that reduces the capacity sharply during use. The DiMAGE 7 is designed to have a margin before it shuts itself down even if the battery is exhausted while saving the capture image data to a Compact Flash. The data will not be lost. Because it consumes more power than other Compact Flash cards for operation and data storage, users of IBM Microdrive must use Nickel Metal Hydride cells.

Epson 850Z and ibm microdrive


While my epson batteries were charging, I used a set of alkalines, and something similar to that happened to me (had to re-set time a bunch). When I pulled the batteries out, they were warm enough that the little built in test strip (a thermal lcd) was 'lit up'. It could be a battery load problem.

The E-20N power supply circuitry is designed differently from the power supply circuitry of the E-10, enabling it to work with the IBM Microdrive.
