Before replacing the card, try to use another card and see if the problem is the card or the camera. This type of card is extremely sensitive, so you should ask yourself if there is a possibility that it has been damaged. Usually there is no reason for the card to stop working after a year.

How do i get my Olympus D560 to use an xD M+ memory card? I keep getting card error message.


Hi,

The Olympus compatibility chart on their website says that your camera works with type M and M+ sizes 256MB - 512MB.
The chart also says 256MB - 512MB for type H and 16MB - 512MB for standard xD cards.
It looks like the largest size xD you can use of any type is 512MB.
The D560 is quite an early digital camera and it is not unusual to have card size limitations.

Memory error


Have you formatted the card in the camera before trying to use it? (download any pictures still on the card using a card reader if necessary).

Xd memory card


A card access error may indicate that an xD-Picture Card memory card is in a write-protected condition. xD-Picture Card memory cards have a special protection feature to ensure that your pictures are kept safe. NOTE: During this condition, you can still use the printer for printing and saving photos from the xD-Picture Card to a secure location, such as the computer hard drive. To resolve this error, try the following:
  • Reinsert the xD-Picture Card memory card into your camera and turn on the camera. In most cases, the camera automatically makes the necessary changes.
  • Reformat the xD-Picture Card memory card. See the documentation that came with your camera for instructions on reformatting the memory card. Note that this process erases the pictures currently saved to your memory card. To save these pictures, transfer them to the computer before reformatting the memory card. Once you reformat the memory card, transfer those photos back to the memory card using the computer.

Blue screen


You should check the settings to see which type of memory card you are using, xD versus Compact Flash. The default xD card that the camera comes with is very small and may not support saving the size of image you're trying to capture. If you are using a card with enough memory the card itself might be defective..

Has your camera always done this? Or is this a recent problem.
Also, have you changed your memory card, and that has caused your error?
Some times if you use a higher capacity memory card than the camera can use (especially with the xD card format) you will encounter very wierd errors, as the camera is trying to read or save to the card.

One thing to check is the memory card type. Olympus uses the xD card, BUT in the last couple years they have changed the format, from an xD card to an xD card type "M". The type M has a different file structure, and older cameras, and ones that can't support the "M" format might give odd errors.

I checked Olympus' website and I did NOT find any drivers for your camera, which is odd. Try uninstalling and reinstalling your software, and also check your memory card. If you have an extra around, try using it (I wouldn't recommend go buying a new one as many places do NOT let you return memory cards).
Let me know if this helps!

I get a blue screen and it says picture error


A camera that consistently causes errors on memory that worked before being installed is probably suffering from a board level issue. If the camera is under warranty I would definitely send it in to the manufacturer to be fixed. If it is out of warranty this is an extremely hard problem to track down, and probably would require a new circuit board which may very well cost as much as a new camera. It is possible that the problem lies with the connection between the camera's circuit board and the memory card slot. This is an option, but it is only one of many explanations all pertaining to the electronic components inside the camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
