Olympus xd card formatting problems.


If you like the camera and XD cards then I would use the USB cable to download the photos from the camera. When you plug the USB cale into the camera and then into the computer, the computer should recognize the camera and set it up as another disk drive. Copy or move the pictures from the card to your Photo location. Use the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the system tray to disconnect the camera and your done. The camera can format the XD card and the computer can read it through the camera.

XD Card format


Have you sent the camera to olympus for the free upgrade to enable the xd 512gb and 1gb card? go to the olympic site and then to their support page for c-50zoom and look for instructions for the upgrade,you must have the product ID from the package and the sales receipt and make sure you have purchased the olympus sponsored card mfg.This is listed in the instructions. They get the job done pretty quick and pay for the return shipping.
