I have an hp photosmart M525v and ironically i have a similar problem. i decided to take the casing off my camera because the warranty was over and descovered that one of the pins in the sd card slot was actually bent and wasnt making contact with the card ! ! the only fix is to take it in and get it repaired unforntunately. i hope this helps you.

I have a fe-200 olympus camera, after i transferred the images, the memory card say write protect, the memory card has no switch on the side, and now i cant take any pictures happened to both of my memory...


Your camera uses xD memory cards, and they never have a physical locking switch.

Your problem is most likely due to having used the xD card in an external card reader. The host pc sometimes sets the xD card as a "read only" drive. If so you must go back to the host pc and connect the xD card again. If using Windows then click on My Computer and highlight the xD card. Right click and select Properties from the device menu. Uncheck the box marked Read Only.

If that's not the cause of your problem then try re-formatting the card in your camera. NEVER re-format it using a computer.

If those options both fail, try another xD card which is known to be fully functional in your camera. This will determine whether the camera or the card is at fault. The camera is too old to merit the cost of a professional repair, and there's nothing more to be done with a faulty xD card, so replace whichever item is faulty.

You may also wish to consult the user manual for your model which you can download for free from Olympus in .pdf format.

I hope that I've been of assistance, please take a moment to rate my speedy and free answer.

Windows 7 driver for an olympus FE-210


Currently, you can't.

Olympus have not yet released a Windows 7 driver and given that it is an ultra low cost model I doubt that they'll be in any rush to do so.

All you can do is to try and find a Windows 7 compatible xD card reader, but given that xD is now an obsolete format that might also prove to be difficult.

The only remaining option will be to install your current driver onto Win7 and try to run it in compatibility mode.

Sorry there's no straightforward/guaranteed fix here, but these issues always arise with an upgrade to a brand new O.S. version and it often takes up to a year to find out which products will be supported on the new O.S. and which ones will be consigned to obselescence.

Olympus c150 camera put new memory card in getting message card set up format power off then mesage erasing all help please i have a C-170 camera, when I turn it on, 2 options are given power off and...


The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is a 256mb card. The M or H 256mb cards are not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage of that type. The camera came out before those cards did and there no plans to upgrade the camera to allow those types of cards to be supported.

XD CARD


You can purchase any xD card for the camera. The camera will support xD cards from 16mb to 2gb. Either the M or the M+ types are compatible.

Memory card


The Olympus FE-120 uses an xD-Picture card.   Here is a linkyou can use to shop for the cards. Looks like the cheapest card is about $7.00 and has a 64mb capacity. The prices go on up to about $30.00 for a 1gig capacity.

These cards are all OLYMPUS brand cards and they are all supported by your camera, up to 2gig.

Hi,

Yes and in several methods as below listed. Since your posting refers to a generic problem for all digital cameras and not only an Olympus FE-230, some of the settings may have a different nomenclature or button name.
1. When you download pictures to you PC, rather than copy, select move; or
2. If you want to erase one picture at a time from the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow down/up, you will be asked to erase the picture displayed, select yes/no by up/down, then press OK (menu button); or
3. If you want to erase all contents of the memory card of the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow right, down to select card, right to select card setup, right to enter card setup, arrow down to select format or erase all, OK. Erase all just erases the files, format erases all and re-initialize the memory card; or
4. Remove memory card from camera and insert into a memory card reader attached to USB of your PC. The memory from the camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.
5. Connect the camera via the supplied cable to any USB port of your PC. The camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.

Specifically for an Olympus FE-230:
1. Press the < or > buttons to display the picture you want to erase;
2. Press the trash can button (bottom right);
3. Press the UP button to select [YES], press OK;

or

To erase all:
1. Press the MENU button to display the top menu in playback mode;
2. Select [ERASE], [ALL ERASE], and press OK;
3. Select [YES], and press OK

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
