Question about Olympus Cameras

Open Question

Hi, I just got back from vacation and pulled my Fuji 128mb memory card out of my Olympus Stylus digital 300 camera and put it in my laptop (as I normally would)and the computer is showing that the folders are empty. I pulled the card back out and put it back in the camera and now the camera asks me if I want to power off or format the card. Help! I don't want to format the card because I know that will erase it. I don't know why this happened. Can you help me recover my pictures? Thank you for all your help in advance. Jim shoedoctor@comcast.net

SOURCE: Memory card formatted in error

when you have formatted a memory card in error the pictures can be retrieved again. using and your pc. You can download and application online to do this. Just do not take any pictures with the memory stick as you will over write the lost pictures. I am using card recovery to find my lost pictures.

SOURCE: i have this model olympus

By default Olympus cameras do not print the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order or print reservation that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.

Hi! I have an older Olympus C-4000 Camedia Camera and am wondering if it's compatible with a 4 GB SanDisk SDHC memory card.


Unfortunately the only memory card that can be used in this camera is a smartmedia card. The largest smartmedia card available is a 128mb card.

Hi Bonnie, don't know what problems you are having as you havent specified, but i do know that if you use a memory card higher than 512mb, it will appear as though it is not working! 512mb xd card is the highest you can use for this camera, you can also use a fuji memory card, hope this helps! Check the memory card! :)

Ruined Memory Card??


No one can expend efforts to diagnose, repair or let alone talk to you about what may be a 25 to 30 dollar memory card. I've had dozens of such failures but I deal with a fleet of devices and these are spread over the world now. The card, if the camera will not format it is tossed and you get a new one. Whatever you plugged it into is marked as suspect and I'd not do that again.
