Xd picture card will not click into place on Olympus e-420. Results in prompt "card reader error."


Are you sure it is a xD card and not an SDXC?

Then there should be a little arrow, pointing in the direction it should be going while inserting.
Try to eject the card and reinsert the card.
If you never used a xD card, and nobody else ever tried to put something in the slot, the card should go in smooth.
After placing the card, don't forget to format the card in the camera.

Windows 7 for downloading


Do you mean the Windows 95 OS or Windows 7? If you have Windows 95B (with USB support), get a USB card reader. You may need to add a USB card to your computer. (Look carefully at the manufacturer's site for the drivers, fewer companies are providing drivers for the older OS versions (before XP).) Windows 95a doesn't support USB at all. You would need a new OS. This is not guaranteed to work. If you upgrade Win95a to Win98, issues may still exist with the USB card reader. Remove the card from the camera and plug into the xD slot on the card reader. If the card reader works, you can use a version of Photoshop or any image viewer since your photos are JPEGs.

If you mean Windows 7, your computer might have an memory card reader. Check for an xD card slot. Otherwise, get a card reader (USB or internal that uses a 3.5" drive bay and connects to an available USB motherboard connector if you have one). Here is a source for several USB card readers: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?MfrId=0&CatId=2833 . Remove the card from the camera and insert it into the computer's xD slot. Then use the Windows Photo Viewer or any other image viewing or editing program to look at the pictures.

Open the card as you would any flash drive or optical disc. Go to Computer (My Computer) and access the card reader "drive", open folders to find the Olympus one. Drag and drop pictures to your hard drive or double-click to launch in the program linked to the JPEG file type.

Windows 8 will behave like Windows 7 with the card reader (for most readers).

I hope this helps.

I put the xd picture card in my laptop and unable


Try to use the usb cord that came with the camera to transfer photos over. Don't forget to install the driver for your camera.

The 2nd link is the manual in .pdf form, and there should be a usb cable that came with your camera and if you lost the cd-rom then you can download drivers for free from the olympus support site (1st link).

Good luck on retrieving your pictures.

When i try to put the pictures from my computer on to the camera i get (xD) no pictures


If you try to put pictures on a card using a computer and then try to view them on your camera, they don't work because the computer uses a different system than the camera does.

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.

Olympus 770 not able to move photos from xd card to laptop error message every time


A couple of questions :

What happens when you use "Windows Explorer" to view the contents of the card .
It should appear as just another disk drive in the list .

Are you able to view the contents of the card when you plug the camera into the usb port ?
