Either the card is bad or corrupted... try cleaning the contacts on the card, then try to format thru the camera menu

I do, it works fine but if you want to use the panorama function you have to have the olympus brand card.

Got new olympus memory card, keeps saying card error


Is the memory card the correct capacity? Is it too "big"? ie is it say a 8 gig and maybe your camera only supports 4 gig? I had that problem with my camera-I had bought a memory card which was too high in capacity for it. Check your user manual for the cards and capacity you can use.

My new memory card will not work for the Olympus Camedia D-560


The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb card is not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage with that capacity. 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.

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.
