Xd clean card

My olympus cann't read my xd card; it only displays "clean card" or "format" on it. notes on screen:
clean the terminal of the xD card with the dry cloth.
Options are:
xD Card Clean
Format

MESSAGE TO CLEAN TERMINAL OF XD CARD WITH DRY CLOTH. DO THAT MESSAGE COMES BACK I have and Olympus Stylus 820 and it's doing the same thing. I've tried two different cards and it does it with both. I've tried cleaning the card to no avail. I've tried the card in a card reader and it won't read it now. I even tried formatting the disk and I get a "card error" message.

    Yeah, I have the exact same problem. I don't know if I have lost everything or not. On the computer it looks as if there is nothing on the card.

    Help! Of course I have probably lost a few hundred irreplaceable pictures.

    I have the same issue and have tried cleaning the card with no luck. I can't get out of the "clean card" screen on my Olympus 310 FE camera and have no idea if I've lost all the pix on the card. Have tried all kinds of things to try to transfer from the camera to my PC, but if I can't navigate away from the "clean card" camera screen, nothing else will work...

Get an inexpensive card reader and use it to download your pics to your computer. Then, format the card in the camera to erase and initialize it. It should work properly then and your pics will be safely stored on your computer. typrice_129.jpg

OLYMPUS XD Card - CLEAN or FORMAT - and not reading in computer


Your 2gb xd card would be of the "M" or "H" designation, which is a new type of card which is not always compatible with many cameras and card readers. If the other cards that work are not H or M cards, that is most likely the problem

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.
