Question about Olympus FE-220 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Memory card I have an Olympus FE 220. I took a heap of photo's and when i went to view the photos it gave me the option to turn power off or format memory card. So I put the card into my lap top and it only gave me the option to format card. This has happened before. Does it have something to do with the battery getting low on the camera cause that is when it seems to happen.

Hello Sir

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    I can view the pics i take clearly but when i switch modes to take a pic the screen is black and i hear a clicking sound.. olympusfe-220


    I beleive your Memory Card is the problem. Take it out and leave it out when turning it on and see what it does. Mine was doing the same thing untill I did the above and it took a picture with internal memory just fine. If it works, then you need to format the memory card using your camera setup menu. When you turn the camera on with memory card installed quickly push the green play button and it should stay on for you to see the menu.

    I normally use a small 32mb memory card in the olympus D-390 but used an olympus fe-130 over the holidays with a 256mb memory card. I do not have the usb cord for the fe-130 so I put the 256mb card in the...


    Many cameras will not read cards written on other, different cameras. There should be no problem taking the card to a store and having the pics printed or put on a disc. Or get a cord for the 390, or a card reader for your computer.

    How do I delete all the photos off of my olympus FE-310 (formating the card in set up didn't work)


    Formatting in the camera should have worked. Make sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position. With most cameras, when you bring up a picture and press the delete button, it gives you the option to delete that one picture or all of them. Have you tried that?

    Olympus FE 230 -Not able to retrieve pictures, only format option


    You may try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your Olympus camera, here are some for your options.

    Photo Recovery (for Windows)
    Photo Recovery for Mac

    Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

    When I open the shutter on my Olympus Camedia C-150 it says Card setup. Power Off or Format are the only options. Why can't I get my photos and can this be fixed???


    Hi there!

    First make sure the battery is fully charged, then

    try removing battery and memory card.

    Reinstall & turn on.

    If you ase still promped to format - select that and go from there.

    Hope this helps, if not, please contact us again for more assistance.

    Olympus camera fe 240


    You can transfer the photos directly from the camera to the PC using the USB cable that came with the camera. You don't need to transfer the pics to memory card first.

    Connect the cable to the camera and the PC. Turn on the camera and your PC will recognise it as an external storage device. Use the PC's software to transfer the photos from camera to PC.

    Once you have the pics on the PC you can use the Olympus Master software included with the camera to edit and archive the photos on the PC.

    Olympus FE-210 Camera Problem


    Well, I had same issue and call the crapus support and they told me to format it. That is solution they recommend. it happen to me three times already had a camera less than 2 month. Well time to sell crapus and get me a real camera, I had Nikon and Canon almost 8 years and never had issue with memory card. I was stupid to take chance on crapus, by the way if you are not using none olympus brand memory card you are out of luck, they do not support.

    Thanks

    Picture Error


    Hi, It is possible that the memory of your camera got corrupted. You can try and format the memory and see if it will clear any errors and make the memory (card) available for use of the camera. Should you want to try and recover any images stored in the memory card, it has to be a removable one that you can plug in to a card reader attached to a PC. Run data recovery software to hopefully recover whatever you can from the memory. You can also format the memory with your PC and use a disk checking utility to check for any other errors. Thereafter, if things are ok, it will be ready for use of the camera. Hope this be of some use to you. Post back how things went or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

    Olympus and card problem


    Hi. Thanks for your question, it helped me solve the same problem on my 720 SW. I don't know what initialised the problem but I had the same result - when I turned the power on I only had the option to format the memory card or turn the camera off. The solution was to take the memory card out and download the pictures using a card reader connected to my laptop. When I re-inserted the card and turned the camera on it worked normally. To make sure that everything was again OK I formatted the memory card to make sure it was properly re-set. Good luck and thanks. Rob
