I digicam that is Waterproof???? Don't believe that - unless it is in a housing. I suggest you dump this camera and get another and do not get it wet Wet and cameras don't mix This review does not mention a waterproof feature.

I have Microsoft Windows Xp Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 3. My USB port cannot read the card it is blank. The Camedia software cannot pull up anything, and Walgreens Kiosk cannot read the card...

I have good news and bad news. The good news is: I can solve your problem! The bad news is: those 17 different types of card do not include yours... almost certainly a SDHC. You need to get a card reader that specifically says that it does SDHC. I've seen USB stick adapter ones for $2.00 in the "dollar store".

My old memory card all of a sudden reads unusable, So i bought a new one...and it still says unusable... what do i do? I have only had the camera for 4 months

Try putting the new memory card into the camera and format the card. If the camera doesn't accept that it has a memory card turn the camera off remove the battery and then after about ten seconds put the battery back in and turn it on and see if you can format the new card again. You should always format the memory cards in the camera, even though there is a delete for single images leave them on the card and format the card. Always format the card in the camera not the computer.
By deleting single images in on the card while in the camera it sets up little partitions and pretty soon the memory card is rendered useless. Formatting in the computer writes a little program to the card which the camera can not read.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

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

Memory card cannot read by digital camera.

Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup - go to format option- You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.

It is possible that the memory card was damaged. This would be by coincidence. Just in case only the formatting is damaged you can try to format the memory card.

As far as reading the card is concerned, if the Mac has issues to read a PC format then it will not be able to read the card from your camera.
