Card error message during formatting XD picture card

I am attempting to format the XD picture card 1 GB for my parents D-560 Olympus camera. I insert the card in camera, answer yes to formatting, it warns me it will delete all memory (which is fine bc nothing has been saved to the card). Then it gives me a card error message. Help, what do I need to do to get the card to work?

    I also own an Olympus camera C350 zoom that I want to get another picture card for. I also purchased a 1 GB card and have found the same problem. I have been informed 1 GB cards are not compatible with either c350 or d560 cameras. The hand book says the camera will accept up to 256MB cards but I cant find where to get one now. has anyone got an ideas ???

Clean or format card error on Olympus XD card


There are most likely some "corrupted" images on your xD card. Very often a card reader "writes" data to the card while transferring or copying images into the computer. When you re-insert the card back into the camera, it doesn't recognize the new data (because it didn't create it), and gives the error, usually requiring a complete formatting be performed. There are also problems if you use a reader to rotate images, then re-install the card in the camera. The best way to accomplish what you were doing is to transfer the images into a folder on your computer, as the camera shot them (don't rotate them first). That way, you haven't altered any data on the card. For now, however, I suggest you format the card in the camera, so you can start with a "clean slate". Good luck.

We have a new olympus camera 1010 and cannot get the camera to use the card to store photos it only wants t use the internal memery help!!


This camera takes 16MB -2GB cards. When you insert the card, make sure that it is formatted. Usually when you insert a new card or one that was formatted for a different camera (or a PC), the Olympus 1010 will ask you to either "Clean card" or "format".

Once you have it formatted, the camera automatically defaults to storing pictures on the card. When the card is removed it will start storing back to the internal memory.

You should see an small icon on the bottom right of the camera windows display when you are taking pictures as shown on page 63 of the manual. When the xD card is installed, you should not see this icon.

If you have a faulty xD card or one that is unrecognizable, you should see error messages like those on page 57 of the same manual.

You can always go to the MENU button and click the RESET button to restore the factory default setting. Make sure you remove the xD memory card before resetting your camera. Take one or two pictures without the card and then insert the card and see if the pictures are stored in the xD card now.

I'm needing a driver for my FE-280


I went to Olymbus website to find the driver for the FE-280 Digital camera and it states, no software availble at this time.

They show the camera on the website and I know there is a driver for it, but they are not supplying the consumer with it. Bad choice for Olympus.

I have given you some information and links below:

http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/FE-280%20Instruction%20Manual.pdf

This is the manual for your camera.
Go page 45 at the very bottom. Using a New Card


The FE-280 does not recognize my memory card. What can I do?
First, refer to the xD-Picture Card™ Compatibility Chart to verify that the card is supported in your model. If the card is not supported, return it to the store where you purchased it.
The FE-280 may not recognize non-Olympus brand media or a card that has been formatted on another device, such as a card reader or personal computer. As a general rule, xD-Picture Card media should only be formatted in the camera. Card readers should only be used to copy files from the memory card to an external device.
You may be able to use the card if you format it in the camera.
Warning: Formatting a media card will delete all content on the card.


When I put an xD-Picture Card™ flash memory card into my camera and turn it on, I get a “Card Error” message. What can I do?
This message occurs when the camera is unable to recognize the memory card or when an attempt to format a card fails.
If you see this message after inserting a brand new card, refer to the xD-Picture Card Compatibility Chart to verify that the card is supported in your model. If the card is not supported, return it to the store where you purchased it.
If the card is supported, it may need to be cleaned. Wipe the gold contacts of the card with alcohol using a soft cloth or tissue. When the contacts are dry, insert the card and turn the camera on.
If the Card Error message still appears, remove the card and insert a different supported card into the camera. If the camera reads the second card, then the camera is working properly and the problem lies with the original card.
You may be able to use the card if you format it in the camera.
Warning: Formatting a media card will delete all content on the card.
If you receive this error message after a failed attempt to format the memory card, the card may be defective. For assistance, contact Olympus’ Customer Service and Repair Center using any of the following methods:
Phone: 800-622-6372

This is about updating the olympus Master Software.

If I can do anything else for you let me know
