Question about Cameras
Press "Menu" Press button to the right (towards a little flower on my camera) which takes you to the "setting" menu. scroll down to "format" right click again and it reads "All data deleted" and then gives you the option to "Format" or "Cancel". Select "Format" and then "ok" and pronto....your memory card is ready to go.

After trying to format the SD card as advised above and talking to customer service but not fixing the same problem on a Vivitar X029, my husband worked with the camera for a few minutes and here is how he fixed it. He removed the battery, this gave him more finger space to push the memory card into a deeper position until it clicked. (Maybe using a popsicle stick to push the card down further would allow you to do this without taking out the battery???)Then he reinstalled the battery and he moved the lever over the battery. Originally, the SD card was "floating" (battery door pushed the SD card down further when I closed the door) in the slot but he got the SD card to "seat" properly. We could take pictures after that with no problem and no annoying "memory card full" message with a brand new camera and SD card. Hope it works for you.

Take out memory card.
Touch all metal pins with metal or sweaty finger.
Put back in and go to menu.

Memory cards can have many folders. Camera can only look inside one folder. Format your memory card.

There should be a "format card" option in the camera's system menu. do this and it may help the unfortunate equipment realize the situation:) (be sure there are no pics you want to keep as they will be permenantly removed)

Olympus cameras are a bit picky! If you have not already tried then format the card on the camera. This is more reliable than formatting the card on a PC.
Downloading the pictures from your camera does not erase them from the card. It only copies them to your PC
Hope this helps

You may need to go into the Menu Selection of the camera & locate the "Format" option. Choose Format & see if it will then read the card.

Same problem with a VIvitar X029. Try taking out the battery, then "seating" the memory card further into its slot. Replace the battery and close the door. The card should not be able to move when closing the door. If it does, it is not puhed in far enough.
