Re: I can not switch on mu camera,

If the camera is under warranty it´s free....if not it could be expensive, depending where u are they will send it to portugal or to czech republic, that´s where in europe all the olympus cameras are repaired, and they don´t have such software, i know i worked there, probably tis the card slot damaged, and they will replace it.

Took about 50 pics and tried to see them on computer. Got the message "card locked." Now what?

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

I took pics with no memory card can i retrieve the pics on card ?


Please follow these steps:

insert card> turn on cam to auto> press review> "reading memory card" > press menu> scroll down to image storage> press ok to select> select INTERNAL MEMORY> press ok

scroll down to COPY> Copy pictures to memory card> scroll down to all> press ok
message to expect: "copying"

when it goes to back the menu screen
scroll to IMAGE STORAGE again and select AUTO> ok> "reading memory card"

This should do the trick.

Kind regards

How do i get pictures off internal memory onto a computer or sd card

Hi, I have the similar s8000fd and I transfer pics from internal memory by taking out the sd card then connect to a spare usb socket on computer, then switch camera on. To transfer pics from internal memory to sd card - leave sd card in, switch on camera (playback mode), press menu, select copy, select 'internal memory to sd card', 'select frame' or 'all frames'. It should say 'copy ok?' Press OK.

I put a new card in my camera because my last one was full. Then I took several pictures. All of the sudden i get a message saying "memory card needs formatting." I pressed "ok" format. It deleted all of...

First of all, do you know you're supposed to download the pics from your full card to your computer and then format the card in the camera? Keeping them on the card is risky since the cards are not made for long term storage. The pics can degrade over time. Formatting completely erases a card and that's what happened with your new card. All new cards should be formatted in the camera before using....that's what your camera was trying to tell you.

Card Reader Error

There's a slide switch on one edge of the SD card. Slide it away from the contacts. If that doesn't work, there's a problem with the mechanism inside the camera that detects the switch position.

Just got new easyshare, cannot review pics and pics will not copy

All cameras need a memory card of some description. A 1GB SD card would be more than big enough from any photographic shop. Make sure that the lock switch on the side of the SD card is not set.

Photos on camera review but not memory card

before unplugging any usb device from the computer... it is best to safely remove before unplugging the device...

i used to just unplug before i lost over 200 pics. was able to recover using recovery software but the whole process took about 3 hours to do. since using safe remove.. not a single loss

some pros suggest formatting the card on regular basis to also clean the card of file fragments... but once card is formatted, the pics are not recoverable... be careful

X-D picture error message.

Well, you can try to recover it using recovery software, but you are out of luck, it seems Olympus have some issue with memory card slot in FE model, I have FE280 and it happened to me three times already and I call the support they are no help what so ever. Answer they provide is format the card.

you can try to recover it using memory card reader, but you have to find one that support Xd slot.

Sorry to hear that you have that problem, take as lesson learn and don't buy Olympus.
