XD memory card confusion

I have an Olympus Camedia D540 Zoom digital camera that uses an XD memory card. The one I have is only 16MB and I'd like to get a larger one. The cards I see say ''Type M'' or ''M+'' or ''Type H''. My 16MB card isn't labeled as any certain ''type''. What is the difference and what type will work for my camera?

The xD-Picture Card (xD stands for "extreme digital.") is a flash memory card format developed and introduced to the market in July 2002 by Olympus and Fujifilm, and manufactured by the Toshiba Corporation. xD cards are in Olympus and Fujifilm digital cameras, and are available in a range of sizes, from 16 MB to 2 GB currently. A higher-performance xD card known as Type M came out in 2005, and uses Multi Level Cell (MLC) architecture.
An xD card is 20mm x 25mm x 1.78mm and weighs about 2.8 g, making it significantly smaller than the nearly matchbook-sized CF card and about half the size of the SD/MMC card. As far as size goes, it is much closer to miniSD or RS-MMC. The manufacturer listed write speeds for xD-Picture Cards are: for the 16 MB and 32 MB card, 1.3 MB/s and for the 64MB and higher cards, 3 MB/s. Both offer a minimum read speed of 5 MB/s. The xD Type M cards have a faster standard rate of 4.0MB/s for reading and 2.5MB/s for writing.
Anything up to 2gb will work with your camera, either the type M or the type M+ will be fine.

How do i get my Olympus D560 to use an xD M+ memory card? I keep getting card error message.


Hi,

The Olympus compatibility chart on their website says that your camera works with type M and M+ sizes 256MB - 512MB.
The chart also says 256MB - 512MB for type H and 16MB - 512MB for standard xD cards.
It looks like the largest size xD you can use of any type is 512MB.
The D560 is quite an early digital camera and it is not unusual to have card size limitations.

Cant get anything when i installed the memory card for my olympus


If this is a C-700 camera the only memory card that can be used in that camera is a Smartmedia card from 16mb to 128mb. An xD card is not even supported by that camera at all.

Picture card 16MB


Your Oly uses xD memory which is made by Fuji and others but apparently your camera is limited to 512MB cards so check with any supplier to ensure you are not buying something you cannot use.

Olympus xd picture card


Hi,

I've found a 2Gb card that is accepted by Olympus.

Details Here

It's only £17, so seems a worthwhile investment. However, it may not be compatible with panorama shots. If you intend to use these, I'd stick with a 64Mb version. - Or carry two, as they don't exactly take up room.

Do you mean you want to use a 1 gig xD card in your C-750? You can't do that. The C-750 has a memory card size limit of 512 mb.
