Question about Olympus Camedia C-350 Digital Camera

CARD SET-UP When I open the camera to take photos it gives me a beeping sound and then a screen with two options:POWER OFF or FORMAT. If I choose the latter one the card warns me that it is deleting all. I'm afraid to do that because I have photos saved that I don't want deleted!!! Please help me!

I need to set up the card on my Olympus C-5060 camera. When I choose the format button, it just beeps forever.


1. Power the camera off and remove and replace the card several times.
2. Recheck.
3. Put in another memory card and check.

If the recheck (2) does help, it may be dirty contacts.
If another memory card has the same issue, the camera needs repair.

I have a Polaroid a330 and just bought a 2GB sd card. The manual says to format a card before using and gives instructions. However, when I insert the card and turn on the camera, the screen shows "card...


first try to see if the card is not locked from the side ..It has a little button that locks it ...after that insert the card into a computer with a card reader ..and format it in Fat mode...by opening my computer folder...right click on the removable storage device ...and choose format ...when it opens choose Fat ..and quick format ..than OK ..this will format it for the first time ..and after that isert it in the camera and see if it is seen ..

if the format card is not available now..(to format it in the camera again and be sure it is the right way and make the folders fro storage ) ..
goto storage feature in the main menu ..and choose to store in teh card ..in tis moment will prompt you to format ...or ..just choose a picture from the camera memory in the view mode..and options ..and try to move it in the card ..if it is not proper formatted will ask you to format it ..and give you the possibility to make it right the way by asking you if you want to format it now...choose ok..and that's all..But I suspect that if you unlock it ..and format it in a computer will work like a charm ...

Cannot find instructions in manual for Nikon Coolpix S210 on how to delete ALL photos from memory disk. It will let me delete one at a time but I want to wipe the memory card clean. Thanks for any and all...


These instructions are from the Instruction Manual of the Coolpix S 210 and need to be carried out within the Set-Up Menu.

Refer Page 19:

Removing Memory Cards
Before removing memory cards, turn the camera off
and confirm that the power-on lamp is off. Open the
battery-chamber/memory card slot cover and press the
card in 1 to partially eject the card 2. The card can
then be removed by hand.
B Formatting Memory Cards
If the message at right is displayed, the memory card must be
formatted before use (A110). Note that formatting permanently
deletes all pictures and other data on the memory card. Be sure
to make copies of any pictures you wish to keep before formatting
the memory card.
Use the multi selector to choose Yes and press k. The
confirmation dialog will be displayed. To start formatting, choose
Format and press k.
Do not turn the camera off or open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover until
formatting is complete.
• The first time you insert the memory cards used in other devices into the COOLPIX S210, be sure to
format them using this camera (A110).


Refer Pg 110:

 Format Memory/m Format Card
Use this option to format the internal memory or a memory card.
Formatting the Internal Memory
To format the internal memory, remove the memory
card from the camera.
The Format memory option appears in the setup
menu.
Formatting a Memory Card
When the memory card is inserted in the camera, the
Format card option appears in the setup menu.

Hope this helps

Write protect


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 - Press Ok- right arrow 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.

insert a new/empty SD card into your camera. Use the format option and start clicking photos.
