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 Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect image and the card can be used again.

Olympus FE-370 I have 10 pictures on the camera (tok pics without realising there was no card inside!), but I cant seem to save them to the memory card - I have lost the lead for the camera. Is there...


See page 34 of the manual (available for free download from Olympus below).

Or in short, select the "Setup" (tools) menu, and then select "Backup". You'll need to have the memory card installed for the transfer.

Olympus FE 230 -Not able to retrieve pictures, only format option


You may try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your Olympus camera, here are some for your options.

Photo Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Recovery for Mac

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.
