The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb or 2gb card is not compatible. The camera came out long before these cards were in existence and therefore the firmware in the camera cannot support storage that large.

this is an old camera which uses xd picture card format. latest format in use is sd. hence, production of chips and cameras with xd stopped years ago, and a new xd may be avaialble online, but at a very stee price. Approx $25 per peice (similar sd costs $4 per piece)

Olympus xD-Picture Card "Card Error"


First things first - need to make sure that the card is making proper electrical contact with the camera. Have a look at the contacts at the edge of the card and make sure they are spotlessly clean - even a fingerprint may cause problems.

Also, make sure the contacts in the camera have nothing causing a contact problem, and see if this resolves the issue.

XD Card format


Have you sent the camera to olympus for the free upgrade to enable the xd 512gb and 1gb card? go to the olympic site and then to their support page for c-50zoom and look for instructions for the upgrade,you must have the product ID from the package and the sales receipt and make sure you have purchased the olympus sponsored card mfg.This is listed in the instructions. They get the job done pretty quick and pay for the return shipping.

C-450Z - can't take panoramas


Hi,

Olympus has a special format for his own card so when you buy a original panorama XD card it will works properly. When you format a normal unknown brand card in the Olympus it will not change to a panarama type
