I have just bought a 2gb card for mine and it is working, although the start up, formating and saving times are longer.  One trick I have found is that while a photo is saving, depress the shutter button halfway and it will show the view through the view finder again. I haven't tried it on panorama mode with the 2gb card yet tho.

Hi Bill...... It won't take a 2gb card. In fact I have a feeling that it may not even take a 1gb card. I have mine as a back-up camera these days. It will not support Panasonic either. Sorry..from experience.

Oh.... a quick tip... the Camedia software is not too hot, and you have to pay for the update to give you the email connection.

Regards

    Hi Bill..... refer to the above..... I have checked my manual and the 512 is the largest it will take. It will also not support Panarama (sorry, not panasonic - brain fade).

    The camera is good so it pays to have 3 or 4 512 cards in your bag. A tip I learned fron the Pro's is to have more smaller cards than a few big ones.... if a card fails on you, you have only lost 512 worth of photo's as opposed to 2gb of photo's.

    Enjoy the camera and spend the extra to get Photoshop Elements..... great software.

Fugi S5000 2gb xd M+ Computer says it's not formated


Yes, it would appear that you solved your own problem. The Fuji S5000 apparently only takes the max of 512 mb card. I own a newer Fuji S700 and it works fine with a 2 gb SD card, but I haven't tried anything bigger. Your best bet is to see if you can exchange those 2 gig cards for 512 mb cards at the store where you purchased them, and then try the 512's to see if your pc will read the pics. Explain to the store what the problem is and they should allow you to make the exchange.

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.

We have a new olympus camera 1010 and cannot get the camera to use the card to store photos it only wants t use the internal memery help!!


This camera takes 16MB -2GB cards. When you insert the card, make sure that it is formatted. Usually when you insert a new card or one that was formatted for a different camera (or a PC), the Olympus 1010 will ask you to either "Clean card" or "format".

Once you have it formatted, the camera automatically defaults to storing pictures on the card. When the card is removed it will start storing back to the internal memory.

You should see an small icon on the bottom right of the camera windows display when you are taking pictures as shown on page 63 of the manual. When the xD card is installed, you should not see this icon.

If you have a faulty xD card or one that is unrecognizable, you should see error messages like those on page 57 of the same manual.

You can always go to the MENU button and click the RESET button to restore the factory default setting. Make sure you remove the xD memory card before resetting your camera. Take one or two pictures without the card and then insert the card and see if the pictures are stored in the xD card now.

Hi,

Yes and in several methods as below listed. Since your posting refers to a generic problem for all digital cameras and not only an Olympus FE-230, some of the settings may have a different nomenclature or button name.
1. When you download pictures to you PC, rather than copy, select move; or
2. If you want to erase one picture at a time from the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow down/up, you will be asked to erase the picture displayed, select yes/no by up/down, then press OK (menu button); or
3. If you want to erase all contents of the memory card of the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow right, down to select card, right to select card setup, right to enter card setup, arrow down to select format or erase all, OK. Erase all just erases the files, format erases all and re-initialize the memory card; or
4. Remove memory card from camera and insert into a memory card reader attached to USB of your PC. The memory from the camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.
5. Connect the camera via the supplied cable to any USB port of your PC. The camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.

Specifically for an Olympus FE-230:
1. Press the < or > buttons to display the picture you want to erase;
2. Press the trash can button (bottom right);
3. Press the UP button to select [YES], press OK;

or

To erase all:
1. Press the MENU button to display the top menu in playback mode;
2. Select [ERASE], [ALL ERASE], and press OK;
3. Select [YES], and press OK

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Xd picture card


Hi, You have to go to the menu/setup function. Check the different settings. One of them would lead you to the memory card settings, from there you should be able to format the new card. Good luck and kind regards.
