Sounds like the card or possibly the flash ram (built in software) has become corrupted, so that neither the camera or computer can read it. If the card can't be read, you're most likely out of luck getting your photos off the card.

Mju 400 slow down with 2GB xD-PicCard?!?!


It's possible that your camera, being 7 years old, was never designed for a 2gb card. You can find cards of all sizes at amazon.com

After taking about 15-20 pictures our camera shows card error message. We download the pics onto our computer and reformat as the camera says to do...but should the camera hold more pictures than that?


Hello,

It sounds like the card is damaged, it should take a lot more photos than that.

The C-50 takes an XD memory card. These are different sizes. For example a 256mb size will take hundreds of photographs.

The C-50 is quite old and there are now different types of XD cards. It might be best to get a 128mb XD card.

The Olympus website says:
---
Please contact Olympus authorized distributor or service center in your region for the information about
using xD-Picture Card 512MB, 1GB or 2GB
---
I hope this helps.

DEAR SIR, I HAVE C-150 WITH 16MB CARD. I WOULD LIKE TO UPGRADE THE MEMORY CARD. WHAT IS THE LIMIT AND WHICH CARD SHULD I PURCHASE IF SO.


The manual recommends "no more than 256mb"

>> Memory : xD-Picture Card (16 – 256MB)

Here's the manual (free download)
http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/OLYMPUS/C-150-_E

Whilst Olympus made the xD card in sizes up to 2GB, the very large cards are not worth risking on three counts:
(1) Manual recommends max of 256MB (Although that might just have been the limit of production, when this camera was issued).
(2) Generally, multiple smaller cards give you more flexibility than one bit card (and they attract less of a premium).
(3) A 2GB card, if it worked, would store an infeasibly large amount of pictures on one card - it would be very hard to sort them, and you really would have "all your eggs in one basket" - remember that card, like any other magnetic media, can fail, especially over time.

So 256MB is plenty, and its an xD card (Distinguishable by its curved profile along one on the long sides).

Hope this helps.

The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is a 256mb card without the letters M or H on it. The 1gb and 2gb cards are not compatible.

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.
