    hi johngotts,



    this is to clarify my problem:



    i have an olympus C-170 camera, when I turn it on, 2 options are given power off and format... when i choose format, it will erase all the pictures. I have not formatted it because I dont want to erase the pictures. I used a card reader in my laptop, and it yields an error message that the card needs to be formatted. I cant retrieve the pictures in my card.



    I have stored pictures that are very important to me. Please help.

    If you put a new memory card in, how is it that there are pictures on it already?

The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is a 256mb card. The M or H 256mb cards are not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage of that type. The camera came out before those cards did and there no plans to upgrade the camera to allow those types of cards to be supported.

I bought my friend a c150 kodak camera for christmas and she only took maybe 5-7 pictures and now there is a message on the screen that says internal memory full, I have taken out the memory card out and...


To get the card to work, you must erase the internal memory. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. After that, the card should work properly.

CARD FULL with 3 pictures


Have you tryed eraseing / formating it in the 740?

Make sure the camara uses the card instead of internal memory
it might be that its saveing the images into the cameras internal memory witch is probably just about 3-4 shots.

Can't make any photo or preview


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 message and the card can be used again.

Camera says Memory CARD FULL--but it's empty


Olympus cameras are a bit picky! If you have not already tried then format the card on the camera. This is more reliable than formatting the card on a PC.

Downloading the pictures from your camera does not erase them from the card. It only copies them to your PC

Hope this helps
