Sandisk ext'me IV 8GB cf card states 'card error' in olympus e410

I have recently purchased a Sandisk extreme IV 8GB CF card on two seperate occasions for my Olympus E-410 DSLR. On inserting card into camera it states 'card full' but no pictures on card, i then tried the format menu and attempted to format card, it then stated message ' card error'. I have challenged both sellers who firmly state that the cards are genuine and not fakes. I have also checked compatibility of card to camera on olympus websites but am confused as one states that the camera can support up to 32GB yet others state upto 8GB, my current card is the sandisk III 4GB CF card and works perfect so would like to know firstly if i can get around this error or is 8GB to much for the camera???

Can this Olympus C5050Z works with Sandisk CF Ultra 4GB 30MB/s? I tried to insert it, and always gets card error message, although I can use the card in my notebook.


Your camera was designed to be fully CF compliant, but it was designed long before 4GB cards were available so your problem is likely to be that the camera cannot handle a card of that large a capacity.

I've checked the Olympus servicing manual but unfortunately it doesn't state a maximum CF capacity and there have been no relevant firmware updates to extend CF compatibility.

When your camera was released back in 2003 the largest capacity CF card was 1GB so I suggest that you don't go above that size. You'll also be wasting your money on any more than a regular Sandisk Ultra as the camera cannot take advantage of the faster data transfer rates of later cards, I'm not even certain that it can utilise the speed advantage of an Ultra over a really basic model, but it won't cause the camera to throw it's toys out of the pram either.

I hope that you've found my reply to be of use and ask in return only that you return the goodwill and rate my answer.

I have an E410 DSLR and am trying to use a Sandisk Extreme IV CF card of 4GB. I get message stating card full until I try to format it and then get a card error. Can you help ?


Currently Olympus has successfully tested Sandisk Extreme 3 up to 8gb without any card error messages. It sounds as if it is a card compatibility issue. Try to exchange to an Extreme 3 and you should be able to use that without any issues.

My Nikon Coolpix 2100 Lexar starter memory card has become unreadable


It sounds like your Dazzle is not compatible with the sandisk. Maybe the Sandisk CF UltraII card have a new update software in it.

Err CF


Observe the connector inside camera, using a flashlight. If there is a bent pin take the camera to service immediately. Don't turn it on any more as we did in one similar case - creating a short circuit that damaged the camera electronics and voided the warranty.

If no visible problems, remove battery and leave it out overnight.

Internal Memory??


The E-500 has no internal storage. As per dpreview it will accept CF and xD-Picture cards. xD-Picture is slower, more expensive, less compatible, and all around less useful. As far as CF goes, the Sandisk Ultra-II is a good reliable card for a reasonable price. I wouldn't bother with a faster card like Sandisk's Extreme-III or Extreme-IV; they might speed up copying to your PC somewhat, but the camera itself won't write out files any faster.

Have you tried formatting these cards in your camera? You will find the setting in the menu as per page 26 of the manual. Also check that the correct card type is set for xD or CF as appropriate.

CF card problem


A slightly similar experience in that a Memory Stick Duo inexplicably set itself to write protect. No matter what I did, I couldn't format it. I was forced to buy another card. If possible, test it with another card or two. If it happens with more than two or three cards, then I would suspect the camera.
