Hi,

I have got an OLYMPUS FE-100 camera, I downloaded the photos in to the computer thereafter the camera has been displaying the “WRITE PROTECTED”message on screen, not allowing me to take new photos and edit the existing ones. It does not have any memory card. I haven’t inserted any memory card yet, it has only internal memory of camera. Could you suggest me the solution

Thanks

Check the manual to discover how write protect is achieved with your particular camera/card Some card rely on a silver foil stick[Smart Media] other have a switch. Compact flash rely on a control on the camera. So you will have to have a good browse through the manual - do not forget that there is a Full manual in PDF on the software disk.

I too was having a problem with an olympus e-410. On the screen it had [CF] write protect. In the manual it says something about "card is set to read-only ......"
Long story short what I discovered was that the the file system on the Compact flash was "hidden and read only"

To fix:
show hidden folders: http://www.york.ac.uk/services/cserv/help/compyrk/hidden.htm
Then:
1. double click my computer
2. find drive letter that camera is mounted on and give it a good old double click
3. folder should now be displayed
4. left and right click on it
5. select properties
6. Take out the ticks for the attributes of read-only and hidden
7. click on OK
8. do what needs to be done
9. Reverse the "show hidden folders" document

I BOUGHT A USED OLYMPUS D-395 CAMERA, WITH NO CARD . WHAT CARD DO I NEED


The camera takes a 3V xD Picture Card (3.3 V). The original one was 16 MB; the camera will support an xD card between 16 and 512 MB. Olympus will sell you a 256 MB card for $10 here: https://us.buyolympus.com/xd-picture-card-h256mb.html . Another site with the correct size xD Picture cards is http://www.memorysuppliers.com/olxdpiccar.html .

Details for the Olympus D-395 camera are available from Olympus under Archived Products. See http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_archived_product_details.asp?id=953 . Links to the manual and specs are on the site.

I hope this helps.

Try to use the usb cord that came with the camera to transfer photos over. Don't forget to install the driver for your camera.

http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/oima_cckb/FE-310_X-840_C-530_Instruction_Manual_EN.pdf

The 2nd link is the manual in .pdf form, and there should be a usb cable that came with your camera and if you lost the cd-rom then you can download drivers for free from the olympus support site (1st link).

Good luck on retrieving your pictures.

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

Can i use a sd memory card with my olympus fe 330


No this is not possible. Olympus is using the xD-Picture Card.
If you get an microSD to xD adapter (Olympus MASD-1 adapter) it is possible to use Micro SD Cards.

Olympus c-730, does it support xD-Picture cards greater than 128M


The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb or 2gb cards are not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage with that capacity. 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.

You can add memory to your camera by purchasing an xd memory card.
Compatible cards
xD-Picture Card (16MB – 1GB)
There are two ways to record the pictures you take with this camera.
Recording pictures to the internal memory
• Pictures are recorded to the internal memory, and when the number of storable still
pictures reaches 0, you must connect the camera to a computer to download the
pictures, and then erase the pictures from the internal memory.
Using an xD-Picture Card (optional)
• Pictures are recorded to the card when inserted in the camera. When the card is
full, you download the pictures to a computer, and then either erase the pictures
from the card or use a new card.
• Pictures are not recorded to the internal memory when a card is inserted in the
camera. Pictures in the internal memory can be copied to the card using the
[BACKUP] function.
g“BACKUP Copying pictures in the internal memory to the card” (P.25)
“The card” (P.60)
Number of storable still pictures and recording length of movies
Still pictures
Movie
• If you use a non-Olympus card or a card used for another application, such as for
a computer, the message [CARD ERROR] is displayed. To use this card with this
camera, use the [FORMAT] function to format the card.
g“MEMORY FORMAT (FORMAT) Formatting the internal memory/card” (P.24)
