Card error or camera error?

Both my 2 GB compact flash cards are empty but the LCD display on the camera state that they are full or only have 20 a/v frames. Have the CF cards been corrupted somehow or is it a fault in the camera?

Re: card error or camera error?

I am having the same issue with every CF card I put in the camera. But when I put the CF cards in other card readers, the pictures are able to be viewed. Not sure why the camera isn't recognizing the pics on the cards???

Maybe it's not a card error but your camera is failing? You might buy a 1 Gb SD card and test how it works with a new card

Olympus E520 compact flash card error

I hope you never tried to put in a memory card in, the wrong way around. This could have damaged the contacts in the camera. Or perhaps only one or two contacts in the camera are dirty or oxidised?
With a bright light and perhaps a magnifying glass, look in the memory card holder, to see of all contacts are clean and shiny and not one is bent, ir has a little dent.
If a contact is dirty use a little wooden or plastic tooth pick, to solve the problem. eventually make the point of the pick a bit softer, be cats for rubbing of some dirt, this will be enough. You never should use sharp looks in or close to a camera.

Error message on lcd "card not intialized"

To Funkee Monk

The problem may be due to the size of the cards you are using. The manual for this model only mentions cards up to 512mb in card size as compatible ones. On the Fujifilm's website there is a compatiability chart which does state that the camera can accept up to 2 GB but that some cameras might have to have a firmware upgrade to do so (there is a list of serial numbers at the bottom of the chart to check your camera against.
The link for this is......

Hopefully this will help (& not barking up the wrong tree!)

Error 2

Error 2 has to do with the Compact Flash (CF) memory card.

Try to copy the contents of the card with a card reader into your PC. Then try reformatting the card with your camera, not your PC.

If the card is empty or you don't mind about its contents, try to format the card right away with your camera.

If that does not work, then most probably your CF card is faulty. If it is still on warranty, send it back to the shop and get a new one.

Hope this helps.
