Question about Olympus Stylus 710 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Memory Card. My camera is sveral years old but I love it and have not had any problems with it until I took out the memory card which I have never had out and put it into my pc to down load the pictures. I had never done this before so I thought I would try it. Well I was able to download the pictures. I then put it back into the camera it now will not take a picture. It snaps the picture but it then does not process. It acts like it is stuck. I then have to remove the batteries to be able to turn off the camera. Do I need a new memory card?

Re: Memory Card.

Try formatting the card, it maybe has a virus infection. better use another card and format using your camera. or you may try to remove then reinsert the card several times in your camera, this will clean the contact point inside the memory card compartment.

My DSC W90 is 4 years old -- I love it -- and I've never had problem -- with it until now. It rotates pictures on its own! When I view the pix that I've JUST taken, they look fine. When I turn...


If you have an exceptional amount of pictures on your camera...This could be a simple problem solver? You need to remove some or all your of your pictures from your camera to create more memory and storage.

You have a couple of options

Save all your pictures to memory card, from the memory card save to your computer in a file or to a USB Flash Drive (Cruzer), or on a CD/DVD disk.

Or, install a new Memory card that has more Storage Capabilities.

You need to check your setting as to how the pictures are viewed and stored, it's possible you have your camera set to auto rotate and also auto set format...change these settings to manual!

Kind regards!

Memory card filled and I took more pictures. Seemed to put those on the internal memory. What happened too or how can I recover the memory card pictures?

Probably one of two solutions.
First, the memory card should have all the pictures intact. If you are using the camera to review, you may need to just keep going back until the memory card photos show.
Another possibility is that the internal memory supersedes viewing the card memories. You may have to run a USB cable to your computer, download the internal memory photos, and then you can possibly see (on the camera) the memory card photos. It might be a good idea to download those photos to your computer too, if the computer has a memory card slot. Otherwise you will have to go through them and download via the USB again. Once you know the photos are saved, you can either change cards with a new one , or clear the old card and start again.
Good Luck

I took the CF card out of my Rebel XTi EOS camera to look at the pictures on my computer. When I put the CF card back in the camera I am getting the message "There is a problem with the CF card. ...

This is an old posting but I'd like to comment that once the memory card is used in a computer it won't read in the camera again until you format the memory card. Make sure you have all your pictures on the computer before formatting the memory card. A memory card must be formatted in the camera it is going to be used in.

Memory card contains no images after camera turned back on

It may be the images are there but the camera is not reading them... I would try to find a place (possibly a photo retailer or a computer repair place) with a card reader to check out to see if that is the case.

Memory card fitting problem...

Take a strong light and look into the slot where the memory card fits and see if there are any bent pins. If there are, I'm not sure who besides Canon service can fix it, but it sounds like this may be your problem.

EX-Z850 Casio Camera

Same problem. My camera is 3 weeks old. I dropped it at a short distance onto a wooden floor and it immediately said my memory card was locked. I took the memory card out, it was not locked. I tried 4 different cards and they all say the same thing. If I take the memory card out, the camera runs fine on internal memory, but only holds about 8 pics. I've tried everything. Please help!!
