There is no write protect external switch on XD. The error is the result of a bad sector, improper ejection from a media reader, or in the worst case - a file virus. The only solution is a reformat. This will destroy all photos and data on the card, so be sure to save them prior to this step, assuming they can still be seen and read by the camera or a PC.

Both the camera and PC will have reformat utilities for the card. Once this is performed, then the write protect will go away.

Olympus FE-340 Digital Camera uses a the xD memory card, you can use a card reader to read the xD memory card and transfer your data to the PC, just like any external storage drives.

Olympus Software download @ http://www.olympus-europa.com/consumer/208_software.cfm?category=5&productgroup=266&product=&os=11&result=

Hope it helps.

I have a fe-200 olympus camera, after i transferred the images, the memory card say write protect, the memory card has no switch on the side, and now i cant take any pictures happened to both of my memory...


Your camera uses xD memory cards, and they never have a physical locking switch.

Your problem is most likely due to having used the xD card in an external card reader. The host pc sometimes sets the xD card as a "read only" drive. If so you must go back to the host pc and connect the xD card again. If using Windows then click on My Computer and highlight the xD card. Right click and select Properties from the device menu. Uncheck the box marked Read Only.

If that's not the cause of your problem then try re-formatting the card in your camera. NEVER re-format it using a computer.

If those options both fail, try another xD card which is known to be fully functional in your camera. This will determine whether the camera or the card is at fault. The camera is too old to merit the cost of a professional repair, and there's nothing more to be done with a faulty xD card, so replace whichever item is faulty.

You may also wish to consult the user manual for your model which you can download for free from Olympus in .pdf format.

I hope that I've been of assistance, please take a moment to rate my speedy and free answer.

I HAVE AN OLYMPUS MASTER (FE-190 )AND I HAVE LOST SERIAL NUMBER


I looked up the FE-190 and it says it uses XD Memory Cards not discs. Several companys make a card reader that plug into the USB connector
on computers. 2 are Targus and Lexar. You could probable find an XD card reader at Walmart or Radio Shack. The XD memory card will then show up
on your computer screen as a regular folder that contains JPG files, which are the pictures.

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 FE-240


Hi cris9ken.
The little blue bar is your memory gauge.
The Little green bar blinks after each shot just to inform you the shot was loaded into memory.
As the memory fills the green bar will increase in height to give you a approximate idea of remaining usable memory.

You will notice that it function with or without the Xd card.
meaning it displays the favorites memory as well.
Best regards and say CHEESE, Paul
