Card Full but showing none

My Olympus Camedia Stylus 300 is suddenly showing 'card full' message but nothing when plugged into the computer, either directly or through card reader. I have been using it for more than 6 years and I always transfer the pics though the camera's USB port and format the card using camera menu. I have my son's birthday pics and many precious pics ther. Can I have my pictures back? Please HELP! Nadia

As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased,lost or corrupted. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge.
http://www.z-a-recovery.com/
You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and many people have had much success in recovering lost images.

Data recovery is a booming industry, and many appropriate services and software can be found by searching regional phone and business directories or the Internet for terms such as "image recovery" or "data recovery".

Olympus Stylus 300 keeps reporting card error on different cards. Tried reformatting and the error persists. What to do?


First, try a factory reset on the camera just to be sure it's not something that easy to fix. Also, format any SD cards first in your PC and then format them in the camera if it will allow it.

If that doesn't work make sure the pins inside the card slot are not dirty or damaged. You'll need a strong light and maybe some magnifying glasses. Try blowing a burst of canned air inside but make sure you're holding the can level so you don't spray the propellent.

Olympus SP500 connection problems to Windows 7 via USB port. Software is unable to find an Olympus digital camera on a USB port on your computer.


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Card is full; all pictures have been downloaded to my computer. How do I "delete all" from the camera? Olympus Stylus 300


In playback mode press >ok< select >mode menu< with the 4-arrow-pad, then select >card< then >card setup< then press the PLAY button below the arrow pad. Select >all erase< with the up/down buttons of the 4-arrow-pad and then press OK (the button beside the PLAY button). Confirm by selecting >yes< with the up/down button and press OK button again.
It's also a good habit to get into, to format the card after deleting the images (you can also just format the card - that will also delete all photos). To format the card start as above (Mode menu; card; card setup; press PLAY). Select >format< with up/down buttons then press OK. Select >yes< and press OK.

Hope that helps

Camera keeps showing card error


You may need to format the card in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics from it first using a card reader.

I cant load my olmpus 300 on to pc,loaded camedia on ok but wont pick up my camera,tried to load it using devices butsays not in right file.checked usb devices,tried to add device but not having it


Consider NOT using the USB connection.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I installed a 2gb Olympus xd picture card and formated it replacing the 16mb Olympus xd picture card. Now the yellow light blinks for a full minute before the camera is ready to take pictures. This happens...


wow that is kinda long did you format it in the camera or on your computer? also if you turn down the video/picture quality it will not take so long but 2 min is kinda long you might have a bad card take it back where you got it and see if they will swap it for a different one format it in the camera and try again if it is still slow try to format it in your computer and use FAT32
this is the most compatible and should work best Thanks 8^)

Card Full when not full


I would format the card. Make sure you format the card IN the camera. Don't use a card reader or your pc. If that doesn't work (I'm sure it will), then you have a bad card.

Olympus 300 digital stylus


Hi Bonnie, don't know what problems you are having as you havent specified, but i do know that if you use a memory card higher than 512mb, it will appear as though it is not working! 512mb xd card is the highest you can use for this camera, you can also use a fuji memory card, hope this helps! Check the memory card! :)

Ruined Memory Card??


No one can expend efforts to diagnose, repair or let alone talk to you about what may be a 25 to 30 dollar memory card. I've had dozens of such failures but I deal with a fleet of devices and these are spread over the world now. The card, if the camera will not format it is tossed and you get a new one. Whatever you plugged it into is marked as suspect and I'd not do that again.
