I cann't figure out how to delete photos from memory card. lost my manuel


The best way to delete all photos from the card is to format it. This prepares it for further use. FixYa is full of people asking how to salvage pictures from cards that haven't been formatted regularly.

You can download the manual from the manufacturer's web site at

Need to delete photos from C-765 Camedia


At this point I would probably format the memory card in the camera. This will permanently erase all images that have been written to the card. To do this: Press ok - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to Card Setup and then right arrow to Format - Choose Yes and then press Ok. All images are removed and going forward it should only download current images.

My daughter looked to check the memory and accidently erased photos. Is there any way we could get those photos back?


As long as the memory card has not been formatted it is possible to retrieve images that have accidently been deleted. Search in google for image recovery software from media cards . There are a lot of free software sites that allow you to recover images yourself.

I think I can help you; please note that this will erase all photos in memory while formatting the card.

Turn camera on, press the Menu/OK button, arrow down until you get to Setup then press the Menu/OK button. Now arrow down to the last item on page 2 which is FORMAT and press the Menu/OK button. Using the left right buttons select OK and press the Menu/OK button, camera will now format the card and you should be back in business.

Let me know how you make out.

Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the card full message and the card can be used again.

Camera Problems


Hey Dealmeister,
I think what your asking is how to format your memory card so the camera can record images to it. Directions on how to do this are on page 73 of your camera manual. To format your memory card you need to go to the setup menu and use the arrow keys to select OK and then press the menu/ok button to start the formatting. According to the manufacturer formatting should take about 15 seconds and will erase all the current images on your card including protected ones so upload any images you have to your computer first.

Sincerely,
Allan

Hi,

Yes and in several methods as below listed. Since your posting refers to a generic problem for all digital cameras and not only an Olympus FE-230, some of the settings may have a different nomenclature or button name.
1. When you download pictures to you PC, rather than copy, select move; or
2. If you want to erase one picture at a time from the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow down/up, you will be asked to erase the picture displayed, select yes/no by up/down, then press OK (menu button); or
3. If you want to erase all contents of the memory card of the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow right, down to select card, right to select card setup, right to enter card setup, arrow down to select format or erase all, OK. Erase all just erases the files, format erases all and re-initialize the memory card; or
4. Remove memory card from camera and insert into a memory card reader attached to USB of your PC. The memory from the camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.
5. Connect the camera via the supplied cable to any USB port of your PC. The camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.

Specifically for an Olympus FE-230:
1. Press the < or > buttons to display the picture you want to erase;
2. Press the trash can button (bottom right);
3. Press the UP button to select [YES], press OK;

or

To erase all:
1. Press the MENU button to display the top menu in playback mode;
2. Select [ERASE], [ALL ERASE], and press OK;
3. Select [YES], and press OK

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Olympus and card problem


Hi. Thanks for your question, it helped me solve the same problem on my 720 SW. I don't know what initialised the problem but I had the same result - when I turned the power on I only had the option to format the memory card or turn the camera off. The solution was to take the memory card out and download the pictures using a card reader connected to my laptop. When I re-inserted the card and turned the camera on it worked normally. To make sure that everything was again OK I formatted the memory card to make sure it was properly re-set. Good luck and thanks. Rob
