CARD ERROR ON OLYMPUS 710 STYLUS

WHEN REPLACING CARD AFTER DOWNLOADING TO COMPUTER, I GET CARD ERROR MESSAGE AND THE ONLY OPTION AVAILABLE IS TO RE-FORMAT THE CARD. 

HOW CAN I AVOID THIS AND KEEP THE PHOTOS ON THE CARD?

    I have the same problem but I am scared of reformatting my card for fear that I will lose the pictures. How do I know if I reformat the card that the pictures will not get lost (they are wedding pictures). Please HELP!

    Same problem. Camera is 2.5 yrs old. the problem started 4 months ago. spent $130 to get it repaired. The repair lasted about 2 months. I now have photos on the card that I can't access, so reformatting is not a viable solution. Plus, I am now fairly sure that this problem will recur in the future.

    It looks to me like this camera, like just about every other consumer product, is basically an invitation to throw your money away.

It was a pain in the ***, but I was able to open and salvage my photos using the easy print option. Time for a new camera...

I repeatedly removed, ref-formatted and replaced the card.  I did this 3-4 times and, while the battery did run down rather quickly, the card error problem seemed to be resolved.

I took some sample pics, download to comptuter, replaced card in camera and was delighted to find them still visible, and no card error message came up.

I hope this is a permanent solution.... and will have to check again when I have a chance to download again.

Look at your memory card it may have a small switch to protect pictures from being erased or changed. Download what you have taken and reformat card.

Error message on olympus camera


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 Menu button - right arrow to Setup- right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.

Try formatting it in the camera first.
But a couple of cards is a good insurance any way
