After owning my 8080 for over a year, it suddenly comes up with the Card Setup screen every time I turn it on. If I choose Setup, it goes to a Busy bar and gets halfway done and times out. The camera goes black but does not power off. It does not give me and option to Not format the card, only format or power off. I have swapped out cards, swapped out batteries, formatted the cards on my computer and tried again. I'm stumped. The cards are read no problem on my computer and I've trasfered all the data from them. Help?

Re: Card Set Up Error
XD or compact flash? If its the xD, format it in a Fuji camera at a camera store (just ask to see a demo and explain to the guy you want to see if the camera will work with that card...) Fuji seems to format cards better than Oly, even the tough ones. If it is compact flash, look inside the socket for any bent pins, common for that type of card.

Hey! I did this today in my camera, trying to solve another problem (it asks for me to set up date, language and time every time I turn the cam on)... and I got the same error as yours. If you can still turn it on, push MENU while it is on, before the error message appears. And then go to SET UP and choose format card. Then it should work. Good luck!
It's just the memory card. This error message comes up when the card sustains damage to any degree. Did you lend your camera or card to anyone or put the card into the wrong reading drive by accident? It may be time for a new memory card/stick. Exchange it if it's still under warranty.
Please try to take as many pictures from memory stick as you can then format memory stick through format option in setup. Hope this will resolve this blue access issue. You can use another memory stick like 1GB in this camera.
It may have jumped a tooth, something like a car timing chain. The Zoom in this camera is a barrel that has 3 cams that rides inside another barrel that has "tracks" for the cams. The motor rotates the the outer barrel via gear teeth, forcing the inner barrel to extend or retract. There is a tab on the gear teeth that might index the position of the zoom lens. If this tab is in the wrong position, if the gear jumped a few teeth, the camera may not know where the zoom lens is in relation to the inner focusing lens, and cause the "zoom error" If that is the case, I can help you get it back into position. This is a theory, but does explain the tab on the gear and the constant zooming.
Try resetting your camera. In picture taking mode press menu. Go to setup, go up to reset, press right arrow, make sure reset is highlighted and press set.
Then TAKE OUT MEMORY CARD. Go back into menu, go to setup, go up to format, press right arrow and highlight format, press set. Input ur date and time again and then power off and back on. If that doesn't help then you have to send into repairs. 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 2 and they will tell you where to send it.
The Same thing just happened to mine said my card wasn't formatted, tried several card with no luck, the tell me too much money to have looked at $150 min they say buy a new camera.
Always get extended warranty for 2-3 years the 49.95 is worth it in the long run.
i think you have broken or bended any of the pin inside the card slot, and that is creating problem. Try looking in the card slot you may find any of the connector pin broken or bended. Try straighten the pin cautiously and may your machine start working .
