I purchased a xd m 1gig card for this camera and it states format or power off, I chose format and the status bar goes about halfway then it states card error and shuts off. Does anyone know the problem and how I can fix this?
Thanks Ben

A camera memory card should always be formatted IN the camera.
Do not format camera memory cards in a computer card reader.

If the card is formatted in the camera and after that the same error pops up,
you should replace the memory card and recheck.

Xd picture card


Greetings FredericoIV,

A common fix for this issue is to use an external card reader, and reformat your card using your computer. Make sure you chose FAT format instead of FAT32 or NTFS.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

I'm needing a driver for my FE-280


I went to Olymbus website to find the driver for the FE-280 Digital camera and it states, no software availble at this time.

They show the camera on the website and I know there is a driver for it, but they are not supplying the consumer with it. Bad choice for Olympus.

I have given you some information and links below:

http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/FE-280%20Instruction%20Manual.pdf

This is the manual for your camera.
Go page 45 at the very bottom. Using a New Card


The FE-280 does not recognize my memory card. What can I do?
First, refer to the xD-Picture Card™ Compatibility Chart to verify that the card is supported in your model. If the card is not supported, return it to the store where you purchased it.
The FE-280 may not recognize non-Olympus brand media or a card that has been formatted on another device, such as a card reader or personal computer. As a general rule, xD-Picture Card media should only be formatted in the camera. Card readers should only be used to copy files from the memory card to an external device.
You may be able to use the card if you format it in the camera.
Warning: Formatting a media card will delete all content on the card.


When I put an xD-Picture Card™ flash memory card into my camera and turn it on, I get a “Card Error” message. What can I do?
This message occurs when the camera is unable to recognize the memory card or when an attempt to format a card fails.
If you see this message after inserting a brand new card, refer to the xD-Picture Card Compatibility Chart to verify that the card is supported in your model. If the card is not supported, return it to the store where you purchased it.
If the card is supported, it may need to be cleaned. Wipe the gold contacts of the card with alcohol using a soft cloth or tissue. When the contacts are dry, insert the card and turn the camera on.
If the Card Error message still appears, remove the card and insert a different supported card into the camera. If the camera reads the second card, then the camera is working properly and the problem lies with the original card.
You may be able to use the card if you format it in the camera.
Warning: Formatting a media card will delete all content on the card.
If you receive this error message after a failed attempt to format the memory card, the card may be defective. For assistance, contact Olympus’ Customer Service and Repair Center using any of the following methods:
Phone: 800-622-6372

This is about updating the olympus Master Software.

If I can do anything else for you let me know

XD Card format


Have you sent the camera to olympus for the free upgrade to enable the xd 512gb and 1gb card? go to the olympic site and then to their support page for c-50zoom and look for instructions for the upgrade,you must have the product ID from the package and the sales receipt and make sure you have purchased the olympus sponsored card mfg.This is listed in the instructions. They get the job done pretty quick and pay for the return shipping.

Olympus 770 not able to move photos from xd card to laptop error message every time


A couple of questions :

What happens when you use "Windows Explorer" to view the contents of the card .
It should appear as just another disk drive in the list .

Are you able to view the contents of the card when you plug the camera into the usb port ?

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.
