Hi: Did you unlock the XD?

If the Xd is not unlocked, then you can not access it and format it.

Your Xd might be too big for your camera.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Most newer XD.s have a tiny botton which has two positions lock and unlock. It yours has it, it could be found at the sides or top.



    GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How to format new xD card for Olympus D-390 when I press OK to Format- I get blue Card Error!


The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is a 256mb card without the letter M or H in front of the 256. The 1gb or 2gb cards are not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support storage that large. The cards came out long after the camera did.
