Hey,

the card will most likely need to be formatted on the camera before use, or on the computer if you can't format it on the camera.

have you checked that the camera supports the type of CF card you have there? There are many versions of a CF card and your camera might not support it or it might be too big for the camera.

Hi,

the camera supports xd memory card as instructed by kodak tech support and the instruction manual.

Why does it keep asking me to format when i have already done so. After the format the card is not readible by the camera thus rendering it useless.

Thanks

My new memory card will not work for the Olympus Camedia D-560


The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb card is not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage with that capacity. The camera came out before those cards did and there no plans to upgrade the camera to allow those types of cards to be supported.

Olympus xD-Picture Card "Card Error"


First things first - need to make sure that the card is making proper electrical contact with the camera. Have a look at the contacts at the edge of the card and make sure they are spotlessly clean - even a fingerprint may cause problems.

Also, make sure the contacts in the camera have nothing causing a contact problem, and see if this resolves the issue.

Regards, Andy

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.
