First, try a factory reset on the camera just to be sure it's not something that easy to fix. Also, format any SD cards first in your PC and then format them in the camera if it will allow it.

If that doesn't work make sure the pins inside the card slot are not dirty or damaged. You'll need a strong light and maybe some magnifying glasses. Try blowing a burst of canned air inside but make sure you're holding the can level so you don't spray the propellent.

SOURCE: Olympus Stylus 770SW error message

After only 15 days mine did the same thing. I called the dealer Olympus and they gave me a RAN number and told me where to send it. I got a call about a week later. They said because the camera had moisture inside I was not coverd. The best they would do is mail me a rebate card for 25 dollars off my next purchase. I was like WTF. The woman said sorry but that was all they could do. When I asked to speak to manager she hung up.

SOURCE: CARD FULL with 3 pictures

I'm assuming you are NOT on macro settings, right? and, is it possible that those are movie clips, instead?

SOURCE: my olympus stylus tough 6020

Here is what I found on my Stylus 6020. I have the same problem. In the card reader, there are about 9 fine wire contacts sticking up that brush against the SD card when inserted. By shinning light into the empty SD slot, I found two contacts in the middle are either pushed all the way down or have broken off thus causing a card read error. Only 7 or the nine contacts are touching the SD Card. I do not have a solution for this problem other than warranty. This camera is fairly new and has incurred no damage.

Camera keeps showing card error


You may need to format the card in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics from it first using a card reader.

How do I delete photos from my olympus digital camera?


You need to display the photos in the camera, and there must be a button on the back which enables you to erase pictures (look for a wastepaper basket icon). If you have downloaded all the pictures it is much better to reformat the card. This clears everything off the card and resets it. You need to go into the menu and search through it to find the format card option.

Memory card error


The problem seems to be that the card has been formatted incorrectly (probably by your computer, if you used it in a card reader?). Unfortunately the camera can't reformat it itself, and default computer formatting is incompatible. You'll want to download the program Lowlevelformat.exe from this website--http://olypan.quotaless.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8, install it, reformat your memory card with it, and the camera will be happy with it again.

Ruined Memory Card??


No one can expend efforts to diagnose, repair or let alone talk to you about what may be a 25 to 30 dollar memory card. I've had dozens of such failures but I deal with a fleet of devices and these are spread over the world now. The card, if the camera will not format it is tossed and you get a new one. Whatever you plugged it into is marked as suspect and I'd not do that again.
