Your camera can't Please don't try to put any SD card in your camera. It will destroy the camera. You camera only accepts xD cards. It is a complete different card size and works different.
There are xD micro drives, but I would not buy them. it is a very small HD and are not made for years. So if you find one, it is likely it is defect.
But if you can find a 1 Gb xD card, you can put lots and lots of pictures on it.

Most KODAK Digital Cameras are compatible with SD, SD/MMC, and/or SDHC memory cards.
Most current KODAK Digital Cameras are compatible with SDHC UHS-1 memory cards.
All KODAK Digital Cameras that are compatible with SDHC and SDHC UHS-1 memory cards use cards with Speed Class up to Class 10.
MicroSD and MicroSDHC cards with SD adapters can also be used in cameras that use SD or SDHC cards if the storage capacity criteria above is followed.
KODAK Digital Cameras are not compatible with SDXC memory cards.
The Olympus compatibility chart on their website says that your camera works with type M and M+ sizes 256MB - 512MB. The chart also says 256MB - 512MB for type H and 16MB - 512MB for standard xD cards. It looks like the largest size xD you can use of any type is 512MB. The D560 is quite an early digital camera and it is not unusual to have card size limitations.
I'll write the same repost as another I just did, as it
sounds like your problem is the same or similar. Hope it helps solve
your problem as well even though it's a different camera and memory
Not knowing what model Olympus camera you have, or how old it is - your
new memory card "format" problem is one of 3 possibilities.
1st - If you have an older Olympus camera more
then 4-5 years old the newer M & H series type cards over 256mb
will probably not work in your older camera, as by the camera's
internal firmware chip design of the camera itself. Some cameras were
upgradeable some weren't as to the internal firmware chip as well as
available software drivers depending on which computer OS system you
were using ie: (WIN98SE, WIN2000, etc). Has to do with the memory card
read/write chip speed as well, and also has to do with the physical
storage size of the card itself. Some digital cameras were MAXED OUT at
512mb cards, some as low as 256mb. A 2gb card simple won't work in
that/your camera in that case.
If you read the camera's user manual it will possibly tell you this, or
else go online to www.olympusamerica.com and use this link:
Select camera model series and scroll down the model # and research the
max card size & type you can use (3 basic XD card speed types
available - regular XD - M type - H type).
If you are using the wrong type & size card you will need to return
that card (if you can) and get the right XD size & type for your
2nd - You should always FORMAT (same as ERASE ALL and FORMAT modes on
most Olympus cameras) the new card, or any XD card for that matter in
your camera itself. NOT THE HOME COMPUTER!!! The 2 format procedures
are not the same!!
If you are re-shooting (re-using) the same XD card over and over again
and then downloading the JPEG pix directly to the computer using a USB
interface cable there usually is no need to re-format the card again as
long as the XD card stays the camera and is not downloaded into a home
computer via a "card reader". If you do the latter "card reader" then I
would advise doing a card re-format in the camera again just to be
And lastly - If your home computer recognizes the XD card via a good
"card reader" (do not FORMAT the XD card here btw, as you are just
checking the card out to see it is GOOD is all), but the camera will
not then that is a good sign your camera is OK, but it's just the wrong
type & size XD card.
Hope this helps solve your camera XD problem not knowing which model you have.
The xD-Picture card is the memory card where the D-390 stores the pictures. xD-Picture Cards come in a variety of sizes currently ranging from 16MB through 256MB. Larger capacity xD cards allow you to store more pictures.
