Question about Olympus Stylus 730 Digital Camera

Corrupted files from xd card

Ok i have a problem with some files, i will try to give as many details as i can. sorry if its a bit too much
I had some videos and pictures in a 1GB xd card in my Olympus Stylus 730.
instead of using the olympus software, i stupidly used a card reader on my PC, opened the card and used the "move to..." command on the files...
when the files were transferred into my hard drive, i couldn't access them any more. pictures or videos. since the "move to..." command does not leave a copy of the original file in the card, i only had the corrupt files in the hard drive. i made a copy of those just in case.
then i copy/pasted those files back into the xd card. i tried using the olympus transfer software from the camera again just in case but it doesnt work
Now, when i turn on the camera with the xd card in it, i just get an option to power off, or format the card.
Is there a way to get those files back or have i messed up beyond hope here?
Maybe those files aren't corrupt, but just in a form that cant be played back?

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.

SOURCE: Olympus Stylus 730 shuts off after few seconds

To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover opens and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode.
Operate the zoom lever or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Panorama Feature on Olympus Stylus 840

Forget the in-pano function and use a free stitching program off the internet. When shooting panoramas, you need to be in aperature priority or manual mode so as to keep the exposure consistant, especially going into the sun or away from it in your pictures. Although this is good practice, it is not needed for a few stitch programs as they average out all the exposures and make the entire pic uniform. This works pretty good in all but the most demanding exposure swings.

What does the card error mean


Can be lots of things. Would have been handy, if you had told what card you are using. Your camera can work with CompactFlash, Microdrive and xD-Picture cards.
If you did not insert the card(s) you are using, correct, or you removed the card in a wrong way, you could have damaged the cardholder, causing an error you probably can't repair yourself. The CF and Microdrive you can remove by pressing the eject button. The xD-Picture card you can remove by pressing in the card, and release it. The card comes out.
Then you could have damaged the file system, by opening the card cover, while the card access lamp was blinking. What ever card was in, the filesystem can be damaged.
Then you can have two cards in, Both, o CF of Microdrive and a xD picture card. Some settings are required for the camera, to know hat card it should use.
If you have an Microdrive, the drive can be damaged, by a magnetic file, or the drive just stopped rotating. A micro drive is actual a miniature spinning hard drive.

First check if the memory card is inserted correct. Eventually, remove it and check all contacts, on the card and in the camera. Then try formatting the card. If you think there could be important pictures on the card, put it in a external card reader and use a recovery program, to see you can recover the pictures on your computer. Programs can be found on the net.
If you can't format the card, check if you have a Microdrive. If so, try to replace that with a CF or xD card.
I hope something is to any use for you.

Next time, please give us some more details. I know you exactly see and know what is not working, but we only can use your description. And only what you give us.

You should try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your XD card, here are some for your options.

Photo Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Recovery for Mac

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

XD card won't format


Sounds like the card might be corrupted, (broken software). Try another XD card in the camera then in the PC. If it's an old card, they can wear out if used a lot or over a long time. There are also rare occasions where a new one can be faulty.

XD card picture error


Try to use a card reader instead. They are only a few dollars. I use one all the time, and hardly ever will use the camera on different models I have.
Never delete from the PC to the camera. It can cause corruption. Once corrupted, you may lose all pictures on the card.
Always delete from the camera, unless you will format the card anyway.
Use the camera and try to delete the bad picture from the camera. this may fix the problem, if not, try to read from another camera or a card reader...don't ever delete from another camera or the card reader.

The last is not good, and that means to format the card, and you will lose all which is on the card.
You may try to copy to internal memory.

One more thing... take out the card. reset all in the camera menu. Then reset all the things you like. Put the card in and try to read each picture in play mode only. If one picture is very slow, delete it. This may take some time as corrupted files may read slowly. then try again.

XD card error


What happens, is the file is corrupted when the camera shuts down while saving the picture. If you have a card reader try saving the pictures on the computer using the reader. You may have to reformat the card (in the camera).

XD Card Not Read by Computer


Hi cruyf, It sounds as if the data (pictures) on your memory card has become corrupted. There are lots of programs that claim to be able to recover deleted files. These are corrupted files so I?m not sure how well they will do. The first program I reference will show you what it can recover but if you want to get the images you have to pay $40 to activate the software. I?ve used this before and it worked for me but be aware there are lots of other programs, some free. Here is the link: http://www.diskinternals.com/products/deleted-data-recovery/ Here is another that claims to be able to recover both deleted and corrupted files: http://www.pcinspector.de/file_recovery/uk/welcome.htm After you have pulled your pictures off the card (or if you give up) you should use the cameras format utility on the card before you use it again. I?ve had this problem on memory cards before and this has fixed my problem. Let us know how it goes and don?t forget to rate the posting.
