Question about Olympus Stylus 730 Digital Camera
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?

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.

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.

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.
