Question about Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera
I bought the C-8080 when it first came on the market several years ago. I've always used one of two cards I have and downloaded onto iPhoto. Twice within the last couple of months I've taken pictures only to have my computer say the card is unreadable. When I reinsert the card into the camera the LCD comes up with wanting to reformat the card. This has not happened sequentially in that I've downloaded since this first occurred.
I don't know if this is a problem with the camera or the fact that I've reused my cards multiple times.
Hi Craig Click,
CF cards are flash memory based technology and as such have the practical limitation of 500-1000 overwrite cycles before they can become unstable. I would suggest you have a card(s) which are reaching this stage in its life. Beg, borrow or buy another card to see if your luck changes....I suspect it will.
