Question about Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cannot read xD card

I bought a 1GB xD card and loaded it with pictures until recently deciding to download. Initially everything looked normal (I typically open the camera as a folder and do a straight drag and drop to a folder on my computer) but then I noticed it stopped making thumbnails about halfway down. I started over and now the order of the pictures seems jumbled (the ones I can see anyway) and no matter what I try, I get the error that the source file cannot be found or read. Anyone have any suggestions?! Seems like the data is there, but maybe the table of contents file is screwed up?

Sounds like th FAT (file allocation table) is corrupt, its like the table of contents and if it goes, there is no way the camera knows where it put the pics, there is data recovery programs available online that can help. All is NOT lost....

I was recently given the FinePix E550 by someone who had purchased a newer camera. I do not have the usb cord to download pix and my Dell 942 All-in-One will not recognize the camera card. What do I need...


Hi

The problem you are experiencing with your Fuji FinePix E550 could be down to a number of reasons.

You do not say the memory card size you are using but the Dell 942 will probably only read cards xD-Picture Cards 1Gb or lower.

It maybe a better idea to remove the xD card from the camera and use a USB card reader to take the images off the card. Alternatively you could buy a replacement USB cable

Hope the suggestions help.

Hi i have an finepixa350 digital camara , i had lost the xd picture card the came with it so i got an Olympus xd m+ 2bg card and it keeps coming back "card error" help!


Your problem is that you have purchased an incompatible memory card.

The largest capacity xD card which your camera can use is 1GB, but it works better with a maximum of 512MB as 1GB can make the camera operations a little sluggish.

There are no updates to enable your camera to use the latest xD cards as the limitation is a hardware issue due to evolving technology.

You therefore only have two fixes: replace the xD card with a maximum 1GB capacity (but preferably 512MB), or replace your camera with one of the recent models which accepts the 2GB xD card.

I hope that I have provided you with a clear explanation and practical options to fix your problem. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

Mju 400 slow down with 2GB xD-PicCard?!?!


It's possible that your camera, being 7 years old, was never designed for a 2gb card. You can find cards of all sizes at amazon.com

Screen reading memory card not initialized


It sounds like your XD card is corrupted. How and why i couldn't tell you. You will need to get the pictures recovered from the card using a special software (image recovery software, can down load for free from some web sites, or some companies can try and do it for you) and then try and format the card in the camera. DO NOT FORMAT THE CARD BEFORE YOU RETRIVE YOUR IMAGES. If you do all traces of the images may be lost.

All the best and happy snapping.

Try using a different Memory card and see if it reads it, if not you might need to replace the memory card reader.
