Question about Olympus Camedia D-510 Zoom Digital Camera
In this case I would try to use SMPREP Smartmedia formatting utility on the problem card. Basically I was able to get an older ZIO! Smartmedia reader that supports SMPREP off Ebay for $7 total for a similar situation where I had a couple of useless problem cards that I had laying around for a couple of years. IMHO Smartmedia is a little more prone to getting problematic because the card is simply a raw flash memory chip, with no sort of dedicated controller to watch over it. All Flash based memory cards have bad block management that finds and corrects most bad areas on the card automatically that is transparent to the user. With smartmedia, since there is no dedicated controller, the card's bad block table can get out of date. The SMPREP utility scans the card and rebuilds the bad block table so the card will be like new again.
