Question about Olympus Camedia D-510 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Card problems My camera is not letting me delete bad pics off of my card. We have gone through several cards, while I am a novice at cameras , I am pretty sure this isint supposed to happen. When there is a bad pic I see a grey box with a crooked arrow through the middle. I try to delete them but it wont let me. And now it says my card is full when I know that I have no pictures on it. So I am not sure If I have just bought bad cards or the camera has problems. My card reads : M-8P D3V20 Any help operating this camera would be a great help. Thank you, Crystal Hind

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 With smartmedia, since there is no dedicated controller, the card's bad block table can get out of date.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.

The card has corrupted. The pics are still there, you just can't see them. But you'll need to use recovery software to retrieve them. Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones:

First of all, do you know you're supposed to download the pics from your full card to your computer and then format the card in the camera? Keeping them on the card is risky since the cards are not made for long term storage. The pics can degrade over time. Formatting completely erases a card and that's what happened with your new card. All new cards should be formatted in the camera before using....that's what your camera was trying to tell you.

Cant review pics on camera or computer, but camera says card is full


This occassionally happens with memory cards formatted using FAT. The simplest way for you to get the pics of the card when such a thing happens is to get a card reader. Pop the card in to the card reader, connect it to your PC and transfer the pics. Then format it using FAT32. I have noticed that my card was a lot more reliable in saving pics compared to FAT.
