Lost formatting for XD card on my Olympus D-560 camera

The old XD card corrupted on my camera, so i bought a new 2 G XD card. When I insert the card the window opens to Card Setup. I go to Format the card, get ready to say YES and a message tells me "Caution: erasing all." If I say YES a new window says Card Error. If I say no, then the power is shut off. Is is the camera or both cards? IF it is the camera, can I quickly fix it myself or do I need to send the camera in for repairs? Please help!!

    I am having the exact same problem....do you think that the camera cannot support the 1 or 2G cards?

    I have the same problem with a 1G memory card. I looked up the specs on this camera. The max memory listed is 256 M.



    But, the only reason I bought the 1G card was because the camera started giving the memory card error message on the old 128 M card I bought when I got the camera.



    I now have a card reader on my computer and I reformatted the 128M card using my computer and it now seems to work ok in the camera. The 1G card is ok in the computer, but won't work in the camera.



    I think that memory cards above 256 M aren't supported by this camera.

    I have tried several 1gig cards and still have the same symptions as all others.

    The Olympus Digital cameras that are approx 5mega pixcels or less will only work with less than 1G or less cards. A C-350 will only work with 256 or less cards.
    The XD cards are the best quality by design on the market.
    XD cards can be taken to a high end camera shop and for little or no cost the contents can be rescued and be reformated.
    For that matter they might replace the card for free!!
    My Fuji S8000 camera that takes XD & SD cards firm ware is designed for 1G or less, it will run 2G. I was advised not to format the card in the camera and not to fill the card with files that are greater than 1G.
    Advice:
    If you wish to take panaramic photos, use the soft ware that comes with the FUJIFILM XD or SD cards called Panorama Maker 4, and you can join any photo to any photo. Olyimpus cards lock in the order of the photos taken and cant be changed easley!!

    I can't read my 1 GB XD card on my Stylus 500. Olympus support says that it's supposed to be compatible with 1 GB & 2 GB cards. The camera was made in 2005 when there wasn't any 1 GB XD cards.

    All tech support could say is it could be your card reader. But my reader does fine with the 256MG XD card for the same camera.

    When I turn the camera on it autmomatically goes to card setup with the option of formatting or turning the power off. It won't format and I can't use the camera.

    My card was doing the same thing.

    Solution: with the card not being read by your PC automatically.

    If you can identify the Drive slot such as Removable disc :F or :J of :G etc. Then right click on the letter and select explore. Then open the file "Oly" for Olympic Or Fuji which is the storage file on the card that your camera writes to.

    The you can highlight the photos you want and Right click and use cut to remove photos permanently or copy to copy photos to paste the photos in to the folder you choose, or you can click drag and drop.



    My in built card reader was not reading my cards, so I VERY CARFULLY pulled the card reader lead out from the mother board while on, then pushed back in ofter 10 seconds and it then discoverd the card reader and the card as if I had pulled the card out and pushed it in again.

    When a card reader is reading a card the LED light will come on do not remove the card while the card is loading. Right click the same as explore and select eject before removing!!!

    The older Olympus Digital cameras take 256k and no larger.

    Long term, get a good used or a new Olympus that suites your needs. The XD cards will fit the Fuji cameras but not all Fuji cameras as the older Fuji cameras use SD cards.

    The XD M or H cards are faster loading and as a result you can take possibly double the photos without flash on the same batteries as they more power efficient.

  • Walter Dominguez Mar 30, 2009

    When you obtain the maximum size card that suits your camera as the older cameras don't recognize larger cards ( ph call to Olympus will help), you should then format the card to suit the camera.

    In my case I have an Olympus and a Fuji and I swop cards between them with out formatting without any major problems.

    If I need a particular photo on that card I right click the card click explore in my card reader and open ether Oly or Fuji file. When cleaning out a card DON"T delet these files, just the photos.

    If you delete all the files and the files that contain the photos you might have to FORMAT the card!!!!

    If you need to formot the card, your nearest quality camer shop might do it for free!!!

Format problems of Olympus 1Gb card with C-750UZ


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.

Clean or format card error on Olympus XD card


There are most likely some "corrupted" images on your xD card. Very often a card reader "writes" data to the card while transferring or copying images into the computer. When you re-insert the card back into the camera, it doesn't recognize the new data (because it didn't create it), and gives the error, usually requiring a complete formatting be performed. There are also problems if you use a reader to rotate images, then re-install the card in the camera. The best way to accomplish what you were doing is to transfer the images into a folder on your computer, as the camera shot them (don't rotate them first). That way, you haven't altered any data on the card. For now, however, I suggest you format the card in the camera, so you can start with a "clean slate". Good luck.

D-560


Is that card compatible with that camera. They make HD (high definition) cards (4gig and above) that will only work with newer camera's. Of course, i am speaking of SD cards. But the XD may have a similar feature.
That is the exact error i got when i tried to use an HD card in my 5 year old camera.
Try downgrading to a smaller memory card. Also, is that memory card exactly as the one you have had prior to this?
