could be a couple things.
first: your memory card most likely has a slide switch just switch that back to the unlock mode
second: from olympus guy
put the camera into play back mode. This is where you can see your
picuters on the camera. Then go into the menu and try to go to card
setup. This is 3rd tab. So hit ok hit right for mode menu. then hit
down to you see card setup. Then hit right arrow 2 times and you will
see formatt. Then go to yes and it will say caution somthing. and hit
Now if you have picuters on the card this will delete them so if you
care about them you might want to think about data recovery. But if not
try this and let me know.
"""I don't use the camedia software to download pics from the camera,
neither do I use Xp's picture and scanner wizard. I simply plug my cam
to the usb port and xp detects it as a USB mass storage device. I then
copy the pics from the removable device displayed on My Computer
window. Would you say that this method is not safe?""""
This is best way to do it i think. If you dont want to go into
Cameida. The xp scanner camera wizard works good most time i dont know
why it messes up some camera cards and its really random. One thing i
would say. Formatt the card everytime you download your picuters. Not
in the computer by right clicking on the driver, NEVER DO THIS!! will
blow your card basicly. Do not delete pictuers from you computer with
camera pluged it. Basicly most cameras us a diffrent file system the
your computer. So that can start to mess things up. Just put the card
into camera and do a format.
hope that helps.
