Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera
Xd powercard error
Are you using genuine Olympus cards?.
The Chinese Ripoffs are often 256K reprogrammed to appear to your camera and computer as 1 or 2Mb.
And the chips are mostly rejects. if you compare the two you can usually see that the counterfeits silkscreen printing, is off color or misaligned. The batteries are garbage also..
One thing you might want to try is to buy a bottle of isopropal alcohol ( do not use rubbing, as it contains lanolin) costs you about $.99 Using a Que tip, lightly clean the gold contacts on the Xd cards. Wiping parallel with the contacts.
If you need to replace the card, go to the Olympus website accessories page for your camera.
They have reconditioned 2Mb type M cards for only $20.00
and they are warranted.
Don't bother with the Xd M+ as they are only fractionally faster for video applications. I hope I was of some help.
Best regards, Paul
