Question about Olympus Camedia C-2500L Digital Camera

1 Answer

My camedia c2500l camera shows a card error message when loaded with a 1gb CF card. The card reads OK on my PC. It is loaded with about 200 photos that have been taken on the camera over the past 2 years and has only just shown this message. Any thoughts please.

    I have reformatted the card on my PC (windows 7) but still have the problem. I am being asked to set a Allocation Unit Size in bytes - any suggestions. The pins look OK, so I don't think it's that. Could the memory be to large - 1GB is much larger than was available when the camera was bought in 1999.

    Sorry to confuse. The camera did work with the CF card for about 2 years, perfectly alright. It started with the error message last weekend.

Get all pictures to your PC and format card on PC(FAT32).
Try to put it in the camera.
If it's not going to work, pins are bent inside the camera's card reader.
Needs service.

    Oh, it's a new card then?
    I thought that it stopped working.
    In that case, yes. Originally camera came with 32MB card.
    1Gb was not available yet, so most likely it's not designed for it.

    Thank you.

    If camera did work with this(1GB) CF card and now it's giving you that error.
    Or camera did work with other CF card, but now neither CF cards are recognized by the camera, but perfectly fine in PC or other camera
    In these cases (as I said before) problem with the card reader pins inside the camera.
    If your camera is working fine with other cards, but not 1GB one, - compatibility issue.

4 gb compact flash card- e10 shows card error


Your camera was designed and built long before CF cards of that capacity had even been envisaged. Your cameras internal hardware was therefore never designed to handle CF cards of a capacity greater than 1GB and could never have been tested (before going into production) on anything higher than the largest capacity then available of 512MB, which still enables your 4MP camera to store hundreds of images even at the highest quality setting.

In practice, your camera *might* work with a maximum capacity of 1GB, although in practice the E-10 had problems handling the 1GB MicroDrives (an obsolete type of CF card containing a miniature hard drive). Take a gamble on a regular 1GB CF card, or play safe and stick to 512MB cards. At least with the latter there are millions of them lying unused and worthless these days and you can usually get them for zilch by asking on your local FreeCycle/Freegle groups.

You have a great camera which is still capable of producing excellent images, but as it's now a twelve year old design you have to accept that the hardware has some limitations.

I took my CF card out to get photos, went to put it back in and the screen read "There is a problem with CF card. Replace the CF card." I didn't think there was a problem with the card. But I replaced...


Your CF pins in the camera are most likely bent/broken. This is a very common problem. Most repair shops will charge $150-$200 to repair this.

Hope this helps.

"error write" memory card XD M 1Gb


You may want to check Fuji's website and make sure that the 1gb card is compatible for the camera. You may need to have the firmware in the camera upgraded to support storage that large.

Picture error on Olympus C-765 Ultra Zoom


Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the picture error message and the cards can be used again.

I'm having 3 different problems with my Canon Rebel XT


According to Canon, Error code 02 means that "There is a problem with the CF card. Try any of the following: Remove and re-insert the CF card. Format the CF card, use a different CF card."

Are both CF cards the same brand? Sometimes some brands have conflicts with the camera, you might try using two different brands.

It may not be the card, did you try on the third attempt to remove the battery and put it back in? There may be a problem with the contact points where the CF card plugs into the camera, or in the transfer system itself.

Extreme Difficulties With My Canon


Problem #1
this is not a problem.. if you leave the camera in the ON setting for long enough.. it goes to sleep ... in order to conserve battery life.. you need to keep some of the buttons pressed for a bit for it to wake up... e.g. keep the picture taking button depressed for 5 secs.

Problem #2
If you were checking the pictures after just shooting them then its probably a CF card problem. You can also get the same error .. i.e. corrupted files from the cameras perspective.. if you use a CF card reader and try to change the pictures on the card.
You should try to connect the CF card that has those pictures to a computer it might be able to open them.. .

Otherwise try another CF card.

Memory card error - E50


Error Code "E50" (CF card formatting error) When a camera error occurs, an error code like "Exx" will be displayed, where the x's represent numbers. The "E50" error code indicates formatting a CF card has failed. Solution To clear the "E50" error, try performing the following procedure. 1. Try using another CF card. If you have another CF card, try loading it in the camera. If the error code is not displayed when the other CF card is loaded, there may be something wrong with the first one rather than with the camera. 2. Use your computer's ScanDisk utility to check the CF card for errors. Use ScanDisk to check the CF card for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your operating system or Windows Help for further instructions. (If you are using a Macintosh, use the "Disk First Aid" program to check for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your Macintosh OS for further information.) Be sure to back up the data on the CF card on the computer before you check the CF card. If a card error or card failure occurs when you use your computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the CF card. Follow ScanDisk's on-screen instructions to solve the problem. If the same error occurs when you are using the CF card supplied with the camera, please contact the retailer where you purchased the camera or the nearest Canon service center. If the error code is displayed right after you took a picture, the image may not have been recorded. Switch the camera to playback mode to check if it was recorded. Precautions for handling a CF card: - Do not remove a CF card or disconnect the camera's power source while the camera is recording, loading, or erasing data on a CF card. - CF cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not bend, force, or subject them to shocks or vibration. - Do not attempt to disassemble or alter a CF card. - Place the CF card in the supplied case for storage. - Moving a CF card rapidly between temperature extremes may cause condensation in the card, leading to potential malfunctions. To avoid condensation, place the CF card in a sealed plastic bag before moving it into a different temperature area and allow it to adjust slowly to the new temperature. If condensation forms on the CF card, put it aside until the water droplets have evaporated completely. - Do not use or store CF cards in the locations subject to dust or sand, high humidity, or high temperatures.
