Question about Olympus Camedia E-10 Digital Camera
Hey Joseph, the solution depends on one of a couple of things...
How large is the compact flash (i.e., is it 1GB or 12GB...) and is it a type I, II or one of the newest ultra type III.
Given those two criteria, if the card is 2GB or smaller you may have to format the card to FAT (not FAT 32). Some of these cards can be done simply by going into "my Computer", selecting your CF and right clicking your options, obviously choosing format. Select to format it as FAT and then UNcheck the "quick" option. Just let the computer take its time and format the card.
This SHOULD allow the card to be read by the camera. If not, then there could be a conflict with the actual size of the card or a formatting option that has to usurped by a software fix (I don't have the answer to that one yet, but soon will be there).
Lastly and more obnoxiously, there could be the case of a bad CF. It does happen. I had bought another CF myself in hopes of my same issue being a manufacturer's bug, but I still have the same problem.
If I get this figured out, I'll re-post with my results and see if it helps you out. Otherwise, I figure you solved your prob.
Best of luck...
