I have a 1 GB Mtype xD picture card. Until recently I have been able to take my picture card out of my camera and plug it into my "media centre" on the front of my computer and see and import all the photos off the card. Now, when I plug my card in, I can see, preview and open all my photos up to a certain point and then all the pictures are coming up with a red circle with a line through it almost like a do not enter sign for a one way street. I was wondering if anyone can tell me why and help me be able to utilize my card through my computer again? Please... Thanks, very frustrated :S

Re: Olympus xD picture Card
Try formatting the card.
It may be that there are damaged sections on the card preventing a read from that point on. If this is the case you will need to get a new card - but make sure that your camera supports the size and type of card that you intend to buy. Not all cameras support the most modern cards (No they are not all the same).
Do a Google search using the following string:
(Brand Name) (Model Number) +specifications
You will be able to see what cards are supported and work out from there which ones are not. This info should be in your manual if you still have it.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Your camera supports up to 256mg cards. The Olympus C-740 only supports the xd memory format and very few cameras from other vendors use xd, so the price is higher for the memory you need.
You can replace the card at Amazon.com by clicking here.
You have 2 solutions. 1. you should connecct your camera to your computer using the usb cablefrom the camera, wait that computer finds and install it. You will see the Camera on My computer. 2. You should take off the card from the camera and use a card reader.
Try to use a card reader instead. They are only a few dollars. I use one all the time, and hardly ever will use the camera on different models I have. Never delete from the PC to the camera. It can cause corruption. Once corrupted, you may lose all pictures on the card. Always delete from the camera, unless you will format the card anyway. Use the camera and try to delete the bad picture from the camera. this may fix the problem, if not, try to read from another camera or a card reader...don't ever delete from another camera or the card reader.
The last is not good, and that means to format the card, and you will lose all which is on the card. You may try to copy to internal memory.
One more thing... take out the card. reset all in the camera menu. Then reset all the things you like. Put the card in and try to read each picture in play mode only. If one picture is very slow, delete it. This may take some time as corrupted files may read slowly. then try again.
Go to windows explorer. open my computer on the tree. Look for drives other than 'C' drive. It will be on one of them. It could be listed as D, E, F or whatever your computer is set to name it. Sincle click through it. When you find your pictures, drag & drop them to where you want them.
Ultra-compact with fast data transfer rates, the Type M xD-Picture Card
is currently available with up to 2GB of storage capacity.
Not only do they support the exclusive Olympus Panorama option, they
also activate art effect functions including 3D, oil painting, cartoon
and watercolor. These extra functions which are used in conjunction
with the software provided with your camera will add fun and creativity
to your photography.
So just to clarify, you have a TYPE M XD PICTURE CARD, MADE BY OLYMPUS.
And an Olympus mju770 SW. Now, it is the software on your computer that is going to allow you to make any changes. So first, you need to open that software. Connect the camera to the computer via USB, and voila, extra functions within the software will activate and allow you to edit the pictures with special effects like watercoloring, etc.
You know, you could also achieve the same result by using a powerful image editing tool like Photoshop CS3 or even go back as far as Photoshop 7.0. Or Microsoft Photo Editing can add those effects, and that's free with any XP machine.
