Please make sure the capacity of your microSD card is not larger than the maximum card capacity allowed by your device. For example, if the maximum card capacity allowed by your device is 16 GB and your card capacity is 32 GB, your device may not recognize it. And is the "unmount SD card" option grayed out or solid ?
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.
The camera can take whichever capacity card your want. Type 1 and 2 CF cards up to and past 16GB are available. It is really what you can afford and how many frames you want to put on a single card before downloading it.

Formatting a CF Card
You should always format a new CF card or one from which you wish to erase all images and other data.
Please note that formatting a CF card erases all data, including protected images and other file types. Please check the contents of the CF card before formatting it.
Turn the power on.
Press the <MENU> button and select [ (Set up)] using or .
Select (Format) using or and press the <SET> button.
Select [OK] using or and press the <SET> button.
To cancel formatting instead, select [Cancel] and press the <SET> button.
The capacity of the CF card displayed after formatting will be less than the rated capacity of the CF card. This is not a malfunction of the CF card or camera.
Press the <MENU> button.
If the camera does not work properly, the inserted CF card may be malfunctioning. Reformatting the CF card may solve the problem.
When a non-Canon brand CF card is malfunctioning, reformatting it may solve the problem.
CF cards formatted in another camera, computer or peripheral device may not operate correctly. When that happens, reformat the CF card with this camera.
If you know that your CF card is working (e.g. as in your camera) then the most likely cause is your computer Flash/CF reader either inbuilt or external): older readers (and cameras/phones) will not support High Capacity (xxHC) card and will be limited to a maximum of 2GB.
Hope it helps.
Yes, i t should be unless it is a SDHC Card which it should not be as SDHC cards have minimum 4 GB capacity. For more info:
The older SD (secure digital) cards had a maximum capacity of 2GB. The
SDHC (secure digital high capacity) cards can go to 32GB. Devices that
support SDHC will say so in their specs and they will also read older
SD card. Older devices that use SD cards will NOT use SDHC.
"SDHC (Secure Digital High-Capacity) cards are flash memorycards with a minimum capacity of 4GB (gigabytes). SDHC cards provide removable memory for compatible digital devices including cameras, camcorders, PDAs, MP3 players and more.
Your camera was designed to be fully CF compliant, but it was designed long before 4GB cards were available so your problem is likely to be that the camera cannot handle a card of that large a capacity.
I've checked the Olympus servicing manual but unfortunately it doesn't state a maximum CF capacity and there have been no relevant firmware updates to extend CF compatibility.
When your camera was released back in 2003 the largest capacity CF card was 1GB so I suggest that you don't go above that size. You'll also be wasting your money on any more than a regular Sandisk Ultra as the camera cannot take advantage of the faster data transfer rates of later cards, I'm not even certain that it can utilise the speed advantage of an Ultra over a really basic model, but it won't cause the camera to throw it's toys out of the pram either.
I hope that you've found my reply to be of use and ask in return only that you return the goodwill and rate my answer.
4GB requires FAT32. Camera firmware only supports FAT16. 4GB won't work because FAT16 has a 2GB maximum size limitation. 1GB CF card is Nikon's "approved" maximum for this camera.
Catch: 22 1GB -and lesser capacity- CF cards are no longer manufacturered or generally available in 2010. When the current CF card dies, the still working camera also becomes throwaway unless you can source a CF card 1GB or under. 2GB may work, but with 'issues' per caution below.
CAUTION: Anecdotal evidence suggests the final release -& current- firmware for cameras of this generation is also encumbered by with a maximum picture number limitation of 999, realistic at the time of original manufacture when 256MB was a the largest capacity CF card but completely nonsensical now.
Summary: This is my first NIkon Digital camera and also my last.
Apart from the noteriety of the ubiquitous broken Nikon plastic battery latch, a major design flaw Nikon refuse to acknowledge or accept liability to rectify -since self-repaired better than OEM, Nikon policy on firmware support is complete abandonment of product within an unacceptably short service window. ie: a deliberate poilicy of enforced obsolescence.
Suggested Problem Remedy: Do buy a new camera supporting SD Cards of current capacities. Don't buy anything branded Nikon.
