Xd card formatting

I purchased a 2gb xd card and my camera gives me a card error when I try to format it. I updated the firmware to V754e-85-D01 and the problem is still there. Any thoughts?

    I tried formatting the xD, M+2GB picture card in my Olympus Camedia C-740 and it keeps coming up as card error. What is wrong? Does the "M" have anything to do with the problem?

Card error???


Depending on the size of the xD card, your camera may need a firmware update to be able to read xD cards larger than 256mb. If the card used to work but now doesn't, try formatting it as FAT16 or FAT32 while it's inserted into the camera. If you still get an error and you have a card reader on your PC, try formatting it from there as FAT16 or FAT32 file formats.

Format problems of Olympus 1Gb card with C-750UZ


The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb card is not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage with that capacity. The camera came out before those cards did and there no plans to upgrade the camera to allow those types of cards to be supported.

Reformat of XD card - comes up with card error


The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb or 2gb cards are not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage with that capacity. The camera came out before those cards did and there no plans to upgrade the camera to allow those types of cards to be supported.

As far as the 128mb card is concerned if it gets a card error message try cleaning off the gold contacts on the back of the card and reinserting it to the camera. If it still gives an error it may be a problem with the internal card reader in the camera.
