Hello Musat

The problem sounds to be with the card reader of the camera. Most often what happens is that the soldering on the card reader's connection to the circuit board gets loose and if one of these contacts are loose , it gives a card error.

The problem is most likely not firmware or card related and unfortunately opening the camera to check the soldering is not really a user friendly fix. If you send it in , it will cost about $40-$80 to have this fixed.

Have a look under a good light into the card slot and see if you can see anything out of the ordanary that may be blocking the contact pins but if there is none , you probably won't be able to fix this yourself.

If your camera is still relatively new , you should have it fixed under the warrranty service.

Kind Regards
Andrea

Do I have to use a Olympus memory card or can I use a SanDisk SD card


You may use any brand xD Picture Card. The key is that it be an "xD" card, not the far more common "SD" card.

I keep getting the error card not recognized when trying to use an Olympus M+ xd 2gb memory card. How large of a memory card will this camera support?


From what i know and i own a Fuji FinePixA360.According to the Manual 1gb is the highest amount of memory listed.Also you can not put a M+ (high speed) card in the camera will read error.Bascially the Fuji is an older camera and was designed for 1gb and must use the "M" xd picture card (DPC-M1GB) .Thats all the higher memory that was available when the camera was manufactured.I don't know if a 2 gb memory card will work but if you do try one make sure its the older M NOT M+.Hope this helps someone,Gary Malcontent

Picture error


If you have a combo media-reader, put the xD card in that and connect it to computer. Copy all images through the reader. Then format the xD card. Now it should work okay.

How big of memory cards will work with the FUJI S7000


The easy answer is..... 2 Gb.

The longer answer entails fat16 vs fat32 abilities, and the posibility of reformatting your card on the computer in an attempt to possibly get the s7000 to recognise it with mixed success. Since the s7000 is fat16, it can recognise only 2Gb of data.

The xD cards max out at 2Gb. CF goes much higher, but only 2Gb will be recognized.

On a related note, if you do continuous shooting or movies and use an xD card, make sure you get the H-type (not M or M+) as this is higher speed and will avoid timing issues. All of the newer CF cards are plenty fast already.
