Question about Olympus SP-510 UZ Digital Camera
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.
