According to http://www.maxram.co.uk/Digital_Cameras/Olympus/Olympus_CAMEDIA_D_580_Zoom.aspx, the D-580 will take a 2GB XD card. And from the specs at Olympus's site (http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_archived_product_details.asp?id=956&fl=4), it seems it doesn't need to be an H-type card to be able to shoot movies--apparently the regular M-type card will work fine for movies.

Hi!

Maximum memory size for your camera is 256MB (according to the manual). However, some users claim that the camera can support up to 512MB. To be safe, just use a 256MB card.


Good luck and have a nice day!

SOURCE: problem with olympus digital camera d-395

The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is a 512mb card without the letter M or H in front of the 2gb. 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 are no plans to upgrade the camera to allow those types of cards to be supported.

As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased,lost or corrupted. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge. http://www.z-a-recovery.com/ You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and many people have had much success in recovering lost images. Data recovery is a booming industry, and many appropriate services and software can be found by searching regional phone and business directories or the Internet for terms such as "image recovery" or "data recovery".

DEAR SIR, I HAVE C-150 WITH 16MB CARD. I WOULD LIKE TO UPGRADE THE MEMORY CARD. WHAT IS THE LIMIT AND WHICH CARD SHULD I PURCHASE IF SO.


The manual recommends "no more than 256mb"

>> Memory : xD-Picture Card (16 – 256MB)

Here's the manual (free download)
http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/OLYMPUS/C-150-_E

Whilst Olympus made the xD card in sizes up to 2GB, the very large cards are not worth risking on three counts:
(1) Manual recommends max of 256MB (Although that might just have been the limit of production, when this camera was issued).
(2) Generally, multiple smaller cards give you more flexibility than one bit card (and they attract less of a premium).
(3) A 2GB card, if it worked, would store an infeasibly large amount of pictures on one card - it would be very hard to sort them, and you really would have "all your eggs in one basket" - remember that card, like any other magnetic media, can fail, especially over time.

So 256MB is plenty, and its an xD card (Distinguishable by its curved profile along one on the long sides).

Hope this helps.

XD memory card confusion


The xD-Picture Card (xD stands for "extreme digital.") is a flash memory card format developed and introduced to the market in July 2002 by Olympus and Fujifilm, and manufactured by the Toshiba Corporation. xD cards are in Olympus and Fujifilm digital cameras, and are available in a range of sizes, from 16 MB to 2 GB currently. A higher-performance xD card known as Type M came out in 2005, and uses Multi Level Cell (MLC) architecture.
An xD card is 20mm x 25mm x 1.78mm and weighs about 2.8 g, making it significantly smaller than the nearly matchbook-sized CF card and about half the size of the SD/MMC card. As far as size goes, it is much closer to miniSD or RS-MMC. The manufacturer listed write speeds for xD-Picture Cards are: for the 16 MB and 32 MB card, 1.3 MB/s and for the 64MB and higher cards, 3 MB/s. Both offer a minimum read speed of 5 MB/s. The xD Type M cards have a faster standard rate of 4.0MB/s for reading and 2.5MB/s for writing.
Anything up to 2gb will work with your camera, either the type M or the type M+ will be fine.

Can a Camera's Factory-Delivered XD Memory Card Limit Be Upgraded from 1 GB to 2 GB.


there is unfortunately no (easy) way to upgrade something like that...you'd probably have to actually tear it apart. but, maybe fujifilm might have released a firmware update to fix that problem *not that they would* but you could try plugging in the camera to your computer and try downloading firmware for it, they should have it on the website.

Upgrade olympus d-560 256 mb memory to 2 gb memory


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. Due to the age of the camera Olympus has no plans to provide any upgrade for allowing a larger memory card.

Memory card


I'll write the same repost as another I just did, as it sounds like your problem is the same or similar. Hope it helps solve your problem as well even though it's a different camera and memory card type.


Kristina,

Not knowing what model Olympus camera you have, or how old it is - your new memory card "format" problem is one of 3 possibilities.

1st - If you have an older Olympus camera more then 4-5 years old the newer M & H series type cards over 256mb will probably not work in your older camera, as by the camera's internal firmware chip design of the camera itself. Some cameras were upgradeable some weren't as to the internal firmware chip as well as available software drivers depending on which computer OS system you were using ie: (WIN98SE, WIN2000, etc). Has to do with the memory card read/write chip speed as well, and also has to do with the physical storage size of the card itself. Some digital cameras were MAXED OUT at 512mb cards, some as low as 256mb. A 2gb card simple won't work in that/your camera in that case.

If you read the camera's user manual it will possibly tell you this, or else go online to www.olympusamerica.com and use this link:

View which cameras are compatible

Select camera model series and scroll down the model # and research the max card size & type you can use (3 basic XD card speed types available - regular XD - M type - H type).

If you are using the wrong type & size card you will need to return that card (if you can) and get the right XD size & type for your camera.

2nd - You should always FORMAT (same as ERASE ALL and FORMAT modes on most Olympus cameras) the new card, or any XD card for that matter in your camera itself. NOT THE HOME COMPUTER!!! The 2 format procedures are not the same!!

If you are re-shooting (re-using) the same XD card over and over again and then downloading the JPEG pix directly to the computer using a USB interface cable there usually is no need to re-format the card again as long as the XD card stays the camera and is not downloaded into a home computer via a "card reader". If you do the latter "card reader" then I would advise doing a card re-format in the camera again just to be safe!!

And lastly - If your home computer recognizes the XD card via a good "card reader" (do not FORMAT the XD card here btw, as you are just checking the card out to see it is GOOD is all), but the camera will not then that is a good sign your camera is OK, but it's just the wrong type & size XD card.

Hope this helps solve your camera XD problem not knowing which model you have.

Best regards,

Frank
