Question about Cameras

1 Answer

"Please describe your clean terminal xd card dry cloth problem": Well, that is exactly what my Olympus camera tells me to do whenever I switch it on! No amount of wiping makes any difference. I also went to a local photography shop where they tried my card in a reader (with no response whatsoever), and in one of their cameras, and again there was the request to clean it with a dry cloth. The shop said there is nothing that anyone can do. Please prove me wrong! By the way, the card is an Olympus xD-Picture Card, M2GB, and it has been working perfectly until now. Best wishes Iiris Pursiainen

Sorry, but every indication confirms that you have a faulty memory card. It's either a manufacturing error or a handling error (you should never normally touch the contacts except as you have already been directed to do so).

There is only one fix and that is to replace it.

You may find that your xD is still under warranty in which case it will be exchanged by Olympus free of charge. In practice I've found that with major brands, faulty memory cards are often exchanged free on a goodwill basis even after the warranty has expired, especially when my politely-worded letters point out how loyal I've been in the past to the brand and that my money will be going to a rival company if I'm forced to buy a new card.

I regret that your card is unrepairable, but I hope that my reply has still confirmed that there is no other solution to your problem.

Get an inexpensive card reader and use it to download your pics to your computer. Then, format the card in the camera to erase and initialize it. It should work properly then and your pics will be safely stored on your computer. typrice_129.jpg

Problem with olympus fe-270


I would suggest you to load your xD card on another multi card reader to isolate the possible problem. You may have a good chance to retrieve your pictures.

Some card readers come in with free photo recovery software. For example the TS-RDP8R (13 in 1) could get the job done for $15.
