Question about Olympus FE-360 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My FE-360 is not recognized now when I try to transfer my pics to PC. I even formatted the XD card, thinking that was the problem, but that did not work. I can upload the pics from the card in another Olympus camera, so, I'm thinking it could be the camera.

    Have you considered NOT connecting the camera to the computer?

    The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

    Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Having received no response in over four months, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader solved the problem.

I have a fe-200 olympus camera, after i transferred the images, the memory card say write protect, the memory card has no switch on the side, and now i cant take any pictures happened to both of my memory...


Your camera uses xD memory cards, and they never have a physical locking switch.

Your problem is most likely due to having used the xD card in an external card reader. The host pc sometimes sets the xD card as a "read only" drive. If so you must go back to the host pc and connect the xD card again. If using Windows then click on My Computer and highlight the xD card. Right click and select Properties from the device menu. Uncheck the box marked Read Only.

If that's not the cause of your problem then try re-formatting the card in your camera. NEVER re-format it using a computer.

If those options both fail, try another xD card which is known to be fully functional in your camera. This will determine whether the camera or the card is at fault. The camera is too old to merit the cost of a professional repair, and there's nothing more to be done with a faulty xD card, so replace whichever item is faulty.

You may also wish to consult the user manual for your model which you can download for free from Olympus in .pdf format.

I hope that I've been of assistance, please take a moment to rate my speedy and free answer.

Yesterday I transferred all my pics from the xd picture card to my computer, nad now I keep getting write error message when I take a pic. The manual says that the card is write protected! How did this...


I don't think the XD card has a lock switch (some do) but what I fully expect is that the memory card requires your to format it to the camera you are using it in. You didn't tell me what camera make or model But you did say you have a manual, look for formatting or it may be called initialize. Formatting clean the surface of the memory card and makes it ready to accept new pictures again.

AST135-US3303 has reader for XD, SD, etc but will not recognize my SD card when inserted. The light beside the card comes on but no window appears (XP home)and I cannot get to my data. Card works in...


Quick test for you if you insert the card and you can send a file from you computer say any document and it transfers across and read it back the card and the reader are ok. It will be the file type of the pictures that it at fault most cameras memory cards are of a Raw format and some OS's dont like it. Try a blank SD card if you have one, format it on the computer then insert in camera and see if after you take a few pic you can see the file.

Try to use the usb cord that came with the camera to transfer photos over. Don't forget to install the driver for your camera.

The 2nd link is the manual in .pdf form, and there should be a usb cable that came with your camera and if you lost the cd-rom then you can download drivers for free from the olympus support site (1st link).

Good luck on retrieving your pictures.

Olympus xd card formatting problems.


If you like the camera and XD cards then I would use the USB cable to download the photos from the camera. When you plug the USB cale into the camera and then into the computer, the computer should recognize the camera and set it up as another disk drive. Copy or move the pictures from the card to your Photo location. Use the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the system tray to disconnect the camera and your done. The camera can format the XD card and the computer can read it through the camera.

Clean or format card error on Olympus XD card


There are most likely some "corrupted" images on your xD card. Very often a card reader "writes" data to the card while transferring or copying images into the computer. When you re-insert the card back into the camera, it doesn't recognize the new data (because it didn't create it), and gives the error, usually requiring a complete formatting be performed. There are also problems if you use a reader to rotate images, then re-install the card in the camera. The best way to accomplish what you were doing is to transfer the images into a folder on your computer, as the camera shot them (don't rotate them first). That way, you haven't altered any data on the card. For now, however, I suggest you format the card in the camera, so you can start with a "clean slate". Good luck.

Is it possible to recover my formatted pictures on my XD card


Deleting or formatting won't make the data in xd card erased permanently.

Those deleted data is still stored on the xd card, it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of xd card .

So as long as those data are not overwritten by new data, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.

Try asoftech data recovery program, which can recover data after deeply scanning your xd card drive to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted.

My Olympus FE-230 will not lock into picture taking mode. All other modes are operational.


Hi cwmathew.
If all the other functions are working such as the lens extends and it focuses, zoom works, Red Led stays lit ( not blinking )and you say all the menu functions are working, It's most likely,one of three things, one of which you can try to fix.

The memory may be corrupt in which case the cpu thinks the memory is full, Transfer all pics including your favorites to your photo program.
Format Xd card ,clean out your favorites( format) twice.
Remove battery ,charge it reinsert, and then go back in to setup and start all over like it's a new camera,Change date and all settings ,then reset them correctly.
Try taking a picture. if it works try again with the Xd card in just to eliminate that possibllity.
If it still wont work it's most likely one of two things,
The lens assembly is not fully extending even if it appears to be,
or the microprocessor is is thinking the lens is not ready to function. contact Olympus for a RMA if still under warranty.
If not check out the repair shops on this site, they will be more than happy to give you a repair quote,

If the repair quote exceeds 75% of buying a new camera,
Go shopping.
I hope it helps, you have a nice camera.
Regards and good luck, Paul
