My memory is always full and i only took 5 pictures.


If this camera takes pictures at 7MB (resolution), and you only have 20 MB of internal memory, it will fill up really quickly. You'll want to check out getting "extra" memory, e.g. the xD Picture Card, for this camera, that is up to 2GB, to hold more pictures.

I have a MACbook and the olympus fe-340 will not upload pictures to iphoto. I need to know what program to download to be able to upload my pictures. PLease help!


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

When power is turned on the card setup screen pops up. The only 2 options are to power off or format. If I select format, the pictures will be erased if yes is selected.


Memory card seems imbalanced due to some reason and can only be corrected by formatting as advised in camera pop up.
Of course all picture files will be deleted if card is formatted. Try to put card in card reader and back up files in computer.

Olympus FE 230 -Not able to retrieve pictures, only format option


You may try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your Olympus camera, here are some for your options.

Photo Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Recovery for Mac

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

Fe-230


Download all your pics, then format the card using the camera menu. Formatting will erase all pics and clean your card.

Olympus fe-115 shutting off


check to see if the battery is loose. i had the same problem where my camera turns on and off, i went to radio shack and found out that the battery wasnt "pushed" in all the way. if you open the battery slot and the battery pops out then thats the problem. just push it in until it clicks.

hopefully this will solve your problem.

Olympus FE-210 Camera Problem


Well, I had same issue and call the crapus support and they told me to format it. That is solution they recommend. it happen to me three times already had a camera less than 2 month. Well time to sell crapus and get me a real camera, I had Nikon and Canon almost 8 years and never had issue with memory card. I was stupid to take chance on crapus, by the way if you are not using none olympus brand memory card you are out of luck, they do not support.

Thanks

Hi,

Yes and in several methods as below listed. Since your posting refers to a generic problem for all digital cameras and not only an Olympus FE-230, some of the settings may have a different nomenclature or button name.
1. When you download pictures to you PC, rather than copy, select move; or
2. If you want to erase one picture at a time from the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow down/up, you will be asked to erase the picture displayed, select yes/no by up/down, then press OK (menu button); or
3. If you want to erase all contents of the memory card of the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow right, down to select card, right to select card setup, right to enter card setup, arrow down to select format or erase all, OK. Erase all just erases the files, format erases all and re-initialize the memory card; or
4. Remove memory card from camera and insert into a memory card reader attached to USB of your PC. The memory from the camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.
5. Connect the camera via the supplied cable to any USB port of your PC. The camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.

Specifically for an Olympus FE-230:
1. Press the < or > buttons to display the picture you want to erase;
2. Press the trash can button (bottom right);
3. Press the UP button to select [YES], press OK;

or

To erase all:
1. Press the MENU button to display the top menu in playback mode;
2. Select [ERASE], [ALL ERASE], and press OK;
3. Select [YES], and press OK

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
