Question about Olympus Camedia C-350 Digital Camera
I was wondering if anyone of you could help me with the following:-
clean or format card error on Olympus XD card
The above started on an Olympus camera stylus 850 SW using a 2 Gb Olympus card. I was viewing the pictures from my card on my pc using a card reader. I was able to see the pictures and whilst the pictures were being transferred to the memory, I was trying to rotate some of the pictures already appeared.
Whilst the pics were being rotated, the process seem to freeze my pc and therefore was oblige to reboot my system.
After that I was not able to see the card from the card reader. Therefore inserted the card in the camera instead and now getting the following message :clean or format card error.
Any help would be graetly appreciated.
Google "Pc inspector smart recovery" and they can recover the files for you, Mine is still in progress so I wont know how much of it is being recovered properly.

I tried solution #1 using PC inspector Smart Recover. Worked flawlessly. recovered every single picture on the guard, which is DAMN lucky because they were my college grad pics.

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.
