SOURCE: CF Excessive Power

Nikons and Fujis keep the CF slot powered, and "poll" it every now and then to see if a card has been removed or inserted. So yes, a camera may drain batteries much faster with a CF card than it does with an XD. But if it really does do this, then someone at Fuji deserves to be on the street, looking for a new job. Polling a card every few seconds does not have to be a traumatic experience to the camera. A Nikon can sleep for months, and not show appreciable battery drain. After what I've seen in the horribly slow CF write times of the S3, and the large artificial difference in write times between CF and xD on that camera, I'd say someone (or several "someones") at Fuji is doing everything in their power to make CF look bad and steer people into xD.

SOURCE: CF card problem

A slightly similar experience in that a Memory Stick Duo inexplicably set itself to write protect. No matter what I did, I couldn't format it. I was forced to buy another card. If possible, test it with another card or two. If it happens with more than two or three cards, then I would suspect the camera.

SOURCE: Put compact flash card in and camera went dead.

Take out the cf and see if your camera turns back on without it. If it does, then you have a bad card...replace it.

SOURCE: retrieving deleted pictures from compact flash card

If you're runnng a Windows system, you can try an undelete program such as the following:

http://www.freewarefiles.com/Undelete-Plus_program_24002.html


Usually, when you delete pictures from a flash device, it just sets a tag at the beginning of each file name telling the compact flash file system that the files can be overwrote. The most important thing to do at this point is not take any more pictures or copy any files to the card. Try downloading and installing that program [it's free] and choosing your card as the drive to scan [if you use a card reader this will be easy, if you use a camera, it may not show the camera or card as a device in My Computer].

Go to the menu and format the card (as long as it's blank) formatting will erase all data from the card

Will an8gb compact flash card work in my finepix m603 camera


Your camera can't Please don't try to put any SD card in your camera. It will destroy the camera. You camera only accepts xD cards. It is a complete different card size and works different.
There are xD micro drives, but I would not buy them. it is a very small HD and are not made for years. So if you find one, it is likely it is defect.
But if you can find a 1 Gb xD card, you can put lots and lots of pictures on it.


The manual is still online

Fuji s2 will not except 8 gig compact card, but is fine with a 3 gig


With how old that camera is it's not able to recognize all 8GB of the memory card, it will recognize, at most, a 4GB card which means you need 4GB or smaller compact flash cards.

When you switch on the camera it states the compact flash card is full,-when actually its not


make sure you are using the recommended card by Olympus.
Try moving all existing files to a computer.
then reformat the card on the camera.
the camera will most likely be asking you if you want to reformat.
Reformatting the card will allow the camera to read the files from there on.

I bought a Lexar 8GB Compact Flash Card for the E-100RS


Check your manual to see if your camera is able to handle a card that large. Also, go to the manufacturer's website to check for firmware downloads.

What size compact flash card can i use in a olympues e500 can i use a 8GB CF card


You should be fine using an 8g card, but do however make sure it is a type I or II and although you asked about compact flash I might add that the XD M type cards are cheap BUT extremely slow so be careful what you go with. Where ever you get the card from check their return policy just in case there is an issue with it. Also might want to enusre your firmware is up to date before you try newer cards.

Olympus E10 pins bent on compact flash slot


That is correct. The camera should default and detect that a smartmedia card is now inserted to the camera and write the images to that card. As I stated earlier, the cards are independent of each other.

Hi,

your camera needs a compact flash card. However If I were you I would be conservative concerning the size of the card. Probably your camera can't deal with an 8GB card.

Search ebay for "compact flash 128" or "compact flash 64" you still find plenty of those. And they cost nothing.

Cheers

I just bought a 1GB compact flash card and I was really amazed how fast they are. Lexar has them with 80x speed.
