Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have an Olympus C-740 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera. I bought a new memory Card. This camera is new to me and this is the first memory card I have purchased. I do not have a manual for the camera. I am having a problem getting the camera to read the card. I insert the card, turn on camera & the window says "no picture". I changed the batteries also. I can get a oval ring which says "Info on the left, picture of cards at the top, "Mode Menu" on right, & bars at the bottom.It appears the "Mode Menu"is highlighted, so I Pressed the "OK" button & a new screen appears "card setup" inside a large box. If I press the arrow button for right I can get to a screen that says "Format , Yes or NO. I purchased a xD H256MB card for Olympus online. They said the card was compatible to the C-740 Camera. Please help me! Judy

Choose YES for the Format option. Allow it to finish. Should work fine then.
Possible defective card if does not work after full format. Do not use any "quick format" option.
First time must be FULL format.

Card Error


The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb or 2gb cards are not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage with that capacity. The camera came out before those cards did and there no plans to upgrade the camera to allow those types of cards to be supported.

Olympus xD-Picture Card "Card Error"


First things first - need to make sure that the card is making proper electrical contact with the camera. Have a look at the contacts at the edge of the card and make sure they are spotlessly clean - even a fingerprint may cause problems.

Also, make sure the contacts in the camera have nothing causing a contact problem, and see if this resolves the issue.

Regards, Andy

Card error


This is using the xD card? M or H? These cards may not be compatible as they use newer technology. Get the firmware upgrade and follow instructions to the T. Here is the instructions:

and here is the firmware link, go down to C-740 UZ and select english.

Card formatting problem


Hi, I think there are two possibilities, one may be your camera is defective or may be your memory card has a problem. so try onething format your card in your pc and then check it out with your camera if problem still remain it is possible that the camera has a problem. If so, go to olympus shop. good luck....

A non-Olympus brand xD-Picture Card


I do, it works fine but if you want to use the panorama function you have to have the olympus brand card.
