Question about Olympus Cameras

When I open the shutter on my Olympus Camedia C-150 it says Card setup. Power Off or Format are the only options. Why can't I get my photos and can this be fixed???

    I had already tried removing the battery and the memory card. Formatting is not an option as it will erase all of the photos.

    There may be a fault with the memory card.



    You should download what there is on there before anything else. Using USB or whatever you normaly use. Failing that, shops that print photo's will take the card if you usually do this option.



    If you cannot recover any of the photo's - try this program -

    After this, try the reformating option.



    If this fails, the memory card is probably defective, and you should replace it.

Thanks. I took the card to a camera shop and they recovered some, but not all, of the photos. Card was corrupted.

Re: Olympus Camedia D-560 Digital Camera When I


Try 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 any photo cataloging program.

Need to permanently delete thumbnails from camera card.


Sounds like you may want to permanently format the memory card while in the camera. This will remove all data that has been written to the card. Have your camera in shooting mode, go to menu and then down to Card tab or setup option and then go to Card Setup or Format option. Highlight Yes and press Ok. This will permanently delete all data from the memory card and you will not see the older images and will only see the newest ones from now on.

Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the picture error message and the cards can be used again.
