Question about Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera

2 Answers

256mb Card I have a Camedia Digital Camera C-5050 ZOOM. I have 3 xD cards for it, a 32mb, a 256mb and a 2gb card. The first two work with out any problems, but when i use the 2gb and it asks me to format it I keep getting a message that says there is a card error. This seems to happen with any card size higher than 256mb. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    I have the same problem with the same camera, I just bought a 2GB xD card assuming it would work the same but it keeps asking me to format it. I try to format it and it just says 'Card Error". Very frustrating.

Check in the user book for compatible cards. Not all cards are compatible with all cameras. You can also call the manufacture tech support to confirm card compatibity, and to confirm the maximum size card your camera can handle.

Difficulties on finding a 32MB picture card for my c -310 zoom


this is an old camera which uses xd picture card format. latest format in use is sd. hence, production of chips and cameras with xd stopped years ago, and a new xd may be avaialble online, but at a very stee price. Approx $25 per peice (similar sd costs $4 per piece)

After taking about 15-20 pictures our camera shows card error message. We download the pics onto our computer and reformat as the camera says to do...but should the camera hold more pictures than that?


Hello,

It sounds like the card is damaged, it should take a lot more photos than that.

The C-50 takes an XD memory card. These are different sizes. For example a 256mb size will take hundreds of photographs.

The C-50 is quite old and there are now different types of XD cards. It might be best to get a 128mb XD card.

The Olympus website says:
---
Please contact Olympus authorized distributor or service center in your region for the information about
using xD-Picture Card 512MB, 1GB or 2GB
---
I hope this helps.

DEAR SIR, I HAVE C-150 WITH 16MB CARD. I WOULD LIKE TO UPGRADE THE MEMORY CARD. WHAT IS THE LIMIT AND WHICH CARD SHULD I PURCHASE IF SO.


The manual recommends "no more than 256mb"

>> Memory : xD-Picture Card (16 – 256MB)

Here's the manual (free download)
http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/OLYMPUS/C-150-_E

Whilst Olympus made the xD card in sizes up to 2GB, the very large cards are not worth risking on three counts:
(1) Manual recommends max of 256MB (Although that might just have been the limit of production, when this camera was issued).
(2) Generally, multiple smaller cards give you more flexibility than one bit card (and they attract less of a premium).
(3) A 2GB card, if it worked, would store an infeasibly large amount of pictures on one card - it would be very hard to sort them, and you really would have "all your eggs in one basket" - remember that card, like any other magnetic media, can fail, especially over time.

So 256MB is plenty, and its an xD card (Distinguishable by its curved profile along one on the long sides).

Hope this helps.

Will the Olympus Camedia C-350 zoom take a 2 GB xD card?


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.

How to format new xD card for Olympus D-390 when I press OK to Format- I get blue Card Error!


The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is a 256mb card without the letter M or H in front of the 256. The 1gb or 2gb cards are not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support storage that large. The cards came out long after the camera did.

XD memory card confusion


The xD-Picture Card (xD stands for "extreme digital.") is a flash memory card format developed and introduced to the market in July 2002 by Olympus and Fujifilm, and manufactured by the Toshiba Corporation. xD cards are in Olympus and Fujifilm digital cameras, and are available in a range of sizes, from 16 MB to 2 GB currently. A higher-performance xD card known as Type M came out in 2005, and uses Multi Level Cell (MLC) architecture.
An xD card is 20mm x 25mm x 1.78mm and weighs about 2.8 g, making it significantly smaller than the nearly matchbook-sized CF card and about half the size of the SD/MMC card. As far as size goes, it is much closer to miniSD or RS-MMC. The manufacturer listed write speeds for xD-Picture Cards are: for the 16 MB and 32 MB card, 1.3 MB/s and for the 64MB and higher cards, 3 MB/s. Both offer a minimum read speed of 5 MB/s. The xD Type M cards have a faster standard rate of 4.0MB/s for reading and 2.5MB/s for writing.
Anything up to 2gb will work with your camera, either the type M or the type M+ will be fine.

Olympus xd picture card


Hi,

I've found a 2Gb card that is accepted by Olympus.

Details Here

It's only £17, so seems a worthwhile investment. However, it may not be compatible with panorama shots. If you intend to use these, I'd stick with a 64Mb version. - Or carry two, as they don't exactly take up room.
