    As you have probably discovered, this is an issue with the card. If you use a different card the camera will work properly.

    My issue is 'Can the pictures on the card that is erroring be save?'

This is a problem with the card you are using. If you use a different card the camera should work properly. Unfortunately I have not figured out a way yet to save the pictures on the card that is erroring.

How to delete all photos on Olympus camera memory disk while in camera

Erasing data completely [MEMORY FOTMAT] / [FORMAT]
In the settings menu you find Memory format / format choose that and confirm.
BUT!!!! before you format, check if no important data is on the card.
When you format the internal memory, your instruction manual (if still there) will be deleted, so first make a backup of that.
All new cards (or cards you use for the first time in the camera, should be formatted.
You could check the manual for more details.

When I turn on my olympus sp-500uz it often goes straight to card setup when i turn it on. I often lose the pictures that I have on the card because I have no choice but "POWER OFF" or "FORMAT" and when I...

I'm afraid you have a bad memory card. Would be better to buy a new one. see it as an extra. They are not that expensive today.
And if your camera tells you to format, first switch off the camera. Then remove the card and try to read the pictures to your computer first. There are programs can recover pictures, your camera can't show.
see these links if you don't already have recover software. with free trail with free evaluation version
Take care you never remove the card before switching off the camera complete and wait till no light is on or blinking.
When you switch of the camera it could be it has to access the memory card, to write the last info it still had in its internal memory. they is when a light goes on or blinks. If you then remove the card or the battery, your file structure can be damaged very easy.
Most camera's show a light when the camera is accessing the memory.

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.

Trying to download photos from computer card reader. An error occured. Put card back in camera, switch on power and camera goes to card setup screen, alaem sounds and the choices are power off or format....

It sounds like you already know better than to reformat the card whether on the camera on on the computer, for you will for sure loose all the pictures. A couple of steps you can try;
- try another card
- try using the cable that came with the camera to connect the camera to the computer, this will at least enable you to get those pictures saved before loosing them
- try a different card reader, while they do seem fairly simple I've encountered some work for some cards better than others. it can be a cheap one, just another one.
- make sure your battery is fully charged and that the camera was stored in a dry place (humidity has been known to start wreaking havoc in the internal workings of a digital camera, even the humidity from a warm closet/garage)
- if all else fails, contact Teleplan Camera Repair they will be able to assist and repair.

Format the SD card

You can format the SD card using the camera menu. Hit your menu button. Go to the setup menu with the up and down arrows. Find the Format menu. There are 3 choices, Format the card, Format the internal memory, or exit. Choose Format the card. Let me know if you need more help.
