Welcome to FixYa.

I have seen several question with the same issues on your camera. There where 3 possible reasons why do you received an error "clean or format card". First reason is your card was not formatted for the camera used. You need to format it first for you to be able to used the memory card. Second reason is memory card slot or the memory card itself requires cleaning. Yu can used soft and dry cloth to cleaned it, sometimes pencil eraser or any eraser can be used to clean the memory card, but you have to be careful in using it on your memory card. After you clean it, you also need to format the memory card. Third possible reason is memory card might need to replace.

Notes: All existing data, including protected pictures, are erased when internalmemory or card is formatted. Make sure that you save or transfer important data to a computer before formatting the memory or card.
Make sure that there is no card inserted in the camera when formatting the Internal Memory.
be sure that the card is inserted when formatting the Memory card.

Make sure that you have a fully charged battery or used the AC adapter.

I hope this information can help you.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Trying to find a plug for charging my camera and disk to download to my new computer my crashed and cant find and the cord i lost on my trip i have a olympus stylus 1010 10.1megapixel how can i buy...


Consider 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. Even if you have to buy a card reader, it won't cost you any more than a new USB cord.

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, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Hook the camera up to the pc and error states disc needs to be formatted. I do not want to lose pictures how do i correct


if you have the pictures on the camera(memory card)
try to transfer pictures first using a cardreader. after you transfer all pictures to your computer you can now try to format the memorycard and try it again.

note: it will not work if the memorycard you're using was formatted on a computer before with a fat system and you are now trying to have it read on a computer on an ntfs system.

Olympus stylus 1010 can i delete all pics at once?


Yes, by formatting the card. In fact, you should format the card each time you finish downloading your pics to your computer. This will prevent future problems with the card.

You'll find "Memory Format" at the top of the Setup menu.

My camera says that the card is full, so i cant take pictures, yet i just deleted all the pictures that was stored on the memory card, what am I supposed to do?


If you used your computer to delete the pics, your camera doesn't recognize this action and sees the card as full. Format the card in the camera to get back to square one.

Date in my Olympus Stylus 1010 camera not showing on pictures


It doesn't get printed on the pictures. The info is stored along with the picture and is called metadata. This info can be retrieved with most photo editing programs.

Clean or format card error on Olympus XD card


There are most likely some "corrupted" images on your xD card. Very often a card reader "writes" data to the card while transferring or copying images into the computer. When you re-insert the card back into the camera, it doesn't recognize the new data (because it didn't create it), and gives the error, usually requiring a complete formatting be performed. There are also problems if you use a reader to rotate images, then re-install the card in the camera. The best way to accomplish what you were doing is to transfer the images into a folder on your computer, as the camera shot them (don't rotate them first). That way, you haven't altered any data on the card. For now, however, I suggest you format the card in the camera, so you can start with a "clean slate". Good luck.

I have an olympus stylus 1010 and know how to delete pics individually, but how can i do an automatic delete of all pics on my camera? thanks!


If you have the user manual you can refer to page 33 where it talks about the All Erase function. Or you can just format the memory card which is a permanent deletion of all of the images that have been written to the memory card.

We have a new olympus camera 1010 and cannot get the camera to use the card to store photos it only wants t use the internal memery help!!


This camera takes 16MB -2GB cards. When you insert the card, make sure that it is formatted. Usually when you insert a new card or one that was formatted for a different camera (or a PC), the Olympus 1010 will ask you to either "Clean card" or "format".

Once you have it formatted, the camera automatically defaults to storing pictures on the card. When the card is removed it will start storing back to the internal memory.

You should see an small icon on the bottom right of the camera windows display when you are taking pictures as shown on page 63 of the manual. When the xD card is installed, you should not see this icon.

If you have a faulty xD card or one that is unrecognizable, you should see error messages like those on page 57 of the same manual.

You can always go to the MENU button and click the RESET button to restore the factory default setting. Make sure you remove the xD memory card before resetting your camera. Take one or two pictures without the card and then insert the card and see if the pictures are stored in the xD card now.
