Question about Olympus Stylus 5010 Digital Camera

Open Question

Olympus u-5010. I cannot dowload my pictures. There is no program appearing on the comuter. The manual says: " Do not insert SD/SDHC memory cards before the camera set-up." I did not insert a memory card yet. " Do not format the internal memory until the camera setup is complete. Doing so will erase the camera instruction manual and the PC software (ib) data that are strored on the internal memory." I did not format the internal memory (not that I know of) However, I took pictures as soon as I bought the camera and I did not Set it Up (time and date, time zone and dislpay language). Now when I plug the usb cable in the computer, the camera charges but I cannot open any program to transfer my pictures on the comuter. I guess somehow I did erase the instruction manual and the PC software. The pictures ase stock in the camera... Is there anything I can do to retrieve my pictures? Can I dowload the instruction manual and the software?

SOURCE: trouble formatting card

Did you happen to write files to one of the cards from the computer, or delete files from the card through the computer before that happened? This problem has been known to happen in such cases. Remember to only *copy* files from the card to the computer using the card reader, and only delete files using the camera. Anyway, try turning off the camera, pulling and re-inserting the card. If it doesn't work - try it a few more times. If it still doesn't work and you've got nothing to lose, try deleting any files you may have written to the card using the computer, and then try again. But the fact that the new card didn't work as well might mean that it won't help. Good luck.

Hi!

According to the user manual - the maximum size of memory card it can support is up to 256MB only. However, many users claim that it can support up to 512MB.

SOURCE: 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.

Write protection


Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

The instructions say to use SD/SDHC memory cards only. I purchased an Olympus x-D picture card M+ 2GB. Is this a card I can use? I do not know what the difference is.


No, if the instructions say that it will only take a SD or SDHC card then that is what you must use. They are different shapes, with different contact layouts, and different formats. They are not compatible with each other unless the devices specifically supports it.
Here is what a typical SD card looks like: crasher35.jpeg

Compared to the xD card: crasher35_17.jpg

They generally will not fit in each other's slots.

My Lumix DMC ZS7 reads "insert sd card again" when I have a full sd card inserted. The sd card is "verbatim sdhc 4gb" any idea? Thanks in advance


SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

If your manual doesn't specifically mention SDHC cards or memory card size bigger than 2GB, then the camera almost certainly won't work with SDHC. My Lumix won't work with anything larger than 1GB SD.

The pictures are in the internal memory? If so you need to purchase a memory card for that camera and transfer the internal memory pictures to the memory card and then you will be able to download them to the computer. Your camera takes a SD or a SDHC memory card make sure it's unlocked and formatted to the camera the instructions for formatting are in your manual
Here is a diagram to makes sure the switch on the SD card is in the unlock position

When I turn my camera on it reads "pictures will be recorded to built in memory". I have an SD ultra II 4.GB memory card inserted which I know isn't full. How do I get my camera to save to memory...


A card that size is actually an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

I expect your camera just won't work with this kind of card. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity memory card a camera will use, as today's cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.

When i connect the camera to the computer, the pictures not showing up in the events or any other section. i want to store it on a flash drive and i cant get it store.


If the camera is recognized by your computer (as a Removeable USB device) and if you are using the Olympus [ib] software, the probable cause is Olympus [ib] software related. You can try to repair the created picture database using the Data Repair option in the camera menu (see the manual page 41).
An alternative is to use a SD / SDHC card to put your pictures on and transfer them using the card reader in the computer. It is also possible to transfer taken pictures from the cameras internal memory to a placed SD / SDHC card in the camera (see the manual page 41).

How do I use micro sd card in camera


What is the orange "card" bundled with my camera and how do I use it?
The “card," pictured below as packaged, is the MASD-1 card adapter.
masd-1_microsd_adapter.jpg
The MASD-1 accepts microSD and microSDHC media, giving owners the option to record to those cards or to xD-Picture Card media, which is Olympus’ preferred format.
To use microSD/SDHC media in the camera, simply insert the card into the adapter and then insert the adapter into the camera's memory card slot.
