Got new olympus memory card, keeps saying card error


Is the memory card the correct capacity? Is it too "big"? ie is it say a 8 gig and maybe your camera only supports 4 gig? I had that problem with my camera-I had bought a memory card which was too high in capacity for it. Check your user manual for the cards and capacity you can use.

New xd picture card compatability with olympus d-395


Check the maximum capacity memory card that your older camera will take. My Fuji will only take up to a 2gig card unless I flash the firmware in the camera to take the newer 4gig cards. Some of the older cameras maxed out at 1 gig or less. Check eBay for smaller capacity cards as they are getting hard to find in stores.

Olympus c-730, does it support xD-Picture cards greater than 128M


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.

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 card is not compatible. The camera came out long before these cards were in existence and therefore the firmware in the camera cannot support storage that large.

Can I use a 1 gig memory card in a C 3020 Olympus camera? If not, what is max ....256MB?, 512MB ? Pls advise


The only type of memory card that can be used with this camera is a smartmedia card. The max size for smartmedia is only 128mb. There is no way to adapt the camera to accept anything larger at this time due to the age of the camera.

When I install a new Olympus XD 1 gig memory card in my Olympus Camedia C-50 camera it says card error with an exclamation point.


The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is a 256mb card without the letters M or H in front of 256mb. The 1gb card is not compatible.

There is a link on the Olympus website page that allows you to send the camera in to one of the service centers to have the firmware in the camera upgraded to accept that larger memory card.

XD Picture Memory Cards


What is the advantage of a 1 gig over two 512meg cards: Usually the 1 gig will be priced lower than 2 512 cards. The 1 gig card will hold twice as many photos. That is about it. .................... Brand name has turned out to be a non-issue for almost all memory cards. They have to be made to a standard and they will all work. Olympus and Fujifilm came up with the xD card. And Sandisk is a trusted card maker. I believe that Olympus may have a stitch feature that is only available if you use the Olympus brand of card. A gimmick to sell more of their brand of cards. This is pretty much of a non issue too, as there are plenty of software programs that can do stitching for panorama photos.
