Question about Olympus Stylus 5010 Digital Camera

1 Answer

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: The instructions say to use SD/SDHC memory cards - crasher35.jpeg

Compared to the xD card: crasher35_17.jpg

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

My SD600 states memory card full when I use the original SD 16M card. There are 6 pictures on it and will not take more. What settings should I use to correct that issue?


The original card that came with your camera was very low capacity. As you've discovered, it can only hold a few pictures, and was only included with the camera to show that the camera works. You really should purchase a new SD memory card. These are very inexpensive (here's some from Amazon) and will literally hold hundreds of pictures. BUT make sure that you purchase a 2GB or small SD card, and NOT a 4GB or larger SDHC card. Newer SDHC cards were designed after your camera, and although they look exactly the same, they will not work with your camera.

My camera gets easily full though i've just taken only one or two pictures. What should i do? Please help me solve this problem. I badly need my camera now as I am documenting for my thesis. Thanks much.


Sounds like you may not have a SD memory card in your camera (or have been using a 4GB SDHC card), and your images are being saved to the camera's very limited "built-in" memory. What size SD memory card are you using. If there is none (or if you're using a 4GB SDHC), recommend purchasing a standard SD card no larger than 2GB files size for your model camera (think of it as the camera's reusable film).
Note that 4GB and higher SDHC cards will not work with your camera as it was manufactured before SDHC format came out (this also could be causing the camera to default to built-in memory). Again, the maximum SD card size that your camera can use is 2GB. These can still be purchased, and are relatively inexpensive on Amazon.

My hp officejet 7210 all in one will not read my SDHC memory card for my new Panasonic camera. Why? Should I purchase just a SD memory card? Will that work?? Thanks


Purchasing an SD card might be better. Just for the fact that when your printer was manufactured the technology for SDHC cards were still not incorporated in your printer.

2 problems: 1: The 16GB memory card reads "invalid card" and 2: how do I install the 2GB XD picture card. It doesn't fit in the memory card slot. So confused


Let's dismiss the second one first: the xD-Picture Card format is now obselete; your camera was announced just as Olympus was quietly removing it from their cameras, and its specification makes no mention of an xD-Picture Card slot. It's possible that for marketing reasons they included one, but as it's not in the specification I have to assume that it's not there.

For the first problem, there are two answers depending on whether it is the Camera or the Computer which says "invalid card".

This answer applies if the camera says "Invalid Card". Assuming that your 16Gb memory card is a SDHC card, it should indeed be compatible with your camera; your next step should be to try formatting it in the camera to see if it accepts it. It is preferable to format the card in the camera rather than a computer, to ensure that the right filesystem is used. The format command will be in Menu/Settings but probably near the bottom; they don't want people formatting cards by accident.

This answer applies if the computer says "Invalid Card". The most likely solution if your camera can read the card but the computer can't, is that your card reader is not compatible with SDHC cards, but only SD cards. Look for the "SDHC" logo/legend on the reader, and if you don't find it, purchase one that does have it. SD and SDHC cards are physically the same, but SDHC provides High Capacity by extended addressing.

4GB "SD" cards are almost always actually SDHC (high capacity) cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

So your camera is not able to use the 4GB card, and is ignoring it and using internal memory only. That memory is tiny and won't hold many pictures, and when it is full, the camera cannot work at all. You need to delete the pics in the internal memory and get a memory card your camera can understand (2GB or less).

How do I add pictures onto my computer with the Olympus u tough 3005? I have tried taking the memory card and putting it into this little slot in my printer for digital camera memory cards, and usually...


The cause of this is probably an incompatibility between your memory card and the card reader in your printer. Your camera is fairly new, and you probably have a memory card of 4Gb or more, which is going to be SDHC. Your printer is probably older, and is only compatible with SD (generally cards up to 2Gb).

Your solution is to use only SD cards, which essentially means limiting yourself to 2Gb, or buying a card reader which can support SDHC. I don't know what country you're in, but I bought a SDHC card reader in a dollar store for $2.00 which is half the price of a large latte.

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

Here's the specs for your camera from Canon. Sorry, but an SDHC card is not listed as compatible with your camera. Only SD or MMC. Now look on your 16 and 32GB cards. You'll see SDHC stamped there. Although SDHC looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the cards use are very different. Unfortunately your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out.
You'll need to instead purchase a standard SD card (those that are 2GB or less). Fortunately these are very inexpensive these days, with 2GB cards going for around $6 with shipping.

Need to know what memory card can i purchase and where for kodak easy share c530 my camera is old haven't used much I have a 1.0gb sandisk can i use a 2gb sandisk.


I had a look and it seems 1GB is about the Maximum? yes Sandisk is a good brand. Frankly anything that works well is OK.
Buy a good brand of card ... SanDisk is my favorite.
Kodak would certainly be a good choice too.
Don't buy it on eBay, as there are too many counterfeit cards available on eBay.

A Tip:
If you use a card reader, you will need a SDHC card reader if you use a SDHC card.
Most older card readers can not read a SDHC card.

Tip number 2:
Always format a new card with the Camera before taking any pictures.
You will find how to format with the camera in the camera User Manual.

Sorry for the extreme delay in answering your question: I've been trawling for old unanswered questions today and yours came up. The following answer will undoubtedly be way too late to be of use to you, but may assist others searching FixYa for an answer to the same problem.

You have been mistaking SD cards for SDHC cards. They look the same but are different, and your camera cannot use SDHC cards as it was designed before they existed. The limitation is due to the hardware in your camera so it cannot be updated to SDHC standards.

Your 2GB card was definitely an SD card as SDHC cards have a minimum capacity of 4GB, and 2GB SD cards are the maximum capacity which your camera can handle. Your only fix is to either stick to 2GB maximum capacity SD cards or to replace the camera with one which is SDHC compatible.
