XD Card Formatting

I have recently bought a Fugifilm M 2GB xD card for an Olympus FE-170 camera. While the card has saved images, I understand now that I should have formatted it before use. Is there anyway round downloading my photos from the card to my pc?

Thanking you in advance of any advice!

Hi-

Yes there is, you can either use a multi card reader in which you will attach to your pc, or connect your cam to pc and loading the softwares for your olympus camera.

Hope this helps

I have a fe-200 olympus camera, after i transferred the images, the memory card say write protect, the memory card has no switch on the side, and now i cant take any pictures happened to both of my memory...


Your camera uses xD memory cards, and they never have a physical locking switch.

Your problem is most likely due to having used the xD card in an external card reader. The host pc sometimes sets the xD card as a "read only" drive. If so you must go back to the host pc and connect the xD card again. If using Windows then click on My Computer and highlight the xD card. Right click and select Properties from the device menu. Uncheck the box marked Read Only.

If that's not the cause of your problem then try re-formatting the card in your camera. NEVER re-format it using a computer.

If those options both fail, try another xD card which is known to be fully functional in your camera. This will determine whether the camera or the card is at fault. The camera is too old to merit the cost of a professional repair, and there's nothing more to be done with a faulty xD card, so replace whichever item is faulty.

You may also wish to consult the user manual for your model which you can download for free from Olympus in .pdf format.

I hope that I've been of assistance, please take a moment to rate my speedy and free answer.

Yes, you can use the XD M+2GB card in your camera. The M+ card is a faster one. The following website gives you more on it.
http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_xd.asp

"The Type M+ xD-Picture card is compatible with the Type M card in all cameras and is 1.5 times faster than the Type M card. The increase in speed may be useful in sequential shooting of digital stills and in the recording of high-density video with Olympus cameras."

Good luck.

I HAVE AN OLYMPUS MASTER (FE-190 )AND I HAVE LOST SERIAL NUMBER


I looked up the FE-190 and it says it uses XD Memory Cards not discs. Several companys make a card reader that plug into the USB connector
on computers. 2 are Targus and Lexar. You could probable find an XD card reader at Walmart or Radio Shack. The XD memory card will then show up
on your computer screen as a regular folder that contains JPG files, which are the pictures.

Olympus xd card formatting problems.


If you like the camera and XD cards then I would use the USB cable to download the photos from the camera. When you plug the USB cale into the camera and then into the computer, the computer should recognize the camera and set it up as another disk drive. Copy or move the pictures from the card to your Photo location. Use the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the system tray to disconnect the camera and your done. The camera can format the XD card and the computer can read it through the camera.

Saved images


The internal memory and the xD Picture Card cannot be used at the same time. When the card is inserted the internal memory is disabled. When you want to use the internal memory, remove the xD Picture Card. The LCD display will indicate that images are saved to internal memory by displaying [IN] in the lower right corner of the screen. When using the xD Picture Card the camera’s LCD will display [xD] in the lower right corner of the screen. These indicators are displayed just above the number of available frames.
