Ruined Memory Card??

I have an Olympus stylus 300 digital camera, with an Olympus 128mb xd-Picture Card. My computer is an HP A620n model with a Smartmedia/Xd drive. After previously successful image transfers using a USB cable connected directly to my camera I wanted to try out my computer's Smartmedia/Xd drive. Ever since I put my memory card in the Smartmedia/Xd drive my camera says "Card Error!", when I tried to use it in the camera. I've tried to save files from my computer on the card to see if the card was still capable of this and was successful, but whenever the card is put back in camera I get the error. I've talked to both HP and Olympus and neither can help. Does anyone know what might have happened and if it's fixable?

Re: Ruined Memory Card??

No one can expend efforts to diagnose, repair or let alone talk to you about what may be a 25 to 30 dollar memory card. I've had dozens of such failures but I deal with a fleet of devices and these are spread over the world now. The card, if the camera will not format it is tossed and you get a new one. Whatever you plugged it into is marked as suspect and I'd not do that again.

I'm just trying to find out where to find a 512MB XD Picture Card for my Olympus D-395 camera


Although the XD picture memory card is one of the newest formats, it is still available at many department, office supply, and photo shops. Among these locations is WalMart (electronics dept.) and Staples Office Supply. If you prefer to shop online you should have no problems finding the card at Ebay, Amazon.com, and Tiger Direct.

After taking about 15-20 pictures our camera shows card error message. We download the pics onto our computer and reformat as the camera says to do...but should the camera hold more pictures than that?


Hello,

It sounds like the card is damaged, it should take a lot more photos than that.

The C-50 takes an XD memory card. These are different sizes. For example a 256mb size will take hundreds of photographs.

The C-50 is quite old and there are now different types of XD cards. It might be best to get a 128mb XD card.

The Olympus website says:
---
Please contact Olympus authorized distributor or service center in your region for the information about
using xD-Picture Card 512MB, 1GB or 2GB
---
I hope this helps.

Cant get anything when i installed the memory card for my olympus


If this is a C-700 camera the only memory card that can be used in that camera is a Smartmedia card from 16mb to 128mb. An xD card is not even supported by that camera at all.

Olympus 300 digital stylus


Hi Bonnie, don't know what problems you are having as you havent specified, but i do know that if you use a memory card higher than 512mb, it will appear as though it is not working! 512mb xd card is the highest you can use for this camera, you can also use a fuji memory card, hope this helps! Check the memory card! :)

Olympus Stylus 750 Digital: Card error..cannot view pics or copy/download


its the card not the camera.
i think you fingers have come into contact with the gold bits on the xd card.
try wipping the card and putting it in several times,if all fails buy your self an olympus 1gb xd card H TYPE.

the best compact of all time was the Olympus C-70 Zoom Camera which can be found 2nd hand over ebay.
