Question about Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera

2 Answers

Memory card compatibility

I would like to upgrade memory on my C5050. I fancy Compact Flash memory cards of 1,2 and 4 GB. However, I was told that I have to check compatibility of such cards. Olympus tech support says that I should check compatibility issue with manufacturer of specific card. Contacting competent people of memory manufacturers seems to be extremely difficult. Would anyone else have some experience with this?

For what it's worth, I know it's not advised to use cards higher than 512kb in an Olympus E-10. I don't know if Olympus have used the same 'card' technology in both cameras, though.

Can't be much help on this one I'm afraid. I too have a C5050 and have numerous cards the largest of which is 512MB. I wouldn't like to use anything bigger than this just in case the card fails. I don't like having all my eggs in one basket. I quite often change cards on a shoot well before they are full also for the same reason. . Not so expensive to replace as well when they do go wrong. I also have an XD card loaded at the same time and swap between the two frequently That said to date I haven't had a CF or XD card fail on me as yet, but theres always a first time. I've also never had any problems with the C5050 recognising any CF cards of any type up to 512MB in size and cannot see any reason why they would fail to use a 1GB or above.

I bought a 2 gb compact flash card. Are these not


It appears that the 9700 works with Type II CFD's.

I think that the 2 Gb cards are ULTRA II's which likely will not work with your 9700. The 512's are getting harder to find as well...

I have Sandisk Extreme III 4GB memory card why after i shooting photo the file is cannot read?


Make sure your camera is compatible with a 4GB flash card. Some only take 1 or 2 GB cards. If that isn't the issue, format your card inside the camera with the camera's format utility.

Using bigger than 64 MB compact Flash Cards


I have the same machine and if you watch the dvd included with the machine it says to use a MC no bigger than 1 gb. I use a 512mb and it works fine. Your computer may not have a MC port so you will have to purchase a memory card reader which you can purchase on ebay or at Fry's for around 10 dollars. All the files need to be saved on the MC card as a SEW or JEF file. When you go to your machine touch the emb. key then the disc key and you should see your files. You may also need to turn the page; sometimes it save it on different pages.

New memory card and the camera says its full


try doing a format with the camera. check your manual to see how to do this with your camera. Beware, formatting will erase anything on the card. i actually had the same problem with my camera, and this worked for me. Sometimes new flash cards are not compatible off the shelf--they need to be formatted. You should have at least flash cards to be sure card is not defective. Let me know if this helps!

Updates for the PCMCIA and Compact Flash Card controllers


Some MobilePro units have exhibited the following symptoms when using Compact Flash Cards or ATA PCMCIA Memory Cards: 1. Storage Card folder is not displayed when you insert a PCMCIA ATA card and/or a Compact Flash card. 2. Warning message "Unidentified PC Card Adapter". 3. Warning message "Storage Card Warning" displayed. To fix these issues: If you have a MobilePro 750C without a ROM upgrade, download the file MP75Pcm.exe from support.necsam.com. For a MobilePro 750C with upgraded ROM, use the file MP75RPcm.exe. After the files are extracted, follow the instructions in the Readme.txt file.
