Problem with memory (xd) card and camera

Hi, I have a 512 MB memory card and haven't got the cable that goes from the camera to the PC any more so I have loaded it direct into my laptop which has an xd port.
When I open the card files, my pictures come up 3 times and there are lots missing!
I have tried to save the photos that I could but now when I put the card back into the camera it says that there are no pictures.
This is despite the fact that when I put it back into the PC, it does show pictures.
I keep getting the error message that I can't write on the disk and that I should remove this protection on device/hardisk1/br6.
I don't know what this means!
Please help

    Thanks. I reformatted the memory card through the camera menu which has solved the problem and emptied my memory card but I wasn't able to retrieve the lost photos.

Look for a manual lock next to your XD memory card slot on your computer. Your computer may not have one but there are a few that do.

If there isn't one, go to My Computer, look for your memory card in the window. Move the mouse over to the memory card and select properties. Make sure that the read only box isn't filled in. If it is, click on it until it is empty.

Copy the contents of the memory card to your computer. Reinsert the memory card into your camera and reformat the memory card in your camera for the utilities option on your camera. If it doesn't reformat, there could be something wrong with the memory card.

    You could have a corrupted memory card or you might want to go to Olumpus' website and see if there is a firmware upgrade for your camera.

I BOUGHT A USED OLYMPUS D-395 CAMERA, WITH NO CARD . WHAT CARD DO I NEED


The camera takes a 3V xD Picture Card (3.3 V). The original one was 16 MB; the camera will support an xD card between 16 and 512 MB. Olympus will sell you a 256 MB card for $10 here: https://us.buyolympus.com/xd-picture-card-h256mb.html . Another site with the correct size xD Picture cards is http://www.memorysuppliers.com/olxdpiccar.html .

Details for the Olympus D-395 camera are available from Olympus under Archived Products. See http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_archived_product_details.asp?id=953 . Links to the manual and specs are on the site.

I hope this helps.

My new Kodak memory -XD picture card type M will not function


It's possible that your camera is not compatible with the new card.  The C-350 and D-560 will only accept cards up to 512 MB <URL:http://www.olympus.co.uk/consumer/208_1212.htm>.  You might want to check with Olympus anyway: there might be a firmware update or something.

Unfortunately, most shops only carry the bigger cards now, if they carry xD cards at all.  If you bought the card from Crucial, I would expect they would take it back if it's not compatible.

XD memory card confusion


The xD-Picture Card (xD stands for "extreme digital.") is a flash memory card format developed and introduced to the market in July 2002 by Olympus and Fujifilm, and manufactured by the Toshiba Corporation. xD cards are in Olympus and Fujifilm digital cameras, and are available in a range of sizes, from 16 MB to 2 GB currently. A higher-performance xD card known as Type M came out in 2005, and uses Multi Level Cell (MLC) architecture.
An xD card is 20mm x 25mm x 1.78mm and weighs about 2.8 g, making it significantly smaller than the nearly matchbook-sized CF card and about half the size of the SD/MMC card. As far as size goes, it is much closer to miniSD or RS-MMC. The manufacturer listed write speeds for xD-Picture Cards are: for the 16 MB and 32 MB card, 1.3 MB/s and for the 64MB and higher cards, 3 MB/s. Both offer a minimum read speed of 5 MB/s. The xD Type M cards have a faster standard rate of 4.0MB/s for reading and 2.5MB/s for writing.
Anything up to 2gb will work with your camera, either the type M or the type M+ will be fine.

It's not the camera - my Fuji xd memory card


Look for the FORMAT Disk routine.
Consult the owners manual to find out how to get there, would be the easiest way.
