I have a Fuji S2 and am using a Micro Drive 1gb card. It is an IBM- Hitachi. Anyway I have 2 images on this card that will not erase. When I play them back the hour glass on the screen runs and runs, will not quit. This is the hour glass on the back screen that indicates how long it will take the image to load. I have checked and rechecked the security status. It is not on. There are no protected images. I can take more images and they erase just fine. It's just these 2 that I can't get rid of. Is it the Camera or the Card??? I somehow think it might be the card due the fact that other images taken will erase. Tell me what you guys & gals think please. Thanks

hi, the memory card you are using is to small for the camera it has not got enough memory on it you need to get at least a 1gb memory card or 2gb memory this will then allow you to take between 500 and 1000 pictures the 16mb card you have in is not worth using it will only hold a couple of pictures so go to the well known auction site and buy a 2gb memory card of the same type such as sd card or micro sd or mini sd it should tell you on the 16mb card what type it is then just buy the same type but with either 1gb or 2gb or even 4gb of memory this will then let you take 1000s of pictures
the 16mb card is no good in your camera get a bigger card and your problem will be solved
let me know if you have any problems with the new card ok
First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.
Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer. Download this photo recovery software http://www.asoftech.com/apr/ Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.
There is a limitation with this camera and the size of memory cards it can handle. Larger cards than 1GB, are not recognized properly. You can however use larger cards if you format the card in the camera using the USB cable connected to your PC. Just connect the camera to your PC. In windows explorer select the camera drive, right-click and select "format". I have used this to get a 2GB card working with my 603. Beware that files larger than 1GB can not be stored on the card. I once had been recording a video at concert for about 30 minutes with the 2GB card installed (the camera got really hot during this shooting!). When hitting the record button again to save this giant clip, I got an error message "write error" I was a sad puppy that night.
You can add memory to your camera by purchasing an xd memory card.
xD-Picture Card (16MB – 1GB)
There are two ways to record the pictures you take with this camera.
Recording pictures to the internal memory
• Pictures are recorded to the internal memory, and when the number of storable still
pictures reaches 0, you must connect the camera to a computer to download the
pictures, and then erase the pictures from the internal memory.
Using an xD-Picture Card (optional)
• Pictures are recorded to the card when inserted in the camera. When the card is
full, you download the pictures to a computer, and then either erase the pictures
from the card or use a new card.
• Pictures are not recorded to the internal memory when a card is inserted in the
camera. Pictures in the internal memory can be copied to the card using the
g“BACKUP Copying pictures in the internal memory to the card” (P.25)
“The card” (P.60)
Number of storable still pictures and recording length of movies
• If you use a non-Olympus card or a card used for another application, such as for
a computer, the message [CARD ERROR] is displayed. To use this card with this
camera, use the [FORMAT] function to format the card.
g“MEMORY FORMAT (FORMAT) Formatting the internal memory/card” (P.24)
