You may use any SD card up to 2GB in size. Make sure you don't try larger SDHC cards, as they won't work.

You don't need any software.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

Make sure you're using an SD card, 2GB or smaller. Larger SDHC cards will fit into the slot but are electronically incompatible.

No. The Optio 50 works only with SD cards.

The display being white can be due to failure of the LCD or the CCD which is the optical sensor of the camera. So to confirm check the older picture to be seen on the display. Confirm this by checking the card on your PC. If the display is not seen, then the LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board.
However if the older images are seen well then the LCD is working correctly and the fault can be failure of the CCD- charge coupled device in the camera. If you have accidently exposed the camera directly to high intensity light / sunlight, then it is possible that it is damaged. Remove the battery and keep the phone aside to reset and try as a last resort. Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.

If you can get into the menu system, find "reset" in the set-up menu. If not, remove the card and battery...press every button....leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.....this is called a "hard reset" and sometimes works.
