20 Most Recent Olympus Camedia D-395 Digital Camera Questions & Answers


You don't need to use Olympus batteries. The D-395 uses two standard AA batteries, either disposables or alkalines. You should be able to find AA batteries at just about any department store, drugstore, electronics store, office-supply store, or supermarket.

TruePic Turbo is the new engine designed to be approximately 30% faster than the TruePic engine. TruePic Turbo increases the camera's start-up, shutter lag, recording and playback time and continues to deliver clear, smooth image results every time. The TruePic Turbo engine also has an advanced noise filter for better image quality.

The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is a 512mb card without the letter M or H in front of the 2gb. The 1gb or 2gb cards are not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage with that capacity. The camera came out before those cards did and there are no plans to upgrade the camera to allow those types of cards to be supported.

The D-395 uses standard AA batteries. You should be able to find rechargeable AAs at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store. If you're in the US, you can't be too far from a Radio Shack store, for example.

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.

Try to take off battery for soft reset. When disconnected the usb camerafrom pc, follow the procedure like a external device, turn off the device and take off the connection.

Hi,

You can download pictures from your camera to your computer by using a memory card reader (You can use your computer's built-in memory card reader, if it has one, or you can purchase an external memory card reader as shown in the attached image).

To do this, kindly remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into a card reader. Connect the card reader to the USB port of your PC (if you are using an external card reader).

Now, the memory card will be shown as a "Removable disk" in "My Computer". You can browse the images and copy the images to your computer.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

Why does my camera say "Card Locked" or "Write Protected"?

In the same way that the recordings on audio cassettes and VHS tapes could be protected by breaking off the little tab on the back corner, the material on a memory card can be protected against being overwritten. Instead of a tab to break off, write protection is done by a tiny slider on the edge of the card (opposite the cut corner). Before the camera will take pictures, it's necessary that this slider on the card operates a microswitch in the camera, which it will only do if it's NOT in the 'lock' position.

The slider actually does nothing inside the card, which is why I don't call it a 'switch' even though it seems like one. Its only purpose is to be detected by the microswitch in the camera's slot, and it's the camera that takes care of the write protection, not the card.

If the camera is giving you this error, it means that the slider has failed to operate the microswitch, or that the microswitch itself is faulty.

The slider is really tiny, so I suspect that the number of people reporting this error is caused by lack of precision in manufacturing sizes. It must be hard to make a microswitch that can feel such a small thing. Obviously the first thing to do is to check that the slider is NOT in the lock position. After that I would try a different card (of a different brand) to see if small differences in thickness are the problem. Does a better brand of card work?

As a remedy of last resort, you could try wrapping a small strip of sticky tape over the slider to increase its thickness, but I would only do this if no cards work properly (implying that it's the camera at fault). If some cards work and some don't, it would be better to simply limit yourself to the good cards, as there's a risk that the tape will come off in the slot and cause even more problems.

The M+ card and the latest XD H cards are not compatible with your camera. It has to be an M card. Also some models I have found will not except a card bigger than 512mb or 1gb.

Check for a small slider on the memory card - it sounds like the card is set to "protect" mode, which means you can't write to it. Slide the little slider on the card, reinsert and try it again.

I had the exact same issue with the D-395.
I wiped off the battery contacts and the ends of a newly charged set of batteries to make sure they were clean. Also while the batteries were out, I opened and closed the lens barrier or sliding cover to try and drain any juice still in the camera. I put the batteries back in and slowly/gently slid open the lens cover. It turned on and works fine now.

No, it is saying that the hardware isn't being recognized which is done before any software applications run. The problem might be a dirty connection, static electricity on the motherboard, or a bad cable. Try:\

  1. turning the computer off by unplugging it after the OS shuts down, waiting about 30 seconds and staring it up fresh.
  2. Removing the cable and putting it back in.
  3. Blowing some canned air into the connection when the computer is turned off.
  4. Using a different USB port.
  5. Using a different USB cable.
Good luck!
