Reducing image size

You can change the record mode in the camera to shoot at a lower image size of 640X480 by changing from HQ to SQ mode. Page 72 of the instruction manual explains how to change the record mode setting. You can also use photo editing software to reduce the image size down to 640X480 which is equivalent to the size of a 3X5 photo.

Pics appear on camera screen but not on card

If you can review the photos on the card while it is still in the camera (and by review, I mean go back and forth between multiple photos on the card), then there are two possibilities: 1. The photos really are on the card, and your computer can't read the card. 2. The photos really AREN'T on the card, and are perhaps in internal memory on the camera instead. Some thoughts for things to try: 1. Put the card in the camera, take a few photos, make sure you can review them all on the camera. Take the card out. NOW try reviewing photos on the camera with NO card in. What happens? 2. Try putting the card in your card reader in your computer. Copy a file (any file, a word document, anything) from your hard drive onto the card. Is it there? Can you copy the file back off the card to somewhere else? It sounds like the camera is fine, and the problem is with the card or the media reader.

SM card

Have had my 490Z for several months now and like it very much. I use the 32m cards and fine them just right. They take about as many of the low compression jpegs as a standard roll of 35mm film and that works fine for me. Don't think brand makes much difference but you'll want oly brand if you're going to do panoramics with the camedia software. Suggest you get extra sets of batteriess as all digicams suck up the power especially if you use the LCD a lot. If you want to expand and get some filters, tele and wide angle lenses look for the Raynox kit with one of each and the 37mm adapter. When you have the adapter you can fit many accessory lenses. ( some are really to bulky but some Kenko work pretty well. ) If you're real fussy you find they are not high enough quality to print out 8x10's but i've done some 5x7's that look very nice and the smaller photo print sizes look darn good to me.

Yes and no. Although you cannot directly attach the camera to a USB port, you can purchase an Olympus USB SmartMedia Reader that will facilitate the transfer of images via a USB port.

I'm looking for an Olympus D-620L SmartMedia card reader

This memory card is known as an 'SM' type of card. Sadly this format is now obsolete and is not in general use like the now common 'SD' type. If you hunt around you can find a general purpose multicard reader that will take various different types of memory card. These are usually cheap to buy and more useful as it can read more than one card type. Something like the link below should do the job. Make sure any you look at have 'SM' or 'Smart Media' in the description. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hama-00055348-35in1-Multi-Reader/dp/B000IH1W20/ref=sr_1_3?adgrpid=57448009850&gclid=CjwKCAjw9LSSBhBsEiwAKtf0n-_AKryFKznwm__3Ul-GL0TOmO91KadjqGK2V4FtARbJd5m3_VXqUBoCNeoQAvD_BwE&hvadid=311310235362&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=1006688&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=5544612184098298467&hvtargid=kwd-27614126&hydadcr=28180_1821132&keywords=smart+media+card+adapter&qid=1649235531&sr=8-3

Have a Olympus Camedia C-750. I want to download pictures to my PC via a card reader. Is that possible?

Question edited for clarity. Yes, you just take the xD Card out of the camera and put it into the card reader in the computer. Then open File Explorer and the images will appear as a new drive.

My Olympus E-10 is not turning on

There is an internal battery or super capacitor that is supposed to hold the settings in the camera for about 24 hours. It could be dead but it should recharge in a couple of days if you leave the big batteries installed. If it wont turn on after that, you will have to send it in for service.
