When I take a picture the response I get is Read Error or Write Error. I have had this problem with two different picture cards. The last one is new --H1GB. Is there a problem with the camera that I can correct. Unfortunately, I have misplaced my manual.

If your memory card is 4GB or larger, AND if your computer is two or more years old, your computer's card reader might not be able to read the newer 4GB SDHC card. In that case, just purchase an inexpensive USB card reader from WMart, or Amazon (here's an example). Try a different card reader first to see if you can directly copy and paste the pictures from the card onto your hard drive. If the new card reader doesn't see the files, then try recovery software. Here's some freeware to try. If the software still doesn't see the card with the new card reader, you may next need to try the corrupted card procedures described at the bottom of this linked article.
I/O error is an input output error - it means the card reader cannot read the SD card. Possibly the card reader is defective or the adapter is defective. Is the adapter or the card "locked" there should be a little slide ont he side - be sure it is all the way in the open position.There is a software called Oxycube which will read most phones using a data cable or bluetooth if your pc has an adapter - it will save pix from either the fone or a storage card.
Try formatting the cards in a PC before you put into the camera. Do the long format, not the quick. It will take some time, but give it a shot. If that doesn't work, buy new memory cards. Cards don't last forever, and it's not worth it to take pictures on a marginal card and then have them not work.
Put the card back into the camera and off load/take off your pictures (Put them on the computer). Then, put the card back into the camera and go to your options menu. Find the format feature, and format the card. Take some new pictures and then try putting the card back into the picture frame. Does it work? If so, transfer the images from your computer back to the card. If it continues to work, then Great! If not, more than likely there is an improper or corrupt file among your photos.
Try to use a card reader instead. They are only a few dollars. I use one all the time, and hardly ever will use the camera on different models I have. Never delete from the PC to the camera. It can cause corruption. Once corrupted, you may lose all pictures on the card. Always delete from the camera, unless you will format the card anyway. Use the camera and try to delete the bad picture from the camera. this may fix the problem, if not, try to read from another camera or a card reader...don't ever delete from another camera or the card reader.
The last is not good, and that means to format the card, and you will lose all which is on the card. You may try to copy to internal memory.
One more thing... take out the card. reset all in the camera menu. Then reset all the things you like. Put the card in and try to read each picture in play mode only. If one picture is very slow, delete it. This may take some time as corrupted files may read slowly. then try again.
These cameras only have a short life span, and I would say yours is about due. We had a 1.3mp digital camera until recently and it started doing the same thing. As digital cameras are so cheap now I would recommend having a look at a new one.
The only thing you could try is to get a new memory card as the cards may be damaged, but this may be throwing money away if you can't use the new card in another camera. It will depend on what type of card it uses, as most of the new cameras use a different type than the older ones.
If I remember my last Olympus camera it would only work in Panorama mode with an official Olympus memory card. No third party cards would enable that feature. My instructions read "An Olympus xD-Picture Card is
required for panorama shooting." If you are using an official Olympus xD-Picture card, there may be a problem with your camera.
