Press >menu< button, select >mode< select >card< select >format< select >yes< press >ok< (menu button)
During formatting DO NOT open battery cover, card cover, or plug in AC adapter.
Make sure you have all your files saved on your computer or elsewhere before formatting your card, since all images will be deleted.#
Hope that helps

Picture error message on olympus 1200

Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the Picture error message and the card can be used again. The picture error message indicates that this image is now corrupted and unable to be viewed through the camera.
