Question about Olympus C-3000 Zoom Digital Camera
I got the olympus 3000 zoom camera. It takes great picutres and stuff, but periodicaly I have trouble with the smartmedia card reading on it. Now, no card seems to work. I try and format the 128mb smartmedia card I have, and the 16mb smartmedia card in my camera and it doenst work. I was told that you can not format it without being in the camera? Because a replacement for this camera is around 150+.... I was wondering if anybody had a similar problem more a good solutions.

I have Olympus C300 Zoom and C4000 Zoom and had the Card Error on both of them. Sent the C3000 to Olympus foir repair, they wanted $200 si I had it returned unrepaired. Talking to an Olympus tech rep he said the problem was the card, not the camera. I formatted thecard twice in my Kodak Multi card reader and reinstalled it, no luck. Did it again and reinserted the card and when I turned the camera on I switched to the manual mode setting and suddenly everything worked, I formatted the card and from that point on everything worked in all modes, same for the C4000 Zoom. Who knows why, they are both working fine now, two months later. I hope this helps someone. Olympus had repaired the C3000 Zoom for the same problem 18 months earlier.

This is also my first posting, and I am having a simular problem with the same camera type. When I place the card in the camera, I get the No Card message. When I use the card in a multicard reader I can view all the images. Since the camera is not detecting a card, i can not attempt to format it
