I am experiencing a problem with my camera, and don't know what it could be attributed to. I take a shot, and the red lamp - on the camera's rear, by the card slot door - illuminates and enters a flickering stage for close to three minutes. At the same time, the LCD info screen shows the flashing icon of a pencil drawing a line on a piece of paper. At the end of this time period, the red lamp extinguishes and the LCD screen goes blank. I then turn the powermode dial from the "P" position to "OFF", and the camera then emits 16 beeps. The battery indicator (upon restarting the camera) shows a full charge.
Everything was fine, when I used the camera the other day. The batteries had been taken out and recharged, earlier tonight, and this problem surfaced after reinstalling them.
Any ideas what could be wrong?

Re: My Olympus (C-3000 Zoom) camera problem.
Well, I did get this problem squared away. What I had to do was to format my card. Prior to doing this I grabbed all of the photos from the camera via my 'FileScavenger' data retrieval program (whew, so glad that I bought that nifty program).

You will need to source the correct software so as to connect the camera to the PC. If it is for transfering photos use the card reader directly to be put into the PC and transferred.

I also have a c-3000 zoom and tried to use it with my vista laptop for the first time (worked fine for years on xp with the software). I got an error message saying something along the lines of "Your camera is too old to work with Vista" (not the exact wording). I bought an external card reader, and you should probably do the same.
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
