Is a new M2gb xD card compatable with a Olympus C5050?

\015 I've been running a 1gb mini-drive in my C5050, but decided to purchase a M2gb xD card to gain more capacity. The card works on my reader and is formatted for FAT, but it is not reconized in the camera. The screen on my camera wants to format, but then does not see the card when I say yes. Have I exceeded the abilities of this camera to read and use a card of this size?\015

Answers :

Yes I know that it will not support a card of this size. Also, the latest firmware upgrade does nothing to help that either. Sorry, It's not what you wanted to hear, but better the truth right?
You will definitely have issues trying to use the bigger cards on this device based on when it was made. I would just go with having multiple 1gb cards. If you still need further assistance let me know. Please take a moment to rate my solution accordingly.

When my memory card ran out of space on my Olympus Digital E 500, I put in a new card. A "card error" message appeared on the screen. This has never happened before. Now neither card works and when I try to download the photos it asks me if I want to format the card. I assume that if I say "yes" and do format it, that it will erase all my photos. Is that correct?
