I have an Olympus Stylus Tough -6000 digital camera and when I turn it on a message appears on the screen that says "Card-Cover Open" and it won't allow me to operate the camera. The problem is that the card cover is NOT open, the battery and USB covers are securely closed, so I don't know what to do. Please Help! Thanks

Why does my olympus stylus tough 8000 say the card cover is open when it's not? The camera won't let me do anything and I only want to use it above water now anyway, so as far as I'm concerned it doesn't matter if the card cover's open! How can I stop the camera from displaying this irritating message???

Neither the fujifilm 256MB xd card nor th enew Olympus 2GB xd card will work in the A340. I've put the card in and went to Format it in the camera as per teh menu. It acts like it does but when you take a picture it says "write error" When you turn it on again it still says "card not initialized."
