Olympus Camedia C3000 is stuck in format disk mode

\015 Hello, My Olympus Camedia C3000 digital camera is stuck in format disk mode. I try to\015\012click no and it just shuts itself off. I click yes - card set up and I\015\012get "card error"I re-formatted the card on my laptop, and that didn't workMy laptop recognizes the card so I don't think it's the card, but instead a setting on the camera. I believe I might have pressed a button that I have not used before (I don't have a manual for this camera) and accessed this setting but now can't exit out of it.I also do not know if the card is the original one for this camera. It is an ID Smart 32 MB media card that is fairly large (compared to the others I see at the stores)Thanks for your time\015

Hi all!!! I am so excited to say that i fixed my Olympus 3000 card error. I read around and this is what i found to do.......
plug in the camera to your computer then turn it on. Next flip the
the camera switch betweem P, playback, and asm repeatedly. unplug the cord open the door to the cardreader the screen should say door open. scroll the knob again. Take out the card. put it back in then put it in playback mode. HURRAY!!! it should work. If it does not work try pulling out the card at a different time. It sounds crazy but it really worked without having to download anything at all. OH, and if it works for you please post it because there are so many answers and it is hard to choose one that will work. BE BLESSED!!!
Have you tried removing the batteries and waiting a few minutes and then putting them back in?
