Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-730 Digital Camera ?

Olympus c-730, does it support xD-Picture cards greater than 128M

\015 The specs for my c-730 camera say it supports xD-Picture cards 16-128 MB. Since the cards keep getting bigger all the time, I'm wondering if a larger card will work with this camera. I can buy a 2 gig card for $25, but I'm afraid to buy it if it won't work. Has anyone tried a card that big in this camera?\015

Answers :

The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb or 2gb cards are not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage with that capacity. The camera came out before those cards did and there no plans to upgrade the camera to allow those types of cards to be supported.
