Olympus xD-Picture Card "Card Error"

\015 Experiencing problems with my Olympus xD-Picture Card, its a 512MB. My camera Olympus 700 7.1 megapixel is randomly displaying "card error" and when I try to import the pictures onto my pc there are usually thumbnails displayed but there is no image just a symbol of a cracked picture and a message says that these pictures cannot be imported.\015\012\015\012I have an Olympus Camedia C-740 Ulta Zoom with a 3.2 megapixel, 10x optical zoom. I purchased a new oylmpus M2gb XD-picture card. When I insert the card it says "card setup", "format" and it comes up "card error".What do I do? Thank you\015\012 [email protected]\015

Answers :

First things first - need to make sure that the card is making proper electrical contact with the camera. Have a look at the contacts at the edge of the card and make sure they are spotlessly clean - even a fingerprint may cause problems.
\015\012Also, make sure the contacts in the camera have nothing causing a contact problem, and see if this resolves the issue.

Picture error I have a problem with my Olympus SP 500UZ. When I take a couple of pictures on one day. Shut the camera down and start it later on to take new pictures. The screen turns blue when I want to see the pictures. It gives the message: Picture Error or Fatal error and every photo on the memory card is gone! I send it to the Olympus repair for three times now, but they tell me every time that there's nothing wrong with the camera. Is this a known problem??

Picture error I have an Olympus SP-51OUZ camera. Nearly every photo I take, when reviewed, comes up with 'picture error' and a big warning exclamation mark (in red on a blue background). Only about 1 in 20 photos taken are ok. I have formatted the card but it still happens. When I used the card on my laptop it scanned it & said there were no problems with it. Obviously it's a nightmare because I have to review every single photo to check it has come out! Please help! Rachel
