Having problems with your Olympus Camedia D-390 Digital Camera ?

When I turn on my Olympus Camedia D-390 it flashes an orange warning sign and says "Write Protect". This somehow came up after no problems shooting my first 100 or so photos and uploading-downloading to my Windows XP IBM Laptop. Why did this happen and can I fix the problem?


Answers :

You need to look at the media card onto which you are taking the photos. Possibly when you reinserted that card into the camera, you accidentaly moved the copy protection switch into the read only position.

\015\012These things are so very small that they are hard to see, or even feel, and equally difficult to know when you have moved it.
\015\012
\015\012Remove the card and check the edges for this switch, to ensure that it has not been moved into read only. Then move it back to allow writing to the card.

For no apparent reason, my GE A835 camera failed to upload photos.

I have a Kodak EasyShare V550 camera. I've had it for years and had no problems with it until recently. Now I am unable to upload photos to the computer. I've tried using Picasa, Roxio, and Windows to upload the photos, but all of them say that the memory card is empty ... but when the memory card is in the camera, I can see and review all of the photos. Could be that the camera and/or the memory card are over the hill, but I'm still hoping that I can get our vacation photos from it

Transferring photos I have had the camera for three months with no problem.  I have been trying now to download some short movies and they come up blank in quick time. I had no problem doing this with with my first camera.   Now I can't transfer regular still photos from the camera to my mac.  I don't think I have changed any settings, either on the camera or the mac and am quite frustrated. The operating manual has been no help.   Appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks.


I think this has to do with the video format and/or version of Quicktime being used in the camera vs the PC.I have no clue on a mac but I experienced similar on certain Win-dohs OS's some time ago.I'm not sure it's a defect so much as a c ... Pentax Optio A10 Digital Camera
