Hi,
I've got the same problem with my Olympus E500. When I insert the used before with the same camera CF cards (Lexar 2GB, formatted in FAT or Kingston 8GB, formatted in Fat32) I received message "Card Error". I updated the firmware from 1.0 to 1.3, the last firlware, provided from Olympus, but the problem remains. The cards are recognized in Canon 1Ds and in Windows 7, too.
So the problem have to be in the camera.
When I try to format the card I received just the message "Card Error".

I need help as soon as possible!

Greetings!

I have a Panasonic VDR-M50 camcorder. I was attempting to finalize several DVD-R discs and received two different error codes : 0901 and 0280.
