Having problems with your Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera ?

I have an Olympus XD-Picture Card M 1GB ant the problem is that I can see my pictures with the card in the camera Olympus FE-230 but when I want to download the pictures to the computer I just see FOUND.000 directory and BOOTEX.LOG file. I cannot download the pictures neither from the card nor connecting the camera. How can I fix this? Which is the OS of the camera?

Answers :

First thing I would try to do is to ensure that the card and camera contacts are clean (use a qtip and 90% iso alcohol). Next, inspect the wire contact legs inside the camera, and make sure none are bent or out of alignment. The camera itself has no OS, but is recognized as another drive. Have you gone into Computer and been able to open up the DCIM folder, or is the computer detecting it? Maybe that's where the FOUND.000 file is, not sure, just checking.
\015\012The card could be corrupt, I suppose, but I don't see how, if the camera is reading it. There are 3rd party software card "fixers" on the net if you google them, but not sure if they would help you, but they might.
\015\012Try another card to try to ensure that the problem isn't the camera or cord.
\015\012That's all I can think of, and hope it helps.
