Olympus xd powercard cannot read

\015 Xd powercard error\015

Answers :

Hi Christie,
Are you using genuine Olympus cards?.
The Chinese Ripoffs are often 256K reprogrammed to appear to your camera and computer as 1 or 2Mb.
And the chips are mostly rejects. if you compare the two you can usually see that the counterfeits silkscreen printing, is off color or misaligned. The batteries are garbage also..

One thing you might want to try is to buy a bottle of isopropal alcohol ( do not use rubbing, as it contains lanolin) costs you about $.99 Using a Que tip, lightly clean the gold contacts on the Xd cards. Wiping parallel with the contacts.

If you need to replace the card, go to the Olympus website accessories page for your camera.
They have reconditioned 2Mb type M cards for only $20.00
and they are warranted.
Don't bother with the Xd M+ as they are only fractionally faster for video applications. I hope I was of some help.
Best regards, Paul

So I bought an olympus battery, charged it up and put it in and the camera still doesn't work. the only battery that kind of works is the original battery the camera came with.

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory.

Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year.

My Kodak C190 will not read the card. I cannot format it in the camera because IT WON'T READ IT IN THE CAMERA. I keep seeing the same answer - "format in the camera" - but it can't read it. Now what ? I have I tried three other cards of varying sizes - 2gb, 4gb, 8gb, and 16gb - none were able to be read. The camera works fine with its internal memory, but that doesn't hold much at all.
