Hi
\015\012
\015\012It sounds like you have either intentionally or inadvertently set your camera to it's highest possible setting.
\015\012\015\012I believe this camera has a TIFF image capability, which takes\015\012beautiful shots , but each weigh in at a hefty 15mb or so, which takes\015\012the cameras processor a little more time (quite some time on my old\015\012Olympus Camedia 5000z) to process and ready itself for the next shot in\015\012memory, - whilst it will allow you to knock out a couple in a row, if\015\012you do so you are only compounding the issue by lengthening the queue\015\012in memory.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012So, the easiest way to tell if you have set this is to just look how\015\012many shots you have available on the card, if this seems unusually low,\015\012then you have set the camera to TIFF mode or a very hi res JPEG. in\015\012which case you must press the settings button, the go left into the\015\012image size settings menu and\015\012change the image size back to the best setting for your cameras, which\015\012should be a mega pixel or so lower than it's maximum capability for the\015\012fastest and most capable daily use of the camera. between 2-4 mega\015\012pixels is usually fine for domestic and family snaps that are still\015\012very printable. save the hi settings for the broad landscapes and super\015\012close Macros, then you really see the cameras capabilities shine!:-)
\015\012\015\012Highest resolution is fantastic, but slow -as you have noticed - and best saved for the occasional macro on a tripod.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012I hope this solves your problem. Otherwise you can try formatting the\015\012card, they do often gather batches of small undeleted 'thumbnails' on\015\012Olympus cameras.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Also if the card is over 2-3 years old, you could well be right in your\015\012assumption that it needs replacing, in which case you will be\015\012pleasantly surprised how cheap they have become for much larger\015\012capacity cards.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012All the best and happy snapping!.

Nikon d80 - most of the time memory card access lamp flashes and shutter release button doesn't trigger shutter. Sometimes it will stop blinking and camera will fire.
