Having problems with your Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera ?
How do I erase ALL my pictures?
\015 I have an Olympus FE 280 & usually when I upload the pics to my pc it gives me the option to erase them all. This time it didn't happen & I can't get clear instructions in the guide. Also- what are the best settings for taking pics of sports?Thanks in advance!Melissa \015
When you connect your camera to the computer it should appear as an external hard drive on your desktop (as well as start up your photo handling software). At the desktop level you should be able to open the camera as a drive and navigate the folders to the photos. Then you can delete them the same way you would delete any file and empty the trash before you unmount the camera from the desktop.. Sports are so variable that one group of settings would not work satisfactorily for all.

Pictures Lost??? We have a large number of pics on our 1GB memory card in our camera. However after unsuccessfully trying to transfer images onto file via the olympus master software, the pictures cannot be viewed on the camera. They don't seem to be erased, as only 10 pictures can still be taken on the memory card (in HQ format). If they were erased there'd be more space available? These pictures are very valuable but I cannot work out where they have gone to. I haven't pressed the Erase All bu

Memory Twice now the entire library of pictures we saved completely erased. We're not sure how they're erasing... we must have accidently pressed a button that deleted them but how can it be that it's so easy to erase ALL the pictures? I feel like there should atleast be a prompt that asks "delete all pictures? yes or no" like there is with text messages and emails or anything else. Is there a way to get our pictures back? Is there a back up memory??

I have a Canon PowerShot A550. I was resetting some of my features and accidentally pushed format. As you know, that automatically erased all my pictures.

It would be a shame if, because of human error, I lost all of my pictures. Please advise. Thank you, Dottie
