Having problems with your Olympus Digital Cameras ?
Does it make any difference if i use a fujifilm xd card in my olympus 1050 sw camera
A Fuji card can be used in the camera; the only function that will be disabled is if you wish to take panorama shots with the camera. Panorama in the Olympus cameras is proprietary therefore in order to shoot panorama shots Olympus requires that you specifically use their xD picture card. Otherwise the Fuji card will work just fine.

Neither the fujifilm 256MB xd card nor th enew Olympus 2GB xd card will work in the A340. I've put the card in and went to Format it in the camera as per teh menu. It acts like it does but when you take a picture it says "write error" When you turn it on again it still says "card not initialized." I've tried formating them with the camera on (lens cover open) and using the menu and with the camera off (lens cover closed powered on using the button on the back) and using the menu from that screen

I seem to be having problems connecting my Fujifilm Finepix J210 with my computer. When the hardware wizard auto intalls the drivers it shows a message that there may be problems using the hardware. We have tried updating/changing the driver which makes no difference and we know that there is no issue with the camera as it works on another computer. We have also tried other cameras/memory cards on THIS computer and they work fine.

Camera: Olympus C-720 Ultra Zoom Problem: All of a sudden the camera will not recognize nor format the memory card. I have tried changing the card, and the batteries...thinking the power was low, but with no success. On the LCD screen I get an 'Card Error'...with 2 different codes: 132F & 1304. I have tried to get information about these codes but there also I have not been able to acquire any results. Could someone please help me to fix this/these problems so I can begin to use the camer

"Please describe your clean terminal xd card dry cloth problem": Well, that is exactly what my Olympus camera tells me to do whenever I switch it on! No amount of wiping makes any difference. I also went to a local photography shop where they tried my card in a reader (with no response whatsoever), and in one of their cameras, and again there was the request to clean it with a dry cloth. The shop said there is nothing that anyone can do. Please prove me wrong! By the way, the card is an Oly

Hi I have just 4GB SDHC memory card in my D50 and it shows''CHA'' in the brackets for the number of shots. I have tried formatting it from the camera, but this doesn't make any difference. Is it possible to use an SDHC card with this camera? Nick
Hi, I am not an expert. But I just had the same problem. Far as I can tell the D50 does not support SDHC, it was made before the SDHC technology came out. Pentax offers an upgrade to support it for their cameras, so perhaps Nikon will too, though ... Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
Is there a owners manual online for the fuji finepix f20? i'm trying to figure out how to set the resolution and find out how many pics my camera will hold at different resolutions and how to use the 512 mb memory card if needed; i'm taking a cruise vacation and want to make sure i have enough memory card and/or camera space for lots of pictures; how many will it hold?

My Nikon D70 DSLR was fine when last used but after around three weeks when brought out to use again, the LED which signifies writing to the card is flashing - whether the power is on or off. Removing the CF card and reinserting it makes no difference. While this light is flashing the camera will not switch on or show any information in the LCD. It is about three years old and has been faultless until now. Any suggestions?

My canon PowerShot S 410 has a pinkish blurry lines across the screen and that is what the picture turnes out to be. I use differant memory cards it makes no differance. The battries are the same age as the camera, and neither has been used much. Thanks Robert
The imaging sensor (CCD chip) has degraded due to age and failed. This is a common fault on digital cameras over six years old.Replacing the chip is the only fix, but it's not cost effective on a camera as old as yours as it's job for pro ... Canon PowerShot S410 / IXUS 430 Digital Camera
Took pictures with Olympus Stylist 710, saved to a FujiFilm xD (512MB) memory card. Went to transfer pictures from memory card using Sabrent USB card reader, Mac computer did not recognize card. Now the card does not read in the camera.
It is possible that the memory card was damaged. This would be by coincidence. Just in case only the formatting is damaged you can try to format the memory card. \015\012\015\012As far as reading the card is concerned, if the ... Olympus Digital Cameras
My Lumix DMC FZ30 use to work using a 4gb SDHC SanDisk card, but now says, "Memory card error please check the card". However, the card works fine in any other cameras. A small pocket Fujifilm camera for example. I was told to reformat the card in the camera, but I'm unable to use any part of the FZ30 camera while the card is inserted and on.

Memory cards have a limited life. If you've been using it a lot and erasing it or formatting it, it probably is just worn out. Take it to a camera shop and try a new card. If that works, go to a discount store and buy a new one. It will cost less ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 Digital Camera

I normally use a small 32mb memory card in the olympus D-390 but used an olympus fe-130 over the holidays with a 256mb memory card. I do not have the usb cord for the fe-130 so I put the 256mb card in the d-390 camera and plugged it into my computer to load up my photos but I get a blue screen on the camera with options of Power off or format. Is the card too big for the camera? it works fine in the other to let me take photos and view them, if I had the cord for it or went to a store to print
Many cameras will not read cards written on other, different cameras. There should be no problem taking the card to a store and having the pics printed or put on a disc. Or get a cord for the 390, or a card reader for your computer. ... Olympus Camedia D-390 Digital Camera
I have a Sony DSC-H1 camera and have recently removed photos from it's memory card - the same way that I've always done it before without any troubles. Now, when I put in the memory stick and turn on the camera, the screen shows "no file in this folder" and won't go any further. I've tried to go through the menu and reformat the memory stick but it didn't make any difference. What do I need to do to continue to use this memory stick?
If you have a card reader/writer in your computer, you can put it in there and try and format it, using Fat 16. If it won'd show up there, then your memory stick is faulty and will need to be replaced. If it does show up and you are able to format ... Digital Cameras

Shutter Lag All, I have an Olympus 5050 Digital Camera that I have been using for a while now for home use and I am quite happy with the results. The only complaint I have is with the capture speed of the camera. The shutter lag seems to be about between 3-5 seconds which becomes quite obvious while taking pictures of moving objects (moving kids). I don't know if the issue is with the shutter speed of the camera or with the slower memory cards. I am using the SimpleTecg 256 MB Compact Flash card
Card speed won't interfere with shutter lag.\015\012\015\012The lag is much less (near non-existent) if you pre-focus. Or use manual focus with small enough aperture to get lots of depth of field. Make sure your kids are in the focus zone and just sn ... Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera

I had taken many pics in Florida in the last several days with my camera and then 2 days ago, I tried using the camera and I am getting the message "Card Not Intitialized".
