XD Card I own Olympus C50-50 Zoom CAMEDIAWhy, I can not format 1or2GB XD card !
The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb or 2gb card is not compatible. The camera came out long before these cards were in existence and therefore the firmware in the camera cannot support storage that large.

Olympus Camedia 450 Zoom digital Camera has just started to keep showing card full after a couple of shots. The cards are 64Mb and are OK as I have checked them  on the PC with a disk/card program. I have also formated them both in the camera and also the PC under a FAT 16 basis. The two lights [red/green] also flash sometimes so changed batteries just to make sure that was not the problem. Any suggestions other than scrapping it? Cheers Peter

Now neither card works and when I try to download the photos it asks me if I want to format the card. I assume that if I say "yes" and do format it, that it will erase all my photos. Is that correct?
