Help please, I can explore the smartmedia card with images on it, in My Computer (File Manager)
but when the card in inserted into the camera, it says "card error". Anyone else had this problem ?,cheers.

I find if I format the card in the PC, it doesn't work in the camera.

If I format it in the camera no probs.

I also think that if you open and resave a pic from the PC to the smartmedia, you can't reuse the card in the camera until you reformat it.

What make of camera is it?

Note that some cameras (my Fuji 5700 for example) doesn't allow you to format the card in the camera if you've formatted it on the PC in the wrong format.

The card has not been formated on the computer.
The camera is an OlympusC700, when the card is in the camera, it reads card error, and then you can't do anything with it at all, you cannot view the pictures, take a picture or format it.
Thanks for the reply. cheers

Have you tried another card? I had a problem with a card that turned out to be faulty.

try cleaning the chip on the back of the card with a soft cloth, it could be that this has become dirty

Hope this helps
