XD Picture Card

  ijmont 22:14 14 Feb 2006

I have a card that can be read by my card reader but gets a card error message in the camera. Can't format in the camera due to error message but can format in the reader but the camera wont recognise it. Have written various types of file on it and reader works every time. Restored a file of pictures taken on other card but still camera wont read the card. Would appreciate any help.

Unlike Compactflash. XD cards when used for camera's cannot be formatted via a PC

Never format, copy files to or erase pictures from a xD card via a card readerwriter connected to a computer, only do so via the camera. xD-Picture cards are specially formatted with certain proprietary tags and flags. Formatting or otherwise altering the contents of the card via a card readerwriter connected to a computer will render the card unusable in a camera or erase the special Olympus signature to enable panoramic mode. The detail specification for xD cards (needed to implement their use) is tightly controlled by Olympus and Fujifilm.
