    I have an Olympus C-60 Zoom camera that is only a few years old, but I can't
    seem to find a 512MB memory card that is not one of the newer M512 or H512
    cards. The H and M cards are not compatible with my C-60. I've tried
    BestBuy, OfficeMax, CompUSA - they all claim to have the regular 512MB card,
    but when I order one, they send either the M512 or H512 card and I have to
    return them. OlympusAmerica Customer Service doesn't have any answers, and
    they can't even explain why the older C-50 Zoom is upgradable to the new H
    and M cards, but the newer C-60 isn't. Can anyone out there offer some
    suggestions ???

    Thanks in advance.............

    Get another camera that doesn't use a proprietary card format?

    This is rather strange. I have an Olympus C-60 Zoom serial number
    183511007 Made in China. I just took out its normal 128Mb card and tried
    a 1Gb Olympus Type H which normally lives in a Fuji A605. The card works
    perfectly and the lcd tells me it will yield 702 HQ images at 2816x2112
    pixels.

    Thanks - sounds like it's worth a try. OlympusAmerica product support said
    I'd just get a "card error" message if I used the M or H cards.

    Damn, I could just kick myself for ever parting with my Polaroid "Swinger"
