Olympus D560 not recognizing cards

Discussion in 'Olympus' started by Victor S. Miller, Jun 3, 2006.

  1. We have an Olympus D560, which had been working without problem up
    until 3 days ago. After taking a few pictures, the camera refused to
    take anymore pictures. After turning it off and on, it just puts up a
    screen to either turn it off or format the card. Since the pictures
    on the card weren't really important, I chose format. After about a
    second it showed "Card Error". Since we wanted a bigger card anyway
    (we only had a 64MB card) we purchased a 1GB card made by Olympus. I
    heeded the warning label on the blister pack that said that I had to
    upgrade the firmware. I went to the Olympus site, and did that.
    However, now when I insert the 1GB card (brand new) it has exactly the
    same behavior as the old card.

    One thing that I did notice -- that pressing in the card does NOT
    cause it to eject -- I need to use the little notch at the end of the
    card to pull it out. Is this significant? Does anyone have any
    suggestions?
