    What causes a "card error"?
    Is there anyting to be done to avoid it?

    I had this happen on SM cards, in a different camera, also.

    I was on vacation so it was frustrating.
    When I got home I downloaded the pics and reformatted the card.
    That seemed to clear up the problem.

    My olympus came with a warning about deleting pics via the card
    reader (olympus card reader as well) or do anything, really,
    aside from copying the files over to the machine.

    It is always best to reformat in the camera anyhow, that way the
    camera should surely know how to get it right:)

    Give unto the camera that which is the cameras. Format in
    the camera ONLY. Deleting in the camera is ok for the god
    of the camera has ordained that such functions are Right.

    When downloading, download ONLY, for the god of the Camera
    is a wrathful god and it will get you if you mess with
    the download.

    Once the photo is on your computer, trash it all you want.
    The god of the camera no longer cares.

    But do NOT format your memory card on your computer, for if
    you do, the god of the camera will notice and give you a
    hickey where it hurts.
