XD Card size limit on a Olympus C-50 Zoom

Discussion in 'Olympus' started by Michael Bushey, Sep 5, 2007.

  1. I just bought a 1 gb xd card for my C-50 zoom. The camera won't format the
    card and reports a card error. Is there a size limit for xd cards and older
    digitals?

    Yes. I have an old Olympus C840 laying about here and it doesn't like anything over 16 meg.

  3. According to Olympus, you can give your camera an upgrade, which breaks
    its 256MB limit. I don't know what they mean by upgrade. Hopefully it's
    just a firmware flash, that you can perform yourself:
