Both H-type and M-type cards function with my camera now.
I'll write the same repost as another I just did, as it\015\012sounds like your problem is the same or similar. Hope it helps solve\015\012your problem as well even though it's a different camera and memory\015\012card type.

\015\012Kristina,
\015\012
\015\012Not knowing what model Olympus camera you have, or how old it is - your\015\012new memory card "format" problem is one of 3 possibilities.
\015\012
\015\0121st - If you have an older Olympus camera more\015\012then 4-5 years old the newer M & H series type cards over 256mb\015\012will probably not work in your older camera, as by the camera's\015\012internal firmware chip design of the camera itself. Some cameras were\015\012upgradeable some weren't as to the internal firmware chip as well as\015\012available software drivers depending on which computer OS system you\015\012were using ie: (WIN98SE, WIN2000, etc). Has to do with the memory card\015\012read/write chip speed as well, and also has to do with the physical\015\012storage size of the card itself. Some digital cameras were MAXED OUT at\015\012512mb cards, some as low as 256mb. A 2gb card simple won't work in\015\012that/your camera in that case.
\015\012
\015\012If you read the camera's user manual it will possibly tell you this, or\015\012else go online to www.olympusamerica.com and use this link:
\015\012
\015\012View which cameras are compatible
\015\012
\015\012Select camera model series and scroll down the model # and research the\015\012max card size & type you can use (3 basic XD card speed types\015\012available - regular XD - M type - H type).
\015\012
\015\012If you are using the wrong type & size card you will need to return\015\012that card (if you can) and get the right XD size & type for your\015\012camera.
\015\012
\015\0122nd - You should always FORMAT (same as ERASE ALL and FORMAT modes on\015\012most Olympus cameras) the new card, or any XD card for that matter in\015\012your camera itself. NOT THE HOME COMPUTER!!! The 2 format procedures\015\012are not the same!!
\015\012
\015\012If you are re-shooting (re-using) the same XD card over and over again\015\012and then downloading the JPEG pix directly to the computer using a USB\015\012interface cable there usually is no need to re-format the card again as\015\012long as the XD card stays the camera and is not downloaded into a home\015\012computer via a "card reader". If you do the latter "card reader" then I\015\012would advise doing a card re-format in the camera again just to be\015\012safe!!
\015\012
\015\012And lastly - If your home computer recognizes the XD card via a good\015\012"card reader" (do not FORMAT the XD card here btw, as you are just\015\012checking the card out to see it is GOOD is all), but the camera will\015\012not then that is a good sign your camera is OK, but it's just the wrong\015\012type & size XD card.
\015\012
\015\012Hope this helps solve your camera XD problem not knowing which model you have.
\015\012
\015\012Best regards,
\015\012

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 camera has a blurred display within 25 seconds of being turned on when in any mode other than playback. When the display blurs, it quite quickly becomes unviewable, and if I try to take a photo, an error message saying WRITE ERROR PLEASE CHECK THE CARD shows on the screen. The card seems fine and pictures I took before today all look good, both on the display and in a computer. Is there any fix, or do I need a new camera?
