Recovering xD data is always tricky as the specifications have never been publicly available, it's only during the last couple of years that reverse-engineering has produced software able to do so.

I've found that there are plenty of recovery tools which can recover the raw data but very few which can actually make sense of it. I'd suggest that you first see if there's a money back option on CardRecovery and then try a free trial of Acute Tools PhotoNose ( http://www.acutetools.com/photonose/xd-card-recovery.aspx ). I haven't had the chance to try it for myself yet but I've heard from a couple of friends that it does work. F Recovery xD has also been recommended to me but again I have yet to try it for myself. ( http://www.filerecoverytools.com/products/fr_xd-picture/ )

What is certain at the present time is that there are no reliable free xD recovery tools, so whatever else you buy ensure that it either has a free trial or a money back option.

I hope that you have found my posting to be useful and ask in return only that you remember to rate my answer.

Olympus sp-550uz wont take photos


Okay so you're probably first thing I would do is make sure that the batteries and charging is good and the camera has power and enough power to operate the second thing I would focus on is the memory card they can wear out they can go bad and they can break I would try different memory card I'm also attaching the manual for that camera make sure you get a memory card that belongs with that camera even though they look the same they have different speed ratings on the card from 1 to 10 make sure you have the exact and proper memory card it's made for that camera or it will not work http://cs.olympus-imaging.jp/en/support/imsg/digicamera/download/manual/zoom/man_sp550_e.pdf

How to remove write protect from olympus xd card


You don't state whether you've tried using the tiny switch located on the xD card to unlock it.

If it is already in the unlocked position then push it fully to the locked position and then fully back again.

If this does not work then please report back for additional options.

Is it possible to recover my formatted pictures on my XD card


Deleting or formatting won't make the data in xd card erased permanently.

Those deleted data is still stored on the xd card, it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of xd card .

So as long as those data are not overwritten by new data, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.

Try asoftech data recovery program, which can recover data after deeply scanning your xd card drive to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted.

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

Olympus 2G xd M card with pictures - error message "clean card" or format


Just had the same issue today. The Olympus Helpdesk told me that the fact I had printed one of the picture from the Xd card in directly inserting the card in the printer slot for Xd created the problem....
The guy from the Helpdesk strongly recommended to transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer exclusively using the USB cable of the camera.
In the end I have saved all my 505 pictures in using the Smart Recovery from PC Inspector but why the hell this problem only happens with Xd cards?

PHOTOS ON INTERNAL MEMORY - HOW DO I TRANSFER THEM TO CARD SO THAT I CAN GET THEM PRINTED AT SHOP?


Hi KarenB,
Not sure if anyone ever got back to you on this but i just had the same problem then googled it and found this
Yes, the [BACKUP] feature will transfer files from the camera's internal memory to an xD-Picture Card™ flash memory card. It does not delete those files from the internal memory. To perform a backup, insert an xD-Picture Card flash memory card into the camera and then turn the camera on. Press the [MENU] button. Press the Right arrow button to select the Setup icon, and then press the [OK] button to enter the Setup menu. Use the Up or Down arrow to select [BACKUP], and then press [OK].
