    I have a couple of Olympus smartmedia cards
    which have been corrupted following lockups
    when reading them via a pcmcia reader
    adaptor and removing them from the adaptor
    possibly while the card was still being read. The
    camera reports it as a corrupt or unreadable

    Is there some way to reformat them, preferably
    as an Olympus card, but if not just as a generic
    smartmedia card?

    Thanks for any advice

  2. yes.....go to Google and search newsgroups....its been answered many
    times...earlier this week even. The information will include a reader that
    can low-level format the card. Then you format in the camera. If that gives
    you your special functions...good....otherwise there is other information
    that will add those functions to a non-oly card.
