    i have an olympus d-340r digital camera. i used a zio dazzle card
    reader with it and everything was fine.

    then the card that came with it seemed to lose most of it's capacity.

    so, i bought a pny 64mb smartmedia card to replace it. now i cannot
    get the zio card reader to read the new card. when i insert the card,
    the volume doesn't mount on my desktop.

    any suggestions on this? thanks for any help you can offer.

    Have you cleaned the contacts on the reader? I do this by putting some
    cleaning solvent on the card contacts and pushing it in and out a few
    times. You might also be sure the contacts on the USB connection are
    clean. Presumably your camera is seeing the card perfectly????

    I don't know if it's relevant to your situation, but my understanding
    (from the manual) is that the D-340R only accepts up to a 16MB
    Smartmedia card and can be upgraded to handle a 32MB card (from
    Olympus website). I've used both my Dazzle reader (on the road) and
    my trusty Flashgate (at home) with the 16MB cards I use in my D-340R
    with no problems to this point. Hope this helps.

    I used a 64meg SmartMedia and Zio with my d-340r quite successfully. I
    don't recall doing any upgrades.

    Thanks, Ron. That's welcome news to me. I'll be getting some larger
    capacity cards for mine then.
