I have an Olympus 3030 zoom. I'm not sure how smartmedia works. Can I just stick a 256 meg card in it or is there a maximum size memory that it recognizes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.



TIA,

Eric

Is there such a thing as a 256 meg Smartmedia card or are you referring to some other format?

Your camera is the 3V Smartmedia type: ie as long as you stay with higher sized card you should be fine. Stay away from the older 5V smaller sized Smartmedia:

Q - There seem to be two different types of SmartMedia™ , with 5V and 3.3V specifications respectively. How can they be distinguished?
A - When the golden terminal on the card is faced upward, the 5V card has a notch on its upper left, while the 3.3V type has one on its upper right. Capacity is indicated on this plastic card, followed by the operating voltage.
