Default SmartMedia look full on Olympus C-990Z

I have a Olympus C-990Z and an USB SanDisk reader for the SmartMedia card. Last time I use my cam, I receive the message "CARD FULL" on my Olympus, and that before I take the 128 pics I normally can take WITH THE 64 MB card. I can download the pics with the SanDisk reader on my computer. As I can't delete the pics from the cam, I delete all the pics with the SanDisk reader.
But when I put the card back in the Olympus, I still have the message "Card Full" and I can't use it anymore.
Can someone told me how I can format the card for use it again in the Olympus.
Thanks in advance

It's best to use the card format card function from the menu on your Olympus camera. In that way, you are sure to format the card the way your camera likes it.

As lg said do it in the cam. As soon as you buy or aquire a new card do it in the cam. If your 128 was not formated by card reader then easy fix in camm. If you formatted with reader "let the games begin", big aw ship.
