I just recently updated the firmware 1.2 on my Olympus E500 and now my Compact Flash card went from showing over 400 available slots for pictures to 64. I've tried 2 different Kingston cards 1024 MB each with the same result. I'm beyond frustrated.

Is there anyway to reset back to version 1.1?

Is there a reset button on the camera at all?

Thank you very much.

Have you re-formatted your cards? If you insert them into your computer or card reader and then check the card(s)on your computer as if they were a separate drive, how much freespace does it say they have on them?

Nope, once you update the firmware, there's no going back. At some point in the process it even asks if you want to proceed because there's no going back, but I have a feeling there's either something you don't know and/or haven't said about what's going onthat'll "fix" your cards.

Are you sure you didn't accidently change your record mode to RAW?
