Olympus D-600L Smart Media Upgrade
 
Hi Everyone,

I own the forementioned camera and recently resolved to purchase a new 128meg SM card for it. Luckily I came across this site and managed to save myself from wasting AUD$120 on a card that is incompatible with my camera. I believe that the maximum size this camera can accept is 32meg but the older cameras produced must be upgraded to allow this. I noticed that the cut-off date for this service was the 31 December which is just my luck. I was wondering of there is any way to tell if my camera will accept the larger SM sizes (16 or 32mb) without having to purchase a card or send it to Olympus? Also I have seen various software programs and hacks that can allow a person to communicate with their camera from a PC. Is there a way to upgrade the firmware myself by using an official or 'unofficial' firmware upgrade?

Thanks in advance,
Merkin.

Some older cameras actually use different voltage SM as well (ie 5V instead of 3.3V) so it could be more than just a software upgrade...

Send an email to Olympus. They can tell you.
