Default Smartmedia Card Format for 3030Z

Smartmedia Card Format for 3030Z

What is the formatting of the Smartmedia card so my Olympus 3030Z can use it.

I can format it in

FAT12, FAT16 or FAT32

with cluster sizes of

0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8 ,16 or 32KB

There is also an option to "Backup FAT" which may or may not be taken.

I messed up the formatting on my PDA and don't know what the start settings were.

Place card in 3030 follow intructions in book, must be formatted by camera, you will not have to make any fat choices. just tell it to format as book says.

Thanks,

When I tried that it came back with "card error".

I have since been on to Olympus by phone who claim that there is nothing I can do to it if it is formatted by a PC or PDA, the card is now kaput.

Let this be a lesson to all.

Ah well I can still use it in my PDA !

Already tried this one?
Leave cxamera's power on. Remove and reinsert media, then retry the format.
It worked with me when I had a C3030.
