I would suggest you buy a usb card reader, pop in your card and save the pics to your PC, then reformat the card either on the PC or in your camera.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers

I have the same problem with my new Olympus Stylus Tough 6020. My cards are readable and formatable in the PC and other cameras I have (Canon and Panasonic) but in the Olympus I am asked to format the card but then cannot as I get the error message. I have read elsewhere that you must not format before using in the Olympus but is there any solution out there if you have?
