I have a nice D-340L that has served long and well. When I bought the camera I also purchased a larger than supplied Smartmedia with about 16 MB memory. The camera handled this just fine for a long time until one day when I could not download the photos to the PC. I am using a USB card reader that works just fine with the supplied Olympus media. No additional software is required, just the hardware device installation and the proper driver. After I tried several times to reformat the larger media in the camera according to the instructions without success I discarded that media chip and bought another smartmedia chip, this time with 64MB memory. My camera records on it and displays the images on the LCD screen. My usb reader will show the icons for the images, but my software program, Paint Shop Pro7 says that the image is not a valid jpeg/jfif file. The camera thinks they are OK and will display them, but the chip seems to be corrupt or perhaps the problem is with the PSP. I don't know why the PSP doesn't recognize the images on the chip. Do you think the problem is with the PSP7 or the chip? Any help you give me would be appreciated. I did format the new chip in the camera according to the directions. Thanks. Jack.
