So it turns out that a few of my smartmedia cards suddenly died for no apparent reason. Unfortunately, that included two of my 32 meg cards. Luckily, the 64 is still as flaky as usual, meaning that it still works in the capacity that it did before (it’s the only one which is not made by Olympus, so I assume it’s a little odd because of that). Anyway, the camera is fine, but I can’t take too many pictures anymore (until I purchase new cards, at least). It’s strange that the three oldest of the five cards I own all decided to stop working at the same time, almost like they were all programmed to expire on a given date.

Bottom line: A couple smartmedia cards are (slightly) less expensive than another new camera.
