    I just bought my omd camera and inserted a scandisk 32gb. The screen says card error. I can get it to work but it has come up again and I'm worried this might happen all the time. Anything I can do to fix this? Thanks.

    If for some reason they will not take it back, put it back in the camera and reformat it (in-camera). I realize that this may not give you the warm-tummy-feel you are looking for, but personally, I would trust it. And there are recovery apps on the web that can salvage images from questionable cards. Just always carry a spare.
