    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.

    My 64gb card did the same, tried another one and problem solved. Taking the old card back.

    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.
