Using the Olympus C-770 movie mode- I can't record a movie much over 1 minute with MPEG4 (and sound). I have enough memory (1GB card) - I keep getting PICTURE ERROR, so what am I doing wrong??

Same problem here. According to http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_xdcompatibility.asp , it should work with C770, but it looks like we have a firmware problem here.

Please contact Olympus support, so they hear the problem from various sites.

I have the 770 and use a 512 card with no problems recording movies in mp4. Where did you get the card, and how much? I did not know them were out yet.

you can read on the olympus page that c770 movie can not write mpeg4 on 1Gb xD-Picture card...max capacity of the card is 512mb.

I've seen the cards advertised in weekly papers in the states over the past few weeks. Bestbuy has them currently for $119.99.
