128MB SmartMedia problem using Oly 3030

Can any gurus out there help me? I am using a 128MB SmartMedia card in my Oly 3030. When I turn the camera on with this 128MB card in it, with the settings I have chosen, it says I should get 163 photos on the card.

My problem: When I get down to about image 85, the camera's writing
feature "hangs" (meaning the camera continues to try to write the
image, but the red light -indicating writing is taking place- just continues and
continues and continues to blink & no writing actually takes place).
At this point the camera also starts to beep and I can not take any
more photos with that card in the camera. The photos already taken
are stored on the card, but no more can be added.

Does the 3030 not recognize the total capacity available on a 128MB
card or what is my problem?

Cards are formatted in camera.
