Yes, it was the same config just pointing to a different image file.   
I've since tried "testdisk" and "photorec" and they both don't find 
anything on the Olympus card image, but continue to work on my phone 

It's not looking too good -- I'm hoping he brings the actual flash card 
back tomorrow and we can try a few other things.  Wish us luck!
