As I noted above, I have another post on this forum which documents very similar symptoms I experienced with an Olympus E-PL1. In my case I opened a ticket with Eye-Fi support and after a bit they diagnosed my issue as a faulty card. I have yet to receive the replacement card they are sending out, but once I have a chance to test it out, I'll update my post.
If you haven't already done so, I would suggest you reach out directly to Eye-Fi support.
Experienced the same today, Write Protect Error with E-PM1. Firmware 1.0 on camera, EyeFi X2 Pro with latest firmware. Also noticed much slower overall performance with Olympus cameras, with Sony TX10 I get photos almost immediately on computer in direct mode, with Olympus it takes more than half a minute.
Just wanted to update my situation (described above). As I noted above, I was sent a replacement card. This card worked flawlessly for the past month until yesterday, when I began experiencing the exact same symptoms as before ("Card Error" and "Write Protect" messages on the camera and the inability to either view of take pictures).
I had recently downloaded all of the images off the card and (after making sure I had them backed up), I cleared the contents of the Eye Fi card by formatting it in my camera (a practice that has been recommended to me by Olympus). As I think back, this may have been the first time I cleared the card in this manner since receiving the replacement. It was 2-3 shots after I did this that the errors recurred, so I'm thinking it's probable that there is some connection. I've e-mailed EyeFi support about this issue.

Yep, we are working on improving the firmware including what you are describing with your E-PL1. Another firmware update for our beta program will be available next week, I am hoping this will adress the problem you are describing.
Hey guys, we are working on a new release and will update all beta users cards soon. We have a lot of changes coming that I thought were going to be released soon but proved to be a bit more challenging than expected to implement. Hang in there. =)
I understand what you are saying, you are right.. it has been over a month. This is why I don't want to offer an exact time because software development doesn't always work on a linear scale. I apologize for the delays, but please be assured that we are very actively working on the firmware and do plan to get new firmware out to our beta users as soon as we can. Sorry for any frustrations the delays have caused.
