Question about Fuji Digital Cameras

1 Answer

We own a Fuji Digital camerca model S700 and recently purchased a 1 gig memory card. We were taking photos on the weekend (photos which now can't be replaced) and we had a card error come up and the camera completely froze. My husband took the camera back to Shopeers Drug Mart where we had originally purchased the camera and memory card and they suggested we contact you directly. These photos which we took were of our Granddaughter and her Great Grandparents which are irreplaceable. Is there anything we can do? Penny Kinghorn Fergus, Ontario

First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off) and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems.

You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should appear as a “Removable Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec

If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many.
One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:

http://www.lc-tech.com/software/prwindetail.html

You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying.

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!

Take a small flash light and see if there is a part of a memory card in there, if there is cleaning it out would solve the problem. Also make sure you're putting the memory card in the right way. I've you've done that and it's still giving you problems try going into the menu's and formatting the memory card in the camera.

Can't move photos from internal memory to memory card


Yes, it can be done. Here are the steps to copy them over:

1. Turn on your camera
2. Press the button to view the pictures you have taken (the button that has the green sideways triangle with the green square around it).
3.Press the Menu/Ok button
4. Arrow down to "Copy"
5. Press the Menu/Ok button
6. To copy the photos from the internal memory to an SD card simply hit Menu/ok button again.
7. Arrow down to "All Frames" and then press Menu/Ok
8 It now asks you to confirm. To continue copying the pictures over, press Menu/Ok again.
9. It will now begin copying your pictures over.

There you go. Hope this helps!

Format and Check SD card


Purchase an inexpensive card reader such as the Ativa, available at Staples and Office Depot for $9.95. Put your memory card with the photos on it into the reader and plug it into a USB port on your computer. Windows will recognize it as another drive and assign it a drive letter. Using any graphics program, or Windows Explorer, navigate to that drive, open the file containing the pics, click select all, and copy the pics to a file on your computer. Make sure that all the pics have transferred or copied to the new file. Replace the card back into your camera and format the card so it is empty and ready to receive new pics. FYI: Less than 1 gig memory cards are available on ebay for dirt prices. Also, go to the camera manufacturers website and see if they have a firmware update for your camera that allows larger than 1 gig cards to be used. I had to do that for my Fuji S700 so I could use 4 gig cards. It used to max out at 2 gigs. If this has solved your problem please rate it accordingly. Good luck.

Finepix s7000 new 4gb card not initialized fujifilm cf


The S700 as it came from the factory CANNOT use a 4 gig card. You must go to the Fuji USA website and download the firmware update. You will need to have the program that came with the camera installed, and the cable that also came with the camera. Make sure that you have fresh batteries in the camera. Instructions are on the Fuji website along with the download for the firmware. You are actually going to "flash" the firmware in the camera just as if you were doing a BIOS flash in your computer. Personally, I only use smaller cards and remove the pics soon after I take them. A 2 gig card will hold about 150 full rez pics. Get them out of the camera....don't save them forever on the card!

I can't save images from my Fuji S5700 to my


Try removing the memory card and reading it through a card reader inserted into a USB port. Have you installed the program that came with the camera? I never used mine because I have other high end graphics programs and I always use a card reader instead of the cable. You WILL need the program if you want to do a firmware/BIOS update in the S700, and also the cable. The S700/5700 will only accept up to a 2gig memory card. If you want to use a 4 gig card, the camera (and also your computer) won't recognize the card until you do the update to the firmware. Available with instructions from FujifilmUSA website.

Can the s700 support a 8gb card


Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

The maximum RECOMMENDED by the manufacturer is 2gb. But that doesn't mean you can't give it a shot. Not too much is going to happen. The only thing that may happen, is that it might not format properly. Remember, you have to fomat the card IN the camera before you use it. And...remember you can only use XD and SD cards. Have fun with your camera.

Fuji S700


I have this camera and was able to use a "HP Invent" 4GB SDHC card. It worked fine. Although when I insert it tells me at first I have 70 minutes of video and then changes to 39 minutes. However when I recorded I was able to use all 70 minutes. Not sure if other brands or even high GB would work. I am still experimenting myself.
