    Thanks FlashyBits... that makes a whole lotta sense. Can't locate the manual as I haven't used this outdated thing in awhile. Walmart cam guy said that would be it but sold me a 1gb in lieu of 2gb so I guess I'll check on the 512.... Thanks again

The problem may be due to the size of the cards you are using. The manual for this model only mentions cards up to 512mb in card size as compatible ones. On the Fujifilm's website there is a compatiability chart which does state that the camera can accept up to 2 GB but that some cameras might have to have a firmware upgrade to do so (there is a list of serial numbers at the bottom of the chart to check your camera against.
The link for this is......

Hopefully this will help (& not barking up the wrong tree!)

Inserted 4G memory card...says memory card is full...when I try to format the card, get filesys error e00100.....


The C330 uses MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into SD slots, they are electronically incompatible and won't work. You need to go with cards 2GB and smaller.

I bought a canon powershot SD1300 IS camera yesterday. I inserted a 2 GB memory card in to the slot. when i switched on the cam It displays a message no memory card. what should i have to do?


I'm assuming you went through the setup procedures (setting date, time, etc). If you tried to shoot any pics with no card in the camera, you now have pics on the internal memory. You need to get rid of those by going into the menu and finding "format". Then, insert your new card (making sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position) and do the "format" thing again to optimize the new card for the camera.

Is San Disk memory card compatible with Digimax 401 ? I inserted one and got the message card errior.


Hi,
SD Memory Card is compatible with your Digimax 401 camera. You just need to format the card.
Formatting a memory card
** This is used for formatting the memory card. If you run [FORMAT] on the memory card, all
images, including the protected images, will be deleted. Be sure to download important
images to your PC before formatting the memory card.
** If the memory card is not inserted, the internal memory will be formatted.
** Be sure to format the memory card if you are using a newly purchased or non-initialized
memory card, if it contains data that the camera cannot recognize, or if it contains images
captured with a different camera.

Formatting a Memory Card
1. In any mode other than Voice Recording mode, press the MENU button.
2. Press the LEFT/ RIGHT button and select the [SETUP] menu tab.
3. Select the [FORMAT] menu by pressing the UP/ DOWN button and press the RIGHT button.
4. Select a desired sub menu by pressing the UP/ DOWN button and press the OK button.
- If [No] is selected : The memory card will not be formatted.
- If [Yes] is selected : A [PLEASE WAIT!] message appears and the memory card will be formatted. If you ran FORMAT in Play mode, a [NO IMAGE!] message will appear.

I purchased a Sony cybershot DSC- S930 and inserted the Lexar memory stick (supposedly compatible with a sony camera) and upon turning the camera on there is an error message stating there is not internal...


Hello,
The camera does not recognize the card because

1. Card not compatible
2. Camera cannot handle such a large capacity.
3.Card not inserted correctly.
Maybe a recent firmware update can address the 2nd limitation.

Hope it helps.

Problem with new memory card


Hi,

I read an article about the same problem.....
Ill tell you the information about it.....

There are few situations when you find that your memory card is not functioning as expected and instead of data, you are getting few error messages:

· “CARD ERROR”
· “ Memory Card Error”
· “Card Not Initialized”
· “Read Error”

Display of either error message forces the user to think of solution as the affected memory card may be the house of the relevant digital data including photos, videos and audios.

Most of such error messages are curable through formatting the card.
As you said you have tried this already but no success......

So your card is suffering from the problem that the card is corrupt harshly.

This is the worst defect in the memory cards......So better get it changed..

The memory card corruption reveals that the data will remain inaccessible as formatting has failed to cure the issue. So the best deal would be to have photo recovery software. Photo recovery is also required in case of formatting success.
Picture recovery is quite practical through photo recovery software which benefits the users through their scanning ability and power to address each specific case of photo loss.........



Hope my info helps you.........
Thanx
