If your new Xd card has the prefix "H" or "M" before the size, the A604 is not compatible with the card. As the 604 is (by today's standards) a fairly old camera, an internal "firmware" upgrade must be performed on it. For some models, the upgrade is possible for the camera owner to perform, but I believe, from past experience, that the A604 can only be upgraded by a Fuji service faciltiy. The older type of cards (without the H or M designation) are not readily available any more.

Keeps saying card not initialized why ?


It just means that you need to format a new card in the camera before it will work properly. Go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions.

I have a fujifilm finePix A345 camera and i am having trouble formatting the xD picture card. it's a 2GB card. do they work in this model of camera? i format the card but it still says card error.


Bad news. The A345 will only accept up to a 1gb xd card. Here's a link to Fuji's camera/card compatibility chart. http://www.fujifilm.ca/x7970.xml
Just highlight the address and paste it into your address bar.

I am getting a message that reads "card not initialized". It is a new XD picture card. How do I initialize the card?


To initialize the new XD card, you go into the camera's setup menu and navigate to the format function. Format the card and you might be ready to go. If your new card has an "M" or an "H" preceeding the XD, your camera will need a firmware upgrade before it will recognize the card. Here's a link to the firmware upgrade procedure. http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital/download/a340/fupd.html

Card no Initialized


If your new xD card has an "H" or an "M" before the 1gb, it is not compatible with your camera unless a firmware upgrade is performed (go to www.fujifilm.ca and follow the links for support to the firmware upgrade section). If the card doesn't have the H or M, you just need to format the card in the "set-up" menu of the camera.

I had the same problem and downloaded a firmware upgrade from the Fuji web site and it now works in the camera.

Memory card won't work


Try this site for a firmware update. You need to get a AC power adapter for it to work though. It is from Fuji and it worked fine for my A120. The older XD cards are of a different format then the newer ones so if your new XD card has an 'M' on it you will need to do the firmware solution.
Good luck

What type of xD card did you buy?  It needs to be a plain xD card with no letters before the file size or a type "M" card.  For type "M" you will need to upgrade the camera's firmware.
http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital/download/a330/fupd.html

This type of camera can't use type "H" cards, so cards like "H512mb" aren't going to work.
To initialize a card choose Menu. Arrow over to "Set", then arrow up to choose "Set-up". On screen "1" of the Set-up, arrow down to choose "Format".
This will ask you to erase all the images from the card, and format it.
Just today I upgraded my camera firmware to accept a type "M" card, initialized the type "M" card after that - and now it's working fine!
