Formatted the card on windows via my computer. Format to FAT and did not select quick format option. Took about 5-10 seconds. Card is working fine now.

XD card What is the biggest card my FujiFinePix 3800 can handle?


FinePix 3800 can handle any xD Picture Card size.
Unfortunately the largest ones are only 2 Gb
Here a chart of all available sizes, speeds
and approximate number of photos that can be taken on each.
Tested the xD 2Gb H & M+ on my own 3800 and both work great.

Not initialized or card error


If your new card has an "H" or "M" before the 1Gb, your camera is probably not compatable with it unless a firmware upgrade is performed. This can be done by the user, with help and the software download from Fuji' website.

Initializing of xD-Picture card


The S3000 has a 512MB limit according to Fuji. Ther is also no firmware upgrade to address this issue. However I loaded a 1GB Olympus M type card into th S3000, which was pre-fornatted and worked straight away. After putting the card into the reader in my laptop, and then returning to the camera, the camera identified the card as not initialized. I tried to format the card in the camera but this didn't work.

To fix this I connected the camera to the computer using the USB cable located the camera card via My Computer, left clicked on and did a quick format in FAT (FAT16). After this the camera read the card and indicated 1305 frames available at 3M.

Xd picture card


You will need to do a firmware update to be able to use your new 'M' XD card. Also you will need a AC adapter to be able to use the update for your camera.
It is a Fuji site and it works.
Good luck.

I cannot get card to work in my fuji finepix a 340 says write error inserted Olympus Xd picture card . ASfter attemting to take picture, rec'd message that it could not initialize.


If your new xD card is an "H" or "M" type card, it is only compatable with the A340 following a firmware upgrade to the camera. http://www.fujifilm.ca/x3721.xml is a link to the software and steps you can take to perform the upgrade.
