I have had an S7000 for almost 5 years now. I have used the same 512 XD card and all of the sudden it will not let me download pics off the card.
I have always used a card reader, so first thought, card reader gone bad (afterall I could view my pics off the camera) So I bought a new card reader being the cheaper of the two possible problems.
That failed, so I went and got a new card. That failed as well.
Got the same result. Computer said that both card readers were working properly. But when I inserted the xd card into the reader the computer prompt me to format. So when I tried to format it gave me an error saying unable to format.
Now I have pics I need to download on two different cards and with two different card readers.
How after almost 5 years and no changes can this start now?
May sound naive to you, but sometimes, particularly in XD card, when it is not being read by a card reader or camera, just try to wipe it's Copper plates firmly with your thumb and try again. Repeat the process. It happened with me and i tried it accidently once, and it worked, and it has worked many times. Don't scratch the copper plates, just wipe with ur thumb. Hope it works for you too. Good Luck.

Get an inexpensive card reader and use it to download your pics to your computer. Then, format the card in the camera to erase and initialize it. It should work properly then and your pics will be safely stored on your computer.
Yes, it would appear that you solved your own problem. The Fuji S5000 apparently only takes the max of 512 mb card. I own a newer Fuji S700 and it works fine with a 2 gb SD card, but I haven't tried anything bigger. Your best bet is to see if you can exchange those 2 gig cards for 512 mb cards at the store where you purchased them, and then try the 512's to see if your pc will read the pics. Explain to the store what the problem is and they should allow you to make the exchange.
As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased,lost or corrupted. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge. http://www.z-a-recovery.com/ You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and many people have had much success in recovering lost images.
Data recovery is a booming industry, and many appropriate services and software can be found by searching regional phone and business directories or the Internet for terms such as "image recovery" or "data recovery".
Deleting or formatting won't make the data in xd card erased permanently.
Those deleted data is still stored on the xd card, it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of xd card .
So as long as those data are not overwritten by new data, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.
Try asoftech data recovery program, which can recover data after deeply scanning your xd card drive to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted.
Try to use a card reader instead. They are only a few dollars. I use one all the time, and hardly ever will use the camera on different models I have. Never delete from the PC to the camera. It can cause corruption. Once corrupted, you may lose all pictures on the card. Always delete from the camera, unless you will format the card anyway. Use the camera and try to delete the bad picture from the camera. this may fix the problem, if not, try to read from another camera or a card reader...don't ever delete from another camera or the card reader.
The last is not good, and that means to format the card, and you will lose all which is on the card. You may try to copy to internal memory.
One more thing... take out the card. reset all in the camera menu. Then reset all the things you like. Put the card in and try to read each picture in play mode only. If one picture is very slow, delete it. This may take some time as corrupted files may read slowly. then try again.
According to Fuji you camera can only use cards up to 512 meg. Look here: http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/accessories/card/index.html#compati Scroll down to find your model, then look across the row to where it says Yes, it's under the red coloumn 16 to 512 meg.
its the card not the camera.
i think you fingers have come into contact with the gold bits on the xd card.
try wipping the card and putting it in several times,if all fails buy your self an olympus 1gb xd card H TYPE. firstname.lastname@example.org
the best compact of all time was the Olympus C-70 Zoom Camera which can be found 2nd hand over ebay.
i think it's just 'cos of the sheer size of the memory it has to access.
mine works quite quickly but when i put in a 512 it takes a lot longer
i would not say there is anything wrong - just teh limitations of a device which was designed when even 128MB was a luxury
