The easy answer is..... 2 Gb.

The longer answer entails fat16 vs fat32 abilities, and the posibility of reformatting your card on the computer in an attempt to possibly get the s7000 to recognise it with mixed success. Since the s7000 is fat16, it can recognise only 2Gb of data.

The xD cards max out at 2Gb. CF goes much higher, but only 2Gb will be recognized.

On a related note, if you do continuous shooting or movies and use an xD card, make sure you get the H-type (not M or M+) as this is higher speed and will avoid timing issues. All of the newer CF cards are plenty fast already.

Is there another memory card besides an xd that can be used in the s7000 camera?


Not a memory card, but something called a MicroDrive, which is actually a miniscule disk drive in a package about the size of a memory card. I don't know if these are even made anymore, though, and in any case, the largest size compatible with this camera is 1GB. You can easily get an XD card that size instead.

Fuji's compatibility chart is on THIS LINK

What media card does fujifilm digital camera S7000 use


You have a choice. Your Fuji S7000 accepts both xD cards and CF cards (Compact Flash).

xD cards to a maximum capacity of 512MB are supported, and you can also use CF cards to a maximum capacity of 1GB, but in my experience the camera was a bit unreliable when using 1GB cards so it's best to go no larger than 512MB even with CF.

CF cards are cheaper, more widely available and have faster transfer rates than xD. If you accidentally delete or reformat the card or if it gets corrupted in any other way then it's far easier to recover useful data from a CF card.

512MB cards are no longer widely available in shops but are still easy to buy online. Alternatively, you may wish to ask friends and relatives or ask on your local FreeCycle/Freegle groups as 512MB is now largely obsolete and have no resale value so many folks have them lying around in drawers and dead cameras. Just make sure to reformat them by using the erase function in your camera before trying to use them. You'll find out how to do so on page 71 of this free download of your user manual. (It was scanned at two pages per screen, so you'll find page 71 on page 36 of the .pdf document).

I hope that you have found my reply to be comprehensive and useful. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

As I am scrolling through the pictures on the camera, a "read error"message comes up. This is occuring with all of the memory chips - even the new ones so I do not think it is a chip problem. Can you offer...


you have two slots for memory cards .. one for XD and one for CF .. if you have trouble with one slot then you can try the other type card ..

if you are using a CF card or micro drive .. then look into the slot where they normally go .. look for bent or missing pins .. some CF memory cards don't have much of a "lead in taper" on their connector .. sometimes they will snag a pin and bend it, push it out of place or break it ... sometimes you can straighten it but replacing a broken pin is a big job .. usually the whole connector will be replaced if its sent in for repair .. if you have trouble with the CF slot you can instead use a XD memory card .. or visa versa .. the little LED flashlights are ideal for looking into the memory slot...
make sure you format any new memory cards in the camera before use .. that should pick up any problems and makes sure the card is compatable with the system ..

Card not initalized


Is the card larger than 2GB.
If so its too big for the S7000.
The only solution to more capacity is 2GB xd card + 2GB compact flash card.
Or just use as many XD cards as you need.

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!

Can't initialize SanDisk Ultra II for S7000


It looks as though the camera cannot support memory as high as 4GB. Capacities above 2.2 GB require that your camera supports "FAT32", and S7000 does not support FAT32.

CF Excessive Power


Nikons and Fujis keep the CF slot powered, and "poll" it every now and then to see if a card has been removed or inserted. So yes, a camera may drain batteries much faster with a CF card than it does with an XD. But if it really does do this, then someone at Fuji deserves to be on the street, looking for a new job. Polling a card every few seconds does not have to be a traumatic experience to the camera. A Nikon can sleep for months, and not show appreciable battery drain. After what I've seen in the horribly slow CF write times of the S3, and the large artificial difference in write times between CF and xD on that camera, I'd say someone (or several "someones") at Fuji is doing everything in their power to make CF look bad and steer people into xD.
