Question about Fuji FinePix A400 Digital Camera

Fuji A200 xD card uninitialized

The cord came out just before downloading and the card is uninitialized. The directions say re-initialize -- great - how? No tab on left side of card - just a notch.

OK There are 3 problems that  a company like Fuji should have avoided:
1. Directing one to "re-initialize" the chip and not providing any directions for doing so.
2. Calling it "initializing" in the menu and "formatting" in the camera menu.
3. Building a camera that blitzes the chip when the USB cord is accidentaly disconnected without following the ritual.
The FIX: Turn the camera on. > Switch from the red camera icon to the green arrow icon on the ring around the shutter button. > Press the "menu/OK" button. > Under the "Erase" menu, scroll up to "Format." Press "Menu/OK" button. > Re-format (aka "re-initialize') the chip and lose all images stored on it. Whoppeee!

You should try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your XD card, here are some for your options.

Photo Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Recovery for Mac

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

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

How do I initialize a new xD 2GB memory card for my A330 Fuji FinePix camera?


Your A330 is not compatible with the XD cards that start with an "H" or a "M" before the XD designation, unless you perform a firmware upgrade. You can do it yourself using this link from Fuji Canada. http://www.fujifilm.ca/x13573.xml

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

Initializing xd card


Put the camera into play or review mode then hit the ok/menu button on back and format the card. This will erase all of your photos so make sure you've backed them up or download them.

It's not the camera - my Fuji xd memory card


Look for the FORMAT Disk routine.
Consult the owners manual to find out how to get there, would be the easiest way.
