Re: read error

Try going to the fuji site and upgrading your drivers and firmware. Use your original XD card if still available.
Good luck

Re: read error

Please read all of post first!
try reformating thd sd card BUT remember everything on the card will be lost. I'v had that happen when I moved my card to another piece of equipment and then back again.
IF there ARE pictures on the card then try another card reader to pull them off before formating the card.
some copyers, scanners, even some pc's have readers in them, or maybe a freind.
hope that helps :)

I have an Akai DC6371 digital camera and the card I have in it is a Kodak 128mb SD card. However, the camera will only let me save 4 pics to the SD card. I tried putting a different card in it that's...

Hi I can tell that sometime you have to format within computer using external memory card reader, not from camera. It is not recommend switching around one sd card to another camera. It cause card error. If you want to use it, then you have to save pictures somewhere in other storage or computer, and format the one you want to use in computer using external memory card reader. And then one more time format in camera (you have to insert memory card into camera) These method very helpful on like your problem. If not working, then you have either camera defective or memory defective. Thanks and best regard!

What does read error mean and how to correct it?And get the pictures it seems to have misplaced.

Rhonda, You should remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into the card reader of the PC and move all pics to the PC. Then insert the card back into the camera and format it with the camera. Then whatever pics you take will be saved to the camera and be read by it too. Now for some reason the camera can not read the card. And if you want to use it then the camera should be able to read it. To do that you must first move the pics to some other place and once the pics are safe then the card can be forgotten.

Power switch fell off

Error the saving the image may require a firmware update to the camera. Go to for firmware and instructions on the update.

For the power button, I suggest you take apart the camera: Remove the 5 black and 1 silver screws and case is snapped together from the top. Doing so exposes the camera. Turn the black half of the case apart and inspect your button. The power button should snap back in. Just be careful that it may have (or had) a tab that held the power button in place. This tab may have broken off. Once the button is back in, assemble the camera and screw it shut.

If you save the pictures to the memory card instead of the internal memory there easy to get if something goes wrong with the camera.

Even Walgreens can retrieve pics off the memory card.

Memory card error

Try another card. The card can have a life limit, after all it is flash memory.
Also try to use the card in a card reader, not the camera. If that works, and you can save your pics... (remember never try to delete or change any of the pics. on the card from the computer, a lot better chance of corrupting the files...that may be due to the fact that the camera and the computer can be seeing different ways of making folders and reading them...just mention that because I had it happen... always format and delete all pics in only the camera you use that card in.)
If you are successful to transfer your pictures, then format the card in the camera, and see if it will work.
The final on this is that if the card will not format, and will not save pictures, then it is finished. You can try to use it in another kind of camera, sometimes that may work as well.

Yes your data card needs to be formatted or replaced. try formatting the card in the setup menu sometimes this helps. Hope this does the trick.
