Format the memory card. Make sure your format the card each time you finish uploading your pictures to your computer, instead of simply deleting pictures.
If you can't format the card, try another card.

Ive been using the xd card on my fuji finepix s5200 for many times and today when I was about to upload the pictures in my laptop the card says it has to be initialized. How do I initialize a card and if...

I hate answering a question with a question but can't see a way around this. Are you using the camera to download pictures to the computer? If so what you need to do is purchase a card reader and I would suggest a card reader that does many different memory card types.

What this card reader does is steps completely around your camera and downloads pictures directly to your computer.

The Card Reader plugs into a USB port on your computer and looks at the reader (once the memory card is inserted) like an external mass storage device or external hard drive.

You then download the pictures from the reader/memory card to a file you create on your computer.

The nice thing about this is that it won't matter what camera you have or memory card you use the camera is no longer in the flow of pictures downloaded to the computer.

After the pictures are on the computer you can put the memory card back in the camera and "Format" the card this function is normally found in the set up menu.

Trying to upload pics with my card reader and it says the pictures aren't supported, so they won't upload...any ideas why? Just uploaded from another camera

sir the memory card that you have in your camera do not allow pics to upload.Because the card that we put in the camera only allow picture to download from it.It will not allow pics to upload to it.If you want to upload pics to your camera try after putting a micro SD card.For that you should buy a micro SD adapter.After putting micro SD into that adapter you can put that into your camera.Then it will allow both uploading and downloading.

Take the memory card from your camera - put in a card reader (most of now days laptop have it bundled, or use external card reader) - plug the card reader to your PC - copy the pictures via Windows Explorer- open facebook - upload pictures from PC's hard disk - finally, enjoy your uploaded pictures in facebook !!

Hope this help and be kind to rate please, thank you.

Regardless of the brand of your camera, place the card (xD in most Fuji models) in the reader. ensure that card is readable ("My Computer" initial screen).
The uploading package will likely display all pictures.
If the all pictures you want are contiguous, click on the first picture that you want to upload, hold the Shift key and click on the last pictures you want to upload. release Shift.

My Finepix Z (fujifilm) digital camera memory card isnt working

It is unlikely that the card is causing any of the other listed problems. Some other factor is involved here.

Dealing with the card situation first:

Invest in a card reader that connects to the PC. Upload your photos to the pc. Then format the card.

Make sure the battery is fully charged insert the card and see if the controls are now active. Non responsive controls are 9/10 caused by a low battery power which locks out the functions.

Memory card not initialising

Same answer I just gave to someone else. The first thing to do is to try to copy any data that is already on the card before you put it back into the camera and initialize it! Otherwise you will lose every photo on the card!

Once you are sure that you have copies of the photos, or that there is nothing in there that you can recover, put it back into the camera, go into the camera's menu, and select format or initialize, and let it do its thing.

Another solution would be to put that card aside in case you can later recover the images from it, and buy a new card to use in the camera. This holiday season you can get a one or two gig card for nearly nothing!

Memory card fault or camera fault?

When the camera writes the image files to the memory card, it also creates index/information files. Without those files the camera will not display the images.

Check the software you used to upload the images with. There's probably a checkbox or option that tells it to delete the images from the card after uploading them.
