The cards can be formatted in a variety of ways, and your computer is more tolerant of this. If the card was previously formatted by a PC, or by a more advanced camera, it is possible to see the symptoms you describe. Try using the camera to reformat the card, and see if this solves your problem.

When i insert the xd card i get a message saying card error or card full even though the card is empty. any ideas on how to fix this or is time to replace it.

1) Try and clean the contacts on the card, soft dry cloth. I don't think you can get at the contacts in the camera, but you could give the card port a blast of compressed air if you got a can.

2) As the card is empty, try a re-format in the camera.

3) It could be you need a new card, a backup is always handy but if you can borrow one, try that first.

Memory error

Have you formatted the card in the camera before trying to use it? (download any pictures still on the card using a card reader if necessary).

New xd cad not working.

The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb or 2gb cards are not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage with that capacity. The camera came out before those cards did and there no plans to upgrade the camera to allow those types of cards to be supported.

Card error

Cladislaw, I don't know if this is the exact solution, but considering that your XD card is new, and as this one is not working I assume you old one was, it is likely that the card is not compatible to your camera.
Yes, the gammat of technology fails to find consistency in the simplest things: Not all XD cards are the same.
I think your camera uses an XD "M-type" card, now a days there's a new XD "H-type" card ('H' for high capacity) which are the same size but offer much larger capacity and storage speed.
If you've bought your new card from a reputable retailer, go see them and ask them to try another (of a different type and smaller capacity) and if it is the wrong one then they may offer to replace what you have.
There is the obvious, which we should cover - are you sure the card is inserted the right way. Also, check the contacts that they are not dirty or bent or tarnished (don't touch them with your fingers).
Hope this helps, but please let us know if it doesn't so we can follow up further.

XD Card - card error

To Gardner1

I'm afraid your camera is not compatible with the "M" or "H" cards of 2 GB according to Fuji.

Xd memory card

A card access error may indicate that an xD-Picture Card memory card is in a write-protected condition. xD-Picture Card memory cards have a special protection feature to ensure that your pictures are kept safe. NOTE: During this condition, you can still use the printer for printing and saving photos from the xD-Picture Card to a secure location, such as the computer hard drive. To resolve this error, try the following:
  • Reinsert the xD-Picture Card memory card into your camera and turn on the camera. In most cases, the camera automatically makes the necessary changes.
  • Reformat the xD-Picture Card memory card. See the documentation that came with your camera for instructions on reformatting the memory card. Note that this process erases the pictures currently saved to your memory card. To save these pictures, transfer them to the computer before reformatting the memory card. Once you reformat the memory card, transfer those photos back to the memory card using the computer.

Olympus SP-320 memory full when 1GB xD picure card in camara

If you download the photos that are on the internal memory to your computer, the next time you take photos it should go to the memory card that is loaded. It worked for me, so I hope that helps

No power

a blinking red light next to the viewfinder means one of the following:
It most likely is an xD-Picture Card Warning--meaning
no card inserted, card not formatted, incorrect format, card full, xD-Picture Card error (perhaps it was scratched when you removed it, or it received a shock.) If it looks dirty, clean it with a cotton cloth.
Have you touched your xD card? It is located in the battery area. You can either pull it out, or push it in and it pops out. Perhaps it wasn't pushed in all the way. Try that first. If that doesn't work, do you have another xD card to try? Maybe you can find the little one it came with--usually a 16 MB card. The 512 MB are pretty cheap these days online. I know that my card works whether or not it is formatted in the camera or by my computer, as I download all my pictures into my laptop with its card reader. If you did that, and erased the Fuji file the images usually sit in, you might have to download the card with a computer card reader, as the finepix software might not work. You will find loads of programs happy to download from a card reader--I like Windows live photo gallery. In fact, that is the ONLY thing I like about Vista. My camera then always reformats the xD card when I put it back.
One explanation: "The xD-Picture Card will work well for long time, but will sooner or later lose its ability to store and play
back images or movies. If this happens replace it
with a new xD-Picture Card."
If something is wrong with the xD card, an error message should appear on the LCD display. If you haven't fixed it with the info I;ve provided you, let me know what the error message says.
