4 GB SD card Will not format in my Fuji Finepix a820 camera.

I have followed the instuctions in the camera instruction book and find on screen after formatting ''card error''
I have only recieved the card today in the mail in an undamaged package so I do not think that that could be the problem. Neither has the card been touched across the connectors as instructed on the data sheet. Please can you suggest a solution. Could the card be faulty?

Your camera may not be able to use the SDHC 4gb memory card. Since I don't have which camera you have, I will have to refer you back to your instruction manual. Many older digital cameras and devices cannot use the Larger SDHC since they were never designed for that format card. I would recommend getting a smaller 2GB or less SD camera. It should work fine.

Card error 8GB how do I fix it


The A820 works with SD cards, which are limited to 2GB in size. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I bought a tevion 4 GB SDHC card but it wont work in my finepix a820 camera


Sorry, but the A820 was designed before the newer SDHC format card came out. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format its uses is very different. Sorry, but there's just no way that you can make an SDHC card work with your camera. You'll need to use a standard SD card only, those 2GB or less. Fortunately, 2GB standard SD cards are relatively inexpensive these days, as you can see from this link from Amazon.

For others reading with similar problems, but different cameras, there are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

HOW DO YOU INITIALIZE PICTURE CARD FOR A FUJI FINEPIX A330 CAMERA


"initialize" means to format the card in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics first using a card reader if necessary. Then, with the card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" or "initialize" and follow the on-screen instructions.

I have put a 4gig sd card in my finepix a900 and it keeps saying "card error"


Hello :

Look for a tiny switch on the side of the SD card . This switch indicated [ Lock or Unlock ] . You need to unlock it . If that didn't help , then you need to format the SD card before using it . If that didn't help also , then the problem is with your Camera and not with the SD card . there also must be a sensor in the [ reader on the camera ] which detects the position of the switch. Maybe there is dirt in the sensor. The best way to check would be to try another SD card . but you could try blowing out any possible dirt and see if that fixes the problem . If that didn't help , then you need to format your 4giga SD card before inserting it inside your Camera .

Fuji FinePix A820 Won't reset


Hello,
To solve this problem you need to use the SP shooting mode.
Replace battery with new High power ones. and switch ON keeping pressed the PLAY Button.
If still does not retract disable the flash and repeat the operation without the XD/SD Memory Card inserted. It will then close the shutter magic.
Regards,
PDG
