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
Try removing batteries and card and leaving them out for a while to allow camera settings to default.
Replace batteries only and see if you get "Card Error" message.
If you get this, then try again with card fitted
Check firmware version
Possibly card storage too big. Upgrade firmware to version 1.77
If you have no user manual there is a PDF version available to download here:
I bought a new memory card for my finepix A330 camera When I turned on the camera after putting in the new card, the screen read "card not initialized" and won't take photos.my son is going holidays 13/9/08 could you help me please Alex Richardson
Are you trying to use a new xD memory card?
The A330 will only accept xD cards with no small letters before the disk size.
I have a card "H512MB" and can't use that one.
There is a firmware upgrade to allow you to use a "M512MB" card.
You can see what version of camera firmware you're using by following the instructions here:
Also tells you how to download the upgrade to use type "M" xD cards.
I've solved it. I'll bet a buck you also bought a memory card reader. If you hook the memory card (or camera) to a computer, you'll see a directory with a name like fuji_999. After you download the pictures delete that directory from the memory card, and the problem's solved. I just did it with a 1 gig xd card in my daughter's fuji 480. It had a main directory on the card called DXsomething, and 2 subdirectories, fuji_100, and fuji_999. I deleted all three directories (after saving the photos), and the problem is gone. Hope it works for you.
