How big of an XD card

I would like to know if there are any limitations to the size of xd card that will work in my FinePix S3000. The manual only references cards 512 or less. However, I have not found any smaller than 1 G.

Hi,

According to the Fuji web site, your camera can handle up to 2GB xD Picture Cards that are Type M, M+, or H.

Here is their complete compatibility list:

Will an8gb compact flash card work in my finepix m603 camera


Your camera can't Please don't try to put any SD card in your camera. It will destroy the camera. You camera only accepts xD cards. It is a complete different card size and works different.
There are xD micro drives, but I would not buy them. it is a very small HD and are not made for years. So if you find one, it is likely it is defect.
But if you can find a 1 Gb xD card, you can put lots and lots of pictures on it.


The manual is still online

The camera says memory is full but I have only taken about 20 pictures - the letters IN appear in the corner - camera is a finepix F31fd


You are taking pictures to the internal memory and not to the XD Picture Card. The internal memory will only hold about 20 pictures. You can buy an XD Picture card at Walmart or really any store that sells camera accessories. 256MB should be plenty.

You can also lower the resolution of your pictures and then the internal memory may hold maybe 32-40 pictures.

XD card What is the biggest card my FujiFinePix 3800 can handle?


FinePix 3800 can handle any xD Picture Card size.
Unfortunately the largest ones are only 2 Gb
Here a chart of all available sizes, speeds
and approximate number of photos that can be taken on each.
Tested the xD 2Gb H & M+ on my own 3800 and both work great.

Compact flash card adapter


You should just get one anyway they are very cheap and infinitely useful
if you have a new printer it might have an XD slot built in which is even better
it would allow you to take pictures from any XD card you have and put them on your computer OR you can take pictures from your camera and put them on your camera. They are faster than using the cable that came with the camera

Initializing of xD-Picture card


The S3000 has a 512MB limit according to Fuji. Ther is also no firmware upgrade to address this issue. However I loaded a 1GB Olympus M type card into th S3000, which was pre-fornatted and worked straight away. After putting the card into the reader in my laptop, and then returning to the camera, the camera identified the card as not initialized. I tried to format the card in the camera but this didn't work.

To fix this I connected the camera to the computer using the USB cable located the camera card via My Computer, left clicked on and did a quick format in FAT (FAT16). After this the camera read the card and indicated 1305 frames available at 3M.

Please read these/the 2 posts that I posted prior for a similar XD mem card problem, as I firmly believe you are "formatting" your mem card improperly using your home computer instead of "formatting" the card on your camera.

Also the XD type card & size are very important also!!

What you will have to do is read and download the photos you have on that XD card using the same "card reader" you used before and then properly "re-format" that card in your "CAMERA ONLY". This should solve your XD card problems.

PRIOR POSTS:

Kristina,

Not knowing what model Olympus camera you have, or how old it is - your new memory card "format" problem is one of 3 possibilities.

1st - If you have an older Olympus camera more then 4-5 years old the newer M & H series type cards over 256mb will probably not work in your older camera, as by the camera's internal firmware chip design of the camera itself. Some cameras were upgradeable some weren't as to the internal firmware chip as well as available software drivers depending on which computer OS system you were using ie: (WIN98SE, WIN2000, etc). Has to do with the memory card read/write chip speed as well, and also has to do with the physical storage size of the card itself. Some digital cameras were MAXED OUT at 512mb cards, some as low as 256mb. A 2gb card simple won't work in that/your camera in that case.

If you read the camera's user manual it will possibly tell you this, or else go online to www.olympusamerica.com and use this link:

View which cameras are compatible

Select camera model series and scroll down the model # and research the max card size & type you can use (3 basic XD card speed types available - regular XD - M type - H type).

If you are using the wrong type & size card you will need to return that card (if you can) and get the right XD size & type for your camera.

2nd - You should always FORMAT (same as ERASE ALL and FORMAT modes on most Olympus cameras) the new card, or any XD card for that matter in your camera itself. NOT THE HOME COMPUTER!!! The 2 format procedures are not the same!!

If you are re-shooting (re-using) the same XD card over and over again and then downloading the JPEG pix directly to the computer using a USB interface cable there usually is no need to re-format the card again as long as the XD card stays the camera and is not downloaded into a home computer via a "card reader". If you do the latter "card reader" then I would advise doing a card re-format in the camera again just to be safe!!

And lastly - If your home computer recognizes the XD card via a good "card reader" (do not FORMAT the XD card here btw, as you are just checking the card out to see it is GOOD is all), but the camera will not then that is a good sign your camera is OK, but it's just the wrong type & size XD card.

Hope this helps solve your camera XD problem not knowing which model you have.

Best regards,

Frank

AND:

Follow up to previous post:

I didn't have the time to access the exact link below to check on your specific 2004 model year camera because I missed the Fuji camera model part, as I'm brand new to this site - so please forgive my previous oversight here.

I was right though in my initial posted assumption that you bought the wrong XD memory card based on your Fuji FinePix A330 Digital Camera - as to it's older model year - in that your camera is limited to a 512mb memory card.

Make sure you buy the 512mb standard card if you still can find them. Otherwise check with Fuji Corp to make sure the M type card (faster read/write chip) will work in your specific model. The M type cards work just fine in my Olympus C-740 even though it was told to me they wouldn't work at all, but each digital camera is slightly different as to it's internal firmware (BIOS) chip.

See the following camera info for your specific model at the link below under Storage Media:

Steves Digicams - Fujifilm FinePix A330 - User Review

I hope this now clears up any prior confusion from the previous post.

Best regards,

Frank
