Finepix A605 XD card problem - HELP!!!!!

I have a Fuji Finepix A605 and have recently bought a new 1gb (M) xd card for it as I;m due to go on holiday in the next week or so. The camera tells me 'Card not Initialised', which I take to mean that it should be formatted. I have tried this and it appears to work. However, I then review my photo's and it tells me 'read error'. I turn it off then on again and have lost all photos and it goes back to the 'card not initialised' message. I have tried to re-format the card several times now but the same keeps happening. My 16mb card is fine!! I'm at my wits end......... Thanks. Simon.

Can you tell me what xd cards are compatible with finepix A605

There is no compatibility issues with devices that take SD cards. Although some cards might not be read by your computer, in which case you'll have to purchase an SD reader.

Hope this helps. :)

Keeps saying card not initialized why ?

It just means that you need to format a new card in the camera before it will work properly. Go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions.

Fuji a605 will not initialnize my new olympus 1gb card

That's because it will only accept a maximum 512MB xD card. See specifications on p.79 of the user manual.

Memory card won't work

Try this site for a firmware update. You need to get a AC power adapter for it to work though. It is from Fuji and it worked fine for my A120. The older XD cards are of a different format then the newer ones so if your new XD card has an 'M' on it you will need to do the firmware solution.
Good luck

Problem with new XD card

This could possibly be a problem with the card reader ..Just insert a different card and see if it works..If it reads other cards..then i advice that you get new card coz the recovery softwares and stuff r pretty expensive and will be a waste of money..
