Hi, On another brand/model, PC message "card error" indicates a problem with the memory card of the camera. A couple of things we tried to restore it: 1. Remove the memory card, wipe clean especially the gold contacts making sure that it is dry and shiny (also the battery if possible); 2. Blow into the opening/slot where the memory is inserted to remove any dust, dirt or even a bit moisture; 3. Let the camera and removed memory card sit for a while at room temperature; 4. Put everything back and try again; 5. If it still doesn't work, it is possible that for some unknown reasons, the memory card was corrupted. This would mean re-formatting it but of course that would mean erasing whatever pictures and/or data are stored inside; 6. Try a recovery software with a card reader to try and recover whatever is possible and format the card; 7. It is preferable to format the card using the camera rather than the PC; Sometimes just removing and reinserting the card works. Hope the above gives you an idea or two. Pls post back how things are or if you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

I have a FinePix A345 camera and have had it for years. I took pics all day today and then when I went to look at them tonight, my camera read "card not initialized" I can't retrieve or take...


First take the memory card out of the camera. Pictures that have been deleted are probably still there, but will be overwritten if you take any more pictures on top of them.

Your camera is not able to undelete pictures, but there are programs for doing this on a computer. You can put the memory card into a card reader attached to a computer, and use an undelete program to recover the deleted files. Undelete programs are available for free download from the internet, try the one at THIS LINK

If the pictures are very important to you, you might want to seek help from an experienced person.

Did you format the card in the camera before you tried to use it? Also, go into the menu and scroll to "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions.

Bad news. The A345 will only accept up to a 1gb xd card. Here's a link to Fuji's camera/card compatibility chart. http://www.fujifilm.ca/x7970.xml
Just highlight the address and paste it into your address bar.

How do I down load pictures to computer from A345 without


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Fuji Finepix XD card was being used last night


When you recieve a "Card Error" or "Card Not Initialized" message, this indicates that your memory may be temporarily corrupted. This can be due to not formatting your memory card on a consistent basis. Most consumers will use the "delete all" feature and continue to take pictures. By doing this, the file format of the card may become unstable.

We recommend formatting your memory card in your camera after saving the images from your previous shooting session. Once a memory card is formatted, the images will not be recoverable.

Memory card


yes Formatting will erase everything on the card. The 2 cameras probably use different formats or even different qualities. You should upload pictures before switching the card between cameras. Hope this helps
