Yes, you'll need to format the xD Picture Card. You may be able to do this inside the camera in the options, if not - you'll need to connect it to your computer to get it to appear as a drive letter in "My Computer". Select the new drive in My Computer, this will be your card, right click it and click Format, then proceed to format it. This should sort your problem out.

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.

Initializing xd card

Put the camera into play or review mode then hit the ok/menu button on back and format the card. This will erase all of your photos so make sure you've backed them up or download them.

Xd picture card

You will need to do a firmware update to be able to use your new 'M' XD card. Also you will need a AC adapter to be able to use the update for your camera.
It is a Fuji site and it works.
Good luck.
