  • LEGI Apr 30, 2009

    I to have had to purchase new xd card because my last one froze up. I was able to take that card to Costco and they were able to retrieve my photos. I re-formated but it still would take poicture but not let me review them or retreive them so I purchased a new card. It keeps saying that it is not initializing. I have tried formating and still comes up the same thing. Please help!

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

Purchased 8GB fijifilm card for A330 and can't insert it


The A330 uses xD Picture Cards, which top out at 2GB. Your 8GB card is some other type (most likely SDHC) which will not work in the A330.

I have purchased a 2GB XD memory card for my FinePix A330 camera. My camera is showing "Card not Initialized". Can you please inform me of the procedure I need to follow to initialize. Thanks


Your problem is that your camera is totally incapable of formatting an xD card of that large a capacity. You have an older 3.3 megapixel model designed when the maximum xD capacity planned was 512MB and the largest capacity available was 256MB.

Your camera will work with a maximum 512MB xD card but cannot use larger capacities. 512MB should be plenty though as on the fine setting it allows you to store about 330 images and on the normal setting it's 665 images. On the two video resolutions it's about 53.5 minutes and 182.5 minutes although on the lower resolution the battery would run out long before 3 hours!

There are no firmware updates to extend the capacity as it's a hardware limitation in the camera itself. Even if it could handle larger capacities then the camera would become very sluggish in operation. There's even a noticeable slowdown in camera response when using 512MB cards, so I recommend that you stick to a maximum of 256MB (you can always carry extra xD cards with you if you want additional capacity).

If you would like a free download of your camera user manual then click here for one from the Fuji website.

You only have two fixes: replace the xD card with a maximum 512MB capacity (preferably 256MB), or replace your camera with one of the recent models which accepts the 2GB xD card.

I hope that I have provided you with a clear explanation and practical options to fix your problem. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

I own a fuji finepix a330 camera, am very satisfied with performance I need an xD card. What is the maximum memory can this camera handle??? I purchased a 1GB card and the camera will not accept it


The camera is designed to accept up to a 512mb card. However, it can accept up to 2gb if you go to the support section of the Fuji website and download the firmware upgrade for your camera. Just be sure to follow the upgrade directions perfectly or you could end up with a dead camera. Don't worry, if you follow the directions, everything will be ok.

Memory cards in fuji a330


Yes it has to be an XD. They are physically different in size and shape. Although they both use JPEG photo formatting.

Card not initialized error! please help me


Olympus cards don't always work in Fuji cameras. Maybe not at all in older Fuji's.
You could try and update the firm ware in your camera and see if that does anything (if it's available on the Fuji website) Go to the service and support section on the web site and you may be lucky

What type of memory card are you using?  Is this a new problem since you've started using a new memory card?
The A330 can't use some of the newer types of xD cards.  These have letters before the file size like "H512mb" or "M1gb".
You can only use plain xD cards with no letter in front, like the small 8mb or 16mb card that came with the camera. Or, you can download a firmware upgrade to us type "M" xD cards. Read about that here: http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital/download/a330/fupd.html

Or, if a new memory card is likely not the problem, you could try re-initializing the card.  Make sure to copy any pictures from the card onto your computer first.  Re-initializing will erase all data from the card.
In the Menu, use the right button to go over to "Set".  Arrow up to choose "Set-up".  Then arrow down on the "1" screen to "Format".  It will step you through reformatting the card.
Hope this helps, -Kelly.

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: http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital/download/a330/fupd.html

Also tells you how to download the upgrade to use type "M" xD cards.
-Kelly.
