Question about Fuji Finepix F31FD Digital Camera
I have had my Fuji camera for a month and a half. Today I was experimenting with the high speed shooting mode and all of a sudden when I took a shot "write error" came up. Then, when I went into playback mode, all of my photos that I had previously taken were gone. I took the xd card out of the camera and put it into my computer which has Adobe Photoshop Elements. All of the pictures came up as being on the card. I then reloaded it into my camera and then pressed the power button, NO POWER. The battery was not dead because there were still two bars on display when I was experimenting with the high speed mode. I continued to press power and the camera would do nothing. So I took out the battery and reinserted it and now everything is fine. Any theories on this glitch? My concern is if I can now trust this camera. I have a Sony compact and have never had any glitch problems whatsoever, so this is new to me.
As it was a write error, it could be that your card is corrupted. What you could do is to backup all of the images from the card to your computer, then re-format the card in the camera, so at least all your images are safe. Then, if the problem occurs again, contact Fuji.

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.

Turn camera from "off" to "play" ( photo view..._
Pressing the “MENU/OK” button as you would to erases files. There is an option to format the xD-Picture Card. Formatting erases protected files, but allows you to then take photos.
