Question about Fuji FinePix A330 Digital Camera

512 MB card problem

I have a A330 Fuji camera. The 16mb card that came with the camera works fine. I just purchased a new 512 mb card. The first picture I take is fine but when I try to take more pictures I get at "READ ERROR" message. When I try to look at the picture I took a "READ ERROR" message appears. I formatted the card through the camera but the problem still happens. I do not have a card reader to format it with. What seems to be the problem? Thanks

If the new 512mb xD card has a prefix of "H" or "M" before the 512, it is not compatable with your A330 unless a firmware upgrade is performed on the camera. You can download all the details here

All of them will work just fine. The main difference is that a larger card will let you take more pictures.

Just purchase a 512mb memory card for my Fuji A330 I am able to take one picture but when I attemp to take a second picture in get the message "Write error" and it will not record that picture. ...

The A330 was first introduced in March of 2004 when a 512mb memory card would have cost more then the camera. First thing to mind with this problem has the "new" 512mb card been formatted to this camera? You may want to format the card twice and try it again. I know this may sound odd but even with my "older" Pro camera (5 Years) I had to download new updates to allow it to accept anything beyond an 4gig Memory card

Fugi S5000 2gb xd M+ Computer says it's not formated

Yes, it would appear that you solved your own problem. The Fuji S5000 apparently only takes the max of 512 mb card. I own a newer Fuji S700 and it works fine with a 2 gb SD card, but I haven't tried anything bigger. Your best bet is to see if you can exchange those 2 gig cards for 512 mb cards at the store where you purchased them, and then try the 512's to see if your pc will read the pics. Explain to the store what the problem is and they should allow you to make the exchange.

M512 MB card dosen't work

I bought a 256MB card a few years back and had the same problem. I had to upgrade the camera's firmware to version 1.77. I went to Fuji's site under archived models and downloaded the zip file for it. now my card works pretty well... only problem now with the camera is that it likes to eat more and more batteries.. age perhaps???

Nikon Coolpix 4600: Problem: It won't take any photos, it reads: THIS CARD CANNOT BE USED. The card is 128 MB. I purchased a new card: 2GB but it won't work also. My manual says to clean the contacts...

1) Have you formatted the cards?

2) Try the cards in the card reader in your computer to see if they can be read.

3) Try the "switch off camera - remove and replace battery - switch on camera" trick with the original 128 Mb card in place. This will reset the camera's memory.

4) Note the type of card is important - not all cards can be used in a camera (especially some of the latest bigger ones) - check the type of cards supported by your camera.

I found this at the Nikon USA site (note that the 2 GB card is not listed - as said "Cards are not all the same" and use different drivers to operate them):

Question Which Secure Digital Cards are approved for use in the Coolpix 4600/5600? trnsp.gif Answer The Nikon Quality Department has tested the following cards and approved their use in the Coolpix 4600/5600:

SD memory cards:
SanDisk 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB, 512MB*, 1 GB
Panasonic 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB*,1 GB
Toshiba 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 128 MB*, 256 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB

*High speed type of 10 MB/s or over

Other brands and capacities of cards may work, but Nikon cannot guarantee their operation. Check with the manufacturer of the third-
party card for compatibility information. Nikon recommends keeping one of the approved cards available for troubleshooting.

Memory Problem

have you tried formatting the card first within the camera, as it may be corrupt, or try it in a card reader and format that way.
