Memory card problems...Fuji FinePix A330

Hello, My boyfriend was using his camera fine with a 16MB card and then started using a M1GB card. After putting his M1GB card in his brother's camera (same exact camera), when it is put in his camera it says that the memory card has to be initialized. Have I lost these pictures forever? Please help. Thanks!!!

The A330 model is not compatible with the "M" type memory card until a firmware upgrade has been performed on the camera. It is a "D.I.Y" upgrade, available here http://www.fujifilm.ca/x7970.xml

Same thing happened to me.  I ran across a website that allowed me to download a free recovery program that looks at memory cards.  Thankfully this free program allowed me to recover all 232 pictures I had saved from a trip to Spain.

 

Here is the link I used.

Good luck!

Sometimes fine lines but other times like a burst of light. This just started happening recently. But when I take a picture in the dark with the flash the photo turns out fine. Any answer as to what caused this? Thanks

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.

How do I initialize a new xD 2GB memory card for my A330 Fuji FinePix camera?


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

Uji fine pix a 340 card not initialised


Using an A330 - turn on the menu... Burrow down to the set-up menu.  Then choose "format". 
I don't know how similar your menus and buttons are to my A330 - but this should be a good starting point.

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.

In order to use Type "M" xD cards, you need to upgrade the camera's firmware.

512 MB card problem


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 http://www.fujifilm.ca/x3720.xml

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.
