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!

16mb memory card says full only 2 pictures on card


If it really is just 16MB, then, that's about right for that camera.

You need to use about a 4GB -- that Gigabyte card to be able to hold many pictures.

16MB is just too small.

Hi, I have got an Olympus mju 300 Digital camera, and I have bought a 2GB XD Type M+ memory card, however when I put the 2GB memory card in, it takes the camera a good 15 seconds to start up, whereas with...


There are several reasons why could happen:

1. 2GB is a lot of space compared to 16MB. The camera checks the card each time you switch it on.
2. Card is corrupt & should be reformatted.
3. Card is defective & should be replaced.

Photo storage?


It depends on the picture resolution and the size of the memory card.
Normal JPEG 2048 x 1472 : 11.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Fine JPEG 2496 x 2016 : 19.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Normal JPEG 2048 x 1376 : 19.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Fine JPEG 2496 x 2016 : 9.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Normal JPEG 2048 x 1472 : 9.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Normal JPEG 2048 x 1376 : 35.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Fine JPEG 1024 x 736 , Fine JPEG 1024 x 736

The capacity of various memory cards will be similar to the above ratios.

I hope this helps.

I keep getting the error card not recognized when trying to use an Olympus M+ xd 2gb memory card. How large of a memory card will this camera support?


From what i know and i own a Fuji FinePixA360.According to the Manual 1gb is the highest amount of memory listed.Also you can not put a M+ (high speed) card in the camera will read error.Bascially the Fuji is an older camera and was designed for 1gb and must use the "M" xd picture card (DPC-M1GB) .Thats all the higher memory that was available when the camera was manufactured.I don't know if a 2 gb memory card will work but if you do try one make sure its the older M NOT M+.Hope this helps someone,Gary Malcontent

Memory card


Its an sd card right?
because if its a bigger square Compact Flash Card you could a bent pin.
I wouldnt buy another car if you have a new one and they both give the same error.
I would suggest takeing it to a repair person if there is one near where you live. I would have to see the camera myself to be able to know for sure what was wrong.
But If you can afford to then I would really suggest getting a new one before your next trip. As even if My quick fix worked or if it started working again It could start failing again in the middle of the trip.

Have you tried formatting the card?

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.

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.

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