I have a Fujifilm picture card with pictures on it, I am trying to transfer them to my computer but every time I try a window pops up saying I need to format my card. My card has already been formatted and I cannot find any other way to get my pictures on my computer without formatting my card and obviously if I do that the pictures will be erased. I have tried transferring them through the camera (with the card in the camera) and putting the card directly into my computer but either way wont work. Is there any way to save my pictures?

Re: XD picture card
Can you view the pictures via your camera? Sounds like the card is corrupt. If the camera can't see the pictures either, you're out of luck. Or you can try a card reader. Card readers cost about $20 and are easy to find.

XD cards are now obsolete memory cards. The cards were developed by Olympus and Fujifilm and released during the summer of 2002. There is now an adapter that allows an SD card to be used in place of the XD card You need to remember that the capacity should not exceed 2 GB or the camera will not be able to accept it. As far as I know cameras accepting XD cards were last produced in 2007, I don't know what specific models however the camera specifications would show what type card it uses.
The xD-Picture Card contact area is soiled
The xD-Picture Card is damaged
The xD-Picture Card format is incorrect
The manual offers the following under Remedy:
Wipe the contact area on the xD-Picture Card with a soft dry cloth. It may be
necessary to format the xD-Picture card
If the error message is still displayed. replace the xD-Picture Card.
Contact your Fujifilm dealer.
A card access error may indicate that an xD-Picture Card memory card is in a write-protected condition. xD-Picture Card memory cards have a special protection feature to ensure that your pictures are kept safe.
During this condition, you can still use the printer for printing and saving photos from the xD-Picture Card to a secure location, such as the computer hard drive.
To resolve this error, try the following:
Reinsert the xD-Picture Card memory card into your camera and turn on the camera. In most cases, the camera automatically makes the necessary changes.
Reformat the xD-Picture Card memory card. See the documentation that came with your camera for instructions on reformatting the memory card. Note that this process erases the pictures currently saved to your memory card. To save these pictures, transfer them to the computer before reformatting the memory card. Once you reformat the memory card, transfer those photos back to the memory card using the computer.
If this is the second card to fault this does suggest a camera write/read problem.
Contact Fuji tech support with this, there may be an on going issue. Also if the camera is young a 'swap out service may be possible if it out of warranty.
If it is a nono dont trash it some on on this list is looking for Fuji Parts
