Re: XD Card Error

Looking through the lense or at the live view panel does not require the same functions as a capture.
The fact that you can see an image should indicate that you have power for the device, but be sure you have fully charged the correct type of battery (see your User Guide to check the requirements). Not all batteries are the same, even if they are the same size. Check to see if your camera requires NiMh, Lithium, etc, and that you have the correct type inserted.

Next, storage cards can go bad, but usually this happens only after a long period of time (years), or if exposed to a magnetic force of some kind.
You can try a few things to resolve it:
1. Try reformatting the card, if the device can process data on it.
2. Insert the card into a card reader on a PC to see if the drive can be read. If you can read the card, remove all data and empty the trash, then reformat it.
3. If you get an error on that as well, replace it.
It's not worth risking that you might lose your valuable pictures to unstable media.
Good luck.

XD card

Most fuji cameras use xD cards, I have had similar problems with my Fuji, and had to use a repair program to fix the issue. Once corrupt, no amount of coaxing will fix them. You can get the software at:

If you don't have any critical pictures, then buy a new xD card. But if you have important or sentimental photos buy the program from them. It works fantastic! Thanks for using Fixya!

the only wayi found to make the card accepted is to upgrade the firmware software, this can be downloaded from fuji website, and extract the file and copy it in the initial memory card supplied with the camera, then put bnewly charged batteries or ac adapter and on the camera holding the disp/back button. then it will show the option for the update, and then click ok . after installing ne firmware switch of the camera and put the new xd card on the camera and format the card. this will enable you to shoot inthe new card.

I cannot get card to work in my fuji finepix a 340 says write error inserted Olympus Xd picture card . ASfter attemting to take picture, rec'd message that it could not initialize.

If your new xD card is an "H" or "M" type card, it is only compatable with the A340 following a firmware upgrade to the camera. is a link to the software and steps you can take to perform the upgrade.
