Never go for an Xd card when you can go for a Compact flash. XD cards are far less reliable, and often have sofwatre cockups etc. Compact flash cards store very quickly and can be used in poor conditions

Http:// this link says that your camera can run with either the XD or the CF card.

There wil not be any noticable change in performance.

My s7000 batterries do not last very long i am wondering if something is draining them down

Release Date: 12 January 2004

Fujifilm today announced that a number of early FinePix S7000 Zoom digital cameras may experience battery power depletion when used with some CompactFlash™ memory cards.

This fault does not occur when the S7000 is used with either an xD-Picture Card™ or a Microdrive™, nor does it occur in any other Fujifilm products that offer a CompactFlash™ storage facility, such as the FinePix S2 Pro, S602, S602 Pro or M603.

Cameras with serial numbers above 34L60001 (inclusive) were produced after 15 December 2003 and therefore will definitely not experience this battery drain problem.

In the short term, the problem can be avoided by unloading then re-loading the batteries just after the camera is switched off. The camera's power supply will then perform normally.

As I am scrolling through the pictures on the camera, a "read error"message comes up. This is occuring with all of the memory chips - even the new ones so I do not think it is a chip problem. Can you offer...

you have two slots for memory cards .. one for XD and one for CF .. if you have trouble with one slot then you can try the other type card ..

if you are using a CF card or micro drive .. then look into the slot where they normally go .. look for bent or missing pins .. some CF memory cards don't have much of a "lead in taper" on their connector .. sometimes they will snag a pin and bend it, push it out of place or break it ... sometimes you can straighten it but replacing a broken pin is a big job .. usually the whole connector will be replaced if its sent in for repair .. if you have trouble with the CF slot you can instead use a XD memory card .. or visa versa .. the little LED flashlights are ideal for looking into the memory slot...
make sure you format any new memory cards in the camera before use .. that should pick up any problems and makes sure the card is compatable with the system ..

Fujipix S9600 - just a white screen - can't get to any menus.

the s9600 does not use sd carde, it uses xd and cf, you might have damagesd the camera by forcing the wrong type of card in, fujifilm's repair center might be able to fix it, but it might be broken too badly

How big of memory cards will work with the FUJI S7000

The easy answer is..... 2 Gb.

The longer answer entails fat16 vs fat32 abilities, and the posibility of reformatting your card on the computer in an attempt to possibly get the s7000 to recognise it with mixed success. Since the s7000 is fat16, it can recognise only 2Gb of data.

The xD cards max out at 2Gb. CF goes much higher, but only 2Gb will be recognized.

On a related note, if you do continuous shooting or movies and use an xD card, make sure you get the H-type (not M or M+) as this is higher speed and will avoid timing issues. All of the newer CF cards are plenty fast already.

Fuji S9600 Memory Card Holder Broken

sadly a warrenty will not cover accidentally putting the card in the wrong way, as it is tecnically your fault, but you can use the slot for xd cards, if you do not want to pay for a new cf slot
