I bought a tevion 4 GB SDHC card but it wont work in my finepix a820 camera


Sorry, but the A820 was designed before the newer SDHC format card came out. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format its uses is very different. Sorry, but there's just no way that you can make an SDHC card work with your camera. You'll need to use a standard SD card only, those 2GB or less. Fortunately, 2GB standard SD cards are relatively inexpensive these days, as you can see from this link from Amazon.

For others reading with similar problems, but different cameras, there are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Camera says card not intialized, but I formatted the memory card


Format it using the camera instead of using your computer.

Card not initialized


unfortunately SD cards are very unreliable. if the card is recognized by your computer but you are still unable to view the pics... you have to format the card - This will result in the loss of all data on the card. If you perform a quick format you could try using an undelete software - A great suite of software is called glary utilities and it includes an undeleter. but i dont know if you will be able to save them or not

Hey mtangobung,
What this prompt means is that your memory card needs to be formatted, or the memory card contacts have somehow gotten soiled and the camera is not detecting the memory card. I would first try formatting the memory card in the camera, but remember this will erase all the images on the card so upload any images on the card to a computer first. If reformatting doesn't work I would clean the memory card contacts with an eraser. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

What type of xD card did you buy?  It needs to be a plain xD card with no letters before the file size or a type "M" card.  For type "M" you will need to upgrade the camera's firmware.
http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital/download/a330/fupd.html

This type of camera can't use type "H" cards, so cards like "H512mb" aren't going to work.
To initialize a card choose Menu. Arrow over to "Set", then arrow up to choose "Set-up". On screen "1" of the Set-up, arrow down to choose "Format".
This will ask you to erase all the images from the card, and format it.
Just today I upgraded my camera firmware to accept a type "M" card, initialized the type "M" card after that - and now it's working fine!  
Reply back if you need more help. -Kelly.
