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!

    Sounds like you're using a PC, and you downloaded the .ZIP firmware update.  Sounds like it automatically unzips your files for you when they complete downloading.




    Try searching for the file:
    FPUPDATE.DAT


    It's possible it was saved somewhere on your computer and you just can't find it.

HOW DO YOU INITIALIZE PICTURE CARD FOR A FUJI FINEPIX A330 CAMERA


"initialize" means to format the card in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics first using a card reader if necessary. Then, with the card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" or "initialize" and follow the on-screen instructions.

Help with my my fuji finepix a330


If your new card has the letter "H" or "M" on it, your A330 isn't compatible with it unless a "firmware" upgrade is performed on the camera. Here's a link to the process, which you can do by following the steps.

Can not initialize new card. went to format and pressed okay, but still not initializing.


Your new card is probably of the newer "H" or "M" designation, which is not compatible with the A330 unless the camera receives a "firmware" upgrade. Here's a link to Fuji's website with upgrade details and instructions. https://www.fujifilm.ca/x13573.xml

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.
