Using an A330 - turn on the menu... Burrow down to the set-up menu.  Then choose "format". 
I don't know how similar your menus and buttons are to my A330 - but this should be a good starting point.

Hi i have an finepixa350 digital camara , i had lost the xd picture card the came with it so i got an Olympus xd m+ 2bg card and it keeps coming back "card error" help!

Your problem is that you have purchased an incompatible memory card.

The largest capacity xD card which your camera can use is 1GB, but it works better with a maximum of 512MB as 1GB can make the camera operations a little sluggish.

There are no updates to enable your camera to use the latest xD cards as the limitation is a hardware issue due to evolving technology.

You therefore only have two fixes: replace the xD card with a maximum 1GB capacity (but preferably 512MB), or replace your camera with one of the recent models which accepts the 2GB xD card.

I hope that I have provided you with a clear explanation and practical options to fix your problem. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

How do i get my Olympus D560 to use an xD M+ memory card? I keep getting card error message.


The Olympus compatibility chart on their website says that your camera works with type M and M+ sizes 256MB - 512MB.
The chart also says 256MB - 512MB for type H and 16MB - 512MB for standard xD cards.
It looks like the largest size xD you can use of any type is 512MB.
The D560 is quite an early digital camera and it is not unusual to have card size limitations.

Card not initialized error! please help me

Olympus cards don't always work in Fuji cameras. Maybe not at all in older Fuji's.
You could try and update the firm ware in your camera and see if that does anything (if it's available on the Fuji website) Go to the service and support section on the web site and you may be lucky

Xd picture card

You will need to do a firmware update to be able to use your new 'M' XD card. Also you will need a AC adapter to be able to use the update for your camera.
It is a Fuji site and it works.
Good luck.

Problem with 'write error' on memory card

Make sure you got a card that is compatible to your camera. In my case, I bought a new 512mb Fuji XD card to get the same "write error" message. I needed a type "H" but bought "M". I had to go to to upgrade my camera to be compatible with the newer cards that are out now.
