Hey, I bought my camera approx. in february 07 and first time that problem appeared was in may - i realized that if i shoot in a highest quality mode - Large Superfine, the indicator says i have around 180 pix to shoot but after 40, a message appears "memory card error" and in the view mode, i can only see and download to PC the first 40 pix without a problem but instead of the others i have a dark screen, question mark and 'Untitled/Unknown picture' (smth like that). The pix number indicator in shooting mode then says '0' and it doesn't work anymore. Then I fixed the problem just by changing the memory card with the original camera one - 16 MB, shot some pix with it.Then changed again and it began to work, but with the same problem after the 40th photo, so I had to switch to the MF mode when shooting, wchich as you suppose - is ugly. Just before i went on a nice trip 2 weeks ago, it stopped to work and this time it seems forever :((( constant 'memory card error' message and 0 photos remaining. yeah i know i should have asked long ago but i was busy and forgot cuz wasn't using it often. Anybody please help???? thanx in advance!!!!

Re: memory card error
I have a similar problem with one of my older memory cards. I have replaced it with a newer one. I don't have the problem any more. I keep the old card as an extra, knowing that it will only store a few photos.
The comment by the GUEST sounds like a different problem. That problem sounds like the "memory card switch" is locked. This is physical switch on the memory card itself, and will not allow writing to the card.

his isn't an error message. R04 or R07 or R[any number] refers to the
number of shots you can take before you're camera's internal memory
buffer is full.
As you're taking pictures, you're camera is writing to your memory
card. When you are taking burst photographs, all the other photos
you've just taken are "waiting in line" to get written to your card. If
your buffer is full, the camera will not let you take another shot
until it's finished writing the photo to the card.
Your camera's ability to write to the memory card is only as fast as
the memory card itself as well as the quality of the photos (RAW vs.
Sports photographers usually shoot in JPEG because they are taking a
lot of shots relatively quickly and if their camera freezes then they
can lose a shot.
the R means remaining, so R03 three shots remaining/left before the buffer is full.
Switching off the NR high iso and long exposure. buying a 166x card or faster will help but you won't see it on the counter.
If you do the above and switch to jpeg only it goes up.
you won't do this but, the above and quality to basic and small gives R51.
But if you shoot raw its R06 at best.
It's just the memory card. This error message comes up when the card sustains damage to any degree. Did you lend your camera or card to anyone or put the card into the wrong reading drive by accident? It may be time for a new memory card/stick. Exchange it if it's still under warranty.
Hey jackie jean, If the two year extended warranty you are talking about is a performance service plan purchased at a Best Buy™ store then you could bring the camera into a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store, and they should be able to send it out for service at no charge to you. I am assuming you formatted the memory card in the camera, but if this is not the case and you have formatted the memory card using your computer then I would suggest formatting the memory card in the camera. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
Hey Delyth, What you need to do is format the memory card to work in this particular camera. Directions on how to do this are on page 50 of your camera manual, and I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual incase you need it. Formatting the memory card in this camera is done in the set up menu. Keep in mind every time you format your memory card all current images on the card will be erased so upload them to your computer first. I hope this helps! http://www.fujifilmusa.com/shared/bin/A330A340Manual_1.pdf Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
I had the same problem. First, I changed my Memory-Stick, because after taking about 60 pictures the famous file error appeared. Secondly, if the camera shows the famous "file error" this can be resolved - at least in my case - by taking out the battery for at least 4 hours. So, if your camera is not in use, always take out the memory-stick and the battery and the problem does not appear. This helped in my case. However, this is in my opinion anything but satisfying. I had a Nikon Coolpix nd never experienced any problems like the "file error" of the sony digicams.
