Re: retrieving images off fuji xd card
A clearer indication of missing images would be useful - how do they know the images are 'missing' have they seen them previously from the card? If images have been deleted- accidentally then that's another story Download PC-Inspector from the web This is a free image /data retrieval program for such situations.

The camera can use up to a 2gb SD card as well as the Fuji proprietary card. Those should be readily available almost anywhere. If you are not in a big hurry you can buy 'em all day on Ebay & probably buy the proprietary XD card there as well.
Hi It sounds like the card is faulty (it does happen). I had one that acted similarly. You could try using the card in another camera to check - I have a card that works OK in Olympus camera but not at all in Fuji! Best of luck Martin
You should check the settings to see which type of memory card you are using, xD versus Compact Flash. The default xD card that the camera comes with is very small and may not support saving the size of image you're trying to capture. If you are using a card with enough memory the card itself might be defective..
1. Remove batteries 2. Remove XD card 3. Power up without XD card and try taking a few pictures using the internal memory. 4 If this works OK I suspect it is the XD card at fault. I have had a problem with a couple of cards but most of these were when I tried reading the card using an external card reader. 5. If you have one available or can borrow one try another XD card.
I have heard that some people have had some success using the following method to restore XD card.
If you know someone with a Fuji digital camera which takes XD cards then ask them to try formatting the card in their camera for you. Maybe your local retailer will let you try this with one of their display models. I have not tried this myself.
If this fails there are some card recovery programmes on the internet - try searching for CONVAR in Google.
If the card is a Fuji card then you could try contacting Fuji as they offer a card recovery service - or at least try to recover images from corrupt cards. Contact them on the internet first to check conditions and costs.
Finally I have not had any problems with the camera since I started using lithium or rechargeable lithium batteries.
No problems that is to say other than the person pushing the shutter release.
You can send your camera to FUJI and pay $120 or you can try this at home for zip...it worked for me!
I to have had focus error problem with my Fuji A310 camera and after much frustration and phone calls i decided to try a different approach to this problem........
I FORMATTED my 64mb XD card in my computer memory card reader using the FAT setting and guess what my camera is magically working now.....
Why couldn't FUJI helpline have told me this when i spoke to them, answer because they were to preoccupied in trying to sell me a new camera!!!!!as if, there service is nonexistent and proven!!!!!
Why is it called a HELPLINE then should rename it "FUJI RESELL LINE" hey....or maybe "FUJI NON HELPLINE"
Also formatted 16mb card same way and working also, maybe i should get a job at FUJI hey only problem is i wouldn't endorse there products, very good picture quality in an unreliable package..suggest any better brand for next time nicoleashley ?
ADDENDUM TO PREVIOUS SOLUTION FROM JIM PINEAPPLE---
After you have formatted the XD Card in your computer card reader reinstall card to camera and using the camera software format the card again, this prepares the card to accept it's normal data...
P.S. I called the Fuji Ha Ha Helpline here in AUSTRALIA and informed them of this procedure so as to help all the poor souls like us that purchased our only Fuji digital camera, as if they didn't know already,
and the moral of the story is as of 27-8-2007 Fuji would be absolute Mongrels to not inform via there helpline how to fix there very common "FOCUS ERROR" problem which is common across the Fuji digital camera range, just google FUJI FOCUS ERROR....
I have a blue LED problem too....One day the F401 was in its cradle with lights working all right. Next day they were not working. I tried removing and replacing the battery, I also borrowed a cradle, usb cable and mains adapter - but still no LEDS. However, the images upload to the PC as usual, the self timer works, the camera continues to take perfectly good pictures and, as far as I know, the battery is being charged. Any advice/comment will be appreciated if it helps to overcome this problem.
Incidentally, this latest malfunction is a bit annoying since the camera has already had a major CCD fault. I appreciate that digital cameras rely on microelectronics, but it does seem a bit 'throw-away' when you are told by the Fuji technical people that the cost of a possible repair is more than the current worth of the camera.
I have two conventional SLR (Konica TC Autoreflex and a Nikon 601S) both of whcih are working perfectly despite being 27 and 9 years old respectively. So much for progress, eh?!
