Some Sandisc cards cause problems with S1000fd, when using the flash.
Try updating the firmware:

If all other cards work fine then you may have a faulty memory card.

Your camera should theoretically be able to handle an 8GB SDHC card (but only up to 2GB xD card) as it is an SDHC compatible camera, but I've encountered more than a few cameras in the past which were SDHC compliant but could only handle up to 4GB.

Most of these had firmware updates to enable up to 16GB SDHC but the Fuji S1000fd has no firmware update.

If you find that the SDHC card is fine after all then I'd suggest contacting Fuji for a definite say so as to whether they know of any issues with 8GB SDHC compatibility.

Communication error message on my canon s100


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Camera won't read SDHC card, says card error when trying to format


If you look at the spec, it will only take an SD card, not an SDHC card. SD cards max out at 2GB.

I'm having a problem with the sd card 8gb. i get a check card error and it won't function.


The SV-AV30 works with SD cards. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

PNY optima sdhchd 8gb won't read in my Kodak easy


What model Kodak EasyShare camera? Some of them only work with SD cards, not with SDHC cards. The same applies to kiosks. Make sure the slot is marked "SDHC' and not simply "SD".

Memory card locked


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here.

What sd card should i use withthis camera


You may use any SD card up to 2GB in size or any SDHC card up to 8GB in size. The speed won't make much difference, unless you use a card reader to download photos. Stick with any of the major brands (such as Lexar, PNY, or SanDisk) and you'll be okay.

Put in a 4gb SD card, camera says needs to format, I say ok, it say all pics will be lost, I say ok, and pick continue and then again it says needs to be formatted, and repeats this again and again


There are no 4GB SD cards. A card that size is actually an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.
