You may find that if the card is of the "M" of "H" type, it is not compatible with your camera, unless a firmware upgrade is performed. This is a bit complicated, but can be accomplished by the user by accessing the Fuji website and looking for the memory card compatibility chart. Here's a link to some help.

Card Initialize Error


What size is the original card? I don't think it is your camera, possibly the size of the new card.

Memory card


press menu and go left or right to setup. Scroll down to format and follow along to format (initialize) your new card. If that new card has an "H" or "M" before the size printed on it, it may not be compatable with the A340 unless an upgrade is performed (firmware upgrade). This can be done by Fuji, or you can do it with help from their website, under the support section.

Initialising card to A340 camera.


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!

Fuli A340 memory card problem


Try opening your My Computer screen, connect the camera to the computer and watch for the new removable disk to show up. Depending on the camera there may be two that show up. Right click on the removable disk/disks and choose format, click start and click okay. This should fully reformat the memory and you'll be able to take pictures again.

Cards not working with camera


If you used the SD/MMC memory card in another brand of camera or device, you may need to format the card in your new EasyShare digital camera. (You may have noticed a "Memory Card Needs Formatting" message when you inserted the card.) CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card. To format the SD/MMC memory card or the internal memory of the camera: Transfer images to the computer before formatting the memory card. Press the camera Menu button. Highlight SETUP MENU, and then press the OK button. Highlight FORMAT, and then press the OK button. Highlight an option - MEMORY CARD (deletes everything on the card), CANCEL (exits without formatting), or INTERNAL MEMORY (deletes everything in internal memory). Press the OK button. Highlight Continue, and then press the OK button. Wait until formatting is finished before removing the card. When formatting is complete, the SETUP MENU is displayed. Press the Menu button to exit the menu.
