Question about Fuji FinePix A345 Digital Camera

Fuji Finepix XD card was being used last night

Took many stills and short vids. Suddenly, it gives a message, Card not initialized. I don't want to lose what is on there, but my computer keeps asking to format card when I try to locate and transfer to save last night's pictures.

Re: Fuji Finepix XD card was being used last night

When you recieve a "Card Error" or "Card Not Initialized" message, this indicates that your memory may be temporarily corrupted. This can be due to not formatting your memory card on a consistent basis. Most consumers will use the "delete all" feature and continue to take pictures. By doing this, the file format of the card may become unstable.

We recommend formatting your memory card in your camera after saving the images from your previous shooting session. Once a memory card is formatted, the images will not be recoverable.

Formatted the card on windows via my computer. Format to FAT and did not select quick format option. Took about 5-10 seconds. Card is working fine now.

I had the same problem and downloaded a firmware upgrade from the Fuji web site and it now works in the camera.

Initializing xd card

Put the camera into play or review mode then hit the ok/menu button on back and format the card. This will erase all of your photos so make sure you've backed them up or download them.

'Card not initialized'

I just bought a sweet FUJI FinePix S5700...
I could not for the life of me understand why I was getting this message, and I was getting very upset !!!
I have a brand new Sandisk 2GB card, and it was driving me CRAZY.
My solution turned out to be a very simple one.
When your computer sees your card and you need to format it, it will give you TWO options. Either format using "FAT32", or just "FAT".
The FAT32 option gave me no results.
I tried again using simply "FAT", and it works just fine!

Fuji Finepix xd Card.

1) use the format option to get the card ready for your camera.
2) If that fails, the camera may need to go to Fuji for a firmware upgrade (assuming your new card is type H or M card). I don't believe the upgrade is performable by the user.

I cannot get card to work in my fuji finepix a 340 says write error inserted Olympus Xd picture card . ASfter attemting to take picture, rec'd message that it could not initialize.

If your new xD card is an "H" or "M" type card, it is only compatable with the A340 following a firmware upgrade to the camera. is a link to the software and steps you can take to perform the upgrade.
