Make sure that the memory card slot is completely empty. Also, make sure that you are inserting the card in the right way. If that doesn't work, the micro card could have been jammed so far in there that it bent the connections. Most likely not possible unless he hammered that thing in there. Also, check on your menu on the camera. Make sure that the memory card type is not changed. If any of this doesn't help, unfortunately you will probably need to send it back to the manufacturer.

I cannot get memory card into camera


Your camera uses "xD-Picture Card" memory cards.
To insert the memory card, you have to open the battery cover and you see a little room, where the card goes in. There should be a gold marking indicating where the contact area on the card should be when inserted.
Don't try to insert any other kind of card.
I saw a xD-Picture Card adapter, where you could insert a micro SD card, but I'm not sure your camera can work with such a adapter.

Pictures saving to internal memory instead of memory card


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.

As I am scrolling through the pictures on the camera, a "read error"message comes up. This is occuring with all of the memory chips - even the new ones so I do not think it is a chip problem. Can you offer...


you have two slots for memory cards .. one for XD and one for CF .. if you have trouble with one slot then you can try the other type card ..

if you are using a CF card or micro drive .. then look into the slot where they normally go .. look for bent or missing pins .. some CF memory cards don't have much of a "lead in taper" on their connector .. sometimes they will snag a pin and bend it, push it out of place or break it ... sometimes you can straighten it but replacing a broken pin is a big job .. usually the whole connector will be replaced if its sent in for repair .. if you have trouble with the CF slot you can instead use a XD memory card .. or visa versa .. the little LED flashlights are ideal for looking into the memory slot...
make sure you format any new memory cards in the camera before use .. that should pick up any problems and makes sure the card is compatable with the system ..

The camera says xd and sd compatible but it seems that the card is getting stuck and wont fit into the slot for the card?? any ideas why? i just bought the camera 2 days ago


The camera has one xD slot, and is supplied with an adapter which fits into the slot if you wish to use micro-SD cards. Regular SD and mini-SD cards will not fit.

Can i use a sd memory card with my olympus fe 330


No this is not possible. Olympus is using the xD-Picture Card.
If you get an microSD to xD adapter (Olympus MASD-1 adapter) it is possible to use Micro SD Cards.

How do I use micro sd card in camera


What is the orange "card" bundled with my camera and how do I use it?
The “card," pictured below as packaged, is the MASD-1 card adapter.
masd-1_microsd_adapter.jpg
The MASD-1 accepts microSD and microSDHC media, giving owners the option to record to those cards or to xD-Picture Card media, which is Olympus’ preferred format.
To use microSD/SDHC media in the camera, simply insert the card into the adapter and then insert the adapter into the camera's memory card slot.
