The error can be caused by:

I have a 1 GB Olympus xD Picture Card that I am having problems with... Just a bit of background, but I've had this memory card for about 4 years with no problems... A few weeks ago, I had put my memory...


Formatting won't make it any easier for any recovery program to find the photos, so I definitely wouldn't do it, but leave the card as it is until you've successfully recovered them. In my opinion, the best program to use is called PhotoRec and you can find it here. It's free, released under the GNU licence. (Be sure to save any photos you recover to your computer... not to the card itself.) If that fails, then move on to try paid programs if you wish.

After you've recovered all the photos that you're going to get, only THEN would I format the card (in the camera please) in order to re-use it.

All of a sudden my xd cards are coming up with errors. I have never had a problem like this. It's telling me to format the card, but if I do that I will lose my pictures. Is there something wrong with...


You need to download your pictures from the memory card to your computer, once on the computer hard drive in a folder then format the memory card. Yes you will loose the pictures on the memory card BUT you will start over with a brand new clean surface on the memory card to put more pictures on. I think it's pretty amazing that the camera is actually telling you what it needs you to do. Most would just give you an error code without instructions.

Cant read the xd card


Try http://www.spartanphotocenter.com/digital-camera-sensor-cleaning.html the card needs a data recovery (using special recovery software) and then a reformat. That may get most of your pictures back, but there will most likely be some (can't say how many or why) that will be corrupt and not usable. If the corrution is really bad no pictures will be available. No way to know except by attemoting a data recovery.

Is it possible to recover my formatted pictures on my XD card


Deleting or formatting won't make the data in xd card erased permanently.

Those deleted data is still stored on the xd card, it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of xd card .

So as long as those data are not overwritten by new data, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.

Try asoftech data recovery program, which can recover data after deeply scanning your xd card drive to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted.

Xd memory card


A card access error may indicate that an xD-Picture Card memory card is in a write-protected condition. xD-Picture Card memory cards have a special protection feature to ensure that your pictures are kept safe. NOTE: During this condition, you can still use the printer for printing and saving photos from the xD-Picture Card to a secure location, such as the computer hard drive. To resolve this error, try the following:
  • Reinsert the xD-Picture Card memory card into your camera and turn on the camera. In most cases, the camera automatically makes the necessary changes.
  • Reformat the xD-Picture Card memory card. See the documentation that came with your camera for instructions on reformatting the memory card. Note that this process erases the pictures currently saved to your memory card. To save these pictures, transfer them to the computer before reformatting the memory card. Once you reformat the memory card, transfer those photos back to the memory card using the computer.

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.

You can add memory to your camera by purchasing an xd memory card.
Compatible cards
xD-Picture Card (16MB – 1GB)
There are two ways to record the pictures you take with this camera.
Recording pictures to the internal memory
• Pictures are recorded to the internal memory, and when the number of storable still
pictures reaches 0, you must connect the camera to a computer to download the
pictures, and then erase the pictures from the internal memory.
Using an xD-Picture Card (optional)
• Pictures are recorded to the card when inserted in the camera. When the card is
full, you download the pictures to a computer, and then either erase the pictures
from the card or use a new card.
• Pictures are not recorded to the internal memory when a card is inserted in the
camera. Pictures in the internal memory can be copied to the card using the
[BACKUP] function.
g“BACKUP Copying pictures in the internal memory to the card” (P.25)
“The card” (P.60)
Number of storable still pictures and recording length of movies

• If you use a non-Olympus card or a card used for another application, such as for
a computer, the message [CARD ERROR] is displayed. To use this card with this
camera, use the [FORMAT] function to format the card.
