My friend gave me her fujifilm xd picture card to load into my fuji finepix 3800 so that I could copy her pictures of our vacation trip onto my mac harddrive. I am getting a message on the camera screen that says card not initialized. How do I do that?

FinePix 3800 can handle any xD Picture Card size.
Unfortunately the largest ones are only 2 Gb
Here a chart of all available sizes, speeds
and approximate number of photos that can be taken on each.
Tested the xD 2Gb H & M+ on my own 3800 and both work great.
You will need to do a firmware update to be able to use your new 'M' XD card. Also you will need a AC adapter to be able to use the update for your camera.
It is a Fuji site and it works.
Good luck. http://www.fujifilm.ca/x3719.xml
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. http://www.fujifilm.ca/x3721.xml is a link to the software and steps you can take to perform the upgrade.
What type of memory card are you using? Is this a new problem since you've started using a new memory card?
The A330 can't use some of the newer types of xD cards. These have letters before the file size like "H512mb" or "M1gb".
You can only use plain xD cards with no letter in front, like the small 8mb or 16mb card that came with the camera.
Or, you can download a firmware upgrade to us type "M" xD cards.
Read about that here:
Or, if a new memory card is likely not the problem, you could try re-initializing the card. Make sure to copy any pictures from the card onto your computer first. Re-initializing will erase all data from the card.
In the Menu, use the right button to go over to "Set". Arrow up to choose "Set-up". Then arrow down on the "1" screen to "Format". It will step you through reformatting the card.
Hope this helps,
Yes, you'll need to format the xD Picture Card. You may be able to do this inside the camera in the options, if not - you'll need to connect it to your computer to get it to appear as a drive letter in "My Computer".
Select the new drive in My Computer, this will be your card, right click it and click Format, then proceed to format it. This should sort your problem out.
