Re: 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.
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.

Two solutions...you can get a replacement USB cord at stores like Walmart, Best Buy, etc....take your camera with you to get the correct size. Or, you could get a separate card reader and use it instead of the camera. This one is $13 at Walmart:
According to Fuji you camera can only use cards up to 512 meg. Look here: http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/accessories/card/index.html#compati Scroll down to find your model, then look across the row to where it says Yes, it's under the red coloumn 16 to 512 meg.
Same problem here, i upload the pics on my computer, then i turn off my cam, few minutes later try to turn it on, but no success, still have the blackscreen. I try to change the battery, reset it (15s without the battery, another 2 hours but no success), format the memory card (even without the memory the cam doesn't turn on).
