Question about Fuji FinePix A330 Digital Camera
I can't get it to initalize It will not format . Each attempt end with. notification Card in drive K (that's the A330) can't be formated.
Is there any way to solve this problem, & fix this thing.
My daughter is supposed to take it to Cape Cod from Western NC.
I just solved the same problem - it took a while. The original A330 camera was NOT set up to use with newer M type XD cards. But there IS a fix. You need to update the camera's "firmware". Go to:
The scroll down to Firmware and find the A330 one. Download it to your computer's harddrive. Save it in a folder of its own.
Then EXTRACT the FinePix 330 file of about 604 KB that you will find in your new folder (do that by clicking it). It will produce a new file called FPUPDATE, a DAT file of about 1857 KB. LEave that.
Now either stick the old XD card into your computer (if it has an XD slot), or a Card Reader connected to your computer, or connect your camera with the old card to the USB port.
Once your computer recognizes the old XD card, just COPY the FPUPDATE file right onto the XD card by dragging it over.
Then insert the old XD card back into the camera (or disconnect the camera from the USB, turn it off).
Now here's the key: MAke sure your batteries are good. Turn on the camera WHILE HOLDING DOWN the DISPLAY/BACK button.
You will get a screen that says FIRMWARE UPDATE. Accept it, let it load, and it will upgrade to Version 1.77 that accepts M-XD cards!
Then put in the new card. Then FORMAT it by using the MENU screen on the camera.
Once you do that it will WORK (it took me 2 days to figure this out!!!!!). Good thing this is just a back up camera for me!
