The solution offers requires you to have a non-M type memory card to install the new firm ware before you can use an M type card.
The whole reason for the problem is not having a non-M type card to begin with!

If you have version 1.00, then you will need to upgrade to 1.22 in order for this camera to read an xd type M or H picture card. I believe this is your problem. Go to this link on Fujifilms site for specific info: http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital/download/a340/fupd.html

Hope this helps!

The error can be caused by:

for 1.:

Format the xD-Picture Card or internal memory on the camera (p.130)

for 2.:

Wipe the contact area on the xD-Picture Card with a soft, dry cloth. It may be necessary to format the xD-Picture Card

Yesterday I transferred all my pics from the xd picture card to my computer, nad now I keep getting write error message when I take a pic. The manual says that the card is write protected! How did this...


I don't think the XD card has a lock switch (some do) but what I fully expect is that the memory card requires your to format it to the camera you are using it in. You didn't tell me what camera make or model But you did say you have a manual, look for formatting or it may be called initialize. Formatting clean the surface of the memory card and makes it ready to accept new pictures again.

I am getting a message that reads "card not initialized". It is a new XD picture card. How do I initialize the card?


To initialize the new XD card, you go into the camera's setup menu and navigate to the format function. Format the card and you might be ready to go. If your new card has an "M" or an "H" preceeding the XD, your camera will need a firmware upgrade before it will recognize the card. Here's a link to the firmware upgrade procedure. http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital/download/a340/fupd.html

My FujiPix S700 is flashing card not initialized


If you have a new xD-Picture card that says "card not initialized" go to set-up and when it says "format OK? Erase All Data" press the triangle on the left of the menu/ok circle so it goes to "OK" then it will change to an hour glass going up and down until it stops and MAGIC! the card is initialized, at least it worked for this time for me.

Fuji A200 xD card uninitialized


OK There are 3 problems that  a company like Fuji should have avoided:
1. Directing one to "re-initialize" the chip and not providing any directions for doing so.
2. Calling it "initializing" in the menu and "formatting" in the camera menu.
3. Building a camera that blitzes the chip when the USB cord is accidentaly disconnected without following the ritual.
The FIX: Turn the camera on. > Switch from the red camera icon to the green arrow icon on the ring around the shutter button. > Press the "menu/OK" button. > Under the "Erase" menu, scroll up to "Format." Press "Menu/OK" button. > Re-format (aka "re-initialize') the chip and lose all images stored on it. Whoppeee!

How do I initialize a picture card?


Turn the camera viewer on (on your finepix 3800, it is the middle position where you preview photos). Press the "menu" button and you will be presented with four options, and the top option is FORMAT. Select format and your card will be usable again. Two things to keep in mind. Any pictures on the card will be lost, and when you press the menu button as I described it may take a few seconds before those four options appear. As an FYI, the most common cause of the card needing to be reformatted is when the pictures are loaded to a MAC computer and the USB cable is pulled before you eject the camera.

Initializing xd card


Put the camera into play or review mode then hit the ok/menu button on back and format the card. This will erase all of your photos so make sure you've backed them up or download them.

What type of xD card did you buy?  It needs to be a plain xD card with no letters before the file size or a type "M" card.  For type "M" you will need to upgrade the camera's firmware.
http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital/download/a330/fupd.html

This type of camera can't use type "H" cards, so cards like "H512mb" aren't going to work.
To initialize a card choose Menu. Arrow over to "Set", then arrow up to choose "Set-up". On screen "1" of the Set-up, arrow down to choose "Format".
This will ask you to erase all the images from the card, and format it.
Just today I upgraded my camera firmware to accept a type "M" card, initialized the type "M" card after that - and now it's working fine!
