SOURCE: Memory full
As you posted, both cameras have their memory full then you need to free up the internal memory either by deleting the contents or transferring them (the pictures) to your computer.
To transfer to your PC, you would need the installer/driver CD that came with the cam as well as a USB cable. You need to run/install FinePix Viewer prior to the USB connection. Follow on screen instructions. When asked to connect the cam do so. All others are explained with illustrations on the User's Manual. A copy od the A700 User's Manual is available here.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: card not initialized
Kyle850. I have a fujifilm finepix camera myself, and just recently had the same problem. The camera worked fine until one day I turned it on to take a picture and there was the "card not initialized" message. To fix the problem, just turn on your camera, push the menu button and use the right/left arrow buttons near the zoom button in the top left corner of the camera. Push the right arrow button until you come to the "option" window in the camera's view finder and use the "up" function of the zoom to highlight the "set-up" window. Press "ok", and use the right arrow button scoll over to the "2" tab and press the ok button again. Then use the "up/down" function of the zoom button to scroll down to the "format" tab. Press ok button again and use the "left" button near the zoom in and out button to highlight the "ok" option in the format window. By pressing the ok button here, it will reformat and reinitialize your picture card. If you do have pics already on your pic card, you may want to take your pic card to a photo center and see about recovering these pics before you go through the reformat process because there is a good chance that when you reformat your pic disk any pics on it will be gone. Good luck. SG

The trouble with trying to format large cards of 1Mb or 2 Mb is that in order to do so you need your original card or a card that currently WORKS. I have one of 16 Mb. Go to Fujis web help page and download the firmware fix "FinePixA340" to your PC. Run and extract the data file "FPUPDATE".Now you have to put this file onto the old card. I pasted it so it was "beside" the DCIM folder ( NOT the next one down 100_Fuji folder or it won't work). To copy and paste you may have to connect the camera to the PC or use a XD card reader/writer via a USB port. Having done that, put the card back into the camera if you used a XD writer and switch off the camera. For the next bit make sure your batteries are good or connect to a power supply. Hold down Disp/Back button and THEN turn on camera. It should have detected the new firmware data file. Follow the simple instructions-say yes and let the data file load--takes a few minutes. The camera should say the new version !.22. Now that the firmware has been updated , you can now format your NEW LARGER cards 1 or 2 MG. So take your old card out ,put the new card in and format. It worked sweet as a nut for both 1 and 2 MG. The trick is to use a card that already works,load firmware file onto this , update file onto camera, then format a larger card. Its what they don't say exactly that causes frustation. Happy formating campers

Your A330 is not compatible with the XD cards that start with an "H" or a "M" before the XD designation, unless you perform a firmware upgrade. You can do it yourself using this link from Fuji Canada. http://www.fujifilm.ca/x13573.xml
