You will probably have to format the cards on the camera before they will be recognised. Do you have the instruction manual?

Internal memory card full


This camera has an internal storage capacity of 16.0 MB. That isn't much. But, it also has a slot for an SD memory card, which is capable of storing far more data than the camera's built-in memory. If you don't have one, go get a good quality, high-capacity SD card and install it in your camera according to the instructions. You should be able to store all kinds of pics and videos. But keep in mind that even the SD card has a limited amount of storage capacity, so you'll need to download the card to your computer now and again and re-initialize the card, or buy another when it gets full.

Ive been using the xd card on my fuji finepix s5200 for many times and today when I was about to upload the pictures in my laptop the card says it has to be initialized. How do I initialize a card and if...


I hate answering a question with a question but can't see a way around this. Are you using the camera to download pictures to the computer? If so what you need to do is purchase a card reader and I would suggest a card reader that does many different memory card types.

What this card reader does is steps completely around your camera and downloads pictures directly to your computer.

The Card Reader plugs into a USB port on your computer and looks at the reader (once the memory card is inserted) like an external mass storage device or external hard drive.

You then download the pictures from the reader/memory card to a file you create on your computer.

The nice thing about this is that it won't matter what camera you have or memory card you use the camera is no longer in the flow of pictures downloaded to the computer.

After the pictures are on the computer you can put the memory card back in the camera and "Format" the card this function is normally found in the set up menu.

When I turn on my digital camera the lens opens and closes and then the screen appears and says system error and shuts off compleatly what do I do?


Hello,

Remove any storage cards that may be in the camera, replace the batteries (or put on charger if not replaceable). Try to turn the camera on, if you still get the error, contact Sanyo for help in trying a master reset for the camera. If the error resolves itself, turn it off, put the storage card back in. If the error appears again, then you have a problem with the storage card. Replace the storage card with a different one, and see if error resolves.

Scan card says not initialized


Take it out and try again. Buy a cheap USB card reader for the card and try that. Try putting the card back in the camera and hooking the camera to the computer.

Initializing of xD-Picture card


The S3000 has a 512MB limit according to Fuji. Ther is also no firmware upgrade to address this issue. However I loaded a 1GB Olympus M type card into th S3000, which was pre-fornatted and worked straight away. After putting the card into the reader in my laptop, and then returning to the camera, the camera identified the card as not initialized. I tried to format the card in the camera but this didn't work.

To fix this I connected the camera to the computer using the USB cable located the camera card via My Computer, left clicked on and did a quick format in FAT (FAT16). After this the camera read the card and indicated 1305 frames available at 3M.
