A few weeks ago, I was taking some photos in a park. The CF card became full, so I went to put in a new one. As I put the card in , I felt some grating to the sides of the slot/holder. I was just using normal strength, not forcing it. I may have put the card in wrong way round. When I took the card back out to put it back in , the card does not go completely in.
I returned the whole camera back to Fuji in the UK and have now been asked to pay £99.99 ! I've only had the camera for about 4 or 5 months.

firstly try checking your settings. i get used to get alot of customers who came in with similar problems and some of them were because they switched their save settings to internal. if that doesnt work make sure all pics are saved somewhere and try reformatting your memory cards.
the s9600 does not use sd carde, it uses xd and cf, you might have damagesd the camera by forcing the wrong type of card in, fujifilm's repair center might be able to fix it, but it might be broken too badly
If possible you can copy the directory with you pictures and clear it out the format the card and copy back the empty directory. I hope this works I need the directory for my card if it works post it..........
Hi! I just had the same problem with my Sony A100, when I tried two different CF cards. I was getting the same error message as reported above: "Unable to use card" then "Format?" then that format fails. Thinking the camera
is broken, I checked online camera repair sites and also called Sony
directly. Sony's flat rate, and that of PrecisionCamera is $228 to fix
CF card failure. Then my daughter said, "the CF card in my room works
fine in the camera" - and lo and behold - it does. The CF card that
works is brand PQI and is marked Hi-Speed 60 2Gb. The cards that do NOT
work are marked SanDisk Ultra II 1.0Gb and SanDisk 128 Mb. So my advice
is, before you give up on the camera as broken, try a number of
different CF cards first.
The second cause of CF failure is if
someone has pushed a CF card in the wrong way. That can bend one or
more of the tiny metal contact pins in the CF socket in the camera.
Look carefully to see that all the pins are straight up. [I don't know
how one can straighten these pins, or if the whole socket would need to
be replaced...but at least you can determine the cause of the CF
A clearer indication of missing images would be useful - how do they know the images are 'missing' have they seen them previously from the card? If images have been deleted- accidentally then that's another story Download PC-Inspector from the web This is a free image /data retrieval program for such situations.
