Because this camera only understads FAT16 formatting, it does not accept any card larger than 2GB so your best bet is to use the current crop of standard 2GB CF cards, most newer ones (usually 16X and faster) are alsa fast enough for continuous VGA video as well. The best brands IMO are Lexar and Sandisk, but avoid the WA enabled cards, this camera can't make use of WA, it just slows the througput down.

Alternatively you may partition your 8GB card to a 2GB partition, but the rest of the card won't be accessible.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

I have a finepix S602Z and when i turn it on it comes up as card error this happens on different cards any ideas on how to correct this please


I suggest you take the batteries out and wait two minutes and reinsert them. Making sure that they are inserted correctly. If this doesn't work, try replacing the batteries with new ones.

If you formatted the memory card using your computer, or deleted images using your computer, you now need to Format the card with the CAMERA. One of the camera menus will have a Format command.
This is what FujiFilmUSA.com has to say about the Card Error:

When you recieve a "Card Error" or "Card Not Initialized" message, this indicates that your memory may be temporarily corrupted. This can be due to not formatting your memory card on a consistent basis. Most consumers will use the "delete all" feature and continue to take pictures. By doing this, the file format of the card may become unstable.

We recommend formatting your memory card in your camera after saving the images from your previous shooting session. Once a memory card is formatted, the images will not be recoverable.

Fuji Fine Pix S602 Z Memory card formatting problem


Looking at the original advertisements for that camera, it is only advertised as having memory cards up to 1Gb. You might find that the problem is that the camera doesn't support a card as big as 4Gb. You can probably check this in your manual.

With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. Then, insert the new card and do the format thing again.

Card Error message


Your card may have become corrupted, there are good free utilities out there to save such files from corrupted memory cards, try DIR (Digital Image Recovery) that you can use with a computer card reader if the computer does not recognize your connected camera as an external hard drive. 

If you were able to recover your files, format the card in the camera, that should solve your problem using the card.

If the card cannot be recognized by the computer or formatting the card doesn't help, you may have a defective memory card, try another one.

If the card works otherwise but is still not recognized by the camera you may have a defective memory card connector or other camera motherboard problem, sorry.

Hope this helped...

'Card not initialized'


I just bought a sweet FUJI FinePix S5700...
I could not for the life of me understand why I was getting this message, and I was getting very upset !!!
I have a brand new Sandisk 2GB card, and it was driving me CRAZY.
My solution turned out to be a very simple one.
When your computer sees your card and you need to format it, it will give you TWO options. Either format using "FAT32", or just "FAT".
The FAT32 option gave me no results.
I tried again using simply "FAT", and it works just fine!
GOOD LUCK!

Usually a bad card in my experience - I'm too tight to buy decent cards, and quite a few have given me problems. Luckily they're quite cheap nowadays!!

You could try using a PC with card reader to format them first, and cleaning the contacts carefully.

Hope this helps.
