I have a Fugi fine pix A340...Never had a problem...Just went to Tx and took pics...came home to load card to transfer...nothing is reading the card and I get card error message on camera...Please help...I tried changing batteries...does not matter...Deb
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.

The SAME thing is happening to mine as of yesterday.. I uploaded pics no problem yesterday morning, took more pics last night and then when I went to plug it in.. says card error. Tried other cards in my camera, its saying the same AND this card will no longer work in other readers.. Heeelp please!
I had the same problem. Your memory card likely has too much memory. I put in a 4G card and it would not take a photo. Every time the camera went off it said "Error - Card Full".
You have 2 options.
1.) You can remove the memory card and use the internal memory to take photos (it will only hold 20 pics) and transfer them onto the memory card by shutting the camera off, inserting the card, turning the camera on, wait for the menu to clear and then shutting the camera off again and removing the card. This does work, but you are limited in the number and quality of photos that you will get.
2.) Get a smaller capacity memory card. I went out and bought a 2G card. Funny thing is that the camera wouldn't even recognize it at first. When I turned the camera on a message saying "Please wait" kept flashing on the screen. I waited 10 minutes and just shut it off and pulled the card again. I took the card home and formatted it on my PC. When I put it in the camera the next time it worked fine. So to save you some trouble, buy a smaller card and FORMAT it on your computer before trying it in the camera. It will save you a headache. After all of that BS I finally got the stupid thing to work. It takes beautiful pics but I will not be buying another Cuddeback. My next trail cam will be a different brand for sure. Not worth the hassle IMO.
I would put the card in my pocket and take it to work... Nearly every desktop made in the last 5 years has card readers, and if you can't DL the pics at work (to a file that you attatch to an email for DLing later at home), then hit a coffee shop with public machines...the library...even most drugstores (CVS, for example) have card-readers in their photo dept.
Walmart has printing/document service (near electronics dept) with card-readers and can transfer the pics to disk...as will most any downtown document service, including many UPS stores (Yes, they have document services).
Once the pics are recovered, you can of course re-format the card.
Yes, it would appear that you solved your own problem. The Fuji S5000 apparently only takes the max of 512 mb card. I own a newer Fuji S700 and it works fine with a 2 gb SD card, but I haven't tried anything bigger. Your best bet is to see if you can exchange those 2 gig cards for 512 mb cards at the store where you purchased them, and then try the 512's to see if your pc will read the pics. Explain to the store what the problem is and they should allow you to make the exchange.
If your new xD card has an "H" or an "M" before the 1gb, it is not compatible with your camera unless a firmware upgrade is performed (go to www.fujifilm.ca and follow the links for support to the firmware upgrade section). If the card doesn't have the H or M, you just need to format the card in the "set-up" menu of the camera.
The problem may be due to the size of the cards you are using. The manual for this model only mentions cards up to 512mb in card size as compatible ones. On the Fujifilm's website there is a compatiability chart which does state that the camera can accept up to 2 GB but that some cameras might have to have a firmware upgrade to do so (there is a list of serial numbers at the bottom of the chart to check your camera against.
The link for this is...... http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/accessories/card/a/index.html
Hopefully this will help (& not barking up the wrong tree!)
Hmmm, I'm thinkin' if there's no memory card in camera, there are NO memories, aka formerly known as photos.
Unless there is some sort of an internal memory, but me thinks not.
As for error message, might be because....card fell out while an image was being captured.
