SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Pull your sd card out of the camera... there may be a lock tab along the left side of the card (label facing you and metal tabs up) the lock position is labeled... you can change it with your fingernail... make sure it's unlocked...

Its possible that you have activated some "secure mode"... it means the picture is protected so no one can accidently delete it-someone protected it and you can usuallly go into playback menu and unlock it.

Also could try format connecting your SD Card at pc as external reader device.

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Here is a 128MB card, which is the most that camera will take. Kind of a steep price at 50 bucks: http://www.memoryten.com/pc/003468/Flash-SSDFC-128MB/

The other choices you have are listed in the graphic below. You should be able to google shop by part number.

Are you not able to simply connect the camera and browse it as a flash drive? The software is a free download from Fujifilm's web site: http://www.fujifilmusa.com/support/ServiceSupportProduct.do?prodcat=235340

Hello

If the card works in another camera or another card doesn't work in your camera , the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

The card has a small swich on the side section which when pushed locks the data from being erased off accidentely.
so move it and the protect will change and allow the card to be written once again.

Possible that the card has the small lever on it pulled down so that it protects from over wrting.
So remove the card and look on the side for aa small switch showing a direction to protect, move it off and it will allow the card to write again.

When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock or not protected.

You can get it any electronics store that deals cameras and mobile phones. You should ask for a smart media card for your cam and they will give you one.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive.

You will lose all of the pics on your card but you need to reformat the card from your camera I tried reformatting it using the computer and rthe camera was still displaying the card error message but one I reformatted using the camera it went back to normal.

Generally, the best thing to do is to remove the battery for a few minutes and reinstall it.  This will kill any of the settings you've made.  Reprogram.  If that doesn't work, replace the battery or recharge it.  Also clean the contacts on it.  If this fails, I suggest you weigh the cost of service versusu a new camera.

Remove the card from the camera.  There is a small slide tab on the card which shows a picture of a lock.  Move the slide tab to the unlock position.  If this doesn't fix it, replace the card.

Ok your computer should have the software needed to view the pictures already installed, so maybe you are having trouble actually getting them out of the camera and into the computer?

You may need to download the file for your operating system from here.
http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital/download/01/index.html#windows

After installing that you should just be able to plug the camera into the computer and let it copy the photos for you. On the PC the software is called "Scanner and Camera Wizard" (on windows XP) which can be found under All Programs, then Accessories, and on Mac I photo will do tthis for you.

Good luck

About the HS10 autofocus problem, I discovered the cause and solution. It is a problem of camera design, and is caused by three screws securing the CCD sensor. These screws are not properly secured and the vibration eventually dropping.
In two cameras with the same defect, the screws were loose. These screws adjust the sensor position relative to the lens and the sensor is loose when out of position not allowing proper focus.
The solution is to disassemble the camera and secure the screws.
These screws can not be too tight they need to be adjusted to position the CCD sensor correctly. The camera is difficult to dismantle because several wires are soldered.
Care must be taken to discharge the capacitor of the flash, this may cause an electric shock and burn the camera board.
Those who want to try the repair, follow the link to the service manual.
