i am having trouble with my new memory card. i would greatly appreciate some advice. tonight after taking pictures i tried to download the pics onto the computer. for some reason the pics wouldn't transfer from the card to the computer. i took the card out and re inserted the card into my camera which had been working fine. now a message saying card error is displayed and i can't do anything with the camera... i am using a fairly new fujifilm xd picture card with 256mb which has worked fine up to this point. the same thing happened with a previous card which i had for a long time and just recently replaced with this new card. i tried to clean the card with a soft cloth. i also checked the inside of the insert area and everything seems ok. is there any way to salvage the pictures that were on this card? is there anything that i can do to rectify this situation other then throwing this camera and card in the trash...:-) thank you for your time and help!

Re: card error and fujifilm s3100 digital camera
If this is the second card to fault this does suggest a camera write/read problem.
Contact Fuji tech support with this, there may be an on going issue. Also if the camera is young a 'swap out service may be possible if it out of warranty.
If it is a nono dont trash it some on on this list is looking for Fuji Parts

The reasons why do you get a message "CARD ERROR" are:
1. The memory card is not formatted.
2. The memory card requires cleaning or memory card is damaged
3. Incompatible memory card.
4. Camera malfunction.
What do you need to do are:
1. Format the memory card.
2. Clean the contacts with soft and dry cloth. If the message is repeated, format the memory card again. If the message persists, replace the memory card.
3. Use compatible memory card.
4. Contact FujiFilm dealer.

For Angelbabys and Rflenon, I suggest you get a card reader and copy the pictures to your computer. Then go to Fuji's website to see if you need a new driver to re-install your camera. I'm guessing the problem is software based and not hardware. So you can try to update your drivers or installation softwares at this website:
thats the most common trouble in digital cameras, it last for around three years working in good condition. try to locate the backup battery , its a small button like battery. also try another memory card, your card maybe has a virus.
