Memory Card Problem

I just bought a 512mb xD memory card for my A330 Fuji Digi Cam....I put it in and turned on the camera, getting message "Frame No. Full". I have done reset and format from the camera menu with no results. Have you seen this before? Does anyone know how I can fix the problem?

    Capacity listed in the manual goes up to 512 mb, which is what I put in. Thank you for your help anyways. :)

    ok.....camera has the correct firmware, but apparently the mem card does not. The thing to do is DL the new version of firmware onto the card......How do I do that?


    thank you for any help!!!!

I've solved it.
I'll bet a buck you also bought a memory card reader.
If you hook the memory card (or camera) to a computer, you'll see a directory with a name like fuji_999.
After you download the pictures delete that directory from the memory card, and the problem's solved.
I just did it with a 1 gig xd card in my daughter's fuji 480. It had a main directory on the card called DXsomething, and 2 subdirectories, fuji_100, and fuji_999.
I deleted all three directories (after saving the photos), and the problem is gone.
Hope it works for you.

You could try formatting the card while it is in the camera, using the menu option on the camera?

You need to download the latest available firmware update. http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital/download/a330/fupd.html This will allow you to use the new "type M" xd cards.

    have you another card to check out by
    It could be a dodgy card.
    Also if you have a card reader [or access via a friends computer] check the new card in theirs.
    I could be a camera or a card fault- some more checks to tell which are needed.

    Memory cards do not carry 'firmware'
    Any firmware update would relate to the camera.
    If you have installed such a file on the card then put into the computer via a card reader and delete from there.
    But do not format the card in the computer
    this is a camera only function

    Perhaps a dud card - have you checked that angle?
    Tried the card in another camera

Just purchase a 512mb memory card for my Fuji A330 I am able to take one picture but when I attemp to take a second picture in get the message "Write error" and it will not record that picture. ...


The A330 was first introduced in March of 2004 when a 512mb memory card would have cost more then the camera. First thing to mind with this problem has the "new" 512mb card been formatted to this camera? You may want to format the card twice and try it again. I know this may sound odd but even with my "older" Pro camera (5 Years) I had to download new updates to allow it to accept anything beyond an 4gig Memory card

I have purchased a 2GB XD memory card for my FinePix A330 camera. My camera is showing "Card not Initialized". Can you please inform me of the procedure I need to follow to initialize. Thanks


Your problem is that your camera is totally incapable of formatting an xD card of that large a capacity. You have an older 3.3 megapixel model designed when the maximum xD capacity planned was 512MB and the largest capacity available was 256MB.

Your camera will work with a maximum 512MB xD card but cannot use larger capacities. 512MB should be plenty though as on the fine setting it allows you to store about 330 images and on the normal setting it's 665 images. On the two video resolutions it's about 53.5 minutes and 182.5 minutes although on the lower resolution the battery would run out long before 3 hours!

There are no firmware updates to extend the capacity as it's a hardware limitation in the camera itself. Even if it could handle larger capacities then the camera would become very sluggish in operation. There's even a noticeable slowdown in camera response when using 512MB cards, so I recommend that you stick to a maximum of 256MB (you can always carry extra xD cards with you if you want additional capacity).

If you would like a free download of your camera user manual then click here for one from the Fuji website.

You only have two fixes: replace the xD card with a maximum 512MB capacity (preferably 256MB), or replace your camera with one of the recent models which accepts the 2GB xD card.

I hope that I have provided you with a clear explanation and practical options to fix your problem. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

I own a fuji finepix a330 camera, am very satisfied with performance I need an xD card. What is the maximum memory can this camera handle??? I purchased a 1GB card and the camera will not accept it


The camera is designed to accept up to a 512mb card. However, it can accept up to 2gb if you go to the support section of the Fuji website and download the firmware upgrade for your camera. Just be sure to follow the upgrade directions perfectly or you could end up with a dead camera. Don't worry, if you follow the directions, everything will be ok.

How do I initialize a new xD 2GB memory card for my A330 Fuji FinePix camera?


Your A330 is not compatible with the XD cards that start with an "H" or a "M" before the XD designation, unless you perform a firmware upgrade. You can do it yourself using this link from Fuji Canada. http://www.fujifilm.ca/x13573.xml

Uji fine pix a 340 card not initialised


Using an A330 - turn on the menu... Burrow down to the set-up menu.  Then choose "format". 
I don't know how similar your menus and buttons are to my A330 - but this should be a good starting point.

512 MB card problem


If the new 512mb xD card has a prefix of "H" or "M" before the 512, it is not compatable with your A330 unless a firmware upgrade is performed on the camera. You can download all the details here http://www.fujifilm.ca/x3720.xml

Problem with 'write error' on memory card


Make sure you got a card that is compatible to your camera. In my case, I bought a new 512mb Fuji XD card to get the same "write error" message. I needed a type "H" but bought "M". I had to go to www.fujifilmusa.com to upgrade my camera to be compatible with the newer cards that are out now.
