Try formatting on another fuji/olympus or on a computer, and then again in your camera. this should work no problem. Usually this is just a file system error. In the odd case it is a card or camera error but not likely at all.

A few things here, first have you just downloaded your pictures to your computer? If so then remove the memory card from the camera and make sure the little "lock" switch on the side of the upper left corner is in the unlock position. Unlock position is with this slide type switch pushed towards the top or the gold contacts. The you insert the XD card back into the slot making sure not to move teh little switch. The close the compartment turn on the camera and go directly to your menu and format the card. If this was a new card then it needs to be formatted, if this card has just had pictures downloaded to the computer then it needs formatting. There are a number of reasons for card error messages but most if not all can be solved by formatting the card
You will want to format the memory card in the camera. This will permanently remove all of the data from the card. To do this go to Menu - right arrow to Setup - press Ok - select Format - right arrow - select Yes and then press Ok. The camera will indicate Busy as it is performing the operation. When done the camera should read No picture. You will then be able to start taking brand new images again.
Has your camera always done this? Or is this a recent problem. Also, have you changed your memory card, and that has caused your error? Some times if you use a higher capacity memory card than the camera can use (especially with the xD card format) you will encounter very wierd errors, as the camera is trying to read or save to the card.
One thing to check is the memory card type. Olympus uses the xD card, BUT in the last couple years they have changed the format, from an xD card to an xD card type "M". The type M has a different file structure, and older cameras, and ones that can't support the "M" format might give odd errors.
I checked Olympus' website and I did NOT find any drivers for your camera, which is odd. Try uninstalling and reinstalling your software, and also check your memory card. If you have an extra around, try using it (I wouldn't recommend go buying a new one as many places do NOT let you return memory cards). Let me know if this helps!
