512 MB card problem

I have a A330 Fuji camera. The 16mb card that came with the camera works fine. I just purchased a new 512 mb card. The first picture I take is fine but when I try to take more pictures I get at "READ ERROR" message. When I try to look at the picture I took a "READ ERROR" message appears. I formatted the card through the camera but the problem still happens. I do not have a card reader to format it with. What seems to be the problem? Thanks

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

Purchased 8GB fijifilm card for A330 and can't insert it


The A330 uses xD Picture Cards, which top out at 2GB. Your 8GB card is some other type (most likely SDHC) which will not work in the A330.

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

Fugi S5000 2gb xd M+ Computer says it's not formated


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.

What type of memory card are you using?  Is this a new problem since you've started using a new memory card?
The A330 can't use some of the newer types of xD cards.  These have letters before the file size like "H512mb" or "M1gb".
You can only use plain xD cards with no letter in front, like the small 8mb or 16mb card that came with the camera. Or, you can download a firmware upgrade to us type "M" xD cards. Read about that here: http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital/download/a330/fupd.html

Or, if a new memory card is likely not the problem, you could try re-initializing the card.  Make sure to copy any pictures from the card onto your computer first.  Re-initializing will erase all data from the card.
In the Menu, use the right button to go over to "Set".  Arrow up to choose "Set-up".  Then arrow down on the "1" screen to "Format".  It will step you through reformatting the card.
Hope this helps, -Kelly.

Memory card problems...Fuji FinePix A330


Same thing happened to me.  I ran across a website that allowed me to download a free recovery program that looks at memory cards.  Thankfully this free program allowed me to recover all 232 pictures I had saved from a trip to Spain.

 

Here is the link I used.

Good luck!

Memory Problem


have you tried formatting the card first within the camera, as it may be corrupt, or try it in a card reader and format that way.
