Fuji S5000 - Max XD card capacity?

I've had a search on DPReview and google but I can't find any information about my query so I'm putting my faith in you guys :) I need to know what's the maximum capacity XD card a Fuji S5000 can take? Is 512 the max or can it handle a 1Gb unit?

Memory Card and the S5000


Fuji S5000 doesn't have an internal battery...it's a known motherboard/internal memory chip failure. Basically, they put a chip in there that will only last a couple years and then you either have to replace it (for a couple hundred bucks) or deal with correcting the settings everytime you change batteries (which will be more often now that some battery power is now dedicated to holding that internal memory settings). FujiFilm doesn't seem interested in correcting the issue via customer service either, very much a bummer!!

your S5000 contains a battery (lithium 'button' cell, I believe) which,
ordinarily, would enable the camera to store all the user settings. It
sounds as though yours (or its recharging circuitry, which is less likely)
has died. A year is rather a short life for these batteries in these cameras
but by no means unheard-of, unfortunately.
I don't know how easy it is to change the battery yourself on the S5000. If
you phone your nearest Fuji service centre and tell them how disappointed
you are (but otherwise very happy with their product... ;-) ) you may find
that they will do the job free - Fuji UK can be very good like this at
You might find advice on changing the battery yourself on the forums of
various digital camera sites, such as www.DPReview.com - the Fuji forum
there is at
http://forums.dpreview.com/for ums/forum.asp?forum=1012
Hope this helps, and good luck with your camera.

Firmware online upgrade?

If you can find the XD type H card, you can use up to 2gb. There are no firmware upgrades for your camera.

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.

On screen file no. full and I can not take pictures anymore

The solution is: 1. go to set 2. go to frame no. and reset. You can make pictures again.

Can FUJI S 5000 support a 2 GB xD card ?

The answer is YES. Be aware thate there are 2 types of XD cards: type M and type H. The type M it is not recommended for movie recording with your S5000 camera. The type H does not have this problem. Here is fugi compatibility site : http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/accessories/card/s/

Blurred subjects

Fuji uses a 16MB xD card with the camera, which won't hold too many 4 Megapixel photos at the highest quality setting. So you should plan on buying a larger card right away. xD cards are currently available as large as 1GB, and I think 128MB is a good starter size for most people. Be warned that xD cards tend to be more expensive than CompactFlash and SD cards.

Memory Cards Compatibility

As long as it's an XD-picture card, any brand should work.
