Question:
The "CARD ERROR !" message suddenly appeared and now I can't take or play back pictures.

Answer:
The "CARD ERROR !" message is displayed on a digital camera when the camera cannot recognize the recording media (Smart Media or xD-Picture Card) due to a media fault such as a format error or soiled contact surfaces.

1. Wipe the recording media contact surfaces gently with a soft cloth.

2. Format the memory card with the digital camera and then check the media.
 * If your computer recognizes the media, download the image files to the computer before you format the media.
 * Formatting the media erases all the image files on that media.
 * Even when your computer recognizes the media, the "CARD ERROR!" message may still appear on the digital camera depending on the recording media status.

If you format the recording media, take pictures and then the same problem recurs, contact the nearest authorized FUJIFILM repair facility as there may be a problem with the camera.

*Please try FUJIFILM brand SD & xD media cards. We cannot guarantee performance of other brands
