Answers :

I just solved the same problem - it took a while. The original A330 camera was NOT set up to use with newer M type XD cards. But there IS a fix. You need to update the camera's "firmware". Go to:
\015\012The scroll down to Firmware and find the A330 one. Download it to your computer's harddrive. Save it in a folder of its own.
\015\012Then EXTRACT the FinePix 330 file of about 604 KB that you will find in your new folder (do that by clicking it). It will produce a new file called FPUPDATE, a DAT file of about 1857 KB. LEave that.
\015\012Now either stick the old XD card into your computer (if it has an XD slot), or a Card Reader connected to your computer, or connect your camera with the old card to the USB port.
\015\012Once your computer recognizes the old XD card, just COPY the FPUPDATE file right onto the XD card by dragging it over.
\015\012Then insert the old XD card back into the camera (or disconnect the camera from the USB, turn it off).
\015\012Now here's the key: MAke sure your batteries are good. Turn on the camera WHILE HOLDING DOWN the DISPLAY/BACK button.
\015\012You will get a screen that says FIRMWARE UPDATE. Accept it, let it load, and it will upgrade to Version 1.77 that accepts M-XD cards!
\015\012Then put in the new card. Then FORMAT it by using the MENU screen on the camera.
\015\012Once you do that it will WORK (it took me 2 days to figure this out!!!!!). Good thing this is just a back up camera for me!
