Having problems with your Fuji FinePix A820 Digital Camera ?

I have put a 4gig sd card in my finepix a900 and it keeps saying "card error"

Answers :

Dear HayLey,
In order to be able to read SD cards bigger than 2 Gb you need to update the firmware of your camera with the one officially released by Fuji. You can find it here.
Obviously you need another smaller SD (non HC - High Capacity) to do this operation.
Follow the detailed steps and you can then enjoy the full size of bigger memories SDHC.


Best regards,
Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card, not an SD card. The A900 is specified to use SD cards. SDHC cards will fit physically into an SD slot. SDHC devices can use SD cards but not the other way around. It's a hardware incompatibility, firmware updates will not make any difference.

Short answer: your A900 is limited to SD cards up to 2GB in size. 4GB and larger cards will not work in this camera.
