    Can the camera actually use a 1 Gig card, some older ones cannot use cards
    that big.

    What is a FujiFilm FinePixViewer Camera? Finepix Viewer, as far as I
    know, is a piece of software.

    What model camera do you actually have?

    Is it a type H or type M card?

    Is the camera capable of using that type of card?

    did you format the card in the camera?

    Does the card work in another camera or reader?

    Do other cards work in the camera?

    Have you used the camera before?

    Is the card new , or did you buy it second hand?

    Have you returned it to the dealer for warranty?

    Have you returned the camera to a dealer for testing?

    The camera is Fuji Film FinePix A340 camera , earlier we used Fuji
    512 MB card it worked fine , we bought Olympus 1 GB XD card online in
    amajon . I formated the card in the camera.
    The card type is H.

    I wonder if there is a basic incompatibility between Olympus and
    FujiFilm versions of the XD card?

    It is certainly known to be the case that FujiFilm XD cards are not
    compatible with the panoramic mode of Olympus digicams. Perhaps there
    are other significant differences that prevent an Olympus card working
    in a FujiFilm camera?

    I note that Costco are careful always to offer both brands of XD card,
    presumably to ensure compatibility with the brand of camera. If
    Olympus XD cards worked perfectly in FujiFilm cameras there would be
    no need to offer both brands of card.

    Type H cards should work in your camera IF you have updated your A340s
    firmware to the latest version.
