I agree. I'd never use it again for something important.

I am now back at home and have taken the card, formatted it in the GX1 shot an image, checked & deleted & reformatted then put into X100 all seems fine!! reformatted in X100 and all seems fine.
I will not be using it in the X100 but happy to continue using it in the GX1 and now using it as a spare - possible glitch I hope but I will be watching the card carefully and always have a spare with me.

Out of 4 cards and 3 cameras, I have one card that the K20 won't recognize. It's an older 1gig. Formating did not help. I keep it as a backup.

The failure to start problem hit me last week.
It began by failing to start after a night's rest but then it became more frequent.
Having read this thread , my first thought was that it was caused by a new Sandisk Extreme Pro 95mbs/sec card.
I then tried 2 batteries and 2 cards including reformatting and resetting the camera but no solution.
Oddly , by removing the battery for a few seconds and then reinserting it would sometimes wake up.
I've turned off the sleep modes and power saving options and for the moment it seems better but I'm annoyed at the shots I've lost at a family wedding while I was messing about with it.
My feeling is that the defect is caused by the Fuji Brand battery not delivering sufficient current to start and not a memory card problem.

Changed my X100 this afternoon for copy number 3 ; if this one goes wrong it's goodbye Fuji.
At the store the salesman noticed that although the camera wouldn't start , the sliding metal leaf in the viewfinder was rising slightly then jamming so having decided that the unit was defective he was happy to replace it.
I did notice that the metal lugs of the new camera seem to be of a different material - presumably to counteract the wear that has been reported elsewhere.

I had the same problem nothing wrong with the camera after I downloaded the pictures from the disc to my iMac I then put the card back into the x100 and it would not switch on. The only solution is to format the card after you have saved the pictures and the camera will be fine.

Common problem; also happens when transferring to iPad. In my case, the camera will switch on after a minute or so; but that's way too long. So I've adopted your strategy of formatting in the camera after each transfer.

Have the same issue if I connect the card to iPad. The camera starts up like its on a go slow. format the card in pc or another camera it will work.
