Tip & How-To about Cameras
When you recieve a "Card Error" or "Card Not Initialized" message, this indicates that your memory may be temporarily corrupted. This can be due to not formatting your memory card on a consistent basis. Most consumers will use the "delete all" feature and continue to take pictures. By doing this, the file format of the card may become unstable.
We recommend formatting your memory card in your camera after saving the images from your previous shooting session. Once a memory card is formatted, the images will not be recoverable.
If this doesn't fix the Card Error, try replacing your batteries with a new, fresh pair of batteries. Also, if you haven't tried already, replace the memory card with a known working card and see if this fixes your error.
