"Card Not Initialized"

I have inserted several different Compact Flash cards into my camera, formatted each repeatedly, and I still receive the same message. Anything else I can try before I take it to a camera shop?

    i'm having the same issue... can't get the compact flash cards (a 512MB and a 4GB) to initialize. it says they are formatting when I'm in the set-up mode, but as soon as I go to shooting mode, I get "Card Not Initialized" in White Letters/Red Background on the screen.

Yes take a bottle of air blaster commonly used fo computers and blow out the card bay then on your computer insert the compact flash card and click on it erase the disk do not format it at all then insert it into your camera. the camera will format it with what the camera uses.

I received a new Compact Flash card (4GB) for my Nikon and when I put it in the camera it says out of memory?


If there are any pics in the internal memory, you need to get rid of them. With no card in the camera, download any you want to save and then go into the menu and find "format"...follow the instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert the new card and do the "format" thing again.

My S7000 has the message "card not initialized"


The S7000 cannot handle cards larger than 2GB.
If you need 4GB you can also fit a 2GB type 2 compact flash card which is the american standard.
For europe you will get a type 1 card this will also fit it is just slightly thinner.

The S700 as it came from the factory CANNOT use a 4 gig card. You must go to the Fuji USA website and download the firmware update. You will need to have the program that came with the camera installed, and the cable that also came with the camera. Make sure that you have fresh batteries in the camera. Instructions are on the Fuji website along with the download for the firmware. You are actually going to "flash" the firmware in the camera just as if you were doing a BIOS flash in your computer. Personally, I only use smaller cards and remove the pics soon after I take them. A 2 gig card will hold about 150 full rez pics. Get them out of the camera....don't save them forever on the card!

Internal memory??


Highly recommend that you consider using a card reader to download you pictures. You insert the camera's memory card into the reader, and then insert the reader into a USB port on your computer. The card then shows up as a hard drive so that you can simply copy/paste or drag your picture files onto your computer. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples of CF card readers from Amazon:

Also, if the card has somehow become corrupted, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos. Take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

You will also need to use a card reader with this software. Finally AFTER you've recovered your photos, recommend formatting the card IN YOUR CAMERA to prevent this from happening again. Note that formatting will totally erase your card. Turn on the camera, press the menu button, select the tools menu. Go down to the selection that states your CF card's memory capacity and select it. Then follow the formatting prompts.

Card errors


I suspect that the format of the camera is different than that of the computer. When I have run into similar problems, I have had success reformating the disk in the camera. If yours will not work, try another!...Dave
