SOURCE: card not initialized

Go through the setup menu and go to "Set", then option 1 and format. Should do the trick, as long as you don't have capacity issues (how big of a card did you buy?).

SOURCE: How do I initialize a picture card?

Turn the camera viewer on (on your finepix 3800, it is the middle position where you preview photos). Press the "menu" button and you will be presented with four options, and the top option is FORMAT. Select format and your card will be usable again. Two things to keep in mind. Any pictures on the card will be lost, and when you press the menu button as I described it may take a few seconds before those four options appear. As an FYI, the most common cause of the card needing to be reformatted is when the pictures are loaded to a MAC computer and the USB cable is pulled before you eject the camera.

HOW DO YOU INITIALIZE PICTURE CARD FOR A FUJI FINEPIX A330 CAMERA


"initialize" means to format the card in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics first using a card reader if necessary. Then, with the card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" or "initialize" and follow the on-screen instructions.

Can't take pictures due to memory card issue.

Screen reading memory card not initialized


It sounds like your XD card is corrupted. How and why i couldn't tell you. You will need to get the pictures recovered from the card using a special software (image recovery software, can down load for free from some web sites, or some companies can try and do it for you) and then try and format the card in the camera. DO NOT FORMAT THE CARD BEFORE YOU RETRIVE YOUR IMAGES. If you do all traces of the images may be lost.

All the best and happy snapping.

Screen reading memory card not initialized


Hello


  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    When I turn on the camera, a message appears on the screen that says "Card not initialized?" What does that mean, why can't I take pictures?


    You need to format the card before you can use it. Pick "Format" from the camera's menu to initialize the card.
