Question about Fuji FinePix F10 Digital Camera

'Card not Initialized'

Hi, My fuju F10 finepix is displaying 'card not intitialized' I have taken it out and wiped it, but that didn't work. I have tried to delete all the frames but it won't let me. I'm abroad and don't have my manual with me. I've also forgotten a spare card, so I'm in a bit of a situation. I am reluctant to buy a new one because I have a few at home. I've even taken the battery out - but that didn't help. I need step-by-step instructions! I'm not that technically minded! Many thanks! FM

Still not sure exactly what happened technically, but starting with the FixYa "Best Solution" was the key. I attached the camera to my MacPro laptop, opened the camera-related icon which appears on the screen, and clicked on each of  the files that came up. The files disappeared after a few clicks without my having to use "delete", and when I tried the camera again it worked fine.

I just had the same issue with my Fuji F10 Finepix camera and of course all you can get the camera to do is tell you 'card not initialized'...and nothing else works! I resolved it by attaching the camera to the MAC, accessing the camera files thru the MAC by going to the icon that pops up on the desktop for the camera, deleting the files in the camera Fuji directory, then detached the camera and it was all back to normal. I assume that could have also been done the same way on a PC via USB port, accessing the camera via 'My Computer'. I believe the root cause was: I had accessed the photos on the camera via the MAC and iPhoto, then after transferring the photos to the MAC, deleted the photos thru the iPhoto delete option. This in fact did not delete the photos on the camera, somehow causing this 'card not initialized' condition. CW

just try removing the memory card and at the side you'll see a tiny switch,slide this in the opsite direction to where it is now and that should work. its a locking system on the memory card, it sometimes gets moved when we remove the card form the camers or put it in a michine to get pics. hope that works.

Hi there remove the card and and use the camera memory for photography. If you success then format the memory card from computer. Make sure there is no virus in your card or computer. After that fix it back and on the camera. I hope your problem will be solve. If your face the same problem in camera internal memory option then i suggest you visit service center for repair. Your camera software might corrupted. I hope its working after memory card formating. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Camera display says card not initialized. how do i initialize a fujifilm 256 mb xd picture card?


The card needs to be "formatted" in the camera. This is found in the "setup" menu. It will wipe everything off the card, so if there's anything important on it now, save your data to a disk or hard drive. If there isn't anything important on it, perform the format and it will be like a new card. If this helped, please rate the solution favorably. Thanks

Getting card not initialized; has worked fine for 3 years


Removing the sard should not cause a problem. Try cleaning the contacts on the card with a dry cloth. Try another card-this will verify whether it is the camera or the card causing you problems.

Card not initialized for finepixa360


Assuming the card you are using has been working previously in the same camera, performing a "format" of the card should wipe out any bad or corrupt data that is lingering on the card. This will also wipe out any images that may be on it, however. To format the card you need to go into the "set-up" menu and follow a couple of simple steps. That ought to do it.
