Question about Fuji FinePix S602 Zoom Digital Camera
This error message came up on my camera it is referring to a card that i had used dozens of times with no problem i searched for the error message and it did not come up (why is it that electronic manufactures will create error messages and not even explain what they mean on their web sites?????????? - but that is beside the point) how do i get this card 'initialized'?
I had a similar issue with an XD card in my Fuji FinePix S3000. I had used the several times for a couple of years without problem. The issue appeared right after dowloading pictures from the card inserted in my notebooks' card reader - an operation I have done several times in the same notebook without any problem. I have fixed the issue going to Menu, Option, SetUp, Format and choosed OK. Deleted all the pictures (make a copy before if the card is readable in the pc as it was my case) but made the card readable again.

Fine Pix F601z >> I always forget how to initialize my smart card... uggh! Here are the instructions:
Go to MENU button, click
Select ERASE (trash can), click
Scroll down to FORMAT, click
FORMAT OK? will come up, click OK
You are now ready to take pictures...
Now who ever thought to put the FORMAT key in the trash can and not in SET UP???? I don't get it.

Ok, I have the same problem and this is what I have so far. I have spoken to Lexar (card manufacturer) and they have nothing in their knowledge base regarding the sudden failure of my card (a 256 mg CF card 40x wa compatible) to be read in one device and not others. My card will not initialize in my camera, but will format and read in my PC in more than one reader. Also, I have tried to use a different CF card in my camera and after it took a while to reformat it to its own standard it worked fine. Calling Fuji support (In Edison NJ) got me little info. The first tech said in effect that if the camera read a different card it was the first card and not the camera. Telling him the card read everywhere except the camera got me nowhere. Heres the good part. There is a firmware upgrade for the camera. There is a possibility that the cards have been formatted in such a way that the camera can no longer recognize it (a kind of low level format comes to mind) You might try reformatting your card in a Non-XP system (win 98-2000) and see if that yields results. I don;t have access to an older system that supports a USB connection so I can't try this myself. Also, try another CF card and see what happens Ed

Try these solutions to fix the SD card not initialized error message:
Remove the card from the camera and then re-insert the card back to its slot and see if the problem is solved or not.
Second, clean the memory card, particularly the metal parts of the card and make sure it contact properly.
If both above solutions fails, then the last option to fix the issue is to format the card.

I have a FujiPix F700.
I rec'd this message, after I used the card in another camera..or
perhaps a PC, I forget.
Then use the cursor pad, or joypad to go over to the
right to Setup.
Select , then choose Format, and you will have to select Yes, next.
It will Format the card, and then you are set.
This works every time, no guess work.

I had this problem after my boyfriend uploaded pictures onto his Mac. It was fixed by going to MENU on the camera, then SET, FORMAT, and click yes. It will erase all of your information, but fix the problem instantly. Hope this helps!

Format it as fat on xp, and then format it from within the camera. I noticed it worked much faster when formated from the camera.

THANKS ED! I tried formatting my 4 G card on a back up PC running Win 2000 and unlike XP it gave me a choice to format FAT, NTFS and FAT 32... I tried formatting with FAT and it worked like a charm! Thanks again for the tip! doug
