Error message on camera "Card not initialised"

Hi, I recently tried to delete one photo on my camera but I accidentally pressed clear all, I realised straight away and turned my camera off in the middle of deleting. This has now brought up an error message on my camera when turning it on "Card not initialised" and I am unable to view or take any photos. Please let me know if it is possible to fix this and retreive any photos of if I have lost everything for good? Regards, Miki

    When i turn on my camera with an xD card inside it comes up with the message 'card not initialized', and i'm unable to view or take any photos using the memory card. This used to happen with a memory card so i got a new one, but now with every card i put in, it comes up with the message.

    When i try to upload photos from the card onto my computer, it says theres a formatting problem with the card. I've tried to format it, losing all the pictures in the process, but it seems to be unable to complete the formatting.

    I have a Fujifilm Finepix E550. There were about 80 to 90 pictures on my XD Card. When I tried to load it to my computer, it started to transfer the pictures then it stopped and said "Error" - "No Image". I put the card back into my camera then I got the message "Card Not Initialized". I took the card to a Sam's Club and to a Longs Drugs store to use their digital photo machines and it still says "No Files Found". Are my pictures really lost forever? What did I do wrong? Please help!

I had a similar issue with my Fuji E500. I had been working with it on my Mac, which automatically brings up iPhoto when it's plugged in via the USB port. When I removed the camera from the USB port, it turned on with a Card not initialized message. If your situation was similar to mine, here's how I fixed it: Plug the camera back into the USB port and turn it on. When iPhoto loads, Got to finder and select Eject (unknown) device. Then, when you disconnect the camera and turn it on, the message about not initialized doesn't show up and you're back in business. I hope this helps.

I couldn't find the format function in my Finepix Z70 so I formatted my 'not-initialized' memory card in my DSLR and when I put it back again in the Z70, it worked. Apparently, computer formatting, which I tried in vain, doesn't work but formatting in any other camera with a formatting function does work.

I have FUJIFILM FinePix E550.I have similar issue you have. Yesterday evening I took few picture and load it to my pc. Then I deleted the photos from my memory. After that I find out lenses freeze and can not go back and open the lenses on the LCD monitor show ZOOM ERROR .I try the different way try to get the zoom back. It seems no use at all. And this morning I get to the web site to see the Fujiifilm customer review. I find out a lot of people have the same problem .I think this model have defect. Some people try to pull the zooming to the maximum and turn it until hear click sound. I did that. My zoom errors actually result. I hope this will help you to result your problem.Good luck!

How to unlock a photo in camara


The protect function allows a user to protect a picture from accidental deletion. To unprotect a picture on your camera, scroll to the protected picture that you want to delete, then press the Menu button (the button to the right of the Play button.) Scroll down the menu and you should come to an option that allows you to Protect/Unprotect the picture. Since your picture is currently protected, deselect that option. You should then be able to delete the picture normally.

Alternatively, you could also format the memory card, however this deletes ALL photos and data you have on the memory card. If you are trying to completely clear the memory, this is the best way. After turning on your camera, simply press the Menu button, scroll to Setup, then scroll down to Format. Select Format, it will ask you if you want to format the memory card, or the camera's built-in memory. Format whichever one you want to clear, if you are using a memory card then your pictures are stored on the memory card. It will take a few seconds to format.

Hope this helps.

Sir, I have accidently deleted the photoes taken by our camera yesterday (11/12/2010).Instead of deleting the bad photo of my dog I accidently deleted all my preacious photoes of Leh Ladakh.Can you tell...


You can get back deleted photos from camera with asoftech photo recovery program
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Asoftech-Photo-Recovery/126127714100611?sk=info

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

It says picture error for every picture and cannot delete photos individually. One minute it said card full then every photo said picture error and switched itself off. Its not a happy camera


Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the picture error messages and the card can be used again.

Format of sd card on canon ixus 60 lost pictures


Try PC Inspector "Smart Recovery" from the following listing. Select "Intensive" mode from the File/Settings menu. The program may need to run all night in this mode. If this doesn't recover the photos, am afraid then that they're permanently gone.

Photos missing


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 need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

Card not initialised


It looks like your Mac is writing data back to the card while connected. The camera tries to access the images, but sees the Mac file, and doesn't know what to do. Try accessing the images on the Mac while the camera is connected. If you see files that are not the camera's files or folders, delete them. Don't delete your image files and folders, however.
