An option that you can do is to format the memory card on a computer. YOu have to remove it from the camera and plug it in a computer then format via My computer. And then put it back in the camera. Another possible option is to remove the card and then turn the camera on. then off and then plug the card back in then format it in the camera.

Card not initalized


Is the card larger than 2GB.
If so its too big for the S7000.
The only solution to more capacity is 2GB xd card + 2GB compact flash card.
Or just use as many XD cards as you need.

Memory chip not initalized


Sometimes the camera makers forget to explain that "initialized" means the same as "formatting". Look up "formating" in your camera manual (also available as a download from www.fujifilmusa.com

Hi. firstly thanks for your help but i still have the same problem


FROM WHAT I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIND ON YOUR CAMERA IT SEEMS THAT YOU CAN RESET THE CAMERA THRU THE MENU.YOU SAID YOU INITALIZED THE CAMERA AND IT WORKED. WAS THIS THE RESET? AND NOW YOU CAN'T TAKE A PICTURE? AND WHAT IS THE EXACT ERROR CODE IT SHOWS YOU? I'M NOT SURE IF I HAVE THE RIGHT CODE, SINCE I WAS WORKING WITH ANOTHER CLIENT WITH A H7 ALSO. I HAVE E91:01 WRITTEN DOWN, BUT NEED TO CHECK THIS WITH YOU.OK? THIS IS A REALLY NICE CAMERA AND IF IT IS LESS THAN A YEAR OLD, IT SHOULD STILL BE UNDER WARRANTEE FROM SONY. LET ME KNOW ON THIS, BECAUSE IF IT IS UNDER WARANTEE YOU MIGHT WANT SONY TO REPAIR IT FOR YOU. THEY SHOULD DO THIS FOR FREE, MINUS SHIPPING. REPLY, SO WE CAN GET THIS SOLVED. OK? I WANT TO HELP YOU SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.

Card problem


It is possible that the largest card this camera will accept is 256MB. Check your manual to be certain.
At 3.2MP this will store up to almost 300 images so it should be of ample size.
Regarding the next question, I don't believe it is possible to lock an Xd memory card. The writhe error is likely due to the above or damage to the card or the card port on the camera.

The "E30" error code is displayed when reading/writing data on a storage card has failed. Especially, the error code "E30" may appears when you tried to remove a storage card while the camera was processing data. Solution To clear the "E30" error, try performing the following procedure. 1. Try using another storage card. If you have another storage card, try loading it in the camera. If the error code is not displayed when the other CF card is loaded, there may be something wrong with the first one rather than with the camera. 2. Use your computer's ScanDisk utility to check the storage card for errors. Use ScanDisk to check the storage card for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your operating system or Windows Help for further instructions. (If you are using a Macintosh, use the "Disk First Aid" program to check for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your Macintosh OS for further information.) Be sure to back up the data on the storage card on the computer before you check the CF card. If a card error or card failure occurs when you use your computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the storage card. Follow ScanDisk's on-screen instructions to solve the problem. 3. Format the storage card with your camera Try to format the storage card with your camera. Please refer to the "Camera User Guide" for your camera for instructions on formatting CF cards. Also, please note that formatting a storage card will erase all data on the card. Once the storage card is formatted, follow the procedure described in step 2 above and use your computer's ScanDisk on your computer to check the CF card for errors. If a card error or card failure occurs when you are using computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the storage card. If turning the camera off and then on again, and then performing steps 1 to 3 above fails to clear the error, a camera malfunction may have occurred. Please contact the retail store where you purchased the camera or the nearest Canon service center. If the error code is displayed right after you took a picture, the image may not have been recorded. Switch the camera to playback mode to check if it was recorded. Precautions for handling a storage card: - Do not remove a storage card or turn the camera off while the camera is recording, loading, or erasing data on a storage card. - storage cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not bend, force, or subject them to shocks or vibration. - Do not attempt to disassemble or alter a storage card. - Place the storage card in the supplied case for storage. - Moving a storage card rapidly between temperature extremes may cause condensation in the card, leading to potential malfunctions. To avoid condensation, place the storage card in a sealed plastic bag before moving it into a different temperature area and allow it to adjust slowly to the new temperature. If condens
