Be very careful here! If you have already taken pictures on the card, you are in danger of losing all of them!

The first thing I would do would be to try to read the card in another device, such as a USB card reader. If you are certain that the card is empty, then you can go to into the camera's menu, where you will find an option to format the card. Format the card, and the error message should go away. Of course, any information formerly on the card will be gone also. If you can, copy any data on the card to a computer and burn it to a CD before you format this card!

Camara says card not initialized can i solve this problem or do i need a new memory card finepix f480


You need to do this with all new cards. Go into the menu and find either "format" or "initialize" and follow the on-screen instructions. This erases the card and prepares it for the camera's operating system.

Initializing xd card


Put the camera into play or review mode then hit the ok/menu button on back and format the card. This will erase all of your photos so make sure you've backed them up or download them.
