I tried to download pictures from my fuji f470 camera onto my PC. I never finished. Then when I turned the camera back on, it says " card not initialized". It won't do any thing. What happened and how do I get my camera to work again and get my pictures off.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
Try formatting the card in the camera using the setting in the camera's menu.
Some makes of xd or sd cards do not work correctly in fuji camera's. Sometimes even formatting them in the camera does not have any effect.
Hello, if the batteries where not fully charged when you where copying pictures to PC, the camera may have corrupted the pictures on the xD card. That is why the camera is showig a grey picture and turning off, it can't work without a valid picture card. A vey good way to restore the pictures on the card is to buy a card reader (they are unexpensive) that can handle xD cards and use a picture restore software.
For the restoration proccess, read the following page:
As you have downloaded all the pics to ur computer. Take the card in ur hand, wipe it's copper plates firmly with your thumb, Insert the card in your camera and format it. It should start working. Mine worked.Good Luck
I don't think [and the museum will certainly say]
This has anything to do with the X-ray/storage whilst in the museums hands.
It could be a processing error or a memory card error.
Try formatting the card in the camera and taking a new batch of images
Try another card.
This will estasblish card or camera.
If card - buy another card
If camera -checxk on the price of a repair but I suspect it will mean when you see the price
Buy another camera
