Can't initialize SanDisk Ultra II for S7000

I've attempted to upgrade from the original xd Picture Card 16MB to a SanDisk Ultra II 15 MB/s 4GB media/memory card. When the CF-II is in the camera alone, it says "Can Not Initialize". When I try to use any of the buttons like Menu/OK and arrows, nothing happens. When I put the old card in, it recognizes it but not the new card. I do not have a slot on my computer at home for either card. I hook the camera up to the computer via USB port to download pictures. Is this new 4GB card unuseable in my camera? Is there another way to initialize the card? Will my San Disk 4Gb memory card work with this camera?

Try formatting it in the computer, then initializing it in the camera.
It's possible that the camera can only handle memory up to 1Gb. Try a 1g CF card.

Formatting an CF 4GB sandisk ultra II....How to do


The camera uses FAT16 so it won't be able to use cards bigger than 2GB. IF you can format it, you will only have 2GB space available.
Formatting the card: Press Menu/OK, select Setup, Select Format, press OK untill it's done.

My S7000 has the message "card not initialized"


The S7000 cannot handle cards larger than 2GB.
If you need 4GB you can also fit a 2GB type 2 compact flash card which is the american standard.
For europe you will get a type 1 card this will also fit it is just slightly thinner.

Can't initialize SanDisk Ultra II for S7000


It looks as though the camera cannot support memory as high as 4GB. Capacities above 2.2 GB require that your camera supports "FAT32", and S7000 does not support FAT32.

XD memory card confusion


The xD-Picture Card (xD stands for "extreme digital.") is a flash memory card format developed and introduced to the market in July 2002 by Olympus and Fujifilm, and manufactured by the Toshiba Corporation. xD cards are in Olympus and Fujifilm digital cameras, and are available in a range of sizes, from 16 MB to 2 GB currently. A higher-performance xD card known as Type M came out in 2005, and uses Multi Level Cell (MLC) architecture.
An xD card is 20mm x 25mm x 1.78mm and weighs about 2.8 g, making it significantly smaller than the nearly matchbook-sized CF card and about half the size of the SD/MMC card. As far as size goes, it is much closer to miniSD or RS-MMC. The manufacturer listed write speeds for xD-Picture Cards are: for the 16 MB and 32 MB card, 1.3 MB/s and for the 64MB and higher cards, 3 MB/s. Both offer a minimum read speed of 5 MB/s. The xD Type M cards have a faster standard rate of 4.0MB/s for reading and 2.5MB/s for writing.
Anything up to 2gb will work with your camera, either the type M or the type M+ will be fine.

Olympus xd picture card


Hi,

I've found a 2Gb card that is accepted by Olympus.

Details Here

It's only £17, so seems a worthwhile investment. However, it may not be compatible with panorama shots. If you intend to use these, I'd stick with a 64Mb version. - Or carry two, as they don't exactly take up room.

I've got both versions of the Sandisk. the regular Sandisk is only rated at 2 Mb/sec which explains the slow save speed. the Sandisk Ultra II is much faster compared to the regular Sandisk.
