Formatting Camera Card on FinePix S5200?

Was able to look through my photos on my camera 15 mins.ago & not when I went back to scan through them again, I get a message saying "Card not initialized"?

Looked through the settings and reached the Format tab- The only choices it give me is to Erase pictures?!?

Where else can I go and can this be fixed without losing all my photos & videos that I have on that card?

Plug the camera into the computer. If you have a mac, "control click" and then "eject".
If you have a PC, go to your task bar at the bottom/side and go to "safely remove hardware", and select the camera.

After I take a picture, why does the screen read write error?


This can happen from time to time with digital cameras. Usually you can solve this by formatting the memory card (transfer your photos first!) via the camera menu.

Getting the following message, "Card not


Try "Formatting" the card again and see if it doesn't work. You should be able to do this in the camera through the Menu choices. If it still doesn't work, then something went bad with the card and it will have to be replaced. Moisture and just a small electrical shock such as from your own static electricity while holding a card can possibly cause this to happen.

Do you lose your pictures on your memory card when you try to reformat


Yes...formatting completely erases the card. Download the pics to your computer first before formatting the card in the camera.

When i turn my camera on it says 'card not initialized'. What does this mean?


File structure on the card can be damaged. Format card in your camera using camera menu. Note: all images on card after formatting will be LOST. If you have something valuable there - try to download images from card to PC using card reader.

I have a Fujifilm finepix camera and my fujifilm XD card has a read error and won't show my pictures on the camera or in a card reader. Are there any free recovery programs out there?


Sometimes memory card error happens without any notice. But luckily most of the time we are able to fix the memory card error and get back files on the memory card. Take a look at this guide:

"Communication Error" cannot use the USB setting to transfer pics to computer have to use "picture bridge" plug and play won't work, tried on 3 different computers


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


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.
