I would take them to a computer and copy them to it, and see if you can read them there. It may be that there's some bad sectors on the removable media (memory card), or the camera itself is having some issues reading it. Either way, if they are recoverable, your best bet is to move them to something that is more stable, and as soon as possible.

Once they are on the computer, try to open them in whatever software can do so. If they're a RAW camera format, you'll need a special codec (driver-sort of thing) or software to read them. If you're saving them as JPEG/JPG or another common file type, your computer should be able to open them natively.

If they are still unable to be opened (and give you errors) then either the memory card is bad, or something is wrong with the way the camera is saving the files. In either case, I would replace that memory card as soon as possible.

Download photos computer


Download photos from any camera is highly unrecommended because that quickly disharges the camera battery. Instead, turn camera off and then open battery door. See picture memory card at camera edge, push in and release to pop up. Then, draw card out of the slot taking care to avoid finger contact with contacts. Close battery door. No insert card into card reader on computer. (Most computers these days have built in reader. USB interface readers can be purchase at low cost.)
If the upload start up dialog does not auto star, then open Computer and double cick open it there. A menu will appear offering wholesalee import you can chose Review Folders in Explorer. Once opened, photos can be handled and stored ot computer like any other file. It is preferable to copy files as opposed to moving them, using camera itself to delete files. Now close Fuji folder and initiate safe removal. When approved, remove memory card and reinsert in camera. Question answered.

Suddenly when I try to download pictures from my camera, the camera utility window opens briefly displaying my pictures then an error window shows that says "failed to initialize program" and it...


Consider 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Screen reading memory card not initialized


Hello


  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    Card not initialized for finepixa360


    Assuming the card you are using has been working previously in the same camera, performing a "format" of the card should wipe out any bad or corrupt data that is lingering on the card. This will also wipe out any images that may be on it, however. To format the card you need to go into the "set-up" menu and follow a couple of simple steps. That ought to do it.

    Fuji FinePix 3800 Initialization glitch


    Yes, you'll need to format the xD Picture Card. You may be able to do this inside the camera in the options, if not - you'll need to connect it to your computer to get it to appear as a drive letter in "My Computer". Select the new drive in My Computer, this will be your card, right click it and click Format, then proceed to format it. This should sort your problem out.
