Ok, I know that this means I have to format the card but, I had several hundred photos on the card prior to getting this message. Is there any way to get the pictures that were on the card before I recieved this message?????

Re: card not initialized
You can try a file/data recovery software/program. Do a Google and use one that suits your need. A fine example is "GetDataBack for FAT" by runtime.org . You can download a free trial version here
. Good luck and kind regards.

If this is a new card, then the message means it needs to be formatted.
If it is a card you have used successfully before, then it sounds like it has become corrupted. You may be able to recover pics from it by connecting to a computer, perhaps using a card reader. If not, you will have to format the card to use it again, but will lose the pictures on it.
I had to re-format the card losing all the photos but I had saved them in iPhoto so that was ok. I think the problem was caused by me incorrectly closing down after downloading them to iPhoto, so my fault and lesson learned.
Bonnie, I think I can help you; please note that this will erase all photos in memory while formatting the card.
Turn camera on, press the Menu/OK button, arrow down until you get to Setup then press the Menu/OK button. Now arrow down to the last item on page 2 which is FORMAT and press the Menu/OK button. Using the left right buttons select OK and press the Menu/OK button, camera will now format the card and you should be back in business.
you said 'I can't develop the pics.' Explain what you are trying to do here The message no intitalizedcould also mean not formated. Have you had images on this card before or is it a new one? Much more detail required.
