Try http://www.spartanphotocenter.com/digital-camera-sensor-cleaning.html the card needs a data recovery (using special recovery software) and then a reformat. That may get most of your pictures back, but there will most likely be some (can't say how many or why) that will be corrupt and not usable. If the corrution is really bad no pictures will be available. No way to know except by attemoting a data recovery.

It is possible that the memory card was damaged. This would be by coincidence. Just in case only the formatting is damaged you can try to format the memory card.

As far as reading the card is concerned, if the Mac has issues to read a PC format then it will not be able to read the card from your camera.

Screen reading memory card not initialized


It sounds like your XD card is corrupted. How and why i couldn't tell you. You will need to get the pictures recovered from the card using a special software (image recovery software, can down load for free from some web sites, or some companies can try and do it for you) and then try and format the card in the camera. DO NOT FORMAT THE CARD BEFORE YOU RETRIVE YOUR IMAGES. If you do all traces of the images may be lost.

All the best and happy snapping.

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.

    According to Fuji you camera can only use cards up to 512 meg.
    Look here:

    XD Card Not Read by Computer


    Hi cruyf, It sounds as if the data (pictures) on your memory card has become corrupted. There are lots of programs that claim to be able to recover deleted files. These are corrupted files so I?m not sure how well they will do. The first program I reference will show you what it can recover but if you want to get the images you have to pay $40 to activate the software. I?ve used this before and it worked for me but be aware there are lots of other programs, some free. Here is the link: http://www.diskinternals.com/products/deleted-data-recovery/ Here is another that claims to be able to recover both deleted and corrupted files: http://www.pcinspector.de/file_recovery/uk/welcome.htm After you have pulled your pictures off the card (or if you give up) you should use the cameras format utility on the card before you use it again. I?ve had this problem on memory cards before and this has fixed my problem. Let us know how it goes and don?t forget to rate the posting.
