You need to "format" the memory card in the camera, using the "setup" menu. This will wipe everything off the card, but the card should then be useable.

When I try to turn on my FinePix A600 is beeps, the lens comes out, the light on the back flashes yellow, then it flashes red, the lens goes back in and the camera turns off. I bought a second FinePix...


I'm curious....the camera came out in 2006....how did you buy a second one?...and more importantly, why? If something doesn't work, the first thing people do isn't to go out and buy another one. Anyway, from your description, the problem seems to lie with the cards, not the camera. All memory cards must be formatted (sometimes called "initialized") in the camera before use and regularly after downloading the pics to the computer. This erases the card and brings it back to original condition so download any pics you want to save using a separate cardreader if necessary and then, format/initialize them in the camera.Also, how old are these cards?....they don't last forever.

How do you initialise a memory card without losing the photos


You can't. Initializing (formatting) your memory card will erase the card. But formatting the card with your camera is a necessary step to either rejuvenate the card, or minimize later file error problems that will crop up if you don't do such. Backup/download the photos that are on the card to your computer before initializing.

When I insert the CF card, and then turn the camera on, I get a reading that the card needs to be formatted. I then try to format the card, and it says that the card cannot be formated. I looked inside,...


If trying another card doesn't work then reformat your CF card in your computer choosing a Quick Format option. Then place it in the camera, do an immediate card format in the camera. If you've got images on the card now DO NOT SHOOT ANYTHING on the card before running an image recovery program like Sandisk RescuePro. As long as you don't shoot anything new on the card RescurPro should recovery all the existing images.

When turn on the camera 'Card Not Initialized" appears !!??


A couple of steps before sending for repair:
clean points of contact between card and camera. Do this gently and becareful not to get anything stuck in the camera! Lint or any other thing.
Verify you are using the correct card and inserting correctly.
Sometimes simple wear and tear might cause the paths to not read the card anymore. Teleplan Camera Repair can fix this, get your immediate online quote: http://www.teleplancamerarepair.com/

Camera display says card not initialized. how do i initialize a fujifilm 256 mb xd picture card?


The card needs to be "formatted" in the camera. This is found in the "setup" menu. It will wipe everything off the card, so if there's anything important on it now, save your data to a disk or hard drive. If there isn't anything important on it, perform the format and it will be like a new card. If this helped, please rate the solution favorably. Thanks

Card not initialized


Go through the setup menu and go to "Set", then option 1 and format. Should do the trick, as long as you don't have capacity issues (how big of a card did you buy?).

Problem


My camera which was working already suddently stopped working. When I want to do anything on this viz. try to take a new snap or try to erase any/all frames, on screen I see "card not initialized". I have cleaned the smart card with a soft cloth, but no results have been seen.
