How do you inialize a SD memory card

I traded memory cards. I rec'd a SD in trade for a XD. I was told after the trade that I would have to re-formate since he had used his SD for music and I needed it for my new camera. I put it in the camera and it says I have to inialize the card. How do I do this? There are no instructions in the camera or the user's manuel.

    My camera is a Fuji digital 8.1, A850. As far as another SD card reader, I don't really understand what else I could have to read the card. My husband has a digital camera which has a SD card, would that be a reader? My Epson printer as card slots, could that be a reader?

    Did the camera come with a CD? If so a copy of the manual may be there. I'm scrubbing the web for a download of the manual. Steve

    What is the make/model of the camera? Do you have another SD card reader?

Hi,
Some cameras can not handle 2 GB and larger memory cards..I believe this could be the case for you..I am afraid if it does not FORMAT it ,you can not use it to take a picture either..
Just for testing purposes,if you cant FORMAT in the camera, take the card out and try to format it on your computer (you may need Memory Card Reader " THAT COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR MEMORY CARD.THIS ..As an example of this unit pls visit the URL below....you can buy it any electronic Market too...

The A402 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible. You need to use cards 2GB and smaller.

My kodak M753 camera will not format ANY memory card. I have tried all kinds of cards. It just keeps telling me over and over that memory card needs to be formatted.It will say it is reading card then...


The lever on your SD card might be turned the wrong way so it is reading protective. Pls. turn the lever.

Your camera Memory card support is: SD/MMC up to 2 Gigabyte.
If you use any other card. the camera could give you a message like the one you're experiencing.

Try with a different SD card that is supported by the camera.

An OoW. repair for this model for this fault is about 48 pouonds + shipping. KODAK also offers a Trade up option where you will have the opportunity to trade up to a newer model 25-30% cheaper than the market price.

Display says card not initialized when a new xd picture card is inserted in the fuji fine pix A340 how do i initialize or format the card


the camera cannot use XD picture card and multimedia card (MMC). SD and SDHC can be used. for compatibility check this http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/accessories/card/a/ you might need to update your product depending on your serial no.
to format the card, press menu to display menu setup, press right to move to setup 2 (3rd tab) you will see Format. click Format to format the memory ("SD" is displayed if memory card is inserted and "IN" (internal memory) if no memory card. hope this helps

Sd card needs to be formated?


Did you put the card into your phone. This does not sound right
that your pc did not see the folders on the card.

Do not format card. This is a free file recovery software that ill post below, the ones you pay for like data doctor are better.

Try and recover the data before you do anything.

Read how to use the recover software before you use it.
