Re: Fuji finepix s602

Usually a bad card in my experience - I'm too tight to buy decent cards, and quite a few have given me problems. Luckily they're quite cheap nowadays!!

You could try using a PC with card reader to format them first, and cleaning the contacts carefully.

Hope this helps.

Im getting a error message when I turn the camera on it says, ! card not initialized I can't seem to figure out how to fix this

Your camera wants you to format the card in the camera. This will erase it so download any pictures you want to save first using a card reader if necessary.

I cannot format cards in my Fuji S602 zoom.

Make sure your card is compatible for your camera, and or it is not defective. I know that with some camera models the card must meet specific specs. Consult your camera dealer or call Fuji photo support to verify if your card is compatible.

If you have the adabtor for your card to be used directly on your computer, you can see if formating your card with the computer will help. This is not the proper fix, but it may work for you.

Card not initialized, how do I format this in the camera, we don't see a menu option. Thanks

Format option is in the set menu. Make sure the CF card is in correct way round. It will fit 2 ways if a bit worn or forced. back of card should face you. I know you think it is correct but check anyway.

Fuji s602z CF II card not initializing

I've bought a SanDisk ExtremeIII 4GB CFI card. Ofcourse, at the beginig nothing worked. Camera format command worked neither (initializing problem,...). I then formated my card through a car reader on fat16 and now everything works. Just make this command: format <volume>: /FS:FAT. After checking and formathing the card, you will be asked to go on by 64K size of cluster. say Yes.

Finepix s7000 new 4gb card not initialized fujifilm cf

The S700 as it came from the factory CANNOT use a 4 gig card. You must go to the Fuji USA website and download the firmware update. You will need to have the program that came with the camera installed, and the cable that also came with the camera. Make sure that you have fresh batteries in the camera. Instructions are on the Fuji website along with the download for the firmware. You are actually going to "flash" the firmware in the camera just as if you were doing a BIOS flash in your computer. Personally, I only use smaller cards and remove the pics soon after I take them. A 2 gig card will hold about 150 full rez pics. Get them out of the camera....don't save them forever on the card!

Memory card

Because this camera only understads FAT16 formatting, it does not accept any card larger than 2GB so your best bet is to use the current crop of standard 2GB CF cards, most newer ones (usually 16X and faster) are alsa fast enough for continuous VGA video as well. The best brands IMO are Lexar and Sandisk, but avoid the WA enabled cards, this camera can't make use of WA, it just slows the througput down.

Alternatively you may partition your 8GB card to a 2GB partition, but the rest of the card won't be accessible.

Card not initialized

I had a similar issue with an XD card in my Fuji FinePix S3000.

I had used the several times for a couple of years without problem.

The issue appeared right after dowloading pictures from the card inserted in my notebooks' card reader - an operation I have done several times in the same notebook without any problem.

I have fixed the issue going to Menu, Option, SetUp, Format and choosed OK.

Deleted all the pictures (make a copy before if the card is readable in the pc as it was my case) but made the card readable again.
