Question about Fuji Finepix Z20fd Digital Camera
My fuji took loads of pics and i have downloaded them to picassa as i always do, put card back in camera and it states not initialized, put card back in PC and it states it has to re-format, as i have already downloaded pics i clicked ok but it states it cannot complete format, its an olympus xd m+ 2gb card
I had a similar problem with my Fuji FinePix S5500; nothing I tried 'in-camera' would allow me to reformat the xD Picture Card and every time I turned the camera on, I got the same error message - "card not initialised".
I have used the camera with the same xD card since purchased over 5 years ago without problem. I believe this issue was caused by uploading the images on the card to a Mac instead of the usual Windows PC.
This solution fixed the problem, allowing me to reformat the card...
Connect the camera to your PC using USB2 and turn the camera on so the PC detects the device. If you have images on the disc, it is a good idea to upload them to the PC (whether you choose to delete images after uploading or not, is up to you, but reformating will delete them anyway, so I do).
When the images have uploaded, go to START, go to Computer, click on Device then right-click and choose Format. From the new window that opens, choose Default settings then click OK... job done! Be patient while it reformats, the time it takes will vary according to disc capacity (mine was 134MB and took around 4 minutes).
Hope this sorts it for you; good luck!

It sounds like the card is faulty (it does happen). I had one that acted similarly. You could try using the card in another camera to check - I have a card that works OK in Olympus camera but not at all in Fuji!
Best of luck
