You just need to reformat the card, which you can do through the camera.  I sometimes get this problem with my memory card when I take it out of my card reader without properly ejecting it first.  The camera will say something along the lines of "Card Not Initialized".  So, turn on your camera, hit "menu", then go to "option" (and subset "set up") , then "format" and go to the right and then click on OK and if I remember correctly, it will ask whether you really want to reformat, which you do.  Caution though---you will lose any pictures on your card by doing this.  But it should solve your problem!  Good luck!

May be you inserted a memory card formatted with your PC. Format the memory card using the Format function in the camera menu. Format function can be found in the setup menu of the camera.
If this does not work, try replacing the memory card.

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.

    M512 MB card dosen't work


    I bought a 256MB card a few years back and had the same problem. I had to upgrade the camera's firmware to version 1.77. I went to Fuji's site under archived models and downloaded the zip file for it. now my card works pretty well... only problem now with the camera is that it likes to eat more and more batteries.. age perhaps???

    'Card not initialized'


    I just bought a sweet FUJI FinePix S5700...
    I could not for the life of me understand why I was getting this message, and I was getting very upset !!!
    I have a brand new Sandisk 2GB card, and it was driving me CRAZY.
    My solution turned out to be a very simple one.
    When your computer sees your card and you need to format it, it will give you TWO options. Either format using "FAT32", or just "FAT".
    The FAT32 option gave me no results.
    I tried again using simply "FAT", and it works just fine!
    GOOD LUCK!

    Problem with 'write error' on memory card


    Make sure you got a card that is compatible to your camera. In my case, I bought a new 512mb Fuji XD card to get the same "write error" message. I needed a type "H" but bought "M". I had to go to www.fujifilmusa.com to upgrade my camera to be compatible with the newer cards that are out now.
