Initializing and formatting is the same thing. If your camera have an old firmwareversion, the camra can not use M or H type XD cards. You probably need to update the firmware. You can get the firmware here.

Make sure the batteries are fresh before updating.

I have the same camera with the same problem. You can try formatting the card using the camera. With the camera set as if you are going to look at what's on the card, press the Menu/OK button. Move up to the word Format, press Menu/OK button, FORMAT OK? should display. Press Menu/OK button. This will format your card. Unfortunately, I think there is something wrong with my camera. Still getting 'card not initialized'.

How To Fix You Camera's "Card Error" or "Card Not Initialized" Message


When you recieve a "Card Error" or "Card Not Initialized" message, this indicates that your memory may be temporarily corrupted. This can be due to not formatting your memory card on a consistent basis. Most consumers will use the "delete all" feature and continue to take pictures. By doing this, the file format of the card may become unstable.<br /><br />We recommend formatting your memory card in your camera after saving the images from your previous shooting session. Once a memory card is formatted, the images will not be recoverable.<br /> <br /> If this doesn't fix the Card Error, try replacing your batteries with a new, fresh pair of batteries. Also, if you haven't tried already, replace the memory card with a known working card and see if this fixes your error.

The camera stated protected card/card not initialized


SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

After putting the card into the camera, use the camera's Format command to initialize the card.

Card not initialised.


You need to download the pics to your computer using a card reader. Then, format the card in the camera to completely erase and initialize it.

If I reformat the disk in my camera do I loe all


Yes, formatting the card will erase all the pictures on a card. Formatting initializes the card with an empty file system, which can be useful when a card becomes corrupted.

New memory card


Go to the setup menu and look for "format". That is the same as initialize. That will prepare your card for shooting. It will erase everything that is on the card, so make sure you don't have important stuff already on it.

My screen is saying my card is not initialized


Be very careful here! If you have already taken pictures on the card, you are in danger of losing all of them!

The first thing I would do would be to try to read the card in another device, such as a USB card reader. If you are certain that the card is empty, then you can go to into the camera's menu, where you will find an option to format the card. Format the card, and the error message should go away. Of course, any information formerly on the card will be gone also. If you can, copy any data on the card to a computer and burn it to a CD before you format this card!

Card not initializing


Initializing (or formatting) the card, by definition, removes all data (this includes pictures) from the card. When formatting a memory card, by all practical purposes you are making it blank.
Hope this helps.

Formatting memory stick.


You can use the MEMORY FORMAT functions to completely delete all images and options on the Memory Card, including protected images. * The format function restores the Memory Card to its initial state. * The Memory Card supplied with this camcorder has been formatted already. Attention If you execute the MEMORY FORMAT function, all images will be erased completely and erased images cannot be recovered. 1. Set the mode switch to MEMORY CARD. 2. Set the power switch to PLAYER mode. 3. Press the MENU button. 4. Turn the MENU DIAL to highlight MEMORY and press the ENTER button. The sub menu will appear. 5. Select FORMAT from the list and press the ENTER button. 6. "ALL FILES ARE DELETED! FORMAT REALLY?" appears on the screen. 7. Using the MENU DIAL, select the item. NO : To return to previous menu YES : To start formatting. 8. Press the ENTER button. If you selected the YES, COMPLETE! appears on the screen when the MEMORY CARD formatting is finished. 9. To exit the menu, push the MENU button.
