Don't be panic. you can try some data recovery software. You can see
http://download.cnet.com/Asoftech-Data-Recovery/3000-2248_4-75328850.html?part=dl-75328850&subj=dl&tag=button
It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the memory card (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the memory card and recover your files.

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.

I have a finepix S602Z and when i turn it on it comes up as card error this happens on different cards any ideas on how to correct this please


I suggest you take the batteries out and wait two minutes and reinsert them. Making sure that they are inserted correctly. If this doesn't work, try replacing the batteries with new ones.

If you formatted the memory card using your computer, or deleted images using your computer, you now need to Format the card with the CAMERA. One of the camera menus will have a Format command.
This is what FujiFilmUSA.com has to say about the Card Error:

I just purchased this camera and inserted a memory card. Now, when I try to take a picture, I get the 'card protected' error. How do I remove this error and take pictures?


Without knowing the make and model of this new camera I can only speculate on the problem however in my opinion you need to unlock the protected card I'm giving a diagram of an SD card here.

Slide this little switch to the top or towards the gold contacts.
Another thing you will need to do is format the memory card your camera may call this initialize.
Formatting a memory card makes it ready to accept information files from the camera. I hope you have your manual because without knowing the camera make and model i can only suggest where to look for this feature. Most often this function is in the set up menu, once the card is unlocked you need to find this format highlight it and press the okay button once done the camera will function properly as long as you have set the day date and time. Day date and time once set is held in the camera internal memory so you don't have to input the information each time you turn the camera off and back on again. Happy New Year

Have a Finepix S602Zoom which on warning display now shows ''Card not initialised''- have bought a new 4GB card- but still have the same problem.. Any ideas - software prob?


This is a common error in the FinePix product range. When you receive a "Card Error" or "Card Not Initialized" message, this indicates that your camera's memory may be temporarily corrupted. This can be due to not formatting your memory card on a consistent basis. Most users will use the "delete all" feature and continue to take pictures but by doing this the file format of the card may become unstable and unusable.

Fuji recommends 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. So format the current cards and they should be useable again.

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.

The camera screen displays error message


This error message means that the card is corrupted or formatted for another digital camera. Turn off the camera. Insert a new card or format the card. CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.
