Question about Fuji FinePix F20 Digital Camera
I recieved wonderful help from you this morning concerning the "card not initialized!" situation. Your directions fixed it. I then proceeded to take a few shots and using my external download device called DYNEX, I successfully saw the device appear on my desktop of my G5 Mac. When I went into the device to extract the Photos the folder was locked. I then removed the memory card and put it back in the camera to try taking more pics and the same sign showed up "card not initialized!". I re-did your instructions and removed it again. But what am I doing wrong? When I first got the camera two years ago I never saw this. Now it happens all the time. Is there some maintenance or something that needs to be done to restore it to its original operation level?
Glad I helped the first time.Let's see if I do as well again. What I often see when memory cards are used in external reader (especially with Macs), is that the Mac writes files back on the card. Usually the file(s) are just data files and don't really do anything, until the camera tries to access the card. Camera says "I don't recognize that file. I sure didn't create it", and proceeds to reject the card. Usually if you open the card in the computer, you'll see a file or folder that wasn't there before (other than the one the camera creates). It may be a hidden folder, so you might need to change settings to show hidden files also. If you delete that unneeded file, the camera should recognize the card again, without having to re-format it.
