    finepix a340 need to initialize new picture card

  • Createcrafts Aug 16, 2008

    I have a fuji s5200 xd 512 which I have used many times before. However I have not used this card for about 6 months. Today when I put it in the camera it told me the card was not initialized. The manuel doesn't say how to initialize a card. It is supposed to be somewhere in the menu but I don't know where. Can any one help?

Card not initialized?


The error can be caused by:

1. The xD-Picture Card or internal memory is not formatted.

2. The xD-Picture Card contact area is soiled.

3. a camera fault

for 1.:

Format the xD-Picture Card or internal memory on the camera (p.130)
To format the internal memory or xD card goto format in the setup menu and chose the correct memory.

for 2.:

Wipe the contact area on the xD-Picture Card with a soft, dry cloth. It may be necessary to format the xD-Picture Card

(p.130).

If the message still appears, replace the xD-Picture Card

for 3.: You won't like this one:

Ive been using the xd card on my fuji finepix s5200 for many times and today when I was about to upload the pictures in my laptop the card says it has to be initialized. How do I initialize a card and if...


I hate answering a question with a question but can't see a way around this. Are you using the camera to download pictures to the computer? If so what you need to do is purchase a card reader and I would suggest a card reader that does many different memory card types.

What this card reader does is steps completely around your camera and downloads pictures directly to your computer.

The Card Reader plugs into a USB port on your computer and looks at the reader (once the memory card is inserted) like an external mass storage device or external hard drive.

You then download the pictures from the reader/memory card to a file you create on your computer.

The nice thing about this is that it won't matter what camera you have or memory card you use the camera is no longer in the flow of pictures downloaded to the computer.

After the pictures are on the computer you can put the memory card back in the camera and "Format" the card this function is normally found in the set up menu.

Yesterday I transferred all my pics from the xd picture card to my computer, nad now I keep getting write error message when I take a pic. The manual says that the card is write protected! How did this...


I don't think the XD card has a lock switch (some do) but what I fully expect is that the memory card requires your to format it to the camera you are using it in. You didn't tell me what camera make or model But you did say you have a manual, look for formatting or it may be called initialize. Formatting clean the surface of the memory card and makes it ready to accept new pictures again.

Initializing an xD card


Bonnie,
I think I can help you; please note that this will erase all photos in memory while formatting the card.

Turn camera on, press the Menu/OK button, arrow down until you get to Setup then press the Menu/OK button. Now arrow down to the last item on page 2 which is FORMAT and press the Menu/OK button. Using the left right buttons select OK and press the Menu/OK button, camera will now format the card and you should be back in business.

Let me know how you make out.

Pressing the “MENU/OK” button as you would to erases files. There is an option to format the xD-Picture Card. Formatting erases protected files, but allows you to then take photos.

"Card not initialized" message


Go into the "setup" menu on the camera, and select "format".lem This will reformat the card and should fix the problem. The manual actually reccomends doing this in addition to using the "delete when copied" function in the Finepix program
