The S7000 has always been known to have some problems with regular CompactFlash cards, with both power drains and limitations reported (the S7000 seems unable to handle CompactFlash cards above 2GB, as it doesn't support FAT32). I imagine it's possible that there are other potential problems associated with this.

It's usually recommended that, instead of using CompactFlash cards, you use either xD-Picture Cards or IBM/Hitachi Microdrives, which are both fully compatible with the S7000.

My S7000 has the message "card not initialized"


The S7000 cannot handle cards larger than 2GB.
If you need 4GB you can also fit a 2GB type 2 compact flash card which is the american standard.
For europe you will get a type 1 card this will also fit it is just slightly thinner.

Finepix s7000 new 4gb card not initialized fujifilm cf


The S700 as it came from the factory CANNOT use a 4 gig card. You must go to the Fuji USA website and download the firmware update. You will need to have the program that came with the camera installed, and the cable that also came with the camera. Make sure that you have fresh batteries in the camera. Instructions are on the Fuji website along with the download for the firmware. You are actually going to "flash" the firmware in the camera just as if you were doing a BIOS flash in your computer. Personally, I only use smaller cards and remove the pics soon after I take them. A 2 gig card will hold about 150 full rez pics. Get them out of the camera....don't save them forever on the card!

Can't initialize SanDisk Ultra II for S7000


try formatting it in the computer, then initializing it in the camera.
It's possible that the camera can only handle memory up to 1Gb. Try a 1g CF card.

Can't initialize SanDisk Ultra II for S7000


It looks as though the camera cannot support memory as high as 4GB. Capacities above 2.2 GB require that your camera supports "FAT32", and S7000 does not support FAT32.

How big of memory cards will work with the FUJI S7000


The easy answer is..... 2 Gb.

The longer answer entails fat16 vs fat32 abilities, and the posibility of reformatting your card on the computer in an attempt to possibly get the s7000 to recognise it with mixed success. Since the s7000 is fat16, it can recognise only 2Gb of data.

The xD cards max out at 2Gb. CF goes much higher, but only 2Gb will be recognized.

On a related note, if you do continuous shooting or movies and use an xD card, make sure you get the H-type (not M or M+) as this is higher speed and will avoid timing issues. All of the newer CF cards are plenty fast already.

"Card Not Initialized with 4GB CF memory card"


Steve, S700 and S7000 are different beasts.

S7000 is only rated for 1Gb compact flash cards. It apparently works with 2Gb ones but as I and a lot of others have discovered no matter how you tweak around sectors and clusters it won't read the thing.

This is a Fat16 limitation.
