Try formatting through the computer rather than from within the camera itself. Or, just open the card on the computer, select all, then delete. There's probably a large file in there somewhere that the camera just doesn't have enough ooomphh to move out.

Hope this helps. :)

- Error message asking to re-format the flash card.
- Error message that the flash card is not formatted.

To resolve the above error, backup your data and reformat your memory card in FAT file system.
If the error persists, re-format the memory card using your camera or portable device.

A camera memory card should always be formatted IN the camera.
Do not format camera memory cards in a computer card reader.

If the card is formatted in the camera and after that the same error pops up,
you should replace the memory card and recheck.

#1
Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
#2
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
#4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
#5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
#6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

We insert a memory chip into our Kodak EasyShare C190 camera. The read-out informs us that the memory card requires formatting. We click on "OK." The camera goes into a "formatting" mode, then informs us...


Your camera is only supporting SD/MMC Cards (up to 2 GB) and KODAK SDHC Cards (up to 8 GB).
The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card.
You might also need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.1: Menu, Cam settings, Chose AUTO or SD card option Press OK
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

How do I initialize the card?  The camera won't let me shoot, a message pops up says card is not initialized.


Hello,

The manual gives three options if this warning shows.
(1)
The memory card has not been formatted.
To format the card select Format on Setup Menu 1.
(2)
The memory contacts require cleaning.
Clean the contacts with a soft dry cloth.
(3)
Camera malfunction.
Contact a FujiFilm dealer.

"Internal memory requires formatting."


This error message indicates that the internal memory in the camera requires formatting or is corrupt. You must format the internal memory. CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a memory card during formatting may damage the card. (Formatting internal memory also erases email addresses and album names. To restore addresses and albums, see Kodak EasyShare software Help.)
