Don't worry. Take the card out, firstly, and try wiping it with a dry soft cloth. Then put it in again and see what happens.
Fuji suggest reformatting/reinitializing from time to time. It keeps the card's system files in order. You can reformat using the approach on p104 of the manual, which is here:
http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/manuals/pdf/index/s/finepix_s9600_manual_01.pdf
However, before you reformat/initialize, make sure you don't have any images on the card that you've not transferred to your PC and/or don't want to lose. If you have such images, it is better you try to repair the card OR simply try viewing it first on a PC before reformatting. If someone you know has a card reader or slot on their PC that will read cards, try reading your card via a PC and if the files are corrupted on the card [unlikely] use commercial software to repair the file system on the card.

My phone keeps telling me that my SD card has been removed but it hasn't been. I've tried taking it out and putting it back in but it keeps telling me the same thing


maybe because your phone don't recognize your SD card anymore. try to put your SD card to other phone and try if the other phone recognize your SD card, if the other phone don't recognize your SD card, the problem is in your SD card. you should buy a new SD card if that's the case. Also try to put a different SD card on your phone and you'll see your phone will recognize the different SD card.
Kindly rate this post. Thank you for your question and I hope I help you a lot.

Keeps saying card not initialized why ?


It just means that you need to format a new card in the camera before it will work properly. Go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions.

Blackberry pearl- initialization problem


I had the same problem and find the answer on other forum http://forums.crackberry.com/f85/huge-problem-about-initialization-failed-sos-113323/ I used some scotch tape and worked perfect for me, the idea is to make the sim card a litle "fat" to fit the contacts.

Good luck

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.

Card not Initialized


Can you get into your camera's menus? If you can, there should be an Option under your Setup menu to Reformat card that might fix the problem. This happens sometimes with the memory cards, they just need to be reset. Unfortunately you can lose your photos sometimes when it happens, so if it's happening a lot you should buy a new memory card.

CARD NOT INITIALIZED.


You will have to format it. Keep it in the camera and go through the manual's instructions for doing this, sorry but this sometimes happens.
