Smart media card

My camera informs me that the card needs initialising. Solutions suggested that it needs reformatting. How do I do this - I have a card reader as part of my Epson RX620 printer.

In playback mode on the camera (green arrow on selector switch - or middle option if the legend has worn off) press

menu/ok -> select format -> menu/ok ->menu/ok to confirm

Any pictures on the card will be lost

Best of luck

I have my Fuji camera MX-1700 Zoom and Microsoft 7 . Camera is full of pictures and this camera does not use a USB cord but I have the ones that come with the camera plugged into the computer. What do I do...


If you don't have a card drive on your system that will accept the Smart Media memory your camera uses, open 'My Computer' and look for a 'mass storage' drive with an unfamiliar drive letter; 'K' is fairly common for cameras. Assuming you have the camera plugged into USB, you can 'open' the drive with Explorer and treat it as you would any other storage medium and copy, transfer or delete files right on the Smart Media card.

Card not initialised.


You need to download the pics to your computer using a card reader. Then, format the card in the camera to completely erase and initialize it.

I cant change the file format on my fuji finepix s602 how can i do it


I'm no expert - just visiting this forum for a 'card not initialised' problem on the same model. If you a have look in the solution to 'card not initialised' problem raised elsewhere in this forum someone has helpfully explained how to format the card (if that is your problem) by using a DOS command in Windows (scroll to bottom as the advice that was initially given was corrected). You will need a USB card reader to do it. The format of the media card seems to be FAT.

However if you mean you want to save the images in .raw data form I had a look in the manual but there doesn't seem to be an option in the s602 to save in anything other than .jpg - unless someone else knows more.

Card not initialised shown on the screen


That means the card needs to be formatted in the camera. This will erase it so download the pics first.

Transfering from smart media card to cd


Hi,

The simplest would be to read the contents of the media card/camera connected through the USB port of a PC and burn it on the PC's CD/DVD burner. Alternately, instead of the camera/USB/PC/CD burner, you can use a memory card reader for the memory card. Requirements would then be:
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

"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

! Card Error Message


I've had similar problem when I was messing around with the Sony memory stick. The cheap pins inside that suppose to touch the memory got screwed up. I just bought the camera so took it back to the store and got a different one. Anyway, try shining a flashlight into the memory slot and see how the pins are. If they are not line up then use a really small something to re-line them like they suppose to. See if it's possible to reformat the memory. That sometime help too. It happened to my sis cell phone. We had to reformat the memory stick to get it working right. I do not think this have anything to do with battery. If you don't put memory in and camera say "No memory" and with memory in and it read "Mem error" then likely the reader or the pins are screwed up. Goodluck.

Smartmedia Panorama mode


I don't know what you are doing, but my Nikon 4500 has a panoramic feature. It has nothing to do with the memory card. When you put it in panorama mode, on the second and subsequent shots, it shows about 1/3 of the previous shot in the viewfinder. You line that up with your present shot, and take the picture. The Nikon software, on a computer, can probably stitch the photos back together. You can do the same thing in an image editing program.
