You just need to format the memory card again, go to the set up menu and format. you will loose any pictures that you may have on but it will work again. you can download a manual for your camera, the fuji finepix s5100 at the following link and following the steps to format the memory card on page 76. here is the link: http://www.rug.nl/rechten/voorzieningen/audiovisueledienst/productendiensten/handleidingen/finepix_s5500_manual.pdf

Card not initialized


If the 'CARD NOT INITIALIZED' error appears:
First check that the SmartMedia is inserted in the correct direction. You can also try wiping the gold-colored contact area on the SmartMedia with a soft cloth.
Remove the batteries from the digital camera, leave them for at least an hour and then reload the batteries and check whether the camera recognizes the SmartMedia.
If the 'CARD NOT INITIALIZED' error still appears, contact the store where you purchased the camera or the nearest FUJIFILM authorized service center in your country.

Not initialized or card error


If your new card has an "H" or "M" before the 1Gb, your camera is probably not compatable with it unless a firmware upgrade is performed. This can be done by the user, with help and the software download from Fuji' website.

It sounds like your XD card is corrupted. How and why i couldn't tell you. You will need to get the pictures recovered from the card using a special software (image recovery software, can down load for free from some web sites, or some companies can try and do it for you) and then try and format the card in the camera. DO NOT FORMAT THE CARD BEFORE YOU RETRIVE YOUR IMAGES. If you do all traces of the images may be lost.

All the best and happy snapping.

Hello


  • 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.

    Initializing xd card


    Put the camera into play or review mode then hit the ok/menu button on back and format the card. This will erase all of your photos so make sure you've backed them up or download them.
