SOURCE: card not initialized

Kyle850. I have a fujifilm finepix camera myself, and just recently had the same problem. The camera worked fine until one day I turned it on to take a picture and there was the "card not initialized" message. To fix the problem, just turn on your camera, push the menu button and use the right/left arrow buttons near the zoom button in the top left corner of the camera. Push the right arrow button until you come to the "option" window in the camera's view finder and use the "up" function of the zoom to highlight the "set-up" window. Press "ok", and use the right arrow button scoll over to the "2" tab and press the ok button again. Then use the "up/down" function of the zoom button to scroll down to the "format" tab. Press ok button again and use the "left" button near the zoom in and out button to highlight the "ok" option in the format window. By pressing the ok button here, it will reformat and reinitialize your picture card. If you do have pics already on your pic card, you may want to take your pic card to a photo center and see about recovering these pics before you go through the reformat process because there is a good chance that when you reformat your pic disk any pics on it will be gone. Good luck. SG

Yes, you need to format the card. It should be an option on one of the camera menu listings. Sometimes it can be buried. Go to Major Geeks.com and look through their free program for one to recover deleted pictures. I recovered some of mine.

When turn on the camera 'Card Not Initialized" appears !!??


A couple of steps before sending for repair:
clean points of contact between card and camera. Do this gently and becareful not to get anything stuck in the camera! Lint or any other thing.
Verify you are using the correct card and inserting correctly.
Sometimes simple wear and tear might cause the paths to not read the card anymore. Teleplan Camera Repair can fix this, get your immediate online quote: http://www.teleplancamerarepair.com/

Card not initialized


Go through the setup menu and go to "Set", then option 1 and format. Should do the trick, as long as you don't have capacity issues (how big of a card did you buy?).

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'


try re-formatting the card in the camera. Turn the power on. Wait for the green light. Go to menu/set-up/format and say "yes" to format option. That's the usual fix.

Error message on camera "Card not initialised"


I had a similar issue with my Fuji E500. I had been working with it on my Mac, which automatically brings up iPhoto when it's plugged in via the USB port. When I removed the camera from the USB port, it turned on with a Card not initialized message. If your situation was similar to mine, here's how I fixed it: Plug the camera back into the USB port and turn it on. When iPhoto loads, Got to finder and select Eject (unknown) device. Then, when you disconnect the camera and turn it on, the message about not initialized doesn't show up and you're back in business. I hope this helps.
