    i have no idea how to reformat the card. there are no instructions on how to do this.

  • blondi72681 Aug 22, 2008

    Already successfully downlowded pictures, but removed the device incorrectly which caused the problem.  Just now replaced batteries, reinserted card -- got message "card not initialized."  It's an EXPENSIVE card - very upsetting.

    What a relief!! Re-connecting the card reader and the memory card to the computer and then disconnecting it correctly worked!!! The memory card is now readable in my camera. THANKS!

    If you have a Card reader wher you can put the Memory card of the camera on it , then connect the Card reader to a computer on its USB port , that way you can access the content of the memory card then you can also format it that way...

    If camera does not read the card after trying to replace it , then you will have to connect camera to computer and try transferring pictures to computer.
    If it still does not work try using a Card Reader to extract picture, card will appear as a removable disk on computer.
    If computer is still telling you card is not formatted after doing the above, then card format had been damage , there is a good chance you have lost pictures on card , and in some case you need to replace card.

    here you can get Memory Card Reader

    To re format the card connect to a card reader on computer, open 'Computer' (Vista) or My Computer (XP), there you find your card listed as a removable disk.
    Click right button of mouse on card.
    Chose format , setting FAT32.
    You wont be able to recover any data after formatting card.
    You could also format from camera, but when card gives troubles, better using a card reader.
    If card still does not work after formatting then card is faulty, you need a new one. This can happen if you lost power , battery ended , or unplug usb while downloading files from camera.

"initialize" means to format the card in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics first using a card reader if necessary. Then, with the card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" or "initialize" and follow the on-screen instructions.
