A digital camera's Format command is used to prepare a removeable CompactFlash memory card to accept digital image information from the camera. A card should be formatted when: * the card is new and has never been used before. * the card was used in a different camera or other device that accepts CompactFlash cards. * the card has become "corrupted" and will not store additional images.

I have a finepix S602Z and when i turn it on it comes up as card error this happens on different cards any ideas on how to correct this please

I suggest you take the batteries out and wait two minutes and reinsert them. Making sure that they are inserted correctly. If this doesn't work, try replacing the batteries with new ones.

If you formatted the memory card using your computer, or deleted images using your computer, you now need to Format the card with the CAMERA. One of the camera menus will have a Format command.
This is what FujiFilmUSA.com has to say about the Card Error:

When you recieve a "Card Error" or "Card Not Initialized" message, this indicates that your memory may be temporarily corrupted. This can be due to not formatting your memory card on a consistent basis. Most consumers will use the "delete all" feature and continue to take pictures. By doing this, the file format of the card may become unstable.

We recommend formatting your memory card in your camera after saving the images from your previous shooting session. Once a memory card is formatted, the images will not be recoverable.

I have the same camera with the same problem. You can try formatting the card using the camera. With the camera set as if you are going to look at what's on the card, press the Menu/OK button. Move up to the word Format, press Menu/OK button, FORMAT OK? should display. Press Menu/OK button. This will format your card. Unfortunately, I think there is something wrong with my camera. Still getting 'card not initialized'.

Download all images into your computer that you want to save, put the card into it's adapter, then place it in a computer with a type II PCMCIA socket and run a DOS format command. After reformatting, the card will have 16MB available.

CompactFlash storage card

Make sure you're using an ATA-compatible Type-I CompactFlash memory card. Make sure you've installed the card correctly. The card's label should be facing the front of the camera, and the arrow(s) on the label should point in.
