Card not initalized
\015 When I turn on my camera - finePix A340, it says''card not initialized'' and when i connect my camera to computer unable format this card. What does this mean? and how do get to take photos again?\015
Forget the computer...the card needs to be formatted in the camera. This can be found in the setup menu. This will completely erase the card so if you have any pics on it, download them first using a card reader if necessary.
