I have a fuji finepix A340 and I just got an Olympus xd M+2GB card for it, but I keep getting the "card not initialized" message on the screen. Reading the blogs, one person said to move the tab on the card. There is no tab on the card to move, at least not mine. Is this a compatable card? How do I get it to work?

I had taken many pics in Florida in the last several days with my camera and then 2 days ago, I tried using the camera and I am getting the message "Card Not Intitialized".

The card is a Fujifilm XD-Picture Card, 1GB. Thanks for any help you can offer. JW

When I recently turned on my camera (D-630 Zoom) to take a picture, I got the message titled Card Setup, with two options "Power off" and "Format". I turned the camera off, took out the memory card (1GB) and put it back in, as I did the last (and only) time this happened, about two years ago. But it has not worked, and I have been getting this message with the two options for a few days. Any ideas? Thank you.


If this exact card has worked in the camera before, chances are it has gone bad. Typically, if the camera says to format the card it is because it does not recognize the card. The only reason this would happen is if the card is unreadable from malfun ... Olympus D-630 Zoom Digital Camera
