Finepix a120 I have the above cammera that is telling me that the card is not initialized, how can I initialize the card so I can take pictures
CARD NOT INITIALIZED
I don't know what memory card you are using but if it has a m or h on it it proably is not compatible w/out a firmware update-almost all cameras allow a card to be used w/out initalizing-see if you can format card in menus-will lose data-if nothing works assume it's type of card

WHen I put it in and turn on the camera it says "memory card requires formatting" I press Continue and it tells me everything will be deleted...I press Continue and then it says it's formatting only it takes me right back to the initial "memory card requires formatting" screen.

When I try to take a picture with my Canon PowerShot Camera is tells me that the card is locked and will not take a picture. However, the card is not locked. The camera does this with all cards that are put into it.
If you've tried the card's slide switch, and it's still showing locked, it's likely that the locking switch inside the camera's card slot is stuck. If you look inside the slot on the side of the slot where the SD card slide switch would be, you'll se ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

Format error I have a Samsung digimax A40 camera. I 've just purchased a Lexar 4gb SDHC card. When I've tried to format the card for use, the screen comes up initially with "card error", then a screen to format - yes/no. When I press on yes, it takes a few moments and then comes up with Format Error, and turns itself off. Any suggestions on how to overcome this? We are heading away on holiday soon and wanted a bigger sd card as I currently only have a 256mb card in it. Thanks, Tracey.
I don't believe the camera can handle a card of that size. I believe the camera only supports up to 512MB cards, anything above that is not guaranteed. \015\012\015\012 ... Samsung Digimax A40 Digital Camera
