Having problems with your Fuji FinePix 3800 Digital Camera ?
How do I initialize a picture card?
\015 When I turn the camera on I see a msg on the screen that says Card not initialized. I do not see instructions in the maual that tells me how to initialize an xD card, only that the card may need to be formatted.\015
Turn the camera viewer on (on your finepix 3800, it is the middle position where you preview photos). Press the "menu" button and you will be presented with four options, and the top option is FORMAT. Select format and your card will be usable again. Two things to keep in mind. Any pictures on the card will be lost, and when you press the menu button as I described it may take a few seconds before those four options appear. As an FYI, the most common cause of the card needing to be reformatted is when the pictures are loaded to a MAC computer and the USB cable is pulled before you eject the camera.

I have about 24 pictures on my XD card and I was trying to .rar them in one file on my PC but it was not working and so I ejected the XD card from the PC reader slot. When I put the XD card back in my camera, the message came up 'card needs to be initialized' (or similar words). I notice that to Initialize, it would erase all the files on the card which I do not want to do. Obviously, something has affected the formatting of the XD card whilst I was trying to zip the pictures. Is there some S/W

I put a 4.0 gb sd card into the camera slot correctly. The camera says that the card must be formatted to work correctly. I format the card, but it just tells me I need to format again. There were pictures on the card initially and after the C643 tried to format, I rechecked and there were still pictures. I deleted all the pictures, and then tried to re-format, however I still get stuck in the format again and again loop. What exactly can I do to correct this problem?

I have an older Vivitar Camera Model ViviCam 6385U. I tried two different memory cards and neither one seems to work. The first Memory Card I purchased was a newer HD card which I realized was the problem. I then went and purchased an older 2GB SD made by PNY. This card goes through the initialization process but no pictures are written to the card.
