Initializing card on fujifilm e500

\015 I have been using the same card for a long time and now it shows up not initalized since the last time I erased the pictures. How do I initialize it?\015

Answers :

You need to reformat the card. Find the menu item, probably under 'System', or something like that, and reformat it. You should reformat your card every time you download you photos anyway, else the card can fail. If it won't reformat dump it and get another one.
