Having problems with your Fuji FinePix A340 Digital Camera ?

Memory card not initialized

\015 I stupidly thought that the Olympus xD Picture Card M+ 1 GB into an SD Card reader on my laptop--even though it was more than spacially clear that the SD reader is larger than the xD Picture Card. After retrieving the Olympus Card, I put it back into the FujiFilm Finepix Z20 camera and now I am getting an error message that reads "Card not Initialized". \015\012Is there a way to reformat the card and retrieve the data on it?\015
