Fuji A200 xD card uninitialized

\015 The cord came out just before downloading and the card is uninitialized.\015\012The directions say re-initialize -- great - how? No tab on left side of card - just a notch.\015

Answers :

OK There are 3 problems that  a company like Fuji should have avoided:\015\012
\015\0121. Directing one to "re-initialize" the chip and not providing any directions for doing so.\015\012
\015\0122. Calling it "initializing" in the menu and "formatting" in the camera menu.\015\012
\015\0123. Building a camera that blitzes the chip when the USB cord is accidentaly disconnected without following the ritual.\015\012
\015\012The FIX: Turn the camera on. > Switch from the red camera icon to the green arrow icon on the ring around the shutter button. > Press the "menu/OK" button. > Under the "Erase" menu, scroll up to "Format." Press "Menu/OK" button. > Re-format (aka "re-initialize') the chip and lose all images stored on it. Whoppeee!
