Having problems with your Fuji FinePix F10 Digital Camera ?
'Card not Initialized'
\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012My fuju F10 finepix is displaying 'card not intitialized' I have taken it out and wiped it, but that didn't work. I have tried to delete all the frames but it won't let me. I'm abroad and don't have my manual with me. I've also forgotten a spare card, so I'm in a bit of a situation. I am reluctant to buy a new one because I have a few at home. \015\012I've even taken the battery out - but that didn't help. \015\012\015\012I need step-by-step instructions! I'm not that technically minded! \015\012\015\012Many thanks!\015\012\015\012FM\015
Still not sure exactly what happened technically, but starting with the FixYa "Best Solution" was the key. I attached the camera to my MacPro laptop, opened the camera-related icon which appears on the screen, and clicked on each of the files that came up. The files disappeared after a few clicks without my having to use "delete", and when I tried the camera again it worked fine.
I just had the same issue with my Fuji F10 Finepix camera and of course all you can get the camera to do is tell you 'card not initialized'...and nothing else works! I resolved it by attaching the camera to the MAC, accessing the camera files thru the MAC by going to the icon that pops up on the desktop for the camera, deleting the files in the camera Fuji directory, then detached the camera and it was all back to normal. I assume that could have also been done the same way on a PC via USB port, accessing the camera via 'My Computer'. I believe the root cause was: I had accessed the photos on the camera via the MAC and iPhoto, then after transferring the photos to the MAC, deleted the photos thru the iPhoto delete option. This in fact did not delete the photos on the camera, somehow causing this 'card not initialized' condition. CW

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.
