Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S5700 Digital Camera ?

Camera screen says - card not initialized - Fuji FinePix S5700 Digital Camera


Answers :

You need to format the card. There will be a function in the camera setup to do this, or you can do it in a card reader on a computer using the computer's disk format function.

Tho other possibility is that the camera cannot make sense of the card because it is too large a capacity. Memory cards have grown rapidly and even year old computers may not be compatible with the latest high capacity cards.

1- you mast be format your card into FAT and not FAT32
