Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera ?

I turn the caera on and I get a message stating " Card not initialized" Can this be fixed or do I need to buy a new card.



Answers :

It just means that the card needs to be formatted (or initialized) in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics from it first....use a card reader if necessary. Then, go into the camera menu and find "format" (may be called "initialize") and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the card and bring it back to "like new" status.
