Having problems with your Fuji Finepix S9600 Digital Camera ?

Keeps coming up as card not initialized? Is not new card and hasn't happened before.


Answers :

Don't worry. Take the card out, firstly, and try wiping it with a dry soft cloth. Then put it in again and see what happens.\015\012
\015\012Fuji suggest reformatting/reinitializing from time to time. It keeps the card's system files in order. You can reformat using the approach on p104 of the manual, which is here:\015\012

\015\012However, before you reformat/initialize, make sure you don't have any images on the card that you've not transferred to your PC and/or don't want to lose. If you have such images, it is better you try to repair the card OR simply try viewing it first on a PC before reformatting. If someone you know has a card reader or slot on their PC that will read cards, try reading your card via a PC and if the files are corrupted on the card [unlikely] use commercial software to repair the file system on the card.

"Card Locked" The "card locked" message keeps coming up even though my memory card is not locked. I bought a new memory card, and put that in, but it still says "card lock."
