Hey abbers,
\015\012 What is most likely going on is your computer formatted the card to it, and the card needs to be formatted to work in the camera. What you should do is choose to format the card when you get the message "power off or format". Directions on how to format the card are on page 143 of your camera manual and I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you no longer have yours. I hope this helps!

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory. The memory card I am using is the same one I used a few months ago and I saved the pictures I took to a computer and erased the pictures off the card. Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year. Please HELP!

The CF card in the wife's S9500 has ceased to be read via the USB cable in both Windows XP and Linux (both systems saw the camera before as an external drive). I cannot think of anything I have done to cause this. The card has integrity and we managed to get the 400+ photos off onto CD's via a PC in the local photo shop. I have re-formated the card and tried every setting I can find on the camera but..... no connection via USB seen.... can anyone help here please? Thanks - Peter

Since the card seems to be working (you can take pictures and view them on the screen afterwards) the problem must be with the USB. I assume Linux and XP is on 2 different computers? If, not, it could also an electrical error with the USB ports. ... Fuji FinePix S9500 Zoom Digital Camera
