Can't initialize SanDisk Ultra II for S7000

\015 I've attempted to upgrade from the original xd Picture Card 16MB to a SanDisk Ultra II 15 MB/s 4GB media/memory card. When the CF-II is in the camera alone, it says "Can Not Initialize". When I try to use any of the buttons like Menu/OK and arrows, nothing happens. When I put the old card in, it recognizes it but not the new card. I do not have a slot on my computer at home for either card. I hook the camera up to the computer via USB port to download pictures. Is this new 4GB card unuseable in my camera? Is there another way to initialize the card?\015\012\015\012Will my San Disk 4Gb memory card work with this camera?\015

Answers :

Try formatting it in the computer, then initializing it in the camera.
It's possible that the camera can only handle memory up to 1Gb. Try a 1g CF card.
