Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I'm new to this pro camera world. After using a card reader (usb) with my laptop I put the card back in the camera and now I am getting this message on my screen, "Card not initialized". Why and did I do something wrong? It's a Fuji FinePix S2 Pro, please help I just starting using and hate that this has happened! Thanks, Kristie



Answers :

Sounds like you didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function when you pulled out the card reader. If there are pictures on the card you want to save, use the card reader again and download them to your computer. Then, put the card in your camera and go into the menu and find "format" (may be called "initialize" on your camera) and follow the on-screen instructions.
