When I put a brand new card in my camera, I get the error “Card Not Initialized”. What does this mean, and how do I correct it?


If it is a brand new card, you can safely format the card without worrying about losing any images. Follow your camera’s instructions on how to format a memory card. If you have previously used the card to take photos, the card has likely become corrupted. See the section how to handle corrupted memory cards.
