Put it in your camera and format it.

DO NOT format in the PC.

Just a thought; will your camera take a 4Gb card?. I suspect not.

Looking at the Steve's Digicam review I see the recommended is a 1Gb microdrive compact flash.

You could ask Fuji:

Their Head office phone number is

01234 217 724

(could not find a specific support number)
