Compact Flash card not initializing.

The other day I was transfering some pics off of my Fuji S602Zoom camera onto my laptop, when I got an error on my camera saying "Card Not Initialized" I tried a few things, but could not get rid of the error. I was looking around online and found a post where someone had the same problem and fixed it by connecting the USB cable to a different computer. I tried this by connecting it the USB cable to my desktop computer and was able to access the pictures on the camera. I copied them off and then restarted the camera, still got the error. So I went into Windows Explorer, right clicked on the 'Removable Drive" that was my camera, and selected format. After the formating, I tried my camera again, and still got the error.

Is my card fried (if so, why was I able to copy the pics off of it?)? If not, does anyone have any idea how to fix it?
