error using fits_write_image in Matlab


I am trying to convert .raw images taken with a camera to fits format using a matlab script which is choking at fits_write_image command. The error is:

"??? Undefined function or method 'fits_write_image' for input arguments of type 'char'."

I already have downloaded cfitsio and fitsio. Does anyone know why I am getting this error and how to fix it?
