I often see references to various issues on this and other forums
relating to the need for reformating CF cards. I have actively used
a G2 for three years, an S70 for several months and a 10D for more
than one year. I have used various cards ranging from the Canon
issued 16 MB up through 256 MB, 512 MB and several 1GB
cards.(Canon, Lexar, SanDisk I, SanDisk II, Ritz) I have downloaded
camera to PC, card reader to PC and Laptop and, more recently using
the Epson P2000. I have never needed to reformat any of my cards
for any reason. Why do so many users find the need to reformat
their cards? Am I missing something?
