Format Memory Card Issue/D800
Apr 24, 2012

I am also embarrassed to post this question. I am trying to format a SD card in my D800. Nothing happens when I hit the format button within the menus. Nothing happens.

I can try and format the card by hitting the two buttons as outlined in the manual...but again nothing happens. The camera does say formatting...but the card when placed in my Mac still has the file structure....of the card prior to formatting.

I am able to shoot and save the files in a folder called D800.

So what am I doing wrong? I have also tried other known cards which format in my D7000.
