Rob reports potential problem with Kodak Firmware

Rob Galbraith over at his excellent Digital photojournalism site has noted that one of his readers reported a potential incompatibility between the new v3.0.8 firmware (for Kodak Professional DCS cameras 520 & 560) and Lexar Media cards.
Here's what Rob says: "Apparent conflict betwen v3.08 firmware and certain Lexar cards Two photographers have encountered the same problem as I with the v3.08 firmware update: certain Lexar Media cards have been rendered incompatible with the camera's format function. Of the three cards I've tried, two format fine in my DCS 520. The camera reports, erroneously, that the third has over 39,000 bad clusters. Reverting to v2.03 firmware fixes the problem, suggesting it's a bug in v3.08."
