Re: D800 won't format card using menu

I have had the same problem with cards that do not work with my D800. It seems it is fussy with memory cards. Is it a kingston card?

In going through the various functions I discovered my D800 won't format either memory card using the menu option. I always format using the buttons so hadn't noticed this before. I choose "format card", select the card, highlight YES in the warning and press OK. Nothing happens no matter how long I wait. Pressing the replay button will show the images are still there. I removed the CF card just to make sure I wasn't misunderstanding anything and went throught the whole deal with the SD card. It doesn't format. Any ideas? Pete
