How to format memory card on D7000?

The manual says hold down the play and trash buttons (on the top left of the back control panel) until Format appears on the LCD display or viewfinder. That doesnt seem to work for me. Anything I'm missing?

Thanks.

I don't have a D7000 but I'm sure if the manual procedure doesn't work for you you can use a menu item.

It's the trash and metering buttons (both have a red format nearby), and the buttons have to be pushed a second time to invoke the format. With two cards it's easier to do from the menu.

+1. Need to press the two buttons a second time while the LCD is showing 'For', then it works a dream... must be safety feature to avoid accidental re-formatting.
