Hi, yes they should. Have you tried formatting through the menu system on the LCD? It's more intuitive than using the two-buttons, and you can verify that it's done more easily.

Happy shooting, Tony.

p.s Also the menu system allows you to select memory cards if you are using two. Not sure, but the two-button formatting may only format card one.(?)
