I'm able to reformat my cf card via the main LCD menu. Standard for most cameras.

I was intrigued by the "2-button" alternative: press trash can and mode button simultaneously for several seconds, then "FOR" flashes on the monochrome LCD at the top, you have 6 seconds to press both buttons again for a second time, it is this 2nd time that will reformat your card. (Page 43 of manual)

I am unable to do so. the first double-buttoned press works: that is, the "For" does flash on the top LCD, but my 2nd press of the 2 buttons (2 buttons pressed together again, for a 2nd time) does not produce any re-formatting.

May i ask what i'm doing incorrectly?

Thx in advance.
