When I do an in-camera format of a memory chip by pressing Mode & Trash, the formatting seems to never end. The “For” indicator will stay on for hours if I let it. If I turn the camera off and back on the “For” goes away and the camera works correctly saving to the CF chip. If I do a memory format via the menu command it formats quickly.

Has anyone else experienced this? Or is there something I don’t understand?

Thanks. Cal
