    for some years I have been formatting my CF cards using a 4-slot card reader. This
    worked fine and the camera always accepted the formatted CS.
    Some days ago I installed a new PC running under Windows XP. After formatting some CF
    cards on the XP computer the camera doesn´t accept the card anymore.
    Any suggestions how to solve the problem?

    You are probably formating the card using FAT32. Many cameras won't accept
    this. Windows XP gives you the options of FAT32 and FAT. Be sure to use
    FAT! This will probably solve your problem.
