Welcome to Mac-Forums, drummonds.

It's a bad idea to reformat a media card using a computer because the computer puts all sorts of junk that it will understand but not necessarily the camera.

Did you try reformatting the card using your camera instead? That would be best.

And partitioning a media card?!? That's a sure way of losing the card all together.

You should still be able to put it into the camera and format it in the camera menu's

Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System
