    @Backlighting, it wasn't your fault. It's a general problem here that someone comes along and asks a specific question, to which there is a specific answer. However, what the questioner really wanted to achieve was something unmentioned, and there may have been a better way to accomplish it than the way the questioner asked. But if we ask "Why? What are you trying to do?" we sometimes get blowback in the form of "What does it matter, just answer the damn question!" So it's a delicate little dance we do, trying to figure out how to be the most helpful.

    So keep coming back, ask questions, but be patient if we ask more before we give a suggestion to you. And maybe be a bit leery of the first suggestion because the suggester doesn't know everything in your situation.

    On your original question, I will second the suggestion to format it in the camera. Or use it just as you bought it, as the default format may well be what the camera is seeking.

    Thanks, and one would have to be a bit crazy to upset and take on a US Army Vet going by your avatar.
