I have a vivicam 355 and a 32MB compact flash card! when i thy and take pictures with the cf card in the camera it reads busy and then askes me if i want to format the media! i can take about 12 pictures with the card out and i have no problems with that unformatted message popping up. Im really in a bind here because i have no idea what to do or how to format the card, or do i need a new card and if so could someone please tell me what a good one would be!
