Komputerbay card works OK on PC/Mac but the 5d cant read it.
« on: August 22, 2014, 06:56:51 PM »
Hi, a year ago i bought a Komputerbay 64gb CF card. it didnt work and it was not accesble from my win 7 PC. Amazon returned the cash and they didnt even mind of asking me to return the card.
Now i bought a macbook and surprisingly it could format it and the card now can be used in both pc and mac.
the problem is that my 5d3 still shows a message asking me to format the card and when i try it it says "Cannont format , change card1".
Question: is there any low level editor or trick i can do for getting the 5d to read the card?
Thank you very much in advance.

Which format did you use on the Mac? Try FAT32 or exFAT.

Try reformatting to FAT32 with the PC, maybe some luck.

No luck with FAT32 unfortunately.
