Default Can't remove folder from CF card after formatting

My problem is that I can't remove a folder on my CF-card after formatting the card in my Nikon D70. The folder is empty. All other folders were removed OK.
Thanks for any help.

When you shoot, where are the files put? Are they being put into that folder?

I have two folders now. One is NCD70 and the other is CONOR. If I don't select CONOR for my photos they go into NCD70. If I select the CONOR folder, the photos are stored there. Now I put photos in both folders and confirm.
Next, I format the card. Both folders are now empty but the folder names remain. What folders should remain, if any, after formatting?

Thanks for your help.

Sounds like time to check the camera manual. Both cameras I have create their own folders when I format the cards. One of them is set up to create a new folder for the date, so when I start up the camera for the day, it creates a folder for the date. It also has a camera data folder which (I think) holds info such as DPOF, and slide show sequences. The other just has the initial folder and puts everything in it.
