Default Compact Flash Card Compatibility

I'm considering buying a second portable digital camera for travel, but I would like to continue using my exisiting CF cards on both cameras.

If I format a CF card on my Canon G3 can I use the same cards on a different brand of camera (e.g., Nikon 3100)?

I mix-n-match CF cards all the time between cameras. The only thing that happens is that different cameras use different folder names under the root DCIM folder. This is to our advantage as it keeps the photos separated from each other - unless your two cameras are from the same maker...
