I have purchased 2 CF cards for my Fuji Finepix S7000.

1. Kingston Compact Flash Elite Pro 1GB 50X Type 1

2. IBM Microdrive 1GB Type 2

After formating these in the camera, Dos Prompt in FAT16 & FAT32, and Right clicking on drive letter and selecting "format", The camera will still not accept these cards. The camera manual directly references the IBM microdrive as the card of choice.

Can someone please give me an answer as to why this might not work?

I'm getting to the point of pulling my hair out!!!!

The Kingston Elite Pro is not compatible with some cameras like the Kodak slrn. That may be your problem with this CF. Don't know about the IBM

It sounds like you are trying to format the cards with your computer, even though they are in the camera. I would suggest using the camera menu to format the cards, and not connect to the computer until afterwards.
