Default S404 fomating CF card problem

I accidentally formated my CF card on the PC running XP and was not able to use it in the camera. Apparently, the camera recognizes FAT 16 only. After hours of search on the internet, I was able to find the solution. Hopefully, this will help someone out.

Direct from the Minolta-europe website:

"When customer format the memory card over 32MB using the Windows XP format function, the file system default becomes “FAT32”.
All Minolta digital cameras (and most digital cameras on the market) do not support FAT32. Please make sure to change the file system to “FAT”, when you want to format the memory card over 32MB using the Windows XP format function. If you format the card under “FAT32”, please reformat it under “FAT” file system. "

If you run Win98 under FAT32, you may run across a similar problem.
