Hi, had a rio carbon for two years and it now it broke.. the wheel for turning up the vol broke.. so i took the CF drive out... can't seem to be able to format the FC using a dazzle card reader... Can i get some HELP on the subject?

You'll have to try a variety of new card readers. Your Rio Carbon drive prob only runs in TrueIDE mode, and many if not most USB CF readers run CF devices in memory mapped mode.

The drive from your Rio Carbon is not really a CF drive even though it looks like it. Similar results are experienced by folks removing them from Apple iPods/iPod Minis and not being able to use them in their digital cameras.
