Compact Flash Card formatting on Mac and shotput pro

Hi

I've come across a problem formatting Compact Flash Cards on a Macbook Pro. I'm using them in a nano flash recorder, recording MXF files and once I have downloaded the footage I use Disk utility to format the cards. No matter what I format them as, the Nano Flash always displays "Unknown Format" and I have to do it again in the Nano flash recorder.

Also I have just downloaded Shotput Pro which is excellent, however on the website it says to download a codec depending on what format/cards you are using so that you can use the option to format the cards after they have been downloaded. There isn't a link to format Compact Flash MXF files, does anyone know where I might be able to find on?

Many Thanks
Suz

I'd stick with the Nano Flash formatting- it probably has some firmware requirements that the OS level formatting you're trying on your computer will never get quite right. Only takes a couple of seconds right?

Yeh it does, but were dealing with 7 cameras all out shooting, and the runners are going to be coming back to us constantly throughout the day so I wanted an easy way to name the disk for when they come back and throw them at us :(
