Problem Formating a CFast card on a 6K Pro

PostMon Sep 27, 2021 12:47 am


(I may have also mistakenly posted this in the Cinematography section. Sorry about that.)

I am a new BM 6K Pro user. I just started up the camera and am following the manual. I am attempting to format the CFast card which is in the camera. The manual says:
Preparing Media on Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
1 Tap either storage indicator at the bottom of the LCD touchscreen to enter the storage manager.
2 Tap ‘Format CFast card’ or ‘Format SD card’.
I have tapped the CFast icon at the bottom of screen and nothing happens. It does not take me to the storage manager. Therefore, I'm not able to format the card.

Please advise. Thank you!
