    I'm leaving on 2 week trip tomorrow morning and hopefully someone has a
    solution to problem with one of my memory sticks.

    I loaned a 128 mb Lexar memory stick to a friend, who for some reason
    decided to reformat the stick on their computer (Mac) - guess they
    thought they were being helpful cleaning up their files.

    Now when I insert into camera it says "Format Error".

    I went to set-up in menu on camera and hit "Format" but that doesn't
    seem to do anything?

    Is there another way on or off the camera to get this memory stick
    re-formatted so the camera will recognize it?

    it *finally* took! Whew!

    and have him format it for pc
