In order to update your EKP you need a CF reader, you cannot update your CF without it. First of all download and unzip the update files from our support section. Enable the show of hidden files. Create on your Desktop the folder 'Old CF' and copy in it all the files from the CF (is the backup folder if something goes wrong). Omit to copy the 'CHARTS' folder. Create on your Desktop the folder 'New CF' and copy in it the same files you copied in 'Old CF'. Replace the files format swx in 'New CF' with the ones you downloaded from internet. Ovewrite the files in the cF with the ones in 'New CF' (do not touch the CHART folder). Turn on the EKP and verify if the procedure was correctly executed. If not, reinstall in the CF the files from 'Old CF' and repeat the procedure. NOTE! : this procedure can delete all user marks from the RAM. Save them first in the CF with File Manager. NOTE! For the update of 21/oct/10 you will need to update the Jeppesen cycle to !
install the card, turn the camera on, go into the menu and find format. It will tell you that when you format you will also erase the contents of the SD card. Click yes and format the card. Thats it. Joe
Have you tried formatting these cards in your camera? You will find the setting in the menu as per page 26 of the manual.
Also check that the correct card type is set for xD or CF as appropriate.

I dont know about formmating CF sandisk card with canon A70, however, i can recommend another method: hook it up to your desktop and format it through a CF adaptor. It may take a couple of attempts. it didnt do any damage, at least not one that im aware of. Im not 100% sure though, so don't get me responsible in case it will damage yours. anyways, if you do it, you can try the process described above.
