Hi all, first post

recently purchased a K10D. I know it is probably old school to most members but,I am real proud of my purchase. I have the manual,need to format sd card, cant figure out the capture mode, playback mode so I can format the card. I am looking for an ahah moment but not yet. Any help would be a blessing. I am just as new to forums so, I may not be able to find any response. I am struggling here.
Thanks
Tommy

Welcome to the Forums! A K10D is a very capable camera; I was going to get a K5IIs (still will). In the meantime I bought a K10D here on the forums, and loved it so much that I bought another!

To format the card, push the "Menu" button on the back of the camera. Click on the "wrench" icon. In the drop down menu, you will see "Format"; click on this. Do not remove the card until formatting has been completed.

Hope this helps!

Welcome aboard! That Magic Lantern guide is very good for a beginner/intermediate user.

Indeed it is a very good addition to the factory manual.

Welcome to the forum, there's still a big support and following for the K10D around here.
