Stupid question time: how to format SD card?

I have the manual, but all it says is "You can select the SD memory card in the SD1 or SD2 slot and format it."

I can select just fine, but I see no option to format and yes I have SD HC cards in the slots and even managed to write to them while they were formatted for use in another device.

Thanks fort any help.

The formatting option is in the setup menu.

OK, that helps. And I'll call it "wrench - 4". Thanks!
