That's what I thought too but, even though the BB recognized that a memory card was inserted, it still said it needed to be formatted. Anyway, in the end after doing a little more digging, I found a solution that worked. I can't remember if it was this site or a different one, but I found a post somewhere that suggested removing the battery with the memory card installed and, once reinstalling the battery, trying to format the card. It worked perfectly. Simple solution to a frustrating problem.
Thanks to the two of you for the input.
