      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Put it back on your computer. It should show up as a drive such as D,or whatever the next drive letter is. If it doesn't pop up with a new window just go to "My Computer" and it will be there. Right click on that drive (your memory card) and choose "format" That should work for you.

If the card is used in a camera or phone, it's often necessary to do the format process with the specific camera or phone it's used with.

This is because in the process of formatting, the device may create special folders that are not created with the reformatting process done by a computer.

Whoaru99 is correct but my understanding is wandering was having trouble doing the format in the camera or did not have the format option or did I misunderstand?

You should always if possible do the format in the device, it does retain and re-arrange your folder and file system structure. If you are having problems you can reformat in a computer which hopefully will now allow you to reformat again with the card in the device. This will re-set up your "DCIM" folder and other system files for your device.

I ALWAYS reformat my card before I use it for a shoot. I also try to avoid "deleting" or using the "delete all" option to EMPTY the card. Deleting seems to introduce flaws in the file system leading to read errors like the one wandering has. I do delete individual shots, not the whole card, but after doing multiple backups I then reformat the card in the camera again.

I have successfully formated cards in a computer, and most cards will recognize and re-load your settings after you put it in the camera with out a format. I just like to play it safe and reformat again in the camera after a computer format. In 6 years of high volume (75,000+ images per year) I've never had one memory card error or failure. Knock on wood!

Ok now one of the cards stopped working again. Now when I stick the card in my computer it doesnt even reconize it at all, and if I try to click on the drive it wont open it and just has the hour glass. Is the card bad now? Or is there a way to save it?
