    Has anyone else seen an issue with the FT3D where the SD card's "FORMAT" menu item is unresponsive? Plugged a new 32G SanDisk SD card into the unit, powered it up, then went to the SD Card menu. All functions on the menu worked except for the FORMAT option. Touching it, or pressing the DISP button with it selected did nothing. After turning the radio off and back on, then navigating to the SD Card menu again the FORMAT option worked fine. Also noted that the BACKUP function did the same thing a few minutes later. Powering off then back on allowed the BACKUP option to work. Anyone else noted this quirkiness? Software version is 1.01, DSP is 7.02.

    I just had that issue. I've actually noticed several times particular menu items not working. I didn't think to try them again after an on/off, so at leaset you've helped me advance a bit. I just thought there was something I was doing wrong.

    I had the same issue when I received my FT3D last week. I reseated the card in the slot,a I was able to format it in the radio and I haven't had the issue since.

    Not the same issue on an FT2D, but was using the SD card to make some programing changes so I didn't have to locate the cable. Using the buttons to navigate the SD card menu the last step requires I touch the OK on the screen for the function to work or I just got the double beep. It took 30 minutes of my time I will never get back to figure out that out. I seem to recall I had to open the manual.
