Should I format and/or “prepare” the CF cards to be used with the D500X?

D500X version 1 firmware required the CF cards to be formatted and then “prepared” with the D500X Utility program. The preparation step has been eliminated in version 2 firmware, so from version 2 and on, the CF cards should only be formatted in Windows (as FAT32), not “prepared“. Consequently, the preparation command has been removed from the current version of the D500X Utility program.
